OK- so, I've got a cutom theme started, and managed to get the date to change a bit more how I'd like it.

I'm trying to figure out how to do a few things. I've tried a couple things I've found in this lovely community, but so far no luck.

1. changing links colors (all of them, at least all in the content, header, and all the comment/add to memories/etc. stuff)
2. changing overall colors- I'd like to change the color of the journal title, the sidebar, and the sidebar headers.
3. changing the text of "previous 20" "back to top" "next 20" navigation
4. changing it so entries which have no title do not default to the date being the title
5. changing font choices (I know on the web you can never ensure certain fonts, but I'd like to adjust the font roster if possible)
6. some sort of separator (horizontal rule, something) to separate title from entry. More needed on my friends page than anywhere else, but overall is fine.
7. Getting rid of the extra space that the entry title's div takes up

Got the color to change everywhere but the main body. Can't figure that one out.

Not to worry-- this is even easier.
Title to date:
h2.asset-name {
    margin-bottom: 0px;
Date to hr:
.asset-meta {
    margin-bottom: 0px;
.asset-header {
    margin-bottom: 0px;

hah! I wonder why it didn't work when I did it... I'd say maybe LJ doesn't work with em sizing, but it works fine for my icon borders. Strange- same css code as I'd tried, except you used px and I used em. odd, but oh well.

Now it's just figuring out a way to make "back to top" be in german, maybe figure out a way to modify the text for the non-titled entries (though that's probably down the way, when I figure out what I want it to say), and to figure out why the date has both a period AND comma after the day number, and I'll be set!

Ooh, and I need to figure out that gray bit at the bottom of the page...

To change "back to top" to "Bach to Topp" or whatever it is, override the RecentPage::print_body() function. That line is towards the bottom. Date/time formatting is in lang_posted_by_date_and_time(). Not sure about the gray bit. =)

yeah, I've got the date/time overridden already, and the only punctuation -I- am generating is the comma. It seems to be auto generating the period. Strange. Maybe I just ditch the comma and live with the period. oh well.

that gray bit is a bit of a puzzler isn't it?
