Wow, First Post!

I'm currently using the Weston Blue theme on a paid account. I tried to tweak the graphics and such by copying the theme specific stylesheet and hosting it on my server but it didn't seem to work. Is there a different way I'm supposed to go about this with the Expressive layouts?

Other things I'd like to do:

1.) Remove the tags and calendar from the sidebar.
2.) Add an additional place on the sidebar where I can include my own information
3.) Decrease the font size on the title.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Font size can be done with your stylesheet I believe.

For the other two, edit your user layer for the theme (I'm assuming you have one) and add the following:

set sidebar_primary = [
[ "userprofile", "Profile", "1", "1" ],
[ "links", "Links" ],
[ "archive", "Page Summary" ],
[ "syndicate", "Syndicate" ],
[ "poweredby" ],
[ "customtext", "Custom Text Title", "This is your free text space, put what you want here, cannot use HTML..." ]

You can change the order around, too, if you want. Save & compile.

I've tried to change text for a specfic part of my journal before, but I can't find what the id or class name is for it. Where can I find that information? So far, all I've been able to do is to make *all* the text smaller.

Thanks!!! :D

Also, is there a way that I can switch tags for memories on the side bar?

I haven't really figured out Expressive's CSS yet, as it has a lot of layering and class messiness.

Memories can't be shown because they aren't hooked into the style system at all.

I just realized that I can add memories to my links sidebar. I only want to link to certain categories anyways. :D

There's one thing I like _a lot_ - is the Web Developer extension for Firefox (if you use Firefox, of course). I can ask it to display the ID and class information that is in the page source, without going to page source and looking through it. Here's a screenshot of how I found the appropriate ID to use to change the font size of the title:

The information about your memories is not accesible in S2... You'd have to hardcode all the links and everything; and if you update/create new categories/delete old ones, you'd need to also modify your sidebar manually, if you wanted to do this.

I installed it last night. Thanks!! You've been a big help. :)

i know that .page-header2 applies to the subject lines. i can only make an educated guess and say .page-header1 is the page header. there are also .page-header3, .page-header4, and .page-header5, which you can experiment with to find out what they control.

note that the subject lines and the page header are all hyperlinks, so when you change the values for these items, remember to change the values for .page-header[1, 2, 3, 4, or 5] a as well.
