title strings per page

hmmm...where would i find the various header definitions for hte various pages,
the stuff that goes into user title/user sub title? and for what the different pages are?

i want to redefine the titles for different pages -- i don't always want the subject line to be used for the "user title" when clicking on the comments page, for example. so i'm hunting around for how you know what page you're on, and where it's assigning the values of the user title and user sub title. i have the feeling i get to reproduce a number of different page layouts in my theme to accomplish this...

--BEG, who did start out just wanting to add a few css defn's...??!!?!

global vars?

Ooh! My very first error in compiling layers!!

Compile error: line 25, column 1: Can't set non-existent property 'cleargif'

Wow, it's fun programming in a language in midstream when I don't know what else there is, what language it is, what the syntax is....whee!

Using a Custom Image in Moods

I am feeling very stupid because I know the answer is around here somewhere and I just can't find it.  I'm guessing that's because I'm using the wrong term/word/something.

I want to use my own personal little images for the mood setting rather than the ones that come prepackaged here at LJ.

Could someone please shove me in the right direction?

Skins help

I'm sure this has to do with cookies somehow and I did leave a comment on the cookie tutorial as well as the skins tutorial, but no one replied so they either don't know or haven't bothered to reply yet.

I would love to be able to have the ability to switch from a 3 column component layout to a 2 column component layout and not have a problem with the switching back to the default skin.

I have the skin thing down, just want to make sure that they stay the way that they are set. For example if I use the blog layout I have now and someone wants to use a 2 column layout (where the component is one of the columns), it will switch back to the default when they comment and after they comment. It won't stick, which makes me think that cookies are needed. I have no idea how to do it, but I'm sure it can be done somehow.

Is this possible? If so, please let me know in the simplest terms possible, please. (Like I'm 10 years old, thanks.) Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Corner Colors Problem

This worked perfectly before, but I tried to use the layout of my LJ on a community layout and when I clicked to compile it had a problem with the address of the image for the corner colors. It works fine on my personal LJ, so why not the community LJ I'm trying to use it on (eclecticicons)?

Here is the error it's giving me:

Compile error: line 679, column 25: Unknown local variable $corner_color
S2::NodeVarRef, S2/, 178
S2::NodeVarRef, S2/, 151
S2::NodeTerm, S2/, 162

S2::NodeSum, S2/, 64

S2::NodeStmtBlock, S2/, 101
S2::NodeFunction, S2/, 230
S2::Checker, S2/, 339
S2::Compiler, S2/, 34

Here is the section of code it's referring to:

678: <tr>
679: <td valign="top" rowspan="3" colspan="3" width="5"><img src="$corner_color" width="5" height="5" alt="" border="0" /></td>
680: <td class="dkLine"><img src="" width="1" height="1" alt="" border="0" /></td>

NOTE: Line 679 is red.

Is anyone else having this problem? How can I fix it?

Not something that has to do with component exclusively, but this is something I figured out on my own & thought I'd pass it along here.

Most browsers will return an error page when you click on a multiple word tag (ex: book fun, mod post, back to school). In order to keep that from happening, you will need to change those tags.

Now, before you go off screaming about having to go through all your entries to find the multiple word tags, LiveJournal has made it easy to edit them. Click here to manage your tags.

Since most browsers thing a space between words means AND (example: books+fun, back+to+school, etc), you will need to put an underscore (_) between all the words you want to keep seperate (ex: book_fun, back_to_school).

I know tags are a great way to keep your entries organized, so just remember to use the _ when you're using multiple words.
