This entry was from 2007 (original message was left with a strike-through font).  The process has changed and this message has been edited in 2012.  See most recent replies below.

I think everything is working properly for the favorites. It's accessed off the "Public Diaries" menu bar at the upper left of each screen. To start, you go position your mouse over "Public Diaries", then it should show a new menu entitled "Favorites", position your mouse over it and it should open a new menu with your listed favorites in it. Of course the first time you access it, it will just list a menu option entitled "Edit Favorites", click on it and it should transfer you to a screen with several dropdown boxes with lists of the most recent 500 users to have posted. After you've chosen the ones you want, click on the "update" button. It should then transfer you back to the homepage. Now see if they are accessable in the top menu. When you click on the username of one of your favorites it will take you to the public diary page and list any entries that they've made in the last 7 days. There are a few limitations on the favorites option at present. The available users to choose from only include the most recent 500 posters and the total number of favorites is currently set at 10. Try things out and let me know if you encounter any problems.

Hey DDwebmaster, I ran across my "favorites" list today and wanted to know if its possible to update it. Thanks!

Should be fixed now. When you click on the magnifying glass icon at the top of the page it takes you to the search directory and has your favorites listed. I changed the heading "Your Favorites" to a link that now takes you to a page where you can change or add favorites. It was a quick fix that I didn't test much, so let me know if it's not working correctly.

Thanks!! The page was slow to load up the slots, but I was able to scroll down to find my favorites to fill the slots.However,the ninth slot didnt work at all and the 10th one didnt even show up. Also, when I made my selections, there was no way to save my list. When I went back to the home page to get back to the favorites list, my list went back to my original list.

It sounds like it's "timing out" because of too much data being transferred. If it loads everything, there should be 10 slots and an "update" button at the bottom of the slots. I just changed it so that the lists only contain usernames that have had a post within the past 4 years. Let me know if it's still having problems.
