How To: Getting Semagic to Post Tags to InsaneJournal

Yeah, I can't live without this feature, to be honest. After digging through the comments at ljwin32_sema, I found the answer. Now, I'm a technical n00b most of the time, so it took me a second to figure out what was meant by "you run regedit (start/run), open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\alex semenov\livejournalU\user_[your username]\" and therefor was stuck from the get go. However, I figured it out, and, having done so, will share the how to [with images] with those who are as clueless as I am.

I'm running Window's XP, and therefor know not how to do this with anything you're running that's not extremely similar. If you run something different, and work out how to do this, feel free to let me know [images are great] and I can add it to this post.

Oh, let's get into the computer's inner programs! )

Now, a word on tags. If you post as different users from the same client and don't want to share tags between journals, it's pretty simple to do. Go to your program file for Semagic and locate the file named taglist.txt. To separate which tags go to which journal, now, just open that and save it in the same place as taglist.USERNAME.txt. For example, my taglist file for this journal would be called taglist.lilbreck.txt. Don't forget to clear the new file after/before you save it.

edited to add in a link to a tutorial from [info]dossier on how to back up your files before you go messing with them. Tutorial is in this comment.

I've got a question

For those of you who post to IJ with Semagic, does your section for tags not show up? For some reason, mine won't. It's kinda frustrating.

Edit: Apparently, there's fix for this. Check out he comments. And if anyone of you can figure that out, I'll give you a cookie if you explain it to me. I figured it out! And, I'll be posting a tutorial shortly.

Making a Loud Noise Until Rescued

"I thought," said Piglet earnestly, "that if Eeyore stood at the bottom of the tree, and if Pooh stood on Eeyore's back, and if I stood on Pooh's shoulders----"

"And if Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha ha! Amusing in a quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

"Well," said Piglet meekly, "I thought----"

"Would it break your back, Eeyore?" asked Pooh, very much surprised.

"That's what would be so interesting, Pooh. Not being quite sure till afterwards."
