Starting over?

Let me ask you guys some questions.

I customized my journal based on the first tutorials here, way back when component was new, and so I'm not able to use most of the newer tutorials, because they seem to be based on constantly evolving code (new variables, different functions, etc.) and they conflict/duplicate some of the coding I already have. I also have trouble integrating multiple tutorials for the same reason - new ones aren't compatible with older ones. I suspect that is because the same people who post the tutorials are constantly tweaking their own code to make it cleaner/more efficient, but unless I follow every post and every change, there's no way for me to do the same.

1) Is there an obvious chronology, where I can work my way through from the old coding to the new coding?

2) Do you ever go back and update old tutorials, or at least indicate which ones are obsolete or incompatible?

3) Should I just start over from scratch, and if so, how do I know what works together and what doesn't?

Thanks.

How can I change the colour of the links in my nav bar? I changed the colour in the main customization options but it's still a dark colour (the colour of my entry links).

Getting rid of scrollbars in entries

I've checked all the tutorials, and I'm pretty sure this hasn't been answered anywhere. If it has, I've really sorry, I honestly didn't see it.

I just put up a new layout and got it the way I want it, but there are scrollbars in the entries, which makes it difficult when showing pictures and larger things behinds cuts. I would really like to be able to get rid of them but the only thing I've been able to find about scrollbars is how to put them in or how to change the colors of them, but I just want them out.

Would anyone be kind enough to show me how to do this?
