[Life/General] Livejournal, continued

[personal profile] stormerider suggested looking into a Stylish (css modding tool; there are versions for Chrome and Firefox, dunno about other browsers) mod for fixing the comment pages in the interim.

LJ Easier Read changes the font back to Verdana and back to an acceptable size and spacing. LJ Flat Colors changes the colors back to what they used to be.

It is not absolutely perfect. There is still a little too much white space. However, it helps a lot (for me at least), and I'm hoping will reduce my headache/migraine issues. I am at least so far dealing with less eyestrain from the size and spacing of the font.

(I am still not going to be paying for LJ after this, but this hopefully will mean I'll be able to continue reading communities that are using the new comments page instead of switching to a static layout.)

You can also set up the communities as a feed over on DW, btw - it's how I read a couple of the communities I am in. The only downside is that it seems to update the feeds on the hour, so you might get a small amount of lag.. but if you don't mind that, you can literally read anything from LJ on the DW site, as long as you have the permissions to do so.

My understanding was that with the feeds, you could see the content of posts, but if you wanted to read comments, you had to go to the original source (LJ)? Do I misunderstand?

Hmm. I usually read high-traffic communities and would need to compare the comments. I will let you know what I find. You may well be right, though.
