Sorry me again. But I hope you can help me out more easily.

First

If I reply from my mail inbox the page I get looks like that 'Reply To Page'
When I reply directly in my journal it looks like this 'Direct Reply'

The background behind the comment links is missing when you open the first link.  It seems there is no class in my CSS which belongs to those .asset-meta-comments on that first page I linked to. Could you tell me what the class is called? I hope you understand what I mean.

I checked the breakdown by carriep63  but that page is not listed I didn't see it at least.

Second

Since the host I uploaded the stylesheet isn't as reliable I wanted to create a theme layer.
I did read your instructions here at s2expressive and used this code below. But I must do something wrong because it saves and compiles and all I get is a white page. Any ideas what I do wrong?

layerinfo "type" = "theme";
layerinfo "name" = "Edinburgh";
set base_theme = "__none";
set theme_designer = "";
set theme_designer_type = "";

set custom_css = """
/* Your Custom CSS goes between the quotes */
-->my css code<--
""";

Hmmm.. it's not just your layout. It looks like when a comment is printed as an entry on the Reply Page, the asset-meta class isn't created like it is when an entry is atop the page. I don't have any idea how to suggest correcting that, though. If I get some time, I'll look into it, but it'll require submitting some kind of bug report.

What's the ID number of the theme layer you're trying to use?

Thanks for replying :)

Someone I asked meant it might be easier to fix this with a theme layer?!

I do net yet have a theme layer. I try to make an own since that layout is too much for the normal CSS Box in customizing I use a external CSS file at the moment.

All I have is this:

ID Number 15976402

As you see nothing at all. Each time when I try to add the CSS it goes on strike and nothing happens but a white page and nothing's saved :( It might be too much stuff?! I have no idea.

O_o Of course the page is blank. You don't actually have your custom CSS in between the quotes, just a comment.

lol yeah I know that's what I try to say.
OK...I open that theme layer and copy my css from the stylesheet to paste it between those """___CSS GOES HERE___""" Quotes. Then I do hit save & compile and wait. After a minute or so the browser tab stops loading and leaves a blank page INSTEAD of saying 'compiled with no errors'. It just don't want to save my CSS in that theme layer. And I do wonder why it won't save my CSS to that layer.
Did you get me? Hard to explain in a different language. Where's my mistake?

You may borrow me your desk soon.

OK, just starting with the most likely problem first. ;) The problem with excessively long strings exists whether you put that long string (i.e. your entire stylesheet) into the Custom CSS box or into one string (a pair of """ quotes) in the S2 compiler.

I suspect what you'll have to do instead is create a Page::print_custom_head() function and make it look something like this:
function Page::print_custom_head() {
"""
<style type="text/css">
... Many lines of CSS ...
</style>
""";
"""
<style type="text/css">
... Many more lines of CSS ...
</style>
""";
... etc. ...
}
The important thing is that you have more than one set of """/"""; blocks. Makes sense?

It worked out :) I do have a theme layer now which you can see (if you check the ID number) -bounces- THANK YOU!!!

I know I do have such pretty long picture URLs -sigh- but I usually shorten them at www.tinyurl.com when I do not need to make changes any more - I don't have to see the picture names then.

Hmm I thought if it might be possible to add a background similar like calophi did it here with the calendar page By changing the class or so? But that means I'd have to know the class first ;)

Maybe I'm just being dense, but I have no idea what you're asking for here... ?

Nah not dense. It's just hard to explain something when you don't even know it in your own language lol

I asked carriep63 if she has an idea since she did the breakdown. She told me this:

.lj-view-reply .asset-footer{
background:#77512D;
height:20px;
margin-top:-15px;
}

and it worked. You may know better what I mean with reading the class.

I knew you said you were busy at the moment so I didn't want you to waste time on something unimportant like that. You did help me a lot anyway and it's appreciated! I managed to put my css code in a Theme layer, thanks to you your idea and that's so much better.
