So I'm desperate to get the hell outta dodge LJ land, because of the ads and the other hideousness. I'm trying to make the full transition to Dreamwidth, but what makes it difficult is that, despite having imported my friendslist, my reading page still only shows dreamwidth accounts. I'm pretty sure I'm missing some obvious ticky box somewhere or... something, but still. Confused! Can anyone help?

Via the network, hoping that's okay

Nope, that's how it works for now.

The killer app that will make your LJ friends' posts show up on your DW reading page (including allowing you to read f-locked posts that you have access to) is in the works, but it hasn't been implemented yet.

So at the moment, importing your friendslist just means that they all have access to your access-locked posts on DW. You still have to go over to LJ to read their posts (I recommend using Firefox with Adblock and NoScript).

But if you hang on for a bit, that should change.

ETA: if you're only interested in someone's public posts, you can set up a DW feed for their LJ and subscribe to that.

Nope! Btw, [community profile] getting_started is a very handy comm for asking this sort of stuff while you get settled.
