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 adds the ability to batch append text to either the beginning, or the end of your journal. Select the articles you want to append text to, and type the phrase you want to append. Useful for adding signatures or LJ tags.

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

What phrase did you use to find / replace?

I'm using Regex to do the find and replace but currently I'm not making the search string "safe for regex". Therefore certain punctuation characters ([], $, .) may trip up the find replace unless you add a backslash before them.

If this is the case, what I can do is add these backslashes automatically by default, and then add a switch that will allow people to enter in Regex in case a more complicated find / replace is desired.

Not in the way you are looking for (the format of the journal file is XML, but it's custom). LJArchive is the tool I would use for that.

I'm getting the same error as others have about 'SYNCHRONIZATION FAILED! Network timeout or no connection!'

I tried running it in Admin mode and no dice. I have like the others -- Windows 7, 64 bit.

The mystery error. :( I've heard that uninstalling and reinstalling may help with this.

Tried that -- didn't work either :(

Here is the weird part -- it will show my communities but it won't sync my personal journal. Is there a reason for that?

I wonder if something internal to LJ is messing up the API calls here. That's odd.

Does tools like LJArchive work for your journal?

As far as I know, it mostly is compatible with Dreamwidth.

I would like to delete a bunch of old entries in a community I have. I've downloaded the program but I'm not all that savvy. Do you think you could post a simple tutorial? Thank you!

1) Run the program and login to your account
2) Go to the "Selections" menu, select "check all"
3) Go to process, select "Delete selected posts"

I did get that far but only for my personal journal. Can't figure out how to delete my entries in a community that I own/communities I belong to.

You can, but it's a manual process.

You can easily pull up your community. In the login screen, after typing in your name and password, click "get list of subscribed communities". After this, you should be able to select the name of communities you belong to. Select that, and the community's messages should sync up. You should be able to select any post you want, if you have access to delete you should be able to do so.

The big snag here is that LJ-Sec doesn't have a way to select posts by author name right now. So you'd have to manually scroll through the list, or find posts by tags or subject text, in order to find your posts. If you used a consistent tag, it's fairly easy to find and select posts, if you want I can post the steps for that.

(Searching entries by author name would be a good feature to add, actually, I'll look into adding that in the next few days. Shouldn't be too hard to implement.)

Hi I'm trying to delete all entries on my dreamwidth.org account using this (http://moem.dreamwidth.org/270241.html) tutorial. Unfortunately I don't get a .jrs file created when I log in to livejournal and when I just create a .jrs file with the name, it is obviously blank and I can't connect with an appropriate path.

Do you know of any way that I can get lj-sec to connect to my dreamwidth account?

The tutorial is slightly out of date. To comply with Windows 7 security, the journals directory location is now changed. You can now find the journals directory at:

%APPDATA%\LJ-Sec\Journals

%APPDATA% should automatically translate if you type this directory ing Windows Explorer. But if it doesn't, replace %APPDATA% with c:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\ in Windows XP, and c:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\ in Windows 7.

Currently only basic authentication. (I think C# does have support for digest, NTLM, and kerberos... if you need any of these I can check how easy it would be to add them in...)
