1) I tried to use this tutorial to change my user icons (lj users, communities, etc), and for some reason it's simply not working at all. I even tried this layout, that is specifically for paid members. Still, no luck. =(
2) My layouts colors are different shades of grey, but when people leave me comments, the area where their username, icon, etc is....it's white, and I don't know how to change it. - Thank-you hollywoodism.
3) The sidebar, I have to manually change the font name, line height, and font size, instead of changing with all the rest of my text (like, instead of being able to just put the classification in my codes, I have to go to the customize page and change it).
Here is the layer in which I am having issues, and here is the style. I've tried looking through the tutorials and either I must be an idiot, because I can't find anything. I appreciate any help you can provide.
