I have an imported Flexible Squares layout, but I can't tell who is who on my reading page here on DW. On LJ, the user name or community would show up underneath the userpic. What string of code in which layer will allow that to show up?

I presume it's being overwritten by something in DW layers, or because of the difference in naming between 'friends' on LJ and 'reading' on DW, it isn't showing up correctly.

I want the months on the Year page's calendar to not have the year at the end of them. For example, I want them to say "March" instead of "March 2014". How would I do that using a theme layer?

Thanks in advance!

Would it be possible to merge the "previous" and "next" links with the main navigation that has the "recent entries"/"read page"/"tags", etc links in it?

The end result I am looking for is a header navigation that goes in this order:

previous | recent entries | archive | read | tags | info | next

I would prefer if the previous/next links only show up if there are actually entries before/afterward.

I hope that was clear enough! Thanks in advance.

ETA: SOLVED. With this layout, deleting display:none from .clearfoot fixes things right up (yes, the design seems to be inadvertently coded so that it cuts off the sidebar in the three views mentioned in my post title).

Like in this example. Another user in this community had the same problem months ago (not with this style, actually a Core 2 style) and I was one of the ones who helped them, though I wasn't of much help because nothing I tried or suggested at the time really worked. Can't help myself now, either. Any suggestions?

In a date format that includes the day of the week in it, does anyone know how to replace the name of the day of the week with an image. For example, if I wanted to replace the text "Sat" with this image: a circle with the text "Sat" on it

This is the custom format I'm using for the date on the journal in question. Applied through theme layer.

If I'm using a code like this to change my date format, is there a way to add classes to the heart symbols I'm using as separators?

The code:

set entry_date_format = "short";
set lang_fmt_date_short = "%%da%% ❤ %%mm%%/%%d%%/%%yy%%";

set entry_time_format = "short";
set lang_fmt_time_short = "❤ %%hh%%:%%min%% %%a%%m";

Any help is appreciated!

1) Is there a way I can remove the links from the date on Transmogrified?

2) I would also like to know how to remove "(no subject)" from entries and comments that do not have a subject by editing layers. (I know there is a way to do it through CSS, but I don't like the slight space it leaves behind.)

What would I need to add to my layout layer to make the date format show up as "Wednesday • 08/03/11 • 5:00 am"? Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance.

I'm currently working on a layout that requires use of two custom content modules in Tabula Rasa. I've been so used to working with LJ's S2 that it didn't occur to me while I was designing that DW would only offer one custom text module as standard in the wizard.

Does anyone know the code for adding additional custom content modules in the theme layer? Please note that I am one of those people who is very proficient in CSS but not so great at S2 or other types of coding, so step by step instructions would be a godsend.

Thanks in advance!

I'd like to move the filter meta data to the .datetime span - if that's possible, that is. So, instead of '4 December 2010 at 13:00' it should display something like '4 December 2010 at 13:00 in *some filter(s)*'.

What do I have to change in/add to my theme layer? Solution can be found here :)

I have a premium paid account, and just tried to make an additional style. I was given a helpful (?) error that said I had used up my limit of Styles. What I'd like to know is, how many styles and layers do account holders have at each level?

Thanks for all the fish!

I joined DW when it was closed beta and used an imported core 1 style: Mixit, Linus and Lucy - for [community profile] sg1genrecs. I've had various tweakings done on the layout (with help!) and I really don't want to change it.

On the other hand, I very much would like to change the tag list to multilevel - for a rec comm with so many different tags, a multilevel would make it much easier for people to find what they're looking for.

Does anyone know if it's possible to add the multilevel tag option to a core 1 style? And if so, could you please hold my hand and walk me very slowly through it? :)

I created a custom style before DW went into open beta, based on Core2, with some tweaks to my theme layer.

Despite a few minor changes that I've had to make along the way as the code or my needs have changed, it works out pretty well for me, but I am having a few issues that I hope someone can help with.

1) My header has the navigation links for the journal. They work fine with IE, but are just plain text in FF. I've tried fixing this with z-index:999; in every div I can think of, to no joy. Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong?

2)Journal Syndication. I moved this to module 3 and made it part of my footer, yet, I just noticed that it only shows up on the main page. Is there a reason it's not on the entry pages?

Hi everyone. I was wondering if there is a way to switch to a new layout/theme, without having to redo all the customizations (for instance, I have custom text replacing the default "Leave a Comment/# comments" and other navigational links, as well as a custom text box)?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. :)

I just tried to edit my style and got this error:

S2 Compiler Output at Sun Sep 13 02:31:23 2009
Error compiling layer:

Compile error: line 170, column 5: Can't override property 'font_base_size' of type string with new type int.
S2::NodeProperty, S2/, 120
S2::NodePropGroup, S2/, 77
S2::Checker, S2/, 374
S2::Compiler, S2/, 34


166: property string font_base {
167: des = "Default Font for the page";
168: note = "This font will apply to the entire page as the base font. If you set any of the other font properties below, they will override this setting for that specific part of the page.";
169: }
170: property int font_base_size {
171: des = "Default Font Size for the page.";
172: }
173: property string font_header_title {
174: des = "Font for the Header Title";

What I can't figure out is why it expects it to be a string.

To confuse things further, this code has been in my style for ages and has always compiled fine before. It's completely unrelated to what I was changing. In fact, when I refresh the page and then hit "Save & compile" without making any changes at all to my existing and entirely functional style, I get that error.

Any idea how to fix it?

EDIT: I gave up and made all the ints into strings, and it mostly seems to be working okay except that now my menu bar is a million pixels high because it's supposed to be the header font size plus 8 and of course you can't add 8 to a string. I may just have to hardcode that. GRRR.

This is a theme layer modification that stops comment indenting after reaching a certain comment depth. You can also customize how much each comment will indent from its parent comment.

Hi! I posted this to [community profile] getting_started and someone in the comments suggested I also ask for advice here:

Right now one of the links under my header (the one pointing to my DW network) is titled 'unknown view'. Does anyone know how to make it say 'network' or something like that?

I'm pretty sure it can be done, cause my 'memories' link also appeared as 'unknown view' at first till some css-savvy soul posted a few lines of code that I had to insert into my stylesheet.

Many thanks.

ETA: [personal profile] av8rmike figured it out! See comments for the solution (if you need it).

If I set the custom_css in a theme layer, will it be used when I create a style with the theme layer?

Will I be able to alter the css in the theme via the wizard?

So let us suppose that I'm making a theme for a layout that already uses the print_stylesheet function (a theme for Modish, in the event). Let us further suppose that I want to add a little bit of css to this theme without copying the whole inherited stylesheet just to change one line. Does anyone know of a good way to do this?
