Posting comments from outside LJ? [Oct. 26th, 2004|08:30 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


Hi everyone!

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so please forgive me for the hassle :)
My name is Math, I've been an LJ user for the last two years, and I have a little problem.

Let me explain.

In the firm where I work, the admins have decided to block access to LJ altogether, which pisses me off to no end.
Using the Protocol docs, I managed to hack a simple PHP script allowing me to post entries, but I still miss one of the major aspects of the LJ experience : posting and replying to comments.

So, my question: would there be any way to do so from outside LJ?
Of course, that would require copy/pasting hidden attributes from the real LJ form, but that's not a problem.
Basically, is there a way to send data to www.livejournal.com in a way similar to using the postevent Flat Protocol mode to post comments?

Thanks in advance!

Why not use a cellphone and a WAP gateway? If you're using a PHP script I strongly recommend https connections. Same with using any services mentioned here. If they blocked lj that means someone already noticed your activity, found it unacceptable and took steps to stop it. Is replying to an lj comment really worth risking your job over?
