LJ & Facebook & Twitter

Oh LJ, even w/o as many people hanging out you still manage to piss folks off.

1. I rarely flock my posts.

2. I don't care if people on LJ know my real name

3. But I don't announce on Facebook that I am HellZiggy!

4. Yes, there's a lot of crossover between the two, but there is also family & coworkers on FB. They don't need to know that I like vampire porn!

5. Do I even need to tell my friends not to cross-post comments they make here?

6. I don't need to tell you. I followed these simple instructions to remove the cross-post option from my LJ's style:

I've seen this on a couple friends pages. Not sure of the original source. I got it from magicmarmot who got it from someone who got it from someone else...
I did this and it worked. Note that it's curly braces around the display:none, and not parentheses.

To get rid of the twitter/facebook repost links in your journal entry comments do the following:

1. Go to your "Journal" menu, and select "Journal Style"
2. To the right, you'll see what theme you're using, with a link stating "Customize Your Theme". Click that link.
3. Scroll down a little ways, and you'll see that on the left side of your screen, you have multiple options to modify your theme. Click on the "Custom CSS" link, and it should load the options for doing Custom CSS.
4. From here, all you have to do is go to the "Custom Stylesheet", and put in that line.

.b-repost-item {display:none}

Once that's in there, you want to save the changes, and you should be done. Leave everything else as it is (unless you want to remove more things!).

Because it's tied to the style sheet, if you've got LJ set to always view pages in your style you will never see the ticky boxes on your friends' pages. If you put this in, but your friend is looking at your page in their style which still allows the tickys, I think they will still see ticky boxes on your post. Not a perfect solution, but at least people who are looking at my page with my style won't have the option.

7. It's pretty simple. Just follow Wil Wheaton's advice. Don't be a dick.

Just the good stuff. No sparkling vampires allowed in my porn. :)

True. But some delusional people still think they sparkle. Those people are evil.

Crap. I keep getting the tickies.

I'm hoping that enough people are pissed about this that they'll give you a real option to disable it on your posts.

Where are these tickies you speak of? I followed your instructions, but nothing changed.
Sep. 2nd, 2010 03:26 am (UTC)
The tickies are either there or not there when you comment depending on if they've been removed from the style you're looking at it with.
Your LJ when I go to comment & I'm looking at it in your style:
comment in Sandy's
My LJ when I go to comment & I'm looking at it in my style:

I think some LJ themes don't let you change it in the CSS.

That was me originally. I got it from someone who got it from someone else...

Cool. I'd copied & pasted to put it in at the end of my post & lost track of where I found it originally. Post edited to credit you for the awesome find. :) The other people I'd seen with it had gotten it the friend of a friend route too.

Bless you - it worked and I've posted the instructions now too.

This basically removes the option for you. But not for me. So I'm still seeing the options right now making this comment. (I always use "style mine" for ease of reading.)

We should have a way to opt out of this completely, which would disallow anyone from cross-posting their comments if we didn't want them to.

I still don't get why people would want to post their comments on Facebook or Twitter. I can get announcing, but not commenting. And, honestly, I do not want to know that much about my friends!
