Ok, I think I have the code fixed the best I can. I couldn't figure out how to make it *not* stretch the page out with the userpics on each entry. It works fine on every page but the recent entries page. So if you use this, you'll want to turn off the "userpics on recent page" option.
Also, you can still use your free_text components, but you can't choose which side they will go on. They will print under your profile, calendar, and links components. But for some reason I can't get the if_viewer_is_owner or whatever it is to work in the custom components in the new column. So I kept my "update journal" component in my free_text so I could still use that function.
editted to add... Sorry, kunzite1 I meant to put a thank you in here for helping me with the comp_header_open, comp_header_close, comp_footer things! That made it *so* much easier to do the components, Thank you so much :)
Me, I'm crooked. *laughs* I made a funny. Anyway.. click here, if you are using anything other than Mozilla Firebird or Netscape (already checked them) .. and tell me if it looks straight and neat in your browser? I was playing with the componants. Thanks! :) Comment below if anything is off.
