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.

lj-sec in 2016

So, I had a few journals I wanted to "lock down" to completely private but not delete. The only mass security change program I could find was LJ-Sec. So, despite the fact it has not been updated in, what, 4 years? I gave it a shot.

I'm running a Windows 7 machine with the latest browsers. I had no problems installing lj-sec.

Livejournal: Logged in, set the "set livejournal delay between each call" to "50", and did all the mass changes pretty much without missing a beat.

Dreamwidth: lots of missed beats. Again, delay set to 50. Biggest problem: lj-sec does not recognize custom groups from dreamwidth do you are stuck clicking the ticky boxes for each post set to custom, which was a pain if have more than, say, five of those (I had hundreds). Also, kept getting metadata errors. Read up on it here from what others were experiencing, and that solved it, BUT I had to use the following string in the "add/delete/edit property strings" option:

That seemed to clear up most of the issues. Still had to manually change about 10 posts but out of thousands, that's not much of a hassle.

Honestly I don't expect to need to use this again for any reason, but I'm glad lj-sec was available.
