navigation

hi there!

i've been checking the memories and stuff but i can't seem to find what i need.

what i want to do is to get rid of the navigation bar AND the navigation component and then build sort of a navigation component myself. which means i need to know how to get rid of it first and then i need the links for going back and forth (skipping).

is there a soul out there who'd like to give me this information as a xmas present? ::grins::

CSS & Dates

I've never had to ask a question before, but this is really confusing me. What I was hoping was to get the date in my entries to look like adorekisha's, but with different font colors (and maybe other minor tweaks). So I've read the Print Custom Head tutorial, change the date format tutorial, I've stared at the layers and codes provided at s2layers, and even went to brush up on my CSS at ezboard. I've gone as far as to try to copy the layers provided at s2layers and edit it so that I get the results I want, but it doesn't seem to transfer over. Or I'm not understanding what part of the date I need to manipulate and change. But either way, when I strip someone's CSS layers and apply it to my layer just as a starting point, nothing seems to change. So I'm thinking either I don't understand the print custom head tutorial, when it comes to CSS and dates or its something in my layer.

The reason I think this is because in the beginning I have this:

Collapse )


Everything else is just modifications to the components, like the profile, and adding extra components, and adding square components. I was thinking perhaps I had to find a way to combine the no border image code, along with the first part to get the CSS to show up. But even then I'm not sure if that's what I should be doing.

Layout Frustration

I have gone through a few communities and this community's faq and friends, but I cannot figure out for the life of me this idea I have for my component.

Basically I am trying to figure out if I can add some images down the side of my layout. I was told that I could use a 'div' tag but I have yet to figure out where to place it. I am guessing that it will be a table code to add the images (all different) down the side.

I have a fixed background and would like to leave it without having to cut it up and mess with it. I would like the images to run down the left side and have the journal entries on the right side. I currently am using Unearthed (I think) as my style and have slightly customised it.

I do understand basic coding and can cut and paste, altering slightly to get my desired effects.

Any help would be appreciated.
