http://geruhjima.livejournal.com/ -- NEVERMIND SOLVED! Thank you so much uniquewonders and cookiegirlie. I would have NEVER figured it out if I didn't have your help. XD
ANOTHER PROBLEM: whenever i try to add an image (ANYTHING really, other than text) in place of the content on the "moo" component part (for lack of better term), i always get errors. i DO have the additional component code added in my overrides and free text enabled, but the example stuff on that doesn't even show up, so it's not even doing anything for my layout.
i tried deleting the "moo" component stuff completely and just using additional component codes elsewhere in my overrides, but i always get errors with that as well.
what am i doing wrong?
Also, another question (thought not as big of a deal):
How do I get those stupid gray lines do go away? ;_; CAN I even make them go away, or am I stuck with their company?
ALL PROBLEMS SOLVED, thanks for the fantastic help. i really appreciate it.
