LJ assistance requested

Unless I'm missing something, LJ's "update journal" page offers no way to do cuts or user tags, right? It's supposed to be a last resort method for folks who don't want to download a client, right?

You see, at work I am behind a firewall, and so far none of the clients I've tried seem to work through it. Can anyone recommend one that might work? Or offer configuration advice that might make a difference? No idea what protocol is involved in sending the updates from the client to my journal, so I am lost.

I'm thinking I should just go ahead and buy a paid account. Do paid accounts have more convenient was to do cuts and tags? I've been out of the LJ loop so long, I hardly know how to use it anymore. Help!

yeah -- you type the codes in, like this -- replace brackets with < >

[lj-cut] or [lj-cut text="More on this story"]

[lj user="peregrin8"]

[lj comm="feminist"]

Cool. I figured there was prolly some way to just hand code that (like I do with every single bit of HTML anyway :) Much obliged.

I've never dl'd a client. Just [lj-cut text="blahblahblah"] (using < and > instead of [ and ].)

User tags are [lj user="fenriss"], again with the < and >.

HTH,

Paid accounts don't have extra ways to do lj cuts and tags (that's just html) but there are a fair number of reasons it's worth it to get a paid account:

(not mentioned is the faster server access, which just started)


Even when I wasn't using most of the features (I still don't), I paid for LJ - I use it enough it only seems fair.

Yeah, OK. It does seem fair. It's more a matter of not getting around to doing it than not wanting to pay for it in my caase.

Hi. Just curious if I know you in RL?
