Obligatory Cross-post post

Move along. Nothing's happening here. Just testing the Dreamwidth cross-post feature.

ETA (on this side of the cross-post) Can we cross-post the other way around? Send all LJ entries to Dreamwidth? Does anyone know? And how do you import your LJ into Dreamwidth?

There's an importer! It imports your tags, comments, filters and userpics too -- though you should upgrade your account to paid/seed first if you have more than 6 and want them all to crossover. Some things import very quickly - at least for me; the userpics and tags showed up after a few minutes - but it sounds like entries and comments are taking quite a bit longer, like several hours, possibly a day. I'm not sure if they've done anything to make it go faster now.

This post has more information.

ETA: I don't think there's a function to write new entries on LJ that will crossover to DW, though. But there are programs that let you post to more than one site, I believe.

Also, were you able to edit your post here on LJ? I tried with my crossover test post and LJ wouldn't let me.

Thanks! And, yes - I was able to edit my LJ post. Don't ask me how :) Except that I notice that you had set comments to openid, whereas I didn't - maybe that makes a difference??

What is your error?

My first cross-over post attempt I couldn't edit for reasons that turned out to have nothing to do with the fact that it was a crossover post (or rather nothing directly to do with it) - I hit into unicode issues because I had stuck cute characters in my subject header.

LJ says, "Client error: Invalid text encoding: Cannot display this post. Please see http://www.livejournal.com/support/encodings.bml for more information."

I'm not sure what the invalid text is, though.

ETA: I followed the lj link to Change Settings, changed it to 'Western European' and now the edit function works. Huh.

Ok, yes that was my error (and fix). Maybe dreamwidth encodings by default, and since LJ (until you set that) doesn't, it throws the error?

Or maybe it was only an issue if you had accented or other characters in your post?
