Some tweaking with CTE 4 // Video embedding

Hello again boys and gals!

Now I am one of those who used the "old" component tweaks (with a code five miles long no less) and I'll admit it was fun tweaking that thing to do exactly what you wanted it to...

But then we got those damn voice posts and everything went haywire.

I did the switch to CTE 4 but that code is built quite differently from the old hack, so there are still a couple of things I haven't been able to figure out....

  • <<< I want the friends-lock icon/private icon out of the entry header. I got it to appear in the entry itself, but it also appears in the header. SOLVED! >>>

  • The whole smilie code thing went ballistic in CtE 4. I have no idea why.

  • In my old code, if I was on the friendspage view, I had the username appear above the usericon (blatantly stolen from 'The Boxer' layout)
    I haven't been able to find a way to do so in CtE 4.

  • And then there is the whole YouTube thing. Whenever somebody embeds a YouTube vid, my journal goes all screwy á la voice posts. But if I use the Ct4 code, the videos don't show up AT ALL. Is there any way to have the videos there, without screwing up the entire layout?

And FIY, even while using the Ct4, I still have the lineheight problem, but I haven't really looked closer at options to fix that on my own, so that might be something easily taken care of.

Merry Xmas all!
