To Import:

Go to Organize -> Import Content

https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/importer

Click 'Start Another Import' and follow the instructions. Literally as easy as clicking a button.

Might take a while, as everyone is importing at the moment. If you click on 'refresh' it'll update you on how it's going. Entries & comments are usually the ones that take the longest.



How to crosspost & add a [personalised] footer:

Organise -> Manage Account -> Other sites (tab)

This will take you to this page:

http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/?cat=othersites

Add New Account

You can disable comments on crossposts, so all comments have to be made on DW.

And just below you can add a footer, including personalizing the message. ☺

If you leave it blank it'll display the default message.

Make sure to use the dropdown to choose when you want the footer.

And press Save!



How to merge your open ID with your LJ:

Organise -> Manage Account -> History

Click on ‘Claim OpenID Account’

Put in your LJ name and they’ll merge all your Open ID comments & match up icons etc. V. handy. (Also irreversible.)


Handy tip re. icons

If you name your DW icons the same as your LJ ones, they will match when you crosspost!



ETA: Friending. DW splits this up:

Subscribe -> you add that journal to your flist
Grant Access -> they can see your flocked entries

So, is there a way to add a feed on someone's LJ flist for people posting only on DW?

Or would people get very cross, because they want to have left completely? As far as I can tell it isn't possible, so it's a very hypothetical question...

ETA: I appears to be possible, although it might be easier to set up DW notification for the DW accounts you want to follow.
