Removing all Header Navigation Links

  • Mar. 16th, 2008 at 10:55 PM
I need to make this blog link back to our website -- with no other links visible in the header area. (Most visitors will be unfamiliar with LiveJournal, coming directly from our website -- or from another site that links the blog as a part of our website.)

Anyway, I'm assuming this can be done with Advanced Customization -- yes? (No, I don't really get Advanced Customization, but I'm pretty good at following instructions!)

I'm currently live with the blog -- so I'm really anxious to make these tweaks.

Any and all help is GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

ETA: Actually, I also need to take out the 'Add to Memories,' 'Tell a Friend' and 'Track This' links...

This will hide the header navigation:

ul.nav {
display : none;
}

This will hide the footer navigation:

.asset-meta {
display : none;
}

If you want to just remove the memories, track and tell a friend, it will require heavy customisation. Check out the Beginner's Guide for tips.

Thanks! (So much!)

The CSS was a simple fix for the header navigation -- all done.

I've tried changing the footer navigation using Advanced Customization, which you can check out here:
http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/layerbrowse.bml?id=11003607

I'm clearly not doing it correctly, though, as I still have the 'Add to Memories,' 'Tell a Friend' and 'Track This' links displaying. (Frankly, I suck at the advanced stuff -- but I can follow instructions fairly well, as a rule...)

I want people to be able to Comment, Read Comments and Link these entries. (We already went through our Centennial year with what was called a 'blog' -- but didn't have any of these options... grr...)

Any and all help is truly appreciated! Thanks, again.

If you intended for this change to be in the rosefestblog journal, it's definitely working correctly. You could just be viewing a cached version of the page.

I didn't realize there was another step, which is to select your own Layer and implement it. So now I'm good to go!

(I also didn't realize you had to do the Layer stuff first -- then make any other changes, including the CSS. I guess you learn something new every day!)

Anyway, it's exactly the way I wanted/needed it now, so I'm happy as a clam!

Thanks again for your help! You ROCK!

Hm, I checked the beginner's guides a couple times but still couldn't find how to remove "Add to Memories," "Tell a Friend" etc. I can be pretty oblivious though...

What CSS did you paste in to do this? I'd to remove the same exact stuff you wanted to, plus "Edit Entry."

Thanks for your help!

Hi--i'm kind of new to CSS. How do I add links to the nav bar at the top of the page? For example, if I wanted to link to a photo album at the top of the page...

thanks!

Adding links to the nav bar is not something you can do with CSS. Check out the tutorial mentioned by av8rmike.

There's a whole tutorial on this kind of thing here. Use redwolf's CSS for the header nav links.
