Scrolling issue again

The good news is that I'm making progress! I figured out where to put the div code to make the area containing the entries scroll instead of making each entry scroll. Here's the code:

if ($p.view == "recent" or $p.view == "friends" or $p.view == "day" or $p.view == "reply") {

"""<div id="Layer1" style="position:relative; height:390px; z-index:1; overflow: auto;">""";

    $p->print_body(); """</div>""";}

else {

    $p->print_body(); }


That should replace $p->print_body(); in the function print_my_entries part.

Take a look at my journal to see what I mean. If you'll note, it's only on certain views. That's because it only works on certain views, wherein lies the problem. I'd like to make my calendar page and my entry page do it as well, but I don't know how. Can someone help me with the placing of the code? If you need it, I can supply the full function print_my_entries section. Just let me know. It's just so irritating being this ridiculously close to exactly how I want my journal to look.

Ok, so I've searched around the tutorials, memories, and looked back a couple pages of entries, but couldn't find anything to help answer my question. And that is probably because it is so simple. I'm in the process of making a layout, but I'm just trying to get the little things done first. When I add links to my Link Component Box, I can't get the link to e-mail me in there, correctly. Whenever I add the URL mailto: blah blah blah, it takes out the mailto: part and adds http:// which just brings you to yahoo.com. How do I fix this? Thank you.

Partial Locking

hi again!

asked a question regarding partial locking before - eg just locking up pics while keeping the rest of the entry public.

from the help/advice of some of you guys, I've uploaded pics into my LJ Scrapbook, set my desired security settings, and then posted the pics in my journal instead.

it works! :)

one thing though, the part where the pic is supposed to be shows up as a broken image icon.

eg here. http://www.livejournal.com/users/sepps2/76075.html

is there any way to get about this, and let another pic (say, a default cover pic for all my locked images) appear in place of it instead? :)

thanks in advance!

Okie dokie. Questions for you:

I'm using panda_cookie's wonderful-gut layer with tutorials. It's worked like a charm and i love it. However....How do i manage to do the date/time format with it? And how do i create more boxes like the one i have for what i'm listening to? I was able to put in the Wikipedia search box in and it's beautiful, as is the clock. I'd also like to know how to work in components on both sides. If i have to completely redo my code, that's ok, but i'd rather not.

EDIT: Kunzite pointed out that it was source viewable....thankie....

argh! Scrollbox help!

I have a question. I have been trying to add scrollboxes to my entries, which is in panda's tut included in this post earlier, but i dont get this part ->



print $content_top;

I don't understand that part, and i think thats whats giving me all the problems. Can someone help me?

Whenever i add a new part to my layer that contains all my customizations, i add the print_entry function to each new code part if it calls for that, so i guess thats why im confused. But then it says replace the code, what do i replace and where do i find it?

Edit: Ok i have two layers, one that i use for testing my codes out and the other that once the codes work i add it to my custom layer. So i got it to work on my test layer, which if you take a look you can see. The scroll bars are smaller than the entries because i have the scroll set for the shrink & center code, which i have in my custom layer. Now when i add the scroll code to my custom layer which contains the s&c code, the scrollbars aren't showing up, so my layout won't shrink. So what am i doing wrong? Here is the code i have in my test layer, (http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/layersource.bml?id=4358452&fmt=html).

Edit 2: Okay i added the S&C code to my test layer with the scrollbox and it works, so whats the problem?
