I was hoping there would be a way I could make my header image linkable so that someone could click on it and go back to my webpage (http://blog.cherryteresa.com).

OR If I really get what I'm hoping for, I'd like to be able to make custom links that go on top of the header. Basically, if you look at http://blog.cherryteresa.com and see what the header looks like... then compare it to http://cherry-teresa.livejournal.com ... I would like the livejournal.com pages to look like the blog.cherryteresa.com page, if that is possible. It doesn't even have to look exactly like it, as long as I can add a link so the person can go back to my page, that would be awesome.

I
'm trying to make my journal better to navigate around. My lj is embedded in my personal domain and so if someone clicks on any LJ links (like comments, calendar, previous entries, etc.), it takes them away from my dot com page to lj's site. When that happens, I want the user to know how to get back to my site easily.

I'm a paid user using Expressive: Unstyled.

Thank you!

The only way to add links to the others in the header text is through a theme layer. The tutorial for making a theme layer is here, and I wrote up a reply for adding links here.

Hey Mike, thank you. I saw that before but I was thinking there might be another way. Or a way to link the header image itself. So I'm going to use the way you just mentioned.

I have been trying that and I almost have it. For some reason, it has a blue butterfly background instead of just a plain white background. I'm sure I'm overlooking something really small but I've been trying since yesterday and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Here's what it looks like so far: http://cherry-teresa.livejournal.com/?s2id=19063155

I'm using these:
User Layer - http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/layerbrowse.bml?id=13793841
Theme Layer - http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/layersource.bml?id=13794752

I'm using Layout: Expressive. Should I be using Other?

Thanks.

Edit: Woops, I just realized I didn't make those viewable to others. I'm going to make 'em public now (well, in a minute, I gotta read how).

Edit again: Okay, it's viewable now. Sorry for that.

I think I got it now. For some reason, it was showing the blue boom back ground stuff before and all the links colors and everything. I just had to add some stuff to the top part of the Theme.

[layerinfo "type" = "theme";
layerinfo "name" = "Unstyled";] - minus these parts


layerinfo "redist_uniq" = "voxhtml/__none";
set base_theme = "__none";
set theme_bgcolor = "";
set theme_fgcolor = "";
set theme_bordercolor = "";
set theme_linkcolor = "";
set theme_designer = "";
set theme_designer_type = "";

Which I found looking at the unstyled Theme layer in the Public Layers section.

So I'm fillin in the "" parts now.

Thanks for all your help.

I also live in Baltimore and I see we are both friends with thehipgoddess, so it's possible you and I may have seen each other around!

Looks like you got it working... ?
I'm not following on why you put all those line breaks in there, though.
