Charting-wise, is there still a LP, do temps still go up?

You shouldn't see the change in temperature if you have anovulatory cycle.

Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).

The typical anovulatory cycle as charted sometimes looks like it has a vague trend of increase along with a zig-zag pattern of temps, but there isn't a discernible temperature shift. You can see some (user-identified) anovulatory cycle charts in Fertility Friend by going to the "Chart Gallery" tab and clicking on "anovulatory."

I'm not sure how likely it is to have a definite temperature shift without true ovulation, but I know it's not considered typical. I hope someone else has a more precise answer.

There is no discernable temp shift and no, there is no LP, as that is the time between ovulation and AF.

One of my cycles was annov. If you click the chart in my siggy and then go back to cycle 3, that's it. I got bored after CD 110 though and stopped temping. The temp shift at the end was artificial and brought on by Provera to induce a period. Annov. cycles can be very short though too. Just not mine. :
