unquietmind: How to post in this community

Welcome, everyone!
I just realized that some folks might not know how to make a community post. Here are the instructions:


How do I post in a community?

You
will need to first join a community before you can post, as posting
access is frequently granted with membership. You can then post to the
community using either the web interface or a downloaded client.

To
post so that only members of the community can see your entry, you will
need to select the "Friends" security level. There is no way to use the
"Private" or "Custom" security levels in a community.

If you are having problems posting in a community, please see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=212


TO POST USING THE WEB INTERFACE

Go to the Update Journal page (http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml) while logged in. In the drop-down list titled "Post to", you can select the community to which you want to post.

Some
communities may allow users to post entries without being a member. If
this is the case, you will see a blue pencil icon on the small blue
toolbar on the Community Info page. Clicking on that pencil icon will
take you to an update page where you can compose and post your entry to
the community.


TO POST USING A DOWNLOADED CLIENT

Many
clients available for download include the ability to post entries to a
community. For more information on your preferred client, consult its
documentation or its menu options.



I hope that helps.
