[recompiler]
Is anyone aware of, or planing to write a client capable of simultaneously posting to movabletype and LJ? If not I am seriously considering merging 2 open source clients into a functional frankenstein.

comments, suggestions?

logjam has most of the guts needed for posting to LJ and Blogger; the MT protocol looks like Blogger's. But the goal was supporting them separately, not simultaneously.

Thanks, looks like a good starting point. I need both because I maintain a weblog that is mostly tech/work related and an lj that is both personal and has a lot of stuff about projects I'm working on. I need to be able to easy select whether an entry gets posted to LJ, MT, or both.

Since LJ supports the Blogger API, any standard blog client can post to LJ.

However, you don't get to enter LJ-specific metadata like userpics, mood, music.

w.bloggar supports posting to both LJ and MT.

I don't know if it's simultaneous.

hi. i just read this thread and downloaded w.bloggar
i realize this thread is a year old, but i can't get my MT plugins to install, so this is pretty much my last hope at being able to cross-post.
i can't log into livejournal from the client though.

what do i insert into the fields for host, path, and port so that i don't keep ending up with an error message?

any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

There's an MT plugin that posts to LJ when you post to MT... MTLJPost? or something like that... o.@ I forget. I had hacked it before to post to multiple livejournals (ie. livejournal clones) and to xanga as well, so I should have it (well, both the original code and my version) somewhere around my old computer.

Last I checked there were 2. Couldn't get either one to work properly. Mind posting your sample (minus log in info ofcoarse)

Oh, hell, completely forgot to reply to this comment... only saw it when I was cleaning out my mailbox.

Will e-mail you the zip file, 'cause I had charged someone for the time spent rewriting the thing to handle multiple lj and xangas (Probably not the most honest thing, since the original author of the plug-in was distributing it free... Eh.. I needed money at the time though, and it's a welcome source of income when one has no real job.). There is no login info, it's not hardcoded in... the user can input it him/herself.

I have been considering using MT on my website so that I could also do tracking on there as well as LJ, could you email that to me as well, if you want, i will host it on my site for a while to save you the trouble.

Mmm, I'd actually suggest getting the offical MTLJPost (hit google, I think I spelled it correctly). It should do what you want and you'd get better support. :P Mine would only be useful if you wanted to post to multiple livejournal or to xanga...

Must of had a misunderstanding as to what your client actually did. Thanks for the information though.

Bleh. Make that your yahoo e-mail, as listed on yahoo profiles, since there doesn't appear to be a better one within 3 minutes of searching.

Don't know if you'll actually get to see this, since it's been some weeks since the last post. I'm looking for a client that will post to LJ and xanga simultaneously. Do you think I could get your version? Or is there one I could find out on the internet somewhere? I don't know too much about clients, so I'm just trying to get some basic research in to figure out what I need to do. Thanks.

Unless you run your own weblog on your own server I'd recommend w bloggar. It's nice, simple and should do what you need.

Well, mine isn't a client, per se, but a plugin for the MT (Movable Type) blogging system.

I already use MTLJCrosspost on my MT blog to post all my entries to LJ. If you have something that can crosspost oto xanga, too, I'd be interested in seeing it. Could you email it to me?

Just wondering what solution you ended up opting with. I have an identical desire to post simultaneously to LiveJournal and my WordPress weblog, with being able to choose which of the two gets posted to with each post (WP, LJ, or both).

An exhaustive search brought up 0 clients that support the Blogger API and the LiveJournal API (though, many use the LJ Blogger API, but that doesn't give you userpic options).

FYI neither the LJPost or LJCrosspost plugins for MovableType seem to work for MT 3.0. I was able to migrate mine from MT2.x to MT3.x but I cannot setup new LJPost instances with new blogs not already created in MT.
