Hi,
I'm looking for a way to transparently update my livejournal as I post to my (non-LJ) website. The information in the LJ API seems to be geared towards true client creation, whereas I'm looking essentially to create a web-based update 'client'. I've got HTML with its friends and relations, PHP and Python (Perl as well, but I'm trying to keep my poor site from becoming the united nations of scripting languages) Where could I find the information on doing this?

What sort of thing do you do when you update your site? If it is also a POST command, couldn't you just add a second POST that gets sent to livejournal?

Yes, I could...if I knew the script in question, and the parameters that it wants...is that information available anywhere?

I knew it was there but it took me just a minute to find it... Hopefully this helps!

Oops! Here is the list of all the possible variables when you do that...

I'll look into both of those; the actual scripts which run the site are Python, and most of the db interface is PHP...so this will probably fall under the Python umbrella :) I really appreciate it, thank you!
