I used this tutorial http://www.livejournal.com/community/component_help/67498.html
to create my layout, with components on both sides, but I realize that liabunny had to use some different codes in order for it to work. Suddenly my entries are showing up with a white background, and no matter what I do I cannot change it to black in my theme layer.
Also, how could I change the codes around in my user style to be able to put up the "random user pics". Can I do this?
This may be confusing.
Thanks for your help, I REALLY appreciate it.
