    I have released Live Press 1.2.0 on my dev blog. You can go to the Live Press section of my dev blog by going to http://jason.goldsmith.us/dev/projects/wordpress-plugins/live-press/
    Live Press is the next generation of the Live Journal Plugin Pack. I have tried to address most of the requests for features with this release. A list of the major improvements can be found in the entry for this release.
    If you have questions or problems, you can post a comment in my dev blog. I hope you enjoy it.

    It seems that some people are having problems with Live Press initial setup. Make sure that you read the intro.txt in the LivePress folder and that you configure your account in lpsynch.config.php in the LivePress folder.

    I keep hearing about 'Live Journal Plugin' Pack and now LivePress, but what exactly does this do? (I clicked on your link and it didn't really explain anything)

    Live Press (and the Live Journal Plugin Pack before it) is a Live Journal compatibility and synchronization plugin. It is designed to let WordPress users continue to use their Live Journal accounts with minimal hassle. It adds support for moods, music, synching posts between WordPress and Live Journal accounts and implements the lj-user and lj-cut tags in WordPress.

    It seems that the [lj-cut text="some text"] feature it's not working.

    Really? It is working on my blog, are you having a problem on your blog or on Live Journal? Can you give me a little additional information? The second post on my blog is using the text ="" feature so you can go look there to see it working. I would like to be able to fix whatever problem you are having, since someone else might have it too.

    Yeah, there may be a bug or two here and there. I will try to clean up the issues you mentioned here. The problem with the zip file is a problem with the way WinZip makes the file. So, the LivePress.php should be in the plugins folder and the LivePress subfolder should be in plugins as well.
    There shouldn't even be a configure option in the latest release of the LivePress plugin. I don't think there will be a configuration GUI until version 1.3.0 which will be the release for WordPress 1.3. I might add it sooner, but there are several features that the plugin still needs, so it will depend on when 1.3 is released.
    The intro.txt file should be up to date as well, but I will take a look. I appreciate the feedback. It would be immensely helpful if feedback is left on my dev blog so I can keep it all together, but you know, I am not going to complain if you leave it here, I just want to get it :)

    The [lj-cut text="some text"] feature doesn't seem to work for me either.
    Also, I seem to be missing the option to synch my entries to LJ like in the previous version of LJ Plugins (where there is a checkbox, and drop down menus for userpic and security level).
    Lastly, when you place the mood and music before the entries, is there an option to change the order and place mood BEFORE music? In the default, the order goes: entries, mood, music. But when you choose to put them before the entries, the order is: music, mood, entries. Is it possible to switch mood and music?

    I will look into the mood music issue.....I know why it is happening...so that's at least some help.....
    Did you configure the lpsynch.config.php file? If you don't configure that for your account, then synching is disabled, since there is no where to synch to.
    I am not sure why people are having problem with the lj cut tag...can you point me to a test post?

    I don't know how, but the zip file contained a very old version of the tag parser.
    The zip file has been updated and you can get it from the same place as before. Try that to see if the lj cut tags are now working.

    has anyone gotten this to work for them? I get all kinds of errors. Yes, I did edit that one file.

    I downloaded the new file but the [lj-cut text="some text"] tag still doesn't work. You can see it on my test blog here.
    For the lpsynch.config.php file:

    $journals['LJusername']['password'] = 'LJpassword';
    $journals['LJusername']['allowlist'] = 'WordPressUser';

    I changed LJusername with my LJ username, LJpassword with my password, and WordPressUser with my WordPress username. Did I do anything wrong? Because the synch checkbox (along with the other options) are still missing.

    I'm having a big problem with this plugin. While I can activate it and have it post to my LJ, when I try to log in again I receive the following error(s):
    (Directories shortened for brevity)
    'Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at ../wordpress/wp-content/plugins/LivePress/lpsynch.config.php:47) in ../wordpress/wp-login.php on line 257'
    I receive this error 5 times for lines 257 through 261 in wp-login.php.

    Anonymous - I noticed that you have your password set as 'LJpassword', since I can't (and don't want) to see the actual password there, this is a guess. Are you putting the hashed password there or is it just the password that you type when you log in to Live Journal? If it is just the password you type when logging into LiveJournal, you need to do one of two things, either:
    $journals['LJusername']['password'] = md5('LJpassword');
    Or use the link in the config file to use the online hasher and put that in:
    $journals['LJusername']['password'] = 'hashedLJpassword';
    Let me know if that works for you.

    BuzzNJ - I would guess that you maybe have a line that wrapped in the comments and that has a hard line break with no comment markers in front of it.
    You could send me a copy of your file that I can look at or post a link to your blog so I can poke around a little.

    Thanks Unteins, the funky web based test editor my hosting has (which I'm guessing may be part of cPanel) was doing that to one of the lines of code I had commented out. I've cleared up the problem.

    Buzz NJ - Glad to hear it....I looked at the code and that was the only thing that seemed likely based on where the error was occuring, right in the middle of a comment block.

    This is a pretty awesome idea... think we will ever see something like this for Xanga?

    If there is a way to post to Xanga remotely it is possible. I am currently using the Live Journal XMLRPC interface to do the work.
    If Xanga has an XMLRPC interface that is defined and publically accessible, it should be possible to do it.

    for those that can't get the lj-cut tag to work, my "Cutter" plugin works fine... It's on the WP-Wiki Plugins page...

    It's not that the lj-cut tag isn't working, it's that the text="some text" isn't working for most of us. I see on unteins WP blog he's got it working, but my WP still just spits out the code straight as [lj-cut text="some text" (without the closing bracket). lj-cut by itself works just fine.

    Cutter 0.2 now supports custom link text!
    [CUT="custom link text"]cut this[/CUT]

    Okay, maybe this is my problem. I downloaded LivePress 1.2 and in the zip file there's a LivePress directory as well as 2 files in the root, class-IXR.php and LivePress.php. I put the files in the following places:
    LivePress.php into /wp-content/plugins
    The contents of the LivePress directory into /wp-content/plugins/LivePress
    class-IXR.php into /wp-includes
    Is this correct? I'm still not having any success with the text attribute for lj-cut (although lj-cut by itself works fine), and I'm also having the problem with LivePress populating the postmeta table with custom fields for post_id 0, which is causing problems when writing new posts.

    Neil -> Sorry, I have not been to the forums lately....life is getting busy for me....
    I will try to dig into the problem with Drafts....I never noticed this before....but I have some ideas what might be going on.....
    For anyone with LJ Cut tag problems, definitely redownload the plugin as there seemed to be a much older version floating about that had issues. The Cutter plugin won't work for you on Live Journal, so you'll lose your cut tags.

    I got the plugin pack from the wiki. I'm using version 1.2.3 i think. I can get the posts to show up on my LiveJournal. I'm pretty sure it's working right, because on the main page it gathers my information correctly. I'm pretty sure I put in my password correctly and everything.
    $journals['qbproger']['password'] = 'LJPW';
    for LJPW i put my password.
    The synch checkbox is checked. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong :(
    Unteins, my Email is joe@quibb.org I'm not sure if i'll remember to check here so if you could email me any help.

    How do you backdate from livepress?

    Wow, it works great!
    One question, though.
    It is possible to show my WordPress categories in Livejournal? Like on each Livejournal entry, it'll have "Filed under General," and have it link to my WordPress archives. Is that possible?

    I have fixed the issuse with the text="sometext" issue.

    download the "cutter plugin"

    find all examples of [cut] and replace them with [lj-cut]
    find all examples of [/cut] and replace them with [/lj-cut]
    find all examples of [cut=\".+\"\] replace it with [lj-cut text=\".+\"\]
    find all examples of [cut="','"] and replace with [lj-cut text="','"]

    finally, open lpsynch.php and add in this code.

    // Fix lj-tags hack
    $the_event = preg_replace("/([[{<~])(lj-cut)([]}>~])/i", "<2>" , $the_event);
    $the_event = preg_replace("/([[{<~])(lj-cut text="(.+)")([]}>~])/i", "<2>" , $the_event);
    $the_event = preg_replace("/([[{<~])(/?lj-cut)([]}>~])/i", "<2>" , $the_event);
    $the_event = convert_chars($the_event, "html");

    Now my cuts behave like a proper lj-cut would on both lj and wordpress.
