Hi! I've probably put in about 6 hours searching through Google and this comm's tags to tweak my journal. Thanks for all the great info here!

I am fairly pleased with the results with the following exceptions. It is very possible I am just so tired of working on this/searching that I missed something, so please feel free to direct me to entries/appropriate tags if available.

Background: Permanent account/Hills midnight theme/Custom stylesheet input

Here are my issues:

1) I want to change the color of my nav link dividers to white. I have tried so many different permutations of border-left: #ffffff...border-right etc. in so many different places and only got ONE of the dividers to change to white thus far. [SOLVED]

/* These next several lines of code-clusterfuck move the journal title to the top, and repositions title and nav links and dividers */

h2.asset-name, .pageheader2 .asset-name-hover { margin-left: 36px; }
h2.asset-name, .pageheader2 { margin-left: 36px; }

#header-content-inner {
margin: 335px 0px 0px -40px;

#header-text { min-height: 0; margin-top: 0px;}

ul.nav { position: absolute; top: 370px; padding-left: 150px; }

.nav li { border-left: none; padding: 0; font-size: small; }

.nav li a { font-weight: normal; }

.nav li.first { padding-left: 2; border-right: 1px solid #FFFFFF; }

/* nav link color */
#header .nav a {
color: #FFFFFF;

2) When I go to my Archives/Calendar page, the dandelion decoration image I am using is cut off. How can I stop the insanity? I believe the image size is 60x60, and I recall reading somewhere that's the size I should use. But clearly it's too big for pre-existing code on the Archives page. [SOLVED]


/* swap decoration between entries */
.asset-stream .asset-header {
background: transparent url(http://pics.livejournal.com/ladycoreopsis/pic/001qdpz0) no-repeat scroll 0 0;

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Yes! Brilliant. That did the trick. Thank you very much for your effort!

Now I'll have to add it into the Calendar's monthly views as well, but I'll search around for what that view is called on my own. ;)

You didn't say the month pages had the same problem - did you? Maybe you did. At any rate you can change the code to this:

.lj-view-archive .asset-header, .lj-view-month .asset-header {padding-bottom: 20px;}

And since the dandelion is over the subject line on the month pages (instead of next to it), you may want to add this as well (totally up to you):

.lj-view-month .asset-header {margin-left: -20px;}

Also, when you get a chance, you should view your journal in IE and tell me what you think - the header and links right below it are on one line in that browser. If you want, I can give you code to fix that.

No, I actually didn't say the month view had that problem in my post because I hadn't noticed it until afterward. So thank you for the additional code!

Oh gracious, I hadn't even started testing in other browsers yet. I've been working on my laptop, but this weekend I was going to take a peek from my Ubuntu Linux machine where I have several browsers installed.

But yes, I would sincerely appreciate the help with getting it to look nice in IE as well. Thank you very much!

OK, the IE thing...I can't get it after all, sorry. I tried (I put your CSS up at my test journal after I added in some IE hacks I thought might help) but it seems I just messed things up more (I had to copy in all the style sheets because my test journal is a Basic account which doesn't allow me to use the Hills theme, so maybe that had something to do with it, I don't know). If you make another top level post here with the IE issues maybe someone else will help you, but I'm afraid I can't.
