Mirroring blogs from Drupal to LiveJournal

Well, that was easy :-) Much, much easier than the same thing from SlashCode, which was the expected-but-pleasing-anyway outcome.
Everything that I post into my On:Blog ends up on LJ too.

The code is below, in case anyone else finds it useful.
You'll need the LJ::Simple perl module in addition to the standard LWP module.


use LWP;
use LJ::Simple;

my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;

$url= "http://www.your.site/node/feed";

What's happened to On: ?

Drupal :-)

The system we used to use for writing On: was called SlashCode and it was badly maintained, over the top and complicated to use.
Drupal is much simpler (for us and you).

I have brought across all the old user accounts, stories and journals (which is what SlashCode called what everyone else called blogs) - however it will take some time for things like URL links and categories in the imported items to be sorted as they have to be done fairly much by hand :-/
