LiveJournal Shortcode

Quickly create text links to LiveJournals in the same format as LJ with this shortcode.

  1. Upload shortcode-lj to your /wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the "Plugins" menu in your WordPress admin.

To use the shortcode, anywhere you want a LJ link:

[lj user="frank"]

or

[lj user="frank" title="Frank the Goat"]

or

[lj user="lj-maintenance" title="LiveJournal Maintenance" icon="community"]

The user parameter is required. It is the actual name of the journal and can be found from the URL when you visit that journal's page. For example, Frank the Goat's journal is at http://frank.livejournal.com and his username is "frank". If you do not specify the user parameter, the shortcode will result in a red error message to let you know to fix it.

The title parameter is optional and controls the formatting of the visible link text on your page. By default, the user parameter will be used for the link text unless the title parameter is specified. For example, if you want the text to read "Frank the Goat's Totally Awesome LiveJournal" instead of just "Frank", put that in the title parameter.

The icon parameter is optional and indicates what kind of LiveJournal this journal is. Valid options are user, community, and news. Defaults to user.
