The latest version of Semagic contains the following changes:
· Posting to (no editing).
· Post options for Blogger (tags, draft state).
· Upload into personal albums at
· data: URL for images.
· Adult content setting.
· Fixed entry deletion with Blogger, picture upload with WP, music detection with foobar2000.
· Loading settings from .ini files is disabled.

Atom publishing API implementation at Vox contains some errors that prevent editing of existing entries. That means that you can press "save" but entry is not updated at the server without any error messages.

Settings from .ini files are disabled because this method is slow, does not work for some users and generates many random crashes for large .ini files. It is replaced with another option that exports/imports registry key to/from a binary file (semagic.re1). You can copy that file with Semagic to a flash drive. Note that you need to set empty draft folder in options instead of direct path.
So exit Semagic holding Ctrl key; that saves semagic.re1 file. Then open program files/semagic folder and copy livejournalu.exe and semagic.re1 and other files to flash drive. Then run it from flash drive. An error message while importing registry file means you cannot use this method because you do not have sufficient adminstrative rights.

Do not change adult setting if you use a blog site that does not allow such entry property or you will get an error and will not be able to post. Or disable completely from the right-click menu on the dropdown list.

data: URL works only for Firefox, Opera and IE8 and has different image size limitations for each browser (and also there is a general limit for LJ entry size). Use it only if you know what it is about.


Thank you, thank you! :)

IE8? I thought that it was only up to IE7?

hi there! any plans for MacOS X support?

Is there a way to make the friends in the list that makes a usertag show only mutual friends?

I don't know if this is the place to offer an error report - but when I cross-post to insanejournal (a journal that does not does not allow such entry property) - no matter what setting I use for adult content I get the same metadata error and am blocked from posting. I have now toggled between all four 'adult content' settings and am blocked from IJ.

disable from by right-clicking on the dropdown list for that user

Bug report: Incorrect formatting shows as correct in WYSIWYG view

WYSIWYG view does not match the one after posting to LJ so WYSIWYG view
can't be used to verify correctness of formatting

Sample post entry:

Try to post it to LJ - it contains incorrect <td width="154" valign="center" bgcolor="#fcf6d2" align="center"> entry which shows up in LJ after post as bare HTML, but this incorrectness is not viewable in WYSIWYG

How long does it take for the authentication process to finish? After waiting a long time, I clicked on Skip Login and it freezes. Help, please?

most likely it is your firewall

I was able to connect to my proxy with the version of Semagic prior to this, but with this new version I can't. It gives me a "Cannot contact server" error.

I don't know my proxy login/password, though; presumably, I was just able to use the proxy settings for IE before.

nothing changed with proxy, that is your firewall.

Is there any possibility ever of creating a Sema client for Mac?

well, it works with Vox, but boy is it clunky. Ended up having to completely disable proxy and I'm still not sure I won't be forced to enter the email address every time.

you will not be forced if you do not change existing account in semagic but create a new one

When I paste text from microsoft word, I want the option of text or hmtl to pop up. I used to get this but suddenly I don't and I don't know how to get it back. I don't want hmtl or wysiwyg; I want the text I'm copying to look like anything else I would type into Semagic. Thanks!

it was appearing automatically when data contained some particular garbage styles. also you can manually select edit/paste special and also select default type.

Thanks. I think, it would be a good idea to add automated typograph. Examples are here:,

you mean default autoreplace list? where to get such list? at least the one you personally need

I don't think your 'adult content' addition is working correctly. I never touched it. it's set at 'journal default'. Yet when I try to post to multiple jounrals it won't post to IJ telling me something about 'unrecognized metadata.. adult content'. Can this be corrected??

Thank you for a great program.

It does not work as it should but there is a workaround i.e. you should go to that account and select disable in the context menu for that dropdown list.

unfortunally it's not working

do you have any mirrors?

I just updated and now I can't connect anymore. In an above comment you said it was the firewall, I don't understand why it won't connect anymore?

because the contents of .exe file is different if firewall desides based on content but not on path only. so you need to explicitly add each updated program to allowed list.

I'm just wondering (and I'm not sure if this is the place to ask this, if not, I'm sorry).. but I have windows media 11 and not 9 or 10, so I'm wondering if there's a plug in for the media 11 for auto detection.

plugin is the same but it does not show track title. at least that plugin.

Vanished Friends and Communitits

I've installed the latest version and my Friends list has vanished and I don't seem to be able to select a Community to post to any more. Is it just me?

Re: Vanished Friends and Communitits

if you used .ini file you should press update from server. community list is updated during login.

в русской версии не редактируется сообщение - ошибка в метаданных

в LJ? настройки для взрослых не в LJ нет, нужно ее отключить нажав правой кнопкой на это списке в главном окне

I have noticed that Semagic can't detect music playing in my YahooJukeBox. I used to have MusicMatch and it worked fine but now it doesn't. Is there a fix for this?

Hi, I don't know where to ask this...

How can I delete an account on Semagic?


read FAQ at the download page

MMM don't want to be a bother, but I followed This Conversation
I updated Semagic, and Disable Comments... And damn, everything went fine or so I thought.

This morning I made a tutorial Post explaining your manip ... and wanted to post it in LJ and IJ, in the 3 personals account in LJ it was posted just fine ... in IJ, the entry's there but not available ... can't access it throught semagic or throught the journal ... something definitely went wrong ...

Do you have any idea?


if you do not see it in history that most likely mean you used some date in the past. if you did not post anything after it you can use edit last entry which will open last entry by id. or it is some database problem at the site.

Just downloaded the new version and now I can't connected to the server.

delete rule from the firewall and create again.

У меня вопрос по тэгам. Либо я не нашел, либо этой функции нет.
Проблема в том, что я не помню весь набор тэгов ни у себя в журнале ни в тех сообществах в которые пишу. Хотелось бы иметь возможность оставлять в выпадающем меню только те метки, которые соответствуют выбранному для постинга журналу.

Q: How to use separate taglist for particular user or LJ community?
A: Create taglist.user.txt or file. When found, it is used instead of taglist.txt.

Под Вистой не удается вставлять в пост загруженную на Фликр картинку в оригинальном размере. (Изменение соответствующей опции ничего не дает). Есть какая-то хитрость?

это не виста, а один из вопросов в FAQ на странице загрузки

Is there any plans (even in the far future maybe?) to port Semagic to the Mac? This is one application I sorely miss when I made the switch to Mac, and there is simply no Mac client that comes close to Semagic. :(

Thank you so much for all the work on the client, it really is the best client out there :)
