(no subject)

Hello everyone, I'm very new to such codings in livejournal. I've only minimal knowledge in simple html codes. Thus it's a real tedious task for me to figure out how to customise my livejournal.

Here's some questions which I hope to get some advice and help on:

1. all customisations are done at "Your Layers" page?
2. how do i create an additional component which is able to accept html codes?
3. i had wanted to have a banner at the top of my page, but still keeping the rest of the page looking about the same. i've read some relevant tutorials but i don't know where should i insert the codings to. please advise me?
4. what about resizing the component sizes? i'm considering to reduce the entries component slightly smaller by abit.

thank you all. :)


Hi. Quick question. I used pamelajoy's tutorial to center my entries. And I used the header code that's in the tutorials on here. I've used the header tutorial before, and it worked fine. But..my journal doesn't have the header that I put into my layers. Yes, it also deleted my 'user info', 'friends' 'recent entries' and 'website' so there's nothing. Collapse )

Getting error message I don't understand

Ok so I've followed all the tutorials I can. I'm trying to create a header picture at the top of my journal. I don't want it to change my lay-out or my colors, I just want a picture on top.

I went to the Advanced Customization page and created a layout-specific layer. I clicked edit on my new layer and in the box to "compile" I wrote the code I was told to in tutorials, with my specifications ofcourse. When I clicked the compile button this error message showed. I don't understand it.

This was the code I placed in the box......

layerinfo "type" = "theme";
layerinfo "name" = "tara singing spell";

function page::print_custom_head() {
   <style type="text/css">
     body {
      background-image: url(http://usera.imagecave.com/seiramnomad/1stbannorforlj.jpg) ;
      background-repeat: no-repeat ;
      background-attachment: fixed ;
      background-position: top ;
      margin-top: 350px ;

What do I do? Thanks
