Importing Dreamwidth journals into Dreamwidth journals
Import Content, Entries
It would be uberly, superly awesome if you could import a DW journal into another DW journal. For example, I created ABC as a public journal and XYZ as a private friends only journal and eventually, I decide I'd like to import ABC into XYZ so I can have all my entries in one place.
I'm really surprised no one has suggested this yet and so now I'm wondering if it's one of those things that just can't be done and I'm the village idiot standing around waiting for everyone to breathe water. :P Or worse, it's some kind of cyber-faux-pas to request such a thing...
One drawback to this thing that I am suggesting is that, if someone combines their journals but leaves the original one still standing, it takes up superfluous server space. It could be implemented such that, if you combine DW journals, the one being imported is automatically queued for deletion...but there could be a reason someone would want to combine and leave the original standing. I don't know.
The reason I came up with this at all is because I'm consolidating ALL of my online journals into one journal and I would like to add my DW journals to this one.
OOO! I just thought of something else actually...MOVING entries from one DW journal to another. So it would be a totally different feature from the Import Content because would be A.) importing entries and B.) deleting the entries from the place they were imported. That could get really tricky though - if there were any glitches at all, entries could be lost forever...
Well, I think I'm done brainstorming this one. :P I'll go ahead and turn this over to the people who know what they're talking about and I'll wait to see if I've invented the wheel or if I'm suggesting we all start breathing water. ;)
Should be implemented as-is.
Should be implemented with changes. (please comment)
Shouldn't be implemented.
(I have no opinion)
