I have a quick and hopefully easy question. If you look at my layout, there is a space between my navigation bar and the rest of the journal. I don't know how it did that, because I never set it, and I can't find any way to unset it, so I was wondering how you remove that space from there?

How would you go about removing the user icon from your entries, as mine is on my journal?

Ok, I feel really dumb for having to ask this as I usually find exactly what I'm looking for in the tutorials but this one has totally stumped me.

I'm trying to change the background colour of my journal to white, which I've done via edit customizations but I want plan white, without the Component default lines. I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it!

Any help would be awesome - thank you <3

i dont understand you people. :P

code alterationCollapse )

also. if the content of your entries is wider than the width you have set for your journal, it will expand. period. you need to fix your entries so that the overflow is set to auto so scrollbars will activate when needed.

a list of thingies that i made up yesterday:
  • s1 overrides will not work in s2.
  • s2 is a programming language.
  • you will encounter errors.
  • some errors will be hard to fix.
  • you need to learn how to speak s2 in order to get anywhere.
  • whining will not be tolerated.
  • you will be ignored if you are not willing to learn, be patient and cooperate.
  • there are many things that can and cannot do with s2 due to the limitations of s2 and livejournal.
  • s2 is hard. deal with it.

How do you go about removing the user icons and community icons from your friends page?

Here's the links to the images if you're not sure what I mean.

Also, how can I make it so that on the friends page, the user name is above the icon, and the community name is below it? For example, it would look like this:

I've looked through previous posts and the tutorials because I'm sure this is somewhere, but I just can't find it.

I'd like to change the title bar (I think that's the correct term) on my friends page to say something different. Anyone willing to point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Hello all,

I checked for "comment link" questions in the community and it helped with one problem but I'm still having difficulties. When I used S1, a friend of mine gave me a code to make my comment links appear like this

1 kiss(es)// steal my breath

Meaning, after the first comment, it would add es to the end. I've been wanting to go back to this since I've been using component, but when I try to add 1 kisses // steal my breath it turns it into 1 steal my breath // steal my breath. *laughs* Obviously not the effect I want.

I used the code in the overrides section (for S1) but I don't see where I could use it now. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Addon to the custom security icon tutorial.

By default, public posts have no icon set, and this is represented by the security designation "". Now, the code implemented for the custom security icon tutorial does not change the public icon because Component is set up to only display an icon when the security designation does not equal "". This is done by the statement if($e.security != "").

What you have to do is implement the code from the original custom security icon tutorial, and then find and replace that statement:
if($e.security != "")
with:
if($e.security != "a")
This tells LJ to display a security icon if the post is not "a" security, which posts never are. If you do not do this, this tutorial will not work. Oh, and a can be replaced with anything so long as there is a value between the "", and it is not "protected" or "private".

Then, what you have to do is, where the original code says this:

###############################################################################################

# set icon to default icon

    var string iconurl = $e.security_icon.url;

# if you don't want to change the private icon, add a # to the following line

    if ($e.security=="private") { $iconurl = "YOUR PRIVATE ICON URL"; }

# if you don't want to change the protected (friends-only) icon, add a # to the following line

    if ($e.security=="protected") { $iconurl = "YOUR PROTECTED ICON URL"; }

############################################################################################### {

replace it with this code:

###############################################################################################

# set icon to default icon

    var string iconurl = $e.security_icon.url;

# if you don't want to change the private icon, add a # to the following line

    if ($e.security=="private") { $iconurl = "YOUR PRIVATE ICON URL"; }

# if you don't want to change the protected (friends-only) icon, add a # to the following line

    if ($e.security=="protected") { $iconurl = "YOUR PROTECTED ICON URL"; }

# the following line changes the public icon

    if ($e.security=="") { $iconurl = "YOUR PUBLIC ICON URL HERE"; }
############################################################################################### {


And there you have it. Hopefully this is of use to someone and I haven't just written out something that people already know how to do :)

ok, since I can't figure out the border thing, I'll put up with it, but here's another question

Is there a way to make my components bigger? Not the entries, but everything else on the right side. I want to make them wider.

Title your entry, please. Thanks!
If you look closely you can see that my date on my journal is very close to the border.

here is all of my code. Please do not use it as your own! I worked hard on this.

code coming soon!

•I was able to get the image I'd wanted at the top of my journal, but was wondering how to center everything to where it would be the same width as my header and over to the right so I could add in a background...

And speaking of background:

•I also wanted to use my own personal background as well. When I tried and put in an image link in my edit layers (set page_background_image = "http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/spectrelj/wallpaper/indieboyswalllrg.jpg";) it didn't show up!

•I'm also trying to get my date and time on entries to look very similar to that of demeanor

•Also curious to how I can move my HEADER LINKS centered with my header image...

•And lastly; How do I add in transparency for my borders? Especially around the links and profile?

Sorry! >.< Help!
