LJ-Sec 0.1 now released [Jul. 14th, 2006|05:56 pm]

I have decided to create a solution that allows you to mass-change your security settings. This is a dedicated client, and allows for more complicated security changes than simply switching public posts to friends only. It also acts as a journal archive in the process.

I called the program LJ-Sec.

It is open source (C#), of course. It's designed for Windows systems, and requires the .NET framework (1.1).

You can download the program, and optionally the source, here.

Here are some features:
  • Easily switch post group security levels (eg Public to Friends Only)
  • Perform more complicated custom selections
  • LJ-Sec automatically creates a journal archive, because that's the way the interface works. So you can preview your older posts too.
  • Search your archived journal (boolean search capability). You can tag the results as posts you wish to change.
  • Open source (C#).

    This *is* an initial release, and while I haven't had any problems with post eating etc. in tests, I recommend backing up your journal with Livejournal's backup tool before using this program.

    Hopefully you enjoy the program. :)

    Any suggestions for future improvements will be appreciated. I've already noted that bulk find-and-replace might be a good thing to add to this in the future...

    This looks wonderful! I've been looking for something like this for a long time. Though it would be nice to see a few more versions and bug fixes so I could feel a bit more comfortable doing a lot of mass editing though. There seemed to be a few mentions of Unicode issues at points...
