LJ-Sec updated to v0.5 [May. 31st, 2007|05:14 pm]

LJ-Sec, a Windows-based program that allows you to change post security, delete posts, find and replace items, and more, has been updated today to version 0.5.

This adds a new feature -- the ability to repost journal entries from one account to another, whether you are on Livejournal or elsewhere. You can select as many entries as you like to transfer -- from one to all. Select only entries with certain keywords using find; select only certain security levels; etc.

The transfer has some limitations. The biggest one is that comments will not transfer. That significantly limits the usefulness of this feature, but it seems that some would still find a post-only transfer to be useful. There's a good chance custom security groups won't transfer either (though you can try). If transferring cross-server, features not supported on the receiving server obviously won't transfer, either. The rest should transfer pretty nicely.

As usual, LJ-Sec requires the .NET framework 1.1 and IE 5.0; all posts also must be in Unicode in order for LJ-Sec to sync right (you can convert older posts here). The Mono compatible fork, for experimenting on other platforms, has also been updated.

Is it 'transfer' as in 'copy' or 'move and delete source'?

It copies. You can copy and then delete if you want to, of course.

The Mono version *may* run on the Macintosh (with the Mono framework for Mac installed), but without a Macintosh to test it on, I can't tell for sure.

I have never heard of Mono (other than as a viral disease) and so I doubt that it is installed on my macs...

It isn't I'm sure.

The Mono project allows you, in theory, to run .NET applications on OS X and other Unix machines. I don't have a compiled version for the Macintosh, though, so someone would have to take the Mono source and do that. No takers so far...

Ah. Cool idea. I used to be a programmer for windoze before I had to retire on medical grounds (multiple sclerosis) in 2000. I am no longer up to coding/compiling, but I am willing to act as a pedantic tester from HECK if you need one... ;-p

On this page there is a link to this binary (Mono 1.2.4_4 Framework - Universal (Stable)) which I may try out for you.

:D;; Is there any way to change the security of community posts? As in, starting a community "fresh" by making all of the previous posts private? I really don't want to have to do that manually. xD

Re: -=is late=-

Unfortunately this is not possible at this time. I don't think this is even supported at the Livejournal API level, elsewise I would've implemented it a while back.
