Deleting Entries
July 27, 2002

I've made it easier to delete journal entries you don't want. You'll all notice the new buttons named "DELETE This Entry" that now appears just below the entry input box when you are on the page for writing in an entry. It's not there the first time you enter an entry for a given date. But if you go back to that same date to write in it again, the delete button appears. I think it should be pretty obvious how to delete an entry with that there, but just in case, here are the step by step instructions.

If you have already created an entry that you no longer want in your journal, starting at the front page of your journal, click on the month that entry appears in. When you see the date of the entry displayed, click on "Write in My Journal". Then on the page where you select the date to write in, click on the date of the entry you want to delete. After that page appears, instead of editing the entry, or deleting the text and the body as you used to have to do, simply click the "DELETE This Entry" button. The page will be re-drawn and you'll see a verification question that says, "Are you sure you want to delete this entry?" Then you click the button that says, "YES, DELETE This Entry".

After you do that, the entry will be gone from your journal, as if you had never written it. If that entry happened to be the latest entry in your journal, then your journal frontpage will be updated to point to the prior entry as the "Latest Entry". (A long standing bug prevented this from happening when you deleted entries the old way. That is now fixed too.)

I hope you won't go around deleting too many entries. We like to see what you have written. But when you need to, now it's easier, and less buggy, to do it.

Happy Journaling,

P.S. There is still no way to delete an entire journal. I'm afraid once you create it, it's here to stay unless I have some extra time available and feel in a particularly magnanimous mood when you send me a message asking me to delete it. As you can tell, deleting someone's journals is not my favorite request.
