second post this week!

any programs that would help me change the security level of my entries more quickly than going back and changing each entry individually?

thanks!

google 'hidejournal'. That'll get it for you, at least going all FO at once.

wait, does this program only allow for you to change every entry to friends-only? i have some private entries on livejournal already that i would like to keep private. would the program change those to friends-only as well?

Based on mine, it keeps custom filtering.

HideJournal changes every public entry to friends-only - it leaves custom filtered and private stuff alone.

HideJournal eats entries. Don't use it.

Worked fine for me.

Thanks for the tip.

Hidejournal no longer eats entries - if you can provide a test case that it exhibits surprising behaviour on, I'd be extremely interested.

It used to quite spectacularly. I warn people away from it now -- better safe than sorry when it comes down to the sweat and tears people have poured into their journals.

Given that I have an email from you telling me that it's safe, I think that's disinformation on the highest scale. :)

As I said, if you can provide a test case that fails, I'd be extremely interested. Otherwise, it'd be nice not to get castigated for bugs that were fixed 3 years ago.

It may be safe now, but I still don't particularly trust it. I know I looked through the code a while back, yeah, and it seemed okay. I guess my memory of the people screaming about eaten entries overshadows that. :P

Does it still eat tags?

Heh, I don't know. I've had some reports that it eats tags, and some reports that it works perfectly with them (both remarked upon in hidejournal. I haven't done the amount of testing that I'd need to do to feel comfortable saying that it doesn't, so I'd have to say — yes, it eats tags (but might not for you).
