Previous Entry | Next Entry

Hi, I managed to make almost everything I wanted while changing my new LJ thanks to this comm. I was left only with these things.

1. Entries - Header ornament: I would like to move the entry header text a bit to the right and adding this picture before it without moving of the black background behind the entry header. SOLVED!

2. Links - Color:
I changed the color of all the links I wanted except the ones that are displayed at the top, when anybody who's logged in is viewing my LJ (here's a picture for what links I mean). SOLVED!

3. The first entry on my "Friends" page
is lower than the first entry on my "Recent" page. I would like to push the "Friends" entries at the same height as are the entries on my "Recent" page. SOLVED!

2) Go here Scroll down to Navigation Strip, choose Custom Colors.

But I want the links to change color (to #FFFFFF) when you hover over them too.

I don't think they'll change colour on hover, for anyone. But I can stand to be proved wrong.
Mar. 20th, 2012 07:53 pm (UTC)
Well they do on my main account so there has to be a way...we just don't know it yet :D
Mar. 20th, 2012 07:59 pm (UTC)
All they do on mine is go a tiny bit bolder. Now I'm just jealous.
Mar. 20th, 2012 08:01 pm (UTC)
Nope, yours change color too, it just seems they get bolder, but they actually change to a darker color :D

Add to Custom CSS

/* ==lj nav link color== */
#lj_controlstrip_new a:hover {
color : #ffffff !important;
Mar. 20th, 2012 09:13 pm (UTC)
Didn't work, still red :(
Mar. 20th, 2012 09:28 pm (UTC)
Sorry that's my best shot; it worked on mine.

ETA. Did you remember to close the bracket? I just noticed it is in hiding in my last comment.

It's OK, I really appreciate you trying :D
Mar. 20th, 2012 09:32 pm (UTC)
I did...still red though

1) To add a title ornament, change your .asset-name section from this:
.asset-name { font-size: 30px; padding: 0 0 3px 5px;

to something like this:
.asset-name { font-size: 30px; padding: 0 0 3px 25px;
background-image: url(http://i1267.photobucket.com/albums/jj556/DiGiTics/024c39dd.png);

2) If you're talking about the links in the navigation strip, there isn't a setting in the Customize area for hover color. You'll have to do it this way:
.w-cs A:hover { color: #FFFFFF; }

As for 3) I'm not seeing any height difference between the first entries on your Recent page vs. your Friends page, unless there's something weird in a non-public entry?

1. this one works, thank you :D
But the pic is repeating itself all over the subject line and even the first one (since I only want to have one piece in there) isn't in the right position :(

2. didn't work, it's still red even when I hover over it

3. nope, checked it while logged in on my main account (that isn't friended) and there's still a difference (only a few pixels, but they are there)

Change .asset-name to look like this:

.asset-name { font-size: 30px; padding: 0 0 3px 42px;
background-image: url(http://i1267.photobucket.com/albums/jj556/DiGiTics/024c39dd.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-color: #060708;

One problem I noticed is that you have two "body" groups, one at the top and one at the bottom of your stylesheet, and the second one is missing the closing } brace. Thus, anything you enter after it won't work properly, so you'll need to remove one of the two.

For #3, the extra space is coming from this line in your stylesheet like this:
.stream-header { margin: 5px 0 0; }
You could just take that out, I guess; I'm not sure what it's supposed to do.

With the nav strip, it looks like the color values you're entering on the Customize Journal Style page are overriding anything you might put into the stylesheet. Try removing the entry for link color and then seeing if the CSS I gave you above works.

That one got rid of the ornament completely, got rid of the padding around the text too, made it non-bold and colored it red O.o

Links changing to white when hover over them works now! :D

Oops, sorry, that was me trying to put a background pic on my LJ, that's fixed now.

.stream-header { margin: 5px 0 0; }
this is there because there was some extra space to begin with and it moved the first entry closer to the header.
I just don't know why the first entry on my f-page isn't at the same height as the first entry on my recent-page :/

I just don't know why the first entry on my f-page isn't at the same height as the first entry on my recent-page :/

The stream-header div is only printed when the "previous/next" links are printed. There aren't enough entries on your Recent page to necessitate them, so you don't see the 5px of margin there. Once you write more entries, then you'll see the margin on both pages. ;)
You could just change it to:
.stream-header { margin: 0; }

As for the title ornament, could you put back the code I gave you, so I can see what might be wrong?
Mar. 21st, 2012 08:44 pm (UTC)

Heh, that's weird, NOW it looks normal (no red links and such....reeeally weird O.o)...and you were right about the gap :D You're a smart cookie!

Now it's almost perfect, can we move the rose a few px to the right and down? And the text a few px to the right?

Hey, sorry for the delay. I was having computer problems.
To move the image around, add this line to .asset-name:

background-position: 3px 3px;

Increasing the first number will move the rose to the right; the second number moves it down. Then, to move the text to the right, increase the 42px of padding in .asset-name.

Hey, sorry for the delay. I was having computer problems.
That's cool, hope everything's OK :)

Oh, nice, thank you :D
