LiveJournal Crossposter

Automatically crossposts your WP entries to your LiveJournal or LJ-based clone.


  • Fixed notices


  • Fixed yet another bug in the per-post comments settings. (#149)
  • Fixed the relative link function to correctly ignore https URLs. (#148)


  • Turned off the debug mode that was accidentally left on in 2.3. My apologies!


  • Added support for custom friends groups. (#37)
  • Fixed a problem where entries that were edited after being crossposted had the backdate option set, making them disappear from friends lists. This option is now set only when crossposting all entries in bulk. (#146)
  • Fixed another bug in the per-post comments settings. (#149)


  • Fixed the userpic and comment settings on individual posts. (#144)
  • Added some helpers to work around servers that do not support PHP's multibyte string functions.


  • Fixed the new relative link function so it leaves full URLs alone. (#141)
  • Now using WP's HTTP API rather than curl_*(), which means the userpic retrieval functions should work on more servers.


  • New option: default LJ privacy levels for private WP posts. (#73)
  • Added support for custom fields in the header/footer. See the wiki for documentation. (#113)
  • Now auto-generates excerpts from the content, if crossposting excerpts and the post doesn't have an excerpt specified (#139)
  • Added a filter, ljxp_pre_process_excerpt, applied to the excerpt before it's crossposted. Developers should use this in addition to ljxp_pre_process_post to support both excerpt and full-text options.
  • Relative links are now converted to full URLs before the content is crossposted (#134)
  • The LJ URL of the post is now stored in a custom field, so you can easily add the link to your WP entry. (#51)
  • Galleries are now crossposted with inline styles, so their grid layout is maintained (#117)
  • When posting to a community, deleted WP entries are now deleted from the community correctly.
  • New Help screen on the options page.
  • Updated POT for translators.


  • Fixed category handling and a warning about arrays on line 89 that could also lead to "headers already sent" message on some servers.
  • Translations: generated new POT from wordpress.org; updated old .po/.mo files to match the new text domain.


  • Fix for <!--more--> tags containing text (#76)
  • Added a filter, ljxp_pre_process_post, applied to the post content before it's crossposted (#120)
  • Added option to not crosspost by default (#67)
  • Added option to crosspost the excerpt instead of the full text (#111)
  • Added [author] tag for header/footer (#34)
  • Settings API! Much better security.
  • General settings cleanup. Now using two settings instead of thirteen, and removing settings on plugin uninstall.
  • More improvements to the error handling.


  • send error back to the post edit screen when LJ is down (transport/socket errors) rather than using wp_die(), which stops all other plugins from working
  • support userpics (#74)
  • support cut text
  • switch to new meta box format so you can collapse the LJ box or move it around the post edit screen
  • fix a problem with gallery image IDs that would cause the wrong images to be shown when the [gallery] shortcode was crossposted
  • options page cleanup
  • get rid of has_cap deprecated argument notice
  • less obnoxious default styling for the crosspost header/footer
  • A-Bishop's LiveJournal Comments is now bundled with this plugin, eliminating the need for extra setup. This version has been edited to use a more reliable configuration, and this copy will be updated alongside LJ-XP.
