First I just want to say that this community has been extremely helpful and I've been able to fix a bunch of things on my own. Thank you av8rmike!

I have a few questions that I wasn't able to find any answers to.

1. I would like the title of my journal to be different than what I have in my profile. I know under customize you can change it, but I'd like the title and subtitle in my profile to remain as they are. I just want to change the title on my actual journal page. Is there a code I can put in my theme layer to change it?

2. Is there a way I can completely get rid of the navigation strip when other people look at my journal? I did uncheck the always show navigation strip boxes under customize, but I've been to my journal on another name and it still comes up.

3. The links under my journal entries (comment, add to memories, etc.) seem fine when there are no comments, but when someone does comment the spacing gets all messed up. In the past I did get rid of the track this link, but I don't really care either way about some of the other ones. I just don't want those lines to be over the text. Is there any code that will fix this or will I just have to live with it?

EDIT: Thank you av8rmike and anarano for all the help! :D

So, I get to help you again, is that it? =) Although, I'm a little confused because it looks like you tried to insert some layer code (the "layerinfo" and "set" lines) into your custom CSS?

For #1, look in the Page::lay_print_header_links() function for the lines containing $.global_title and $.global_subtitle, then change those variables to whatever new text you want for the titles. For example:

print safe """<a href="$base_url">New Title Here</a>""";

#2, Change this line in your CSS:

#lj_controlstrip_search form { display: none; }
#lj_controlstrip { display: none; }
html body { padding-top: 0;}

#3 must look different when you're logged in, because looking at your journal page, I don't see the links overlapping. Maybe you could post a screenshot somewhere?

Ha ha, yes. Aren't you lucky? Believe me, I need all the help I can get! If you're confused, how do you think I feel? lol That was just what I copied from my theme layer. If there's some CSS in there... well, I just don't know. ;)

But anyway, you already helped me with #1 and #2. I'm so happy. I hated that navigation strip! Thanks very much!!

#3 - My linkbar looks perfect when I'm not logged in at all.

When I'm logged in on my name, it looks like this:

This doesn't really bother me though because it's only me seeing it.

When I'm logged in on my second name that I don't really use, it looks like this:

This annoys me since other people see it. The links don't overlap, but it bothers me that the lines cover the words. lol I know, I'm a perfectionist. It's really not a big deal, but if it can be fixed, I'd love to know how.

Thanks again for helping me with 1 and 2!

Search for this line in your CSS:

li.asset-meta-comments {display: inline; margin-right: 0.8em; padding-right: 0.8em; border-right: 1px solid #cccccc;}

Reduce the bold numbers (e.g. 0.3em or 4px).

So long,

Re: Linkbar
Hi Ana! Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I've been away for the past few days.

I did what you said and it worked. Thank you!

I hope you don't mind if I bother you one more time. I'm just wondering how to get rid of the extra space before link and the last | after link that isn't necessary.

Here's what I mean:

Thank you both again for all of your help. I REALLY appreciate it! :)

Re: Linkbar
Hi again,

the line above styles the list items and each list item contains a link. You had disabled some of the links, but the related list items remain. You have to treat the list items and their links separately:

li.asset-meta-comments {display: inline}

li.asset-meta-comments a {margin-right: 0.Xem; padding-right: 0.Xem; border-right: 1px solid #cccccc;}

By the way: You can win a bit more place for the linkbar with this addition (it puts the linkbar to the left):

ul.asset-meta-list {list-style-type: none; text-align: left; text-transform: lowercase ;padding:0}

Good luck!

edits: sorry, the HTML didn't work the way I wanted it.

Re: Linkbar
Oh, I didn't realize you had to do it separately. Your solution worked perfectly! Thank you!

In an old post I found out how to get rid of the line separators so that solved that problem.

I would love my linkbar to align left. I tried what you said, but it didn't change anything. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I edited my entry to include my updated CSS.

Hopefully this will be the last time I bother you. Thanks very much!

Re: Linkbar
No problem, you're welcome.

It looks fine (=left) on my browser (Firefox); I guess you are using Internet Explorer, aren't you?

Try adding a "margin:0" to "ul.asset-meta-list". Keep "padding:0", too, because the margin code will do nothing in Firefox.

BTW: Insted of "margin:0; padding:0" you can insert "margin-left:0; padding-left:0". It's closer to the original layout.

Re: Linkbar
You're right, I am using Internet Explorer. I used your margin-left, padding-left solution. Thank you so much for the fix! :)
