The Thing of High Importance

I'm sure most of my flist do not wish to have their posts/comments crossposted to Facebook and/or Twitter, no? So.

This was originally posted by the wonderful emiliglia. So I'm spreading the love!

As many of you are probably aware, LJ released the option to link your posts/comments to Facebook and/or Twitter, which was probably one of the dumbest things they've ever done since anyone with Twitter seems to already have their LJ friends on it, and then Facebook and LJ are the lines that never, ever cross. Because I, for one, don't need my cousin's 12 year olds to find the mansex I write.

The following line of code, though, doesn't just hide the repost boxes to you like the Greasemonkey code for Firefox going around does. It completely removes the option for everyone viewing your journal or community. I've done it for this comm as well as my personal journal.

1. Go to Journal > Journal Style

2. Go to Customize your theme

3. Go to Custom CSS

4. Copy and paste .b-repost-item {display:none} (make sure you're just getting the bolded text) into the Custom stylesheet

5. Save changes

Now not only can you not crosspost comments, but anyone viewing your account can't either. This doesn't get rid of the reposting option when you're making a new entry, but at least that one's easy to avoid.
