do you know how to or if i can modify it like have it show only when the image exceeds a certain size or anything like that?

LJ Search v 2.1 --Compact Slim

Screenshots in the comments. This version uses just the basic options: Username, Interests, Region. You can add the others back if you want them. Simplified because...wtf is jabber? :P

From the K1-ified version here. The following code contains alterations to compact the design making it look uniform to the Google Search Box 2.0 and Wikipedia v1 English, in case you use either and would like to have them all look similar.

Someone emailed me all the codes for a layout last night. I went to the beginners section, and followed exactly what it said to do. After I put my codes in it, and hit compile it said no errors. I went to refresh my page, and the layout still isn't showing up. I don't know what the problem is I followed all of the directions on this page http://www.livejournal.com/community/component_help/536435.html

Has anyone ever had this problem?

implimenting the FreeFind search tutorial...

I have checked and rechecked that I followed the steps in the FreeFind Searchbox tutorial (link) correctly... the tutorial is very straightforward, but FreeFind is not succeeding at indexing my journal. When I ask FreeFind to "Index now", shortly afterwards I receive an email indicating:

While one or more pages on your site were read, no pages were indexed. This may happen for a number of reasons.
a) there is no indexable content on your site(for example there is no text on your pages or you just have a blank page or you only have images on your page or your page is only JavaScript)
b) there is an HTML error on your home page
c) you have used the "exclude pages" feature in the FreeFind control center and accidentally excluded your whole site. A common way that users do this is to exclude their starting point(s). In that case the spider does not read the starting page which results in it not finding your other pages.

I added the function MonthPage::print() {} code from the tuorial to the end of my current theme layer, in doing so I amended the code with the ID number of the style layer I created per the instructions, and I un-commented the pink commented lines. No compiling errors.

In setting up the FreeFind account:
I replaced ljusername with my LJ username when identifying my siteURL.
I replaced ljusername with my LJ username in defining the exclusions to indexing, which is otherwise copied exactly from the tutorial:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/bemocked/*?.searchstart=true index=no follow=yes
http://www.livejournal.com/users/bemocked/*?.searchseed=true index=no follow=yes
http://www.livejournal.com/users/bemocked/*.html?s2id* index=yes follow=no
http://www.livejournal.com/users/bemocked/*.html index=no follow=no
http://www.livejournal.com/users/bemocked/*.html?mode=reply index=no follow=no
http://www.livejournal.com/users/bemocked/*.html?thread=*#* index=no follow=no

Currently I have specified the site URL (per the tutorial) in the FreeFind account as the following:

Any suggestions as to what I am missing, or what I have done wrong? Should I have modified the dates in the Site URL from the default in the tutorial? Should the dates to begin indexing (in the pink text in the tutorial) be set to match the dates in the site URL I specify for the FreeFind account? Do these dates need to be dated after my first LJ entry is dated (which 1970 obviously predates)?

Entries tutorial questions

hello. Quck questions ? hmmm. I hope the answer isnt right under my nose.

So I used the override my entries tutorial code and learned so much about how the component layout is written and understood. I fixed my date like I needed it almost but my questions are.

I want my edit and memory icons to be back up in the left top corner of my book instead of the right lower corner. I know where the code is where the stuff is at and I tried messing with the align and what not but still can not figure out what I am doing wrong ?

My layer is viewable. Its under my theme layer not my user layer. The number is 3919639.

My other question is about my journal subject. I know this is somewhere in that same code but still can not figure out where but, anyway. How do I get the subject of my entries moved to the left side instead of the right side? Where is the code that justifies the journal subject ?

Thanks in advance if anyone knows :)
