LiveJournal Shortcode

Description

Links to LiveJournals have a very distinctive look: the icon followed by the journal name. This shortcode follows the same format as LiveJournal’s own markup and provides the same results, which you can easily customize with your own CSS styles.

FAQ

Can I use this shortcode in excerpts, comments, and/or widgets?

YES! Simply add the following four lines to your functions.php:

add_filter( 'widget_text', 'shortcode_unautop');
add_filter( 'widget_text', 'do_shortcode', 11);
add_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'do_shortcode', 11);
add_filter( 'comment_text', 'do_shortcode', 11);
How do I customize the link or icon used?

The included stylesheet style.css and default LiveJournal icons are easily edited and/or replaced.
