Okay, so I'm trying out Dreamwidth as it seems to be the thing to do, right now.

And I love this picture anyway, and feel it could be a motto for the new year. :)

(Though I gotta say, I'm already missing the LJ ability to direct-link to laptop albums...)

I like the picture too. I like it as the new motto.

Great! We can figure out Dreamwidth together.:-) How did you get that footer with the dreamwidth link? It didn't show up on my first crosspost. Maybe I left something unticked.

Aaargh, I'm already panicking about it!

The footer is the default one on the cross posting details page (forget the right term for it), at the bottom of that page. I was totally flummoxed by the instructions but then saw it said, 'if you leave it blank, you will get the default'. Yay for defaults! :)

Um... where is the crossposting details page?

Go to your DW settings page and choose "Other Sites".

I put my LJ details in, checked "always" for the adding of the footer, and then because I didn't rally understand the boxes at the bottom re. what happens when comments are disabled etc etc, I just left it blank so that the default text applies. Voila! ;)

Right! Thanks. I had 'crosspost to LJ' coming up automatically when I posted something to DW, so didn't search any further... If it was something I didn't want to crosspost I just unticked it before I hit 'post'.

Is that an Anarcho-syndicalist Cat? I love anarcho-syndicalist cats! They have a damn fine attitude to both capitalism and cake *vbg*

PS is the image OK for general use, do you know, like if I nick it and post it elsewhere?

I am ashamed to say I nicked it yesterday from someone on FB and now I can't find who. I think an anarcho-syndicalist cat will be happy with theft as a political statement, though, don't you? ;)

That's a point - I hadn't ever thought how to say on LJ that I've posted something to DW as well... Must look...

Hee - great piccy, thank you!

Dreamwidth never seems quite as straightforward and obvious as LJ to me... I've started stumbling around over there too. Ho hum!

Are you using Photobucket for your pics?

I'm so glad I'm not the only one stumbling.
*Holds on to you for balance*
Yes, I've used Photobucket for a number of years now. It's a pain with all the adverts, but it does the job of being a URL location.

Apparently there are concerns about security - have you seen this?


I'm not moving at the moment - I don't post stuff about my real life as a rule. But there is a risk that the personal data Lj asked for in order to register could become vulnerable. In my case this should be a data cul-de-sac. But it must be very worrying for people who have paid accounts or who have blogged personal information to their journals.

Or people who are responsible for comms.

I'm thinking about setting up a duplicate account on DW just to have a backup in case I decide to leave Lj abruptly or when I don't have much spare time to do a transfer.

At the moment though, I'm more worried about being ready for work tomorrow!

Thank you so much for the info. I am miles behind, as usual...
I see how worrying this is, now. :(

That cartoon is awesome!
I've been crossposting to and from Dreamwidth for a while now, so good luck getting to grips with it.

Have snaffled you on DW :) I've been there since 2010 and *whispers* I'm a fan. Good luck!
