LJ-Sec is a bulk journal entry management tool. It allows you to bulk change post security, delete posts, find and replace items, repost journal entries to other LJ-compatible servers, and other assorted odds and ends.

This update fixes a couple of issues with using this tool on systems other than Livejournal (the interface dropdown did not show the correct setting if it was anything other than the listed items, and bugs with the default journal filename were fixed).

Find the download for LJ-Sec at http://www.mp3vcr.com/ljsec/.

That's the error zenzendazoto has been getting. I have to write something that allows you to strip out properties. Somehow Dreamwidth's sending properties down with its entries that it doesn't like to receive back.

(As far as the other error goes, I'll make it more user friendly and informative. I suspect something odd from the API is going on.)

Thanks for designing this tool, it worked like a treat for me with LJ.

On DW I get a similar error though. Client Error: Unknown metadata: commentalter and below Hint: You may need to convert older posts to unicode. ...

Not that I think it's that because DW should only allow unicode (?) but I can't find out how to convert any of my entries either. Any idea?

It's not a Unicode error, that error normally shows up for that reason. Once I add an advanced feature to directly alter property strings and publish the code (hopefully early-middle next week), I'll reply with some instructions that hopefully should fix this problem.

OK, the new version is out at http://mp3vcr.com/ljsec/.

To fix this problem, obtain version 0.90.
Check all journal entries.

In the top menu, select "Journal / Advanced / Add delete edit property string items of checked items".
For the text box entitled "property to add / edit / delete", copy the following string:

prop_picture_mapid|prop_commentalter

These are the two properties that are reported as unknown in Dreamwidth, prop_picture_mapid and prop_commentalter, separated by a pipe.

Select "delete property".

LJ-Sec will now delete these properties (that Dreamwidth doesn't recognize) from the entry's metadata. After this, you should be able to alter security etc.

Please let me know if you have any problems with this or need a better explanation. Thanks!

Thank you! That fixed at least 9s% of the problems. The rest still threw an error but they were few enough that I could edit them by hand.
