Hello, good people of docs! I come to you today bearing tidings of a new feature that is scheduled to go live on the site in the next few days. It is called Selective Screening and there's a post up in [site community profile] dw_dev describing how it works.

In order to explain this new functionality to our users, I believe a new FAQ is needed, with a title like "What is Selective Screening?" that explains what it does and how to use it. It doesn't have to be anything major; something similar to FAQ 58 would be quite sufficient.

I believe the following FAQs should also be updated to mention the feature and/or link to the new FAQ:

  • FAQ 9: How do I control who can comment on my journal?

  • FAQ 59: What can I do about unwanted comments?

  • FAQ 120: What are Dreamwidth's new features?

Thank you for your help!

I've just merged [personal profile] woggy's code for the new Selective Screening feature! I'm planning on making it live on the site in the next couple of days, but in the meantime, I encourage you to test it in your development environment and let me know if you have any feedback. Here is how it works:

There are three console commands that govern who is subject to selective screening in your journal or community. They are screen_set, screen_unset, and screen_list and they are very similar to the related console commands for banning users. The maximum number of users you are allowed to apply selective screening to is 500 per journal/community.

When a user is subject to selective screening, all of that user's comments in the affected journal/community will be automatically screened, regardless of what the entry's screening settings are. The affected user is informed that their comments are being screened when viewing the reply form. The user's screened comments are like any other screened comments and can be manually unscreened, receive screened replies, etc.

This feature was requested back in 2012 and I am excited that it has been implemented!

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.
