LJ-specific o'clock:

Please don't crosspost comments on posts of mine to your Intertwitterfaceblags, pls.

You might see me have a FB thingamadoodle on my profile for a bit, but that's temporary whilst I tweak my Profile Reset GM script.  (I hadn't taken all external-services options into account, apparently.)  I not only have no intention of crossposting a damn thing, I wrote a script to remove even accidental clickage.  So no worries.


Here's what you can do to hide the options for yourself:

* Go here.  (Journal > Journal Style > Customize > CSS.)

* Add this line: .b-repost-item { display: none; }

* Click Save Changes.

That, at least, will prevent you from accidentally selecting one of the options when you make a comment.  Also, it sets commenting back to "[type] [tab] [enter]" to post the comment, which is pleasant.

Alas, this only works for certain journal styles, and not for format=light so much.  To get it for all styles, including format=light, you'd probably want to put this into Stylish, instead.  Naturally, I'll be doing this in GM, because I also want to remove that whole row, because I don't care about the settings and I like cleanliness in my comment forms.

Of course, I have approx. a million gazillion GM scripts, so this is hardly shocking.

I got greasemonkey, but I still have the options showing. How do I make it go away in my layout? Help me please! Yes, that was overwrought. Sorry, I'm having a tough day.

Already did that one too. I might have to change my LJ layout. Ugh.

I still see the upper options, but not the little ticky boxes at the bottom.

Thanks anyway, I think my LJ style is just determined to piss me off.
