What is a client? What clients can I use with Dreamwidth?

A client is an independent software application that allows you to post to multiple journals/accounts at once from the client interface.

The majority of clients were written for the LiveJournal platform and work best on LiveJournal and sites running LiveJournal code. Because Dreamwidth is a code fork of the LiveJournal code and has changed some things (for example, breaking down the Friends List into access/subscription), some features of the client may not work.

A list of clients can be found in the Dreamwidth Wiki under: List of Compatible Clients, along with any notes on how well they work. This list has not been updated since 2014 and may be inaccurate.
