Kind of a weird question, but here goes. As far as I can tell, the "Use community userpics instead of poster's userpic" option in the customize journal screen doesn't seem to do anything for communities. I want to take a community that I maintain and make it so that each entry on the main page all has a common picture-- it can be the community's main icon, but any 100x100 picture would also work. My community is using Generator, for what it's worth. Does anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks!

Need to alter background of my post, but user-submitted CSS is now killed in posts! [21 Jan 2012|09:24pm]

Hi everyone,

for quite a while I used to make my posts on black background using the following CSS (I omit tag brackets:

div style="background: rgb(0, 0, 0) none repeat scroll 0% 50%; -moz-background-clip: -moz-initial; -moz-background-origin: -moz-initial; -moz-background-inline-policy: -moz-initial; color: rgb(255, 255, 255); "
with a corresponding closing DIV.

Few days ago, this stopped working in my style. Basically, LJ started to rip off any CSS included in such a way, so in page code I do not have anymore these styles at all.

Any idea how I can adjust that or otherwise make background of my posted entry black?

Unpainted entry page [24 Oct 2011|04:25am]

Hi, I'm working on a community house_where, and I want not only a journal page to be in my particular style, but comment pages for particular entries, like this one, to be in my community style (not the LJ "generic" style) too. I know that's possible (e. g. in this post in other community), but I couldn't find a way to implement it in my community. What am I doing wrong? Thank you!

Odd boxes [14 Sep 2011|04:05pm]

Hi, I'm working on a community with ikarusphoenix, and we've run into a bit of a snag.

Behind the posts on the page are thin, white borders that change size depending on the browser used, how far the page is zoomed in or out, etc.

The community is here. Any ideas?

We really appreciate it, thanks!

So, I've just updated my journal layout Here. Now, if you look in the top bar - where there are links to my user info etc - there's a link to my fic journal.

How do I get rid of that link? I've tried looking for a way but I can't seem to find one anywhere.

Journal Help! [24 May 2011|01:01pm]

[ mood | confused ]

 *If I'm not supposed to post this, please let me know*

So lastnight I changed my journal layout and played around with the CSS to customize it. Throughout the process, I kept checking how my journal looked in a new tab, and everything was going pretty smoothly (for someone new to CSS :P). I wanted to see how the journal looked to non-friends and those not logged in, so I logged out of my account and went back to my journal.

And what the heck, my old layout came up!


When the "Recent Entries" page shows up, my old layout does too but only the header--everything else is gone. But when you click on my "Friends Page" the new layout comes up; when I'm logged in, though, there is no trace of the old layout whatsoever. I've let LJ sit overnight and checked it again this morning, but it's still the same. I have no idea how to fix this or what in the world is going on, so could someone please help me?

(and while we're at it, does anyone know how to customize the menu bar so instead of just "Recent Entries"/"User Info"/etc. it says something I put? Also, how do I keep the comments page in the journal with the same layout instead of it's own different page?)


(as you can see I', a total newbie at CSS >.<)

This is the style I'm using: www.createblog.com/livejournal-layouts/36578-romance-is-dead./

Here's the CSS code if you need itCollapse )

LJ "style=mine" Problem [23 Apr 2011|05:08pm]


I don't know if my problem fits the purpose of this group, but I'm hoping someone will have answer:

My main question: I bookmarked "javascript:location.search+=(location.search?'&':'?')
+'style=mine'" so that I could see a page in my style. It didn't work the way I wanted it to, though, so I deleted it. Problem is, all my pages are still automatically going to ?style=mine. How do I get this to stop? I deleted all the LJ cookies, but it won't go away.

Does anyone know which cookie was specifically added by the bookmark?

My bigger problem, which is why I bothered with trying the bookmarklet, is that the greasemonkey My_Livejournal_Style isn't working for me anymore. I only use it to read the comments pages of OhNoTheyDidn't, so I can't tell if it's an issue specifically related to this community. Does anyone have any other ideas about how to make only the ONTD comment pages (and not the main page or other groups) show up in my style?

I don't have a paid account, btw, so I can't change all this from my settings.

I don't think this is possible, but... [15 Feb 2011|02:38pm]

I'm using a simple php script to pull random entry header images from a directory.


It works fine... for a single entry. When I have more than one entry on the page, the browser caches the first image it pulls and my "random" entry headers are all the same. I had planned to get around this by appending a random string of numbers (or I guess a timestamp would work) to the end of the image.


But durrrr, I forgot that LJ would disable any scripting! That just breaks the css. This is kind of a long shot, but does anyone know of a way to prevent the browser from caching an image... without using any prohibited scripts? I kinda doubt that it can be done, but I figured I'd try.

Default entry view [31 Dec 2010|10:51pm]

Hi all! I wonder if you could help me.

I want to be able to convert any Livejournal link or entry to the default view (so that it looks like this), but without disabling customized comments pages for my journal.

In other words, I know that one can append ?style=light or ?style=mine to a Livejournal link to modify how it looks; is anything similar to force pages to revert to the default style?

plain/white entries please. [07 Dec 2010|03:53pm]

I have a Plus account. (This is for a community, though, if that matters.)

I want to have the journal entry be basic and white and bland when it's clicked as opposed to remaining in the journal style.

I want it to look this this, in other words.

flexible squares - header problem [26 Nov 2010|08:42am]

Okay, I am using a premade layout by mintyapple this one, if it matters

And like every other layout I've ever used, I usually mess with it a little to try and make it "uniquely mine" It looks like practicecherry - this right now. But I'm having a problem with the header-

Here is what I want- I want the header to scroll with the content because I want it on the left side and it does cut off. I don't think it looks appealing because of the fact the image cuts off on the guys thighs and when it's just hanging there because it doesn't scroll, it doesn't look good.

Now... I got it to scroll... that's cool. BUT! Now that it scrolls, it goes underneath my background image. =/ Is there anyway to fix that? If not, I have another idea of how I want the layout to look. But if I could fix this, it would be greatly appreciated! If you need my edited css so you can exam it and compare it to the original, let me know. I'm just trying to get this fixed.

How to get ride of the 'frame"? [24 Oct 2010|12:13am]

I'm not really familiar with the Custom CCS, but after hours I could finally get a decent layout!;) BUTI have at tiny little problem. I worked with Opera brower and when checking my LJ entries it was fine, but as soon as I used IE or Firefox, the images of my LJ entries were framed! (In IE it was blue and in firefox brown). I have no idea where to change this...hopefully someone can help me because I use a lot of emoticons etc so it looks really ugly with the frame!>__<

Hi! [06 Sep 2010|09:00am]

Hi! I was wondering if anyone could help me with a little thing I want to do. (It's not really a problem but I'd like to be able to have this happen). 

When I italicise, bold or underline text, I'd like it to be a different colour. I've gone through the CSS but I haven't found anywhere that lets me do this. So, any help would be gladly appreciated. Thanks!

Wanting to hide! [01 Mar 2010|02:36pm]

I maintain a community, draclinks, in which I record all my links to fic. I'd like to be able to point friends in real life to this community but I don't want them to have access to my LJ blog.

I use a generator variant ("Elegant" by evan) and all the entries I've made show my LJ name and user pic as the person who has made that entry. I'd like to be able to remove this and so remain anonymous.

I've had look through your FAQ but have not been able to find anything relevant. Can anyone help me?

D: [23 Oct 2009|06:18pm]

this seems like the right place to ask, if not, I'll kindly GTFO.
basically, on my journal page (http://bringtheplague.livejournal.com/), the recent enties are condensed into scroll boxes. is there any way to have them not in a scroll box when i click to go to the actual entry page (http://bringtheplague.livejournal.com/3070.html)?

basically I need to know if there's a way to have a different stylesheet for the actual entry page? i'm not entirely sure this makes sense, lol.
