LJ Styles

I'm so vexed. My LJ style, based on Flexible Square, broke; all replies to posts don't have the correct colour background, and and no longer indented. I can't remember what I did when I set the style up years ago, so I don't even know where to start. I'm not sure I feel like spending hours trawling through CSS code. In the meantime, I've reverted to the previous style I used, which OK, but missing many customisations.

Is LJ back up again? It seems every time I want to make a post, it's down. Damn hackers.

stolen from [info]pombagira who pulled it from someone else who pulled it from yet another person :) Yes, this is signal boosting.

Passing this along from my flist.

Thanks to [info]midniterose, here is how to stop the crossposting of comments/entries from LJ to sites like Facebook:

There is a way to disable everything. Here is what you have to do:

1. Go to your "Journal" menu, and select "Journal Style"
2. To the right, you'll see what theme you're using, with a link stating "Customize Your Theme". Click that link.
3. Scroll down a little ways, and you'll see that on the left side of your screen, you have multiple options to modify your theme. Click on the "Custom CSS" link, and it should load the options for doing Custom CSS.
4. From here, all you have to do is go to the "Custom Stylesheet", and put in that line.

.b-repost-item {display:none}

once you have it pasted in there, save changes.

Feel free to PASS THIS ON!!

ETA: This prevents the "repost to FB/Twitter" ticky boxes from being displayed when someone comments on one of your posts. It seems to work, UNLESS the person is viewing your page in their own journal style, in which case it might not work.

ETA2: Inserting the code below in your custom CSS box reportedly works for more kinds of journal styles, including custom ones (this courtesy of xnguard):

.b-repost-item, FORM#qrform > TABLE[style="border: 1px solid black;"]:last-child TD[style="vertical-align: top; text-align: right;"]:first-child { display: none !important; }

Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] eve_prime, the interests collage meme. Wow, I have a lot of interests!

This journal is semi-locked. Any entries of a personal nature or that are work-related are locked, and viewable only by LJ friends or specific filters.

If anyone's interested in seeing my Twitter posts here on LJ, please let me know, and I'll add you to the appropriate groups. Obviously, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, it'd be kind of redundant.

I have a few arbitrary posts, but also links to interesting articles and sites.

The new LJ Statistics and My Guests pages are awfully interesting. They've just been released in the newest LJ code release.

Back in the days of bulletin boards, dial-up modems, SLIP/PPP, Winsock, and those things, just about anyone you chatted to online had some IT connection or involvement, and I think it became a natural thing to assume that people who were interested in IT were interested in online communications.

As connecting to the Internet became more prevalent and easier, I started noticing that the people who communicated a lot were the same people who communicated a lot in the real world: the social people. They're they ones who simply took a new medium of communication into their stride. By contrast, I'd have to say that the vast majority of those people I know (socially) who are in IT tend to be among the worst communicators around; they tend not to answer emails, don't get involved in blogging/Twitter/LJ, don't use messaging clients socially, and don't participate in web forums for non-technical reasons. All very interesting, but sad, in some ways.

What do you think?

Friends cut

OK, as I said I would last week, I've done a bit of a friends cut. If you do read my journal, or don't want to be cut, for whatever reason, please reply and let me know! I've not done it because I don't like whomever I've cut, I've done it either because I think the journal is abandoned, or because I don't think the friend actually reads my journal any more.

On that note, if anyone does want to be defriended, for whatever reason, please say so, with no feelings of guilt or rancour on either side. I understand that people's preferences on LJ do change.

I'm thinking of doing a bit of a Friends cut, just to basically clean up those friends that are no longer on LJ, don't read LJ, or don't read or comment on my journal.

If you do read my journal, but very rarely comment, please reply here so I don't cut you. I don't want to cut anyone who actually does read.

(BTW, if I comment on your journal, you can assume I won't be cutting you). :)
