Newbie help

Today I decided I wanted to edit an S2 style for the first time and so far I have pixiemoon that.
I really like it the way it is right now, except one thing...

I was wondering if anyone knew how to remove the title componant. I would like to have that box that says "compulsive adorable disorder" completely gone.

Anyone know the code?

Also, how do you change the title at the top of the browser from the default name you've given yourself on lj to what you want it to say?

I know how to do it in html but not in the s2 style system.

Any help is appreciated, thanks :)

Friends page name variations

There were a few people who asked in the last few months if it was possible to determine which Friend's page was being viewed. That is, the ability to determine if it was the regular friends page (/friends), or a filter page (/friends/filter) or the friends' friends page (/friendsfriends). At that time, it was not possible.

Due to updates that were made in the last few days to the S2 core, it is now possible. On the FriendsPage class, there are three new variables:
  1. filter_active - A bool variable. The value is True if a filter is being used, False otherwise.
  2. filter_name - A string variable. The value is the name of the filter if one is being used, empty otherwise.
  3. friends_mode - A string variable. The value is "friendsfriends" if viewing the Friends' Friends page, empty otherwise.
They've also modified the core to adjust the output of the view_title() function on the friends pages to reflect this new information that's available and it's been automatically incorporated into Component. I thought I'd let everybody know just in case you could find some interesting use for it.

Happy Coding everyone!


Just wanted to stop and say thanks to a couple people.  I just spent the morning tweaking my LJ mind_opened and with your help* I got it looking EXACTLY they way I wanted.  After a couple simple searches for transparent, scroll, & background I found exactly what I needed in plain english. 

tulipswallow - Beautiful page!  I even had second thoughts about going completely transparent after seeing it.  hmmm... maybe later I'll make some more adjustments... :-)

raditzsex - Wow! *bows to your greatness*   Master, I have so much to learn!

luna_rein - Some of us just need it written out in big friendly letters :-)  Thanks!

A few things...

First I would like to thank everyone that has offered their help to beginners like myself!! I would like to especially thank kunzite1. You are very helpful & I thank you for that!

Second...I am sorry I posted something this morning with this funky font with white text so it was screwing up. I am sorry...that's why I deleted the post!!

I've noticed on a few people's layouts they have component boxes in which the words are actually moving. How do you do that? I mean it's scrolling without scroll bars. It just goes on its own constantly. I love that! Can anyone help with that?!?

I love this community because everyone is very patient for us newbies or people that have NO CLUE as to what HTML (or xHTML) CODE is!!

Hi Everyone.

I have a question about the transparency of entries. I want the entries background and the component background to be 100% transparent but I don't want the words of my profile nor the actual journal entry words to go transparent. This is what I have for transparency that makes both the BACKGROUND and the WORD ENTRIES/COMPONENT CONTENTS to go transparent, which is something I DON'T WANT.

Thanks!! So Much!!
