9 questions

  • Nov. 27th, 2006 at 12:12 AM
Forgive me if I overlooked what I'm asking some where in here, but I've looked through the tags and can't seem to find what I'm looking for and when I do there's no solution.

Nine things I need answered/helped with.

1.) I want to change the links on the bottom of each entry to images and to push them over to stop them from hugging the edge.

2.) To change the background color of the Sticky post to the color I'm using for it's header without having to change colors in Alpha-inner

3.) To get rid of the little bit of space above the subject line - SOLVED

4.) Change the sidebar links color without having to change the whole layouts links color - SOLVED

5.) Some how to put the date on the subject line

6.) Push the entry text over to stop it from hugging the edge - SOLVED

7.) To the change the lock, community and lj user pic to my own - SOLVED

8.) Place a border around the userpic in the profile on the sidebar - SOLVED

9.) Also to push the metadata over to stop it from hugging the edge - SOLVED

Sorry if I'm asking alot. I'm a flexible squares coder so everything is rather different to me in Expressions, but I wanted to give coding it a try nevertheless.

8) sounded familiar, so I looked and found this post. Most people want to remove the border that's already there, but I guess you could take the classes and modify them to get the border you want.
1) 2) and 5), if I understand you correctly, may not be possible without modifying the printing functions. And I'm not sure I understand 3).. =(

Thanks! You wouldn't know how to do that around the icons in each entry would you?

.user-icon is the class for userpics in entries and comments, and .user-pic is the class for the one in the sidebar.

If you want to style only the ones in the entries and not comments, you can specify it within any of the classes its in (.asset-content .user-icon for example)

I'm not sure I understand 3 either, but try applying a negative value to move up whatever to cover the space. If you can provide more details of what you want, I'll let you know which class to edit.

I've tried using .asset-content .user-icon and adding a border to it. It doesn't work though. I have to add
background-color: #FFFFFF
to even get anything to come up and then it's only a little.

The weird thing though is when I look at my source it says:
div class="user-icon" style="border: 1px none ; padding: 2px;" 

As for my 3rd question I'm guessing I can't get rid of it because that's where my next entry/prev entry link are when looking at a single entry.

Exactly, that's one of the things I can't explain about Expressive-- The styling for userpics in entries, which should be controlled by the .user-icon class, is instead overridden by the inline styling in the S2 code. Not to say you can't change it, just override the print_entry() function in your custom theme, if you're using one. (Tutorial here)

I know it's been driving me crazy. I finally gave up because I can't do theme's cuz I've got a plus account. Wish I had a paid.

Oh, and for #3, try fiddling with the sizes you have in the .asset-footer {} class. You have a height, a margin, and padding, which is going to make it look huge.
