Bug Fix: Customising Text

  • Sep. 3rd, 2006 at 12:54 AM
To the writers of the original layout code...

Almost all the text for the layout is customisable through the generic Edit Journal Style GUI interface (such as text for comments, etc.) except the text for the Permalink at the bottom of entries and the Reply, Parent and Thread text on comments. These can be made to appear along with the other customisations by putting:

property use text_permalink ;
property use text_comment_reply ;
property use text_comment_parent ;
property use text_comment_thread ;

into propgroup text { }.

I just started playing around with expressive. I LOVEEEE your layout. You ever going to make your layers public? :)

I don't know if I could (or indeed how to) - there's a lot of hacking and tweaking going on! I had to make some new css classes and I've used a lot of custom css with a base of Urban Green.

But if you want to know about anything I've done, just ask. I can send you any code or css too if you want.

[It's also not perfect yet - I can't think of a way to get rid of the green bit at the bottom of the page yet and I can't find a satisfactory way to change the colour of the links at the bottom of entries.]

Well I'm really curious as to how you applied a background image for the sidebar. This one I mean http://pics.livejournal.com/nimoloth/pic/000954wa
oh and how did you get the header image to be behind your links so that you can have the image as well as the links ontop of the image?

Hmm I'm sure I'll have more questions as I begin to play with expressive more next weekend when I have a free moment.

For info on the sidebar images, see my next post in the community - I've explained it there. The header image is changed with:

#header-inner {
background-image: url("http://pics.livejournal.com/nimoloth/pic/000901k0");
position: relative ;
height: 201px;

This is automatically behind the header text because it's a lower level div element. You don't necessarily need to specify the height, but I was having positioning issues with mine *g*.
