Crossposting an entry

Actually crossposting an entry to other weblogs (or accounts) is a piece of cake.

  1. First, make sure the entry is set to Published. Crossposter will not post entries marked as Unpublished

    Published Entry Status

  2. Next, click the Select Accounts link that appears in the Crosspost To field under the Publishing section of the entry editing screen.

    Select Accounts link

  3. This will open the following box which lists all the crossposting accounts configured for the current blog. Simply check those you wish to crosspost the entry to.

    Select Accounts to Crosspost To

  4. Click Save to crosspost your entry. If an error occurs during crossposting, you will be duly informed by an error message. If the crossposting was successful, your Activity Log will be updated with an appropriate message:

    Successful Crossposting

  5. When you edit an entry, sites you have already crossposted to will automatically be checked (and thus automatically updated).

This looks like a great plugin, but I'm having trouble getting it to work--I don't get an error message, but once I've chosen my Livejournal account from the Crossposting Accounts menu and clicked OK, nothing appears in the Compose Entry window to indicate that I've chosen it, and when I save the entry it doesn't crosspost. What might I be doing wrong?

Mike, did you check your MT error log? I saw the same thing happen, and my activity log showed that the Perl part of the plugin was dying for lack of a module (DateTime, in my case). I installed it via the CPAN, and now that error is fixed for me.

I did, and it gave me the names of two missing modules. I had those installed, though, and suddenly it started asking for a third. Since I don't have that level of access with my provider, I need to know just how many modules need to be installed or else who knows how many requests I'm going to need to submit.

In my case, it's dying because it can't find Encode.pm. I am using Perl 5.6.1, and apparently Encode.pm doesn't work with it. Is there any way around that? I was using a crossposting plugin in 3.36 that seemed to work just fine.
