Search for entries

Today I opened the new search function for everyone. It's still experimental so there might be errors. But I hope you like it. You are welcome to reply if you miss something so I can improve it.

Comments on diary entries

Now you can add comments to every diary-entry. This might be useful if you write your diary together with someone else. Maybe you have a diary for each child and you send photos from activities that make you smile or cry and your partner wants to comment on them.

Christmas is near and I might have some spare time to polish maildiary a bit. What do you want as an extension or change for maildiary?

Share entries

Until now there was no way to share an entry with some else. This is still the default-behavior! But if you like to share some of your entries with friends and family, you can activate this in your advanced settings. It's called Share single entries via link.

Then you find a "share"-link if you open a day-view of any entry. Clicking on this link opens a selectbox where you choose the expiration of the link. You can create several links with different expiration-dates. To get the link, click on the button "create a link for". Then a textbox appears from which you can copy the link to send it via email or whatever to your friends and family.

The recipient can only see this one entry and nothing more. They will not have any access to your other entries or your saved values.

If you have sent a link to someone and then deactivate the share-feature, noone can use the links any more and all your public links will be deleted. So, if you are not sure what links are out there you can delete all of them by deactivating the feature and activating it again.

Do you use telegram?

Do you use telegram as an messenger? Would you like to write diary-entries directly from within telegram? Telegram has an very good api, with which this task should be very easy.

Older data

Did you use any other (online-)diary before? Maybe or ohlife? Or did you fill a word-file with your memories? Sometimes I get an email, asking how to insert older entries from other platforms into maildiary. If there is any structure given, a small script can help. Maybe you have this problem and have many old memories you like to insert here. Please write me an email, so I can help you keep your memories together.
