I’ve tried all the different plugins that claim to work with WordPress for cross-posting to LiveJournal, but recently I’ve gotten errors from everything. I’ve asked for help from the authors in their forums and nothing seemed to be happening. And then I saw this: Banned Because of Live+Press’ Bad Behavior. That’s from the current maintainer of Live+Press, the plugin I’ve had the best luck with overall.
I have no idea how to go about contacting LiveJournal to find out if our IP is banned or not. I suppose it would be our web server’s IP, rather than our connection IP, anyway. I know that our connection IP isn’t banned, because I can post manually. I just can’t seem to post automatically. We’ll see if the plugin can post or not, or if I still get an error message.
ETA: Well, I didn’t get an error message, but the post didn’t show up on LJ either. So I don’t know if I’m banned or not. There’s a custom field showing up now, though, and that’s where the error went. Same old error: -32301 : transport error — HTTP status code was not 200 I guess I’ll disable the plugin again and wait a while longer. My other option is to rebuild this blog completely from scratch and try one of the other plugins that seem to be working for other people.
