extra components

it's been a while since I edited my component theme, and I can't remember what the override is that creates additional components.

now I know all of you are going to link me to the tutorial here called additional components (which is a horrible tutorial by the way), but that's not what I'm asking.

I am using the additional component override and it's just overriding the regular free text box, not adding a second component. I have free text on.

sorry for the silly question, and thanks.

For the component layout, how do you make the boxes which hold the text much smaller? I can make small text in my theme in component, but the boxes still stay big and it looks ugly. Help?

scrollbars in entries

ok i am using the shrink center component layout atm. i have had sucess in all the previous layouts with adding scrolling entries. the problem now is when i use the tutorial for it, it stretches my layout back to almost its original size. it defeats the purpose of having a shrunk layout. so.. the question is does anyone know how to incorperate the scrollbars in entries without making my layout huge again?

thank ya

I've tried looking through the tutorials but don't know where to look?
I get this when trying to compile:

Compile error: : Layer is declared user but expecting a theme layer
S2::Checker, S2/Checker.pm, 330
S2::Compiler, S2/Compiler.pm, 34

Okay so I'm trying to work with component here and things aren't going exactly smoothly. Can anyone help? I want the entry text to match the sidebar text (in size) and I want that component that says 'about this journal' to go away. That's annoying as hell. So, please help?

You can see my journal here for further reference.

I really would like to have the Random Quote box in my livejournal, but I find the tutorial complicted, could someone write me up the code to just place it in it?

Adding Component To Top

Howdy all,

I wanted to add a comment/graphic component to the top of my LJ, one that would allow people that wanted to comment on my journal at large the ability to do so. I was looking for a tutorial on it, but I'm not really sure what it would be called or where I could locate it.

Thanks for helping the semi-helpless.

*NO* Background

hi guys, I just recently removed a background image I had uploaded to my LJ, and it automatically reverted back to that default "component" background. (you know, the little horizontal lines.) how can I get rid of that, and just have a solid color as my background?

edit// thanks eduthepenguin!!
