Thrall - My Heart Calling

(no subject)

Hello... sorry to bother you guys, but I honestly can't find a solution to this.

I prefer to have white text on a dark background for my entries; the problem is that this makes the text on the post comment page (like Anonymous/Logged-in/Different User bits) white as well, which means it doesn't show up. I'm sure there's some simple way to override this, but I can't figure it out... can someone help?

..back again..

I was actually naive enough to believe that if I stared at the code long enough, I'd figure out what the problem was.

I've combined the Shrinking Components, Graphics above Entries and Square Components tutorials and I get no compile errors. Yet when I go to view the journal it won't load. I'm also having trouble knowing where to insert the extra components code.

My layer is here.

Any insight would be very much appreciated!

nb: nevermind, I started it from scratch and got it sorted!

I've looked through the entries and the FAQ and couldn't find this, and also, pamelajoy, who created the tutorials that I used to customize my layout, told me that she's been a member here for quite some time and hasn't seen this question -- so, I'm going to chance asking. My sincere apologies if it's already been asked and answered.

Is there a way to add the "back to the top" command to the component layout? It's the one thing I really miss from the opal style -- but not enough to change back. Yet. *g*

Thanks in advance for your help.

Moving Friends Userpics

If this is possible it has probably been noted elsewhere, but I could find no trace of it in the tutorial or by searching past entries.

Is it possible to move the userpic on my friends page to the opposite side of the entry? I'd like to have the text more in the middle of the screen, so with the layout I have now it would be best if the pics were on the right.

I'm highly coding illiterate, but trying to muddle my way through some customizations. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

modifying entries

ok i know this has been covered before., but i spent a long time with the code for modifying entries and was unable to play with it and get what i wanted. primarily because the code supplied is very different to the default. I infact really like the default and dont want it changed except to take away borders from the userpics and make the userpics link to their userpic page.

i can't do that from the code supplied. has anyone ever posted something akin to the original component entries layout? or can someone tell me how i can extract this code myself to start playing with it? (or is it simply a trial and error of writing it on your own?)

also the code supplied for modifying entries uses gray versions of the memory, back/forward buttons. when in fact those found on my journal are pretty white colour coordinating much better ;)
