I'm aware that I can cross-post entries between DW and other sites using the "post entry" page here. Is there an external client that can do this? Thanks.

With the demise of twittenesis, I'm trying to set up loudtwitter to post to my DW. I have tried setting up the ATOM API posting, as that's what it used when I was on LJ, but either it doesn't work or I have the wrong URL.

So my questions are:

1. Which setup style works with Dreamwidth?

ATOM API posting configuration
XMLRPC posting configuration
Invite LoudTwitter as TypePad Guest Author

2. What URLs do I need to know to link?

Any help is very much appreciated!

Hi. I'm really fed up with LJ, and I've decided to start using my DW as my primary journal.


1. How do I change the alignment of my style modules from left to right?
2. Can I crosspost using Semagic? If not, is there another client I can crosspost with? At the moment I'm stuck with Windows XP, but I'll be moving back to Linux in a few months, when I finish saving up for my new computer.
3. How do I customise the navigation strip colour?

That's it for now. Thanks. I'm sure I'll think of more questions soon.

Here's a question: We all know that there are various methods by which you can post to DW. Twitter, Crossposting, Semagic, Flickr, Importing into Facebook, post by e-mail, post by e-mail, etc.

Also, I'm sure it's not in the works yet, but what about auto music detection, scrobbling?

Is there one central location where one can get tips/tutorials on how to post through other methods than the web interface?

I want to use LJ sec to manage my entries on DW, but when I tried to logged in my DW account setting the configuration as http://www.dreamwidth.org/interface/flat I got an error and the program crashed.

Anyone has any idea how to make this works? Or is my best bet to wait until LJ sec makes a new release taking DW into account? (or I guess, ask on their community?)

I'm pretty sure this is the wrong place to ask, but I'm not sure what the right place is, so I'm asking here and hoping to get pointed in the correct direction.

I would like to find the documentation on dw's xmlrpc interface, like lj has here: http://www.livejournal.com/doc/server/ljp.csp.xml-rpc.protocol.html so as to alter a script I use for posting to lj to work on dw. Specifically, there ought to be an option, (or more specifically, a key-pair) to x-post, so as to make x-posting from a client possible.

Hi, I hope its ok to ask this here, but I am using Semagic to post to DW and posting is working, and crossposting works fine too. But the "edit friends" section doesn't appear to be working. I know from the wiki that we can't retrieve custom groups through it, but should we be able to retrieve just a list of subscribers? Or is DW's code too different and the friend management through semagic is something just not able to be done? If I click "update from server" it appears to connect, send and recieve data (I do not get an error message at all and I can see the numbers showing it is transmiting data in the client dialogue box) but I'm not getting any results.

Its not a problem if it doesn't work at all. I just want to make sure I'm not just doing something wrong...

My apologies if this is not the best place to post. Redirect me if there is a better community?

I have been working with [livejournal.com profile] fub, testing his linux client called Benzaiten for LJ. On a whim, I tried it with Dreamwidth and it worked as a basic client.

I asked [livejournal.com profile] fub to make some changes so he could support Dreamwidth as well as LJ, and his reply was:
I don't have a dreamwidth account, so I don't know what you are talking about in your other feature requests. :P
My questions are:

1) Is there already a full-fledged linux client? If so, could someone point me to it?

2) If not, is there enough support here that I should continue to nudge [livejournal.com profile] fub to work on Benzaiten? What kinds of features would be nice? What should be left off?

ETA: I have reposted this over on linux4all. Thanks everyone!

I have seen a lot of questions not just here, but all over, about the cross-posting feature. Since a lot of questions generally means that the answer isn't clear enough or prominent enough, here goes!

The cross-post settings that one sets on the Other Sites page only applies to updates made through the update page, not through any other client (Semagic, LoudTwitter, post by e-mail, through Google Documents, or anything else that is not the update page).

When posting from another client besides the update page, you will have to do one of the following:
  • Use a cross-posting feature from that client.
  • Cross-post manually.
  • Post, then edit the post from the Dreamwidth website (rather than through a client) and save the entry with cross-posting turned on. (This will cross-post it if it was not automatically cross-posted before.)
  • Do without cross-posting.

As more clients are written to include Dreamwidth, cross-posting between sites is likely to become an option in these clients. However, if your client does not tell you that it is cross-posting, or if you did not set up cross-posting in your client, at this time your client is most likely not doing that.

I checked up on compatible clients for dreamwidth here and noted that there are a few that will work for Macs. I have typically used xJournal for livejournal updates and for archiving all my entries on my hard drive.

I would like to use a client that will allow for 'downloading history' like xJournal does and that would make crossposting to livejournal easy, as well. I wondered if any of you has tried iJournal, MarsEdit, Phoenix, or xJournal with dreamwidth and, if so, which did you like best? Were you able to archive your entries on your computer? Crosspost?
