What's going on?
I know some of my flist use the LJ Client Semagic to post to LJ - as do I and have done ever since I joined LJ. I use it to post to my journal and communities.

Well I used to!

A few minutes ago I posted the regular weekly ncis_drabble challenge, only to discover it had been posted to my LJ instead (I amend the previous week's saved post so have no need to choose the journal). Upon checking to see whether I had inadvertently rest the 'Post to' type box to my LJ, I discovered that rather than that nice drop down list from which I could select the comm, all that is there now is my LJ.

I had to go to LJ itself to post - which is a real pain and time-consuming and not what I want to do.

Is this happening to anyone else? What has happened?

Any ideas?

I'm having the horrid feeling this is tied in with the various site 'improvements' but can't quite figure out how/why.

*Wanders off to find Semagic comm to see if there's anything there*

My Semagic still have all of my posting accesses...

But for how long? :-/


eta : sorry, forgot that in English, you need to add more letters for the plural form :-)

*Pokes LJ*

Apologies for how long it's taken me to reply to this, but I didn't receive the notification until this morning.

Ah, thank you - that's interesting to know. I wonder if I've inadvertently misclicked something? Or maybe I need to reinstall.

What version of Semagic are you running, BTW?

Thank you for replying.

We love LJ, don't we? :-/

Semagic is 1.7.9.9U


Re-install : the panacea for every Windows problem :-)

We do *g*

Thank you for looking that's the same as I have.

I'll give it a go - but it seems others have the same problem *sighs* I think I'll go to LJ Support. I know it's a client, but even so.

I don't use Semagic, but others on my flist are complaining about problems. I don't know the specifics.

Y'know, back in the day, LJ promoted the use of Semagic for their users. You'd think they'd keep it functional as they make their "improvements". Well, a logically-operated company would... I guess that leaves out LJ.

Apologies for the delay in replying - I didn't receive the notification until today.

Thank you - I'll have a look at your flist. So it seems it isn't just me, which is something but . . .

It was a few days back, so I looked for you. (I knew which filters to search.)

It wasn't much; Admiral Andrea said, So apparently you can't use Semagic to post to a journal other than your own any more?! No one answered her.

Seems like I saw one other complaint, but not on my flist, and I don't remember where.

I went back a week (to the time I knew it last worked) and simply searched the page for Semagic.

I know now why I didn't find anything - it's a locked entry. Thanks anyway.
