Before posting an entry in a community, you will usually need to join
it, as posting access is often granted with membership. You can then post to the community with the web interface
or a downloaded app
. There are several reasons
you may not be able to post an entry in a community.
Use the Members security
level to post so that only members of the community can see your entry. Private
cannot be used in a community.
Go to the Post an Entry
page while logged in. In the Post to
menu, you can select the community to which you want to post.
Additionally, you will see a blue pencil icon on the small blue toolbar on any Community Info (http://community.livejournal.com/communityname
/profile) page where you have posting access (including communities which allow users to post entries without being a member). Clicking on that pencil icon will take you to an update page (http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml?u
) where you can compose and post your entry to the community.
Many downloadable apps
include the ability to post entries to a community. For information on the abilities of your preferred app, consult its documentation or its menu options. After joining a community, you will need to log out and log back into your app before you can post to it.
