Many clients available for download include the ability to edit journal entries. This may speed up the process of converting your previous entries to Friends-only or Private. For more information on your preferred client, consult its documentation or its menu options. You can download a client at http://www.livejournaljournal.com/download/ . (Note that not all LiveJournal clients are supported by InsaneJournal.)
InsaneJournal does provide the means to set a minimum security level on all posts you may make in the future. Setting this option will prevent you from slipping up and posting a public entry that you meant to post as Friends-only or Private. You will still be able to post an entry with a lower security setting by posting it with the minimum security you have set, then editing it to change the security setting.
Do not enter the < or > symbols; these are only for reference purposes. To set the minimum security level to Friends-only, replace <level> with "friends". To set the minimum security level to Private, replace <level> with "private". To turn off the minimum security level, replace <level> with "public".
If you maintain a community, you can set the minimum security level to "friends only" by executing the following command:
set for <community> newpost_minsecurity friends
Do not enter the < or > symbols; these are only for reference purposes. Replace <community> with the username of the community.
