I've poked around and can't find a way to see diaries I've already read (I want to refer to something I read in a government shutdown diary). I used the search feature but it doesn't show which of the resulting diaries I've already read. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    No, unfortunately, there's no function that would work in the way you're asking about here. When you're looking at a page, the color of the headline will be different if you've opened the link to the story -- with certain important limitations. 1) Unopened = black; opened = brown; 2) the color change shows up with headlines in the sidebar or the pull-down displays only, not on the headline for the full story page/blog page; 3) it's browser-dependent. So, not of any help for the kind of review you're discussing, unfortunately.

    However, you might be able to figure it out if you want to check your browser history. Usually, browsers will let you search your history for certain words, so that could be a productive strategy for you.

    Hope that helps.
