Known problem with LJ tags
Apparently during its recent lot of changes, somehow and apparently accidentally LJ managed to disable the use of the slash (/) in tags.

Thus any tags that you may have with a / in them won't work; clicking on them will just take you off to an error page - you'll see Frank!

LJ are 'working on this' but at the moment do not have an estimated time frame for when it might be fixed  :-(

Like many people I have a lot of tags with / in them here on my personal LJ and also on my various communities. And it's not just people with pairings who are irked, many folk use the / for non-pairing things.

At least it's being fixed - the thought of having to change tags here and on comms was a nightmare - I just wish there was some hint of a time frame.

Current Mood: pissed off pissed off

Ah, good old LJ strikes again :(

Do you know if there's any way to track a tag? Say if a fic (yes, the WIP) was being posted in separate tagged parts & you wanted to be notified of updates? I don't want to have to follow a journal, just be bleeped when new parts are posted. I don't think you can, but you're much better at these things than me!

Oh, yes! Where would we be without our weekly/monthly LJ cock-up?

There is, yes. Go to the post you want to track and click on tracky thing as normal. When you get to the next page you get offered a choice of what you want to track.

The second one by tag. 'Someone posts an entry tagged' and you can select from the drop down box what tag you want to use.

Where indeed?! It would be so dull having a service that worked... *g*

Oh you are a star! TYK! *runs off to tag*

Well of course it would.

You are very welcome! Glad to have been of assistance.

*sighs* LJ and their stupid changes. Usually they mess up more than they do good.

Indeed they do.

At least they are going to fix it!

Oh crap.

I guess I'll have to make do with an x for now.

It's all fixed.

LJ got their act together.

You could still type in the /, just if you followed the tag with a / in it, it went hinky.
