postevent doesn't seem to return the right itemid [Jan. 6th, 2003|12:55 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


I'm writing a php class to post events from another system. I can post just fine, but the returned itemid is always "14", which prevents linking back to the new post. Anyone know why this is?

The itemid returned isn't the same as itemid used on the website. postevent will also return a value called "anum". The web-itemid = itemid << 8 + anum. (Or web-itemid = itemid * 256 + anum if you can't shift bits.)

If it really is always "14" no matter what, you've got some other problem.

No, that seems to work just fine. Is that equation documented somewhere that I missed?

It's not in the protocol documentation, but it comes up about once a month in this community.

This is why LJ needs a search engine.

Or at least someone to update the protocol docs with something other than "I don't see why this is useful".
