Hi, I'm having some Expressive trouble/questions that I couldn't find solved in the tags, so hopefully someone can help me. :) (this layout help would be used for the Plus account I'm posting in.)

Solved! 1. For my sidebar calendar, I would like the days with posts to have a full color background. Currently I have the coding set so that all of the calendar links have a color background, but it's not wide enough and I don't want the Calendar month and archive links to have a background as well. Is there a way to narrow it down? In the Flexible Squares layout it would be the .sbarcalendarposts code, but I don't know how that translates to Expressive.

2. Is there a way to move the sidebar advertisements so that they're at the bottom of the sidebar? Right now it seems there's a banner ad between my profile and calendar sections (Firefox blocks them though, yay), and another one at the end after page summary, but I would rather both ads be at the end.

No can do on basic/plus 3. This has been answered for the Paid accounts, but not for the basic/plus accounts. Is there CSS so that the sidebar profile/default user pic can link to the All Userpics page like in Flexible Squares? Or is that not possible without using a layer theme/Paid account?

Thank you!

full background color for days with posts
Delete your ".calendar-widget a" CSS settings. Insert this lines instead:

.calendar-widget table
{margin:auto; width:100%}

.calendar-widget td, .calendar-widget th
{border:1px solid #eee; padding:2px 0; text-align:center; vertical-align:middle}

.calendar-widget td a
{display:block; margin:-2px; padding:2px 0; background-color:#97de2c}

.calendar-widget td[colspan*="7"] a
{background-color:transparent; margin:0}

The first code line makes the whole calendar table wider; it can be less than 100%. You can try it out.

The second code line arranges the cells a bit more generous and consistent. "th" stands for the weekdays row.

The third code line is for all all links in a table cell (=month name and all days with a post). "display:block" enables full background color, "padding:2px 0" gives the links the same space like all cells have. "margin:-2px 0" deletes the - now redundant - space of each cell with a link. It makes the calendar table cells evenly spread.

The forth code line changes the background for the month name back to transparent and suspends the margin deletion of the third line.

Good luck!

The answer to #3 is that there's no way to do that without a theme layer.
