The new style scrapbook.  
I posted a couple of days ago about the new style Scrapbook that Livejournal is introducing.

Well mine is migrated over the new style now.

So a few things I can tell you about the new style.

Everything is in the album that it was previously in. (Although if I'd uploaded the picture to more than one album it only appears now in the first one it imported to.)

No pictures have been lost in the import.

Tags aren't carried over and there's no way of tagging at present.

Public, friends only and private viewing settings for images are still functioning.

Uploading multiple pictures from your computer is much easier.

Files now have a proper file extention at the end of them like .jpg or .png

All the places I've posted the picures still have working, viewable images.

If you want to see that the new style looks like it's here http://the-silver-sun.livejournal.com/pics/catalog/
http://the-silver-sun.livejournal.com/pics/catalog/

There's only no preview pictures on the front of the albums because I've not set them yet.


All in all not too bad. I'll have to move some of the images from one album to another (but that's mainly because I'd uploaded them to the wrong one in the first place and should have moved them ages ago.). I would have liked them to keep tags, but maybe if enough people ask for them they'll put them back.

Stop LJ reposting option to Facebook/Twitter  
Copied from a post by [livejournal.com profile] angstosaur



This was originally posted by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] emiliglia over on [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones.


"As many of you are probably aware, LJ released the option to link your posts/comments to Facebook and/or Twitter, which was probably one of the dumbest things they've ever done since anyone with Twitter seems to already have their LJ friends on it, and then Facebook and LJ are the lines that never, ever cross. Because I, for one, don't need my cousin's 12 year olds to find the mansex I write.

The following line of code, though, doesn't just hide the repost boxes to you like the Greasemonkey code for Firefox going around does. It completely removes the option for everyone viewing your journal or community. I've done it for this comm as well as my personal journal.

1. Go to Journal > Journal Style

2. Go to Customize your theme

3. Go to Custom CSS

4. Copy and paste this-

.b-repost-item {display:none}

into the Custom stylesheet

5. Save changes

Now not only can you not crosspost comments, but anyone viewing your account can't either. This doesn't get rid of the reposting option when you're making a new entry, but at least that one's easy to avoid."

It is as easy as that! When I did it to mine, the check boxes could no longer be ticked. I assume thats how it's meant to work!

I've just done this and it does work.
