Editing/deleting FAQs

FAQs 2, 3 and 119 need updating to reflect recent changes in editing/deleting entries.

Suggestions, comments, Solero ice-creams?


How do I edit a journal entry I wrote?

While editing entries, if you receive an error message that states "Client error: Invalid text encoding: Cannot display non-Unicode posts unless default encoding has been selected", see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=133.


USING THE WEB INTERFACE:

Go to the "Post Comments" or "Read Comments" page for the entry you want to edit. (It doesn't matter if there are comments or not, either page will do.) On a small blue toolbar near the top of the page, if you're logged in, you should see an Edit Entry button (a blue pencil icon). Click it to go to the Edit Journal Entry page. There you can make the changes you want. Click "Save Journal Entry" to save your changes. Be careful not to click "Delete Entry" instead, as this will delete the entry entirely.

You can also edit entries at http://www.livejournal.com/editjournal.bml.

To delete an entry, see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=3

USING A DOWNLOADED CLIENT:

Many clients available for download include the ability to edit journal entries. For more information on your preferred client, consult its documentation or its menu options. See http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=158 for information on downloading a client.

Go to the entry in the usual manner, as explained at http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=2. When you get to the Edit Journal Entry page, click the "Delete Entry" button, this will permamently delete the entire entry.

Can I edit/delete an entry in a community journal?

If you posted the entry yourself, you can both edit and delete it, as long as you are still a member of the community. If you are the community's maintainer, you can delete the entry, but you can't edit it in other ways.

While editing entries, if you receive an error message that states "Client error: Invalid text encoding: Cannot display non-Unicode posts unless default encoding has been selected", see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=133. This process will need to be done by the community maintainer, while logged in as the community journal.


USING THE WEB INTERFACE:

See http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=2 for instructions on editing an entry.

See http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=3 for instructions on deleting an entry.

If you are the maintainer of the community, but are getting errors when trying to delete the entry, make sure you are logged in as the maintainer of the community and not the community journal itself.

Many clients available for download include the ability to edit or delete entries in a community. For more information on your preferred client, consult its documentation or its menu options. See http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=158 for information on downloading a client.
