jEdit Community - Resources for users of the jEdit Text Editor
Updating Account Information
Submitted by nyambol on Thursday, 4 March, 2010 - 13:58
Hello,

Two items. First and most important, I had to create a new site identity in order to log in, after I reset the theme of my old account to one of the items in the 'theme's option list. That 'theme' was completely broken, a set of template tags that hooked into nothing. So there was no longer any way for me to do anything on the site, including reset the theme, once logged in. I did email someone identified as being in charge of community development, but nothing happened. This is really poor on two fronts. No one to contact when there are problems, and (IMO) worse, a half-assed deployment of Drupal that includes elements that are not implemented. It seems that it's caveat emptor if you are fiddling around with your account settings.

The second item is that I tried to upload an 'avatar' picture, and that feature seems broken, too. At least, I uploaded a picture (74x85 png) and after saving settings, the avatar setting reverted to 'no file chosen.'

C'mon guys. I know everybody has a real job, but it's just common courtesy and sense to disable functions that you don't want to mess around with. Purge the themes list or disable it altogether. It's not like it would hurt my feelings if I was stuck with the default site look. A broken "feature" is worse than no feature at all.

Thanks.
