dreamwidth has mobile posting \o/

If this test post goes through to livejournal too, I've lost my last excuse not to sit my butt down and finish my move to Dreamwidth. *squirms* I've been putting it off for this long because it means that I have to hunt down all those who have moved (some under a new username too) and I simply don't haaaave the tiiiiiime. *whines* How does everyone feel about a "This is me at dreamwidth" post where anyone can comment with their new dw account? I'm willing to host it both in LJ and DW.

eta: it doesn't post automatically to lj

dreamwidth will not crosspost anything that is not posted directly to it via the web page.

If you use the Semagic client for LiveJournal, you can configure it to post all your entries to both LiveJournal and Dreamwidth simultaneously.

The only thing you have to be aware of is that it will not put the "please comment on this entry at Dreamwidth" link after the entry. It will post the entry to both places as if each is the only entry you made.

Still, it's very handy and saves a lot of time if you cross post a lot.

Here is the step by step tutorial for setting it up. I'm not particularly great with reconfiguring things, but I was able to get this working in no time:

I know it works that way (I'm not sure if you meant to reply to me or to the OP). I worked in Dreamwidth Support for a bit. But if what she is trying to do post via a client to dreamwidth and have it autopost all the way through to LJ it won't work and never will (especially if she wants to consolidate comments). Multi-posting as you say in your comment, is different of course.

(and not being on a PC, semagic isn't a valid option for me anyway).

I didn't mean to offend you...I thought I was helping. I misunderstood her question.

Not offended, just clarifying.
