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 version adds some advanced options that allow you to add / delete / edit the metadata stored in Livejournal entries directly. This also adds a delay that you can set between each Livejournal call, which may be necessary if you are getting "too many requests" type errors.

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

I can't get LJ Sec to work anymore. I used to use it many years ago, but the version I had installed no longer worked. So I installed the new version linked here, and it does not work either.

When I try to log in, it gives me the following error:



Then it says "CONNECTION TO LIVEJOURNAL FAILED! Network timeout or no connection!"

If I click on the Change Journal Host button at the top it gives me this error and closes:



If I click on Configuration Manager, it gives me this error and closes:



Essentially I can make the program do nothing. What am I doing wrong?

I'm not able to simulate this unfortunately...

At any rate, I think there's two possibilities here worth exploring:

  • Something in the registry is amiss. Deleting the key HKEY_LOCAL_SETTINGS\SOFTWARE\LJ-Sec may solve the problem.

  • Something in the configuration file (c:\Program Files\LJ-SecInstall\Configurations) is blank and triggering the error. All configuration files are text (XML) files so you can possibly find the problem value if you want to keep an old configuration. Or you can delete the configuration files and start over. The field named "LJLoginURL" is the one that I would suspect contains an issue.

    Thank you very much. However, I deleted the registry key and it did not change anything. Therefore I reimported the registry to restore it.

    I do not have a file named Configurations in my lj-secinstall directory. I do have a file called app.config which contains the following (I have changed the chevron brackets to square brackets to make sure LJ will display it):

    [?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?]
    [configuration]
    [startup]
    [supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/]
    [supportedRuntime version="v3.0.04506"/]
    [/startup]
    [/configuration]

    Sorry, I was looking at older version notes for some reason.

    The configurations folder should now be located in your application data directory. For XP, that will be:

    C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\LJ-Sec\Configurations

    For Windows 7, that should be:
    C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\LJ-Sec\Configurations

    Also, this means I also specified the wrong registry key, newer versions use:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\LJ-Sec

    Please retry what I said above using the corrected paths.

    That is the registry key I deleted, which didn't change anything.

    I did find a default.ljc file in the Configurations directory. It contained this line:

    [LJLoginURL xsi:null="1"/]

    I renamed the file so that lj-sec couldn't identify it and restarted lj-sec without it. Although it had to re-download my entire journal it now works.

    Thank you very much for your help.
