Title your entry, please. Thanks!
I tried out some tutorial stuff for this, but nothing worked, so I hope someone can help me out.

So I finally got my layout looking the way I wanted it with help of a code by panda_cookie... just did a copy&paste and then put my own pictures etc in. Only problem with that is that I don't understand what the bulk of the code is doing, meaning I can't fix it if it "breaks". Which it did, somewhat.

So here's my question: is it possible to resize the navigation bar? I figured out how to bring it back (the code I used made it disappear), but it's going all the way across the screen. Is there a way to make it shorter so that it'll be the same width as the rest of my journal?

Also, I noticed that vertical scrollbars randomly pop up on my entries. The same entry will have a bar sometimes and sometimes it won't, even though I set no limit in lenght to the entries (so there shouldn't be a vertical scroll at all, right?). Just wondering if that's just my browser or if there's something I can do to fix it.

I'd be grateful for any help or suggestions, especially concerning the navigation bar. Thanks!

Ok.. I feel really silly but I have to post this.

In the past I have attempted to make my main page smaller (entries) and with scrollbars if it's too long.
I remember there was a tutorial for this but I have no idea where to put the coding and when I put it in before there were all these errors.
I've asked ljfriends in the past but they seem annoyed and they don't really have a lot of patience to explain every little detail because I'm a dork and I don't understand..

I've done HTML since 96 and I cannot figure this out at all.. don't assume I'm just being dramatic, I really feel like a total idiot because I don't understand.. I use mac and the beginner guide wouldn't work (it says pc) and I've tried to read guides online. AM I REALLY THIS DENSE?

Anyone who has a ton of patience, please help me. :( If you don't have patience, just ignore me because I don't want people getting angry.

Dumb question...

When you look at my LJ the way it is now, my header is scooted all the way to the left. How do i make it so that it's centered on top of my journal entries and component boxes...any help?

That portion of my codeCollapse )

I'm changing the layout for my journal, unhappyending. I have a few questions:
1) How do I get my title back? I know I took it off ages ago, but I don't know how to get it to come back.
2) Can I make my subject lines italic instead of bold? How would I change that?

Ok...I am really not trying to be an idiot but I have read your tutorial on Shrinking and Centering with optional header and 2-3 pages back of other people posts for the last 4 hours and I am a little bit confused. I can't tell what I need to copy/paste to acheive what I am trying to do. I have played around with it and have had no luck or changes within my journal page. I would like to put a header (804x354 371kb) on the top of my journal page (centered) and then shrink and center my journal size maybe 70-75%. Can you please provide me with the EXACT code so I can enter it into my new layer through the Advanced Customization area. I just don't know what to copy/paste. Please heelllllpppp me. Thank You so much in advance for your time =)
