A little while ago, someone fulfilled my wish for a Movable Type plugin to send my entries to Livejournal. Chip Marshall wrote the most useful plugin of this genre on his first pass, and it’s only gotten better. Lately, I’ve been rearranging my templates so that I can provide meta-data for entries about topics such as books, or format my quick link type entries different. I realized that the version of ljcrosspost I was using was not holding up well to the strain. I thought wistfully of how nice it would be to be able to control the output to lj, but put it out of my mind as I continued to break my templates left and right, as well as the myriad of other things in life that have kept me busy. Today, I decided to track down the entry for the plugin to write him a comment or e-mail and suggest the improvements. Lo and behold, Chip is miles ahead of me, as the latest version of ljcrosspost does all that and more. I happily downloaded the update and then proceeded to break my Livejournal left and right as I messed with the new features. I think I’ve gotten it back to normal now, but if you notice anything odd, let me know.
