Hi! I've successfully tweaked my journal's sidebar using info from the posts in this community (thanks everyone!) but I just have to tweak a couple more elements and I'm stumped on what to do now. I've browsed through the posts in the sidebar tag, but there was nothing as specific as mine. I did find bits of code here and there, but I'm not sure if they would work together, so I thought I'd post my questions:

1. How do I change the title names of the boxes?
2. How do I change the order of how they appear?

I mainly used the customtext code that somebody posted here, just in case that helps.

You should probably make your layer public and post the layer ID#, just so I can see what's going on. Add
layerinfo "source_viewable" = 1; to your theme layer. Its layer ID# can be found on Your Layers page. It would also help to know if you are using a "User" layer as well, because any settings you've made in the "Customize Journal" wizard will take priority.

I thought I did, it turns out I got the code to make it public wrong. I hope it works now. And yes, I'm using a user layer too, I think.

OK.... so, what's the layer number?

Theme is 8408344, user is 8408418. Sorry I didn't know I had to give you the numbers - never looked into public layers before.

No problem-- You did everything right, as far as I can tell. Changing the sidebar order is easy; Go to Customize Journal->Sidebar, and use the pull-down boxes to set the module order to what you want. Click "Save Changes" and check things are in the right place.
Changing the titles is a little more complicated, since I don't want to make you get rid of your user layer. You'll have to edit the prop_init() function, which I'll post in a separate comment.
