Frequently Asked Question #158. What is a downloadable client? Where can I get one?

Downloadable clients offer the same posting features as the web client, along with other options (downloading entries, drafts of entries, friends list tracking, friends page tracking, removing misencoded characters, signatures, and substituting text or images in lj user tags). Since every client has different options, you should consult your client's documentation for specific details about its features.
  • Create a LiveJournal First: Downloading a client does not automatically create a journal for you.

  • Finding & Downloading a Client: Select your platform on the Download a Client page to see brief descriptions of available clients, links to any client home pages, and links to clients' journals (with yet more client information).

  • Connection Problems: If your client isn't connecting to LiveJournal, there may be problems with a firewall, a proxy, or the LiveJournal web site.

  • Client Feature Suggestions: Post your feature suggestion in the client's journal or contact the client's developer.

  • lj_dev is the general LiveJournal community for client development and technical discussion.
