Stopping the Facebook Insanity in LJ

I am not here to tell you what I do or do not want. I think we're all on the same page.

I am here to share a simple solution if you do not want people to post any part of your posts or their replies to your posts to Facebook via the new feature.

The following line of code completely removes the option for everyone viewing your journal or community.

1. Go to Journal > Journal Style

2. Go to Customize your theme

3. Go to Custom CSS

4. Copy and paste this-

.b-repost-item {display:none}

into the Custom stylesheet

5. Save changes

It is as easy as that! Now we can all sleep better at night.

Thanks, Deb. I've seen folks posting stuff related to this topic in their journals, but I've been clueless to what changes were made in LJ.

So this pretty much gets rid of the Share this! clicky link?

LJ gave folks two check boxes when they either post, or (and this was the issue maker) when they left a comment to someone else's post, that would automatically send it to Facebook and/or Twitter.

This was a violation of trust because it worked in locked posts.

I'm really glad that a quick and easy fix was found to a profoundly stupid option

Sadly, that code does not work with my layout. :(

I did that yesterday, but I think LJ still needs to come up with a better solution. I might be reading it wrong, but it sounded like someone could still set their options to automatically repost everything they write on public entries, no ticky box needed. Of course, if you're friends only it's not a big deal, but I don't want to do that if I don't have to. :(
