Greeting from the great nation of testing to see if this shit works.

I realize a) I have no control over icons at lj when posting from dreamwidth and b) I have no icons uploaded at dw and oh god, I should probably buy icon space, it's how I express myself.

Advice on update platforms that crosspost would be awesome, I know a few of you have mentioned using them in the past but I of course cannot remember them. If they work with Safari that would be extra-awesome because I use Safari at work and home rather than Firefox because reasons.

I have no helpful advice, but your entry does show up on my LJ reading list so yay, cross-posting success.

I think the best crossposter is DW itself, on the update page. I have no complaints about it. I especially like the beta version, though because it is in beta, it doesn't save your drafts.

Hi! Swinging by from the Latest page, and figured I had useful knowledge: you can import your icons from LJ and the keywords you have over there will come over here, letting you control what icons display across both journals.

1. I have no idea how many icons you have, though I assume based on what you've said that you're probably maxed out for icons on LJ :) Dreamwidth's icon limits.
2. I have heard rumors that with the new icon stuff over at LJ, if you have multiple keywords attached to a given icon, it is impossible to select it properly (for a comment - the icon keywords get smashed into one set) - don't know if this is tied up only with the comment icon selector, or if there are deeper issues over there that might make icon selection from a DW crosspost to LJ newly difficult. I hope the former is true.

Also, what [personal profile] musesfool said about the Dreamwidth crossposter. Once you get it set up, it's pretty much seamless. The only time it's failed on me was when LJ was having yet another DDOS, so nobody could post anything anyway, and Dreamwidth tries up to five times to crosspost before notifying you in your inbox if it failed.

You may or may not be interested in the new update page as well - DW's been working on a new version of it for awhile, and it's in beta testing at the moment. Pros: customizability! rearranging things till they make sense for you! Cons: currently does not save drafts.
