LJ-Sec updated to v0.5

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.

importing entries.

Hey, I was just wondering if there is any client available to import all your entries into another lj?
I have read in the FAQ that LJ doesn't support this, but maybe there is a client that can help?

Many thanks, Siantelle

little problem

I've got little problem with lj flat. I tried to post message in community with international characters (Russian) by my own web-client. Current charset was UTF-8, but i recieved error message "Client error: Protocol version mismatch: Posting in a community with international or special characters require a Unicode-capable LiveJournal client. Download one at". By the way, when I posted the same message to my lj it look well=)

Is there an LJ Client that will upload a post at a set time?

Specifically I'd like to be able to "pre-record" posts and have them auto-update daily.

Thanks :)

New community for MarsEdit users...

I am the developer of MarsEdit, a weblog editing app for Mac OS X. It has support for LiveJournal through the "Blogger" interface, but I'm going to work on improving LJ support by using the new Atom publishing inerface.

If you're using MarsEdit with LiveJournal, please check out the new community:

Feel free to ask any questions you have about MarsEdit's LiveJournal support.

Also, if anybody reads this who is responsible for the "Clients" page, I would love to see MarsEdit listed in the Mac section. Thanks!

Writing a PHP client for posting to Livejournal

I have a system which crossposts to other systems and I am having trouble making a correct post to LiveJournal (btw: the system is for Second Life at )

I am able to list users blogs and get the required data to make posts on their behalf and also I am able to make 'a post' -

but the post itself show up as something like : HASH(0xbeb4544)


Which makes me think that my content struct is malformed - despite not giving an error.

This is what I am trying to post:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                <string>this is a test post title</string>
                  <string>here is the main body of the post. very interesting I think you'll agree</string>

I'm posting to the endpoint

This is beyond the (limited) documentation over at :

as this only shows how to post to the main body of the post. (ie not as a title/description  or  subject/body ) which I have got working.

So, can anyone out there explain how to create a content struct to contain the title and description?

(I'm new to LJ's system and I have to say the documentation is terrible. This is also why I'm having trouble support MT too)

I was even able to write support for the new Google/Blogger Account system, which wasn't fun at all, so I thought this might be easier.

Any help with this would make many happy users ;)

ps: is this searchable? I cant see a search field to look for previous posts on this subject. thx. *rubs eyes*
