The most excellent Gavin of Kode Koan just got me an incredibly simple one-liner fix for MTLJPost, an MT plugin that cross-posts MT to LiveJournal (MT 3.x broke it.)

If you read me there, you can see it works again!

This fix is cake – in your MT install, edit this file:

      [MT Root]/plugins/MTLJPost/MTLJPost.pl

Change this line:

      $t->param(‘TRACKBACKCOUNT’, $entry->trackback_count);
to
      $t->param(‘TRACKBACKCOUNT’, $entry->ping_count);

And that’s it. It should start working.

Thanks, Gavin!

  1. Yes! Yes! Yes!

    I was just yesterday thinking “I need some way to cross-post MT to livejournal. Perhaps a plugin, or a script or something. I’ll be its already been done.” but then because I am lazy and I have a zillion other things to do I thought “maybe the solution to this problem will magically fall from the sky.”

    Hooray!

  2. YES!

    And as i promised, I’ll look into how hard it’ll be to upgrade the whole thing for a new release that is using all 3.33’s new features..

    That’ll probably be the final version though 🙁

  3. Hey, Laura, ain’t it bitchin’ when shit like that just falls in your lap?

    Gavin, thanks, brutha. I gotta talk to SixApart about getting that built into MT; now that they own LJ it seems like an obvious choice, just a check box and away we go.
