Response to "postevent" [Sep. 10th, 2006|07:53 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions
Hi all!

My client receives response to "postevent" flat-request:

anum = 203
itemid = 1
url = http://***.livejournal.com/459.html
success = OK

I wonder to know what does "anum" parameter stand for. And does "itemid" really useless, as said in documentation.

Thanks in advance :)

And if I own an account how could I calculate itemid having link to some post?

For the record, I had the equation wrong, it is (256 * itemid + anum) = webid.

If you know bit shifting, then (256 * itemid) is the same as (itemid << 8).

If you have the webid, you can just shift it eight bits to the right to get the itemid. In other words, itemid = (webid >> 8). You don't need the anum at all to convert in this direction.
