Hi! I'm working with City Dragon for Tectonic (because oooh, pretty colors) but I really prefer to have my tags listed in the multilevel option. Unfortunately... that adds lots a lot of irritating lines into the module.

Like this: )

I didn't mind it so much in the other modules, but I'd rather just strip those lines out completely. (I'm pretty sure it can be done - I almost think I've done it before with a different layout, but I don't remember how I did it, aka, who I cribbed the css from.)

Help, pretty please?

Hello all,

Just a quick question about the tags module -- I prefer to display my tags as a list, but I don't like that it shows the number of uses. Is there a way to get rid of that through CSS? I'm using Compartmentalize.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: solved, thank you!

I'm currently using Antares for Librarian's Dream. I have my tags organized under multiple tiers - e.g. creative, creative:rec, creative:rec:podfic - but this style shows only two tiers - i.e., creative:rec and creative:rec:podfic show up on my tag sidebar as creative:rec and, underneath, creative:podfic.

screencaps )

Can anyone help me? I have zero knowledge of CSS, so you'll have to start with pretty basic steps, probably. ^^;;;

(Mods, could I have a tag for layout: librarian's dream? Thanks!)

Hi! I was wondering if there is a way to use the list style for tags on the sidebar, but to remove the number of uses so that it's just a list of links?

Hi folks!  I just joined this community, its nice to meet you all.  I just have one straightforward question.  I looked through this community, but did not find something that answered my question.

Theme I am Using: Able Constructs, Practicality

Query: Is there a CSS code to add a scrollbar to the Tags List in the sidebar? My Tags List is growing too long and I don't like to have to scroll down the whole page to look for my tags.

I should add I don't understand CSS much at all.

Thank you for any advice you can give me folks!  Help much appreciated.

Edit: Problem SOLVED!

I'm sorry to bother you guys with this again, but I'm trying to have comma separated list of tags in my sidebar.

Last year changes in the code introduced an annoying extra space before the comma and [personal profile] marahmarie very kindly wrote me some CSS to fix the problem - see the entry here.

.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item { font-size: 12pt !important; }
.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item:after{content: ","!important; margin-left:-.2em!important;}
.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item:last-child:after { content: ""!important;}

I've recently switched layout to one of the new Strata themes and the code no longer works - there are no commas showing at all.

I tried reverting to the old version of the CSS

.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item { font-size: 12pt !important; }
.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item:after{content: ", "; }
.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item:last-child:after{content: " "; }

and the commas reappear, but still with the annoying extra space.

Does anyone have any idea what's going wrong and any suggestions about how to fix it? I tried changing the "margin-left" figure to .4 and it didn't seem to have any effect, but I don't really understand how that bit of the code is working, so it's hard to know how to change it.

Thanks so much for the help the other day! As a result, I am THIS CLOSE to being done, but there are a few really nitpicky things bothering me that I. Cannot figure out even though it's probably really obvious and embarrassing, so... I hope it's okay to post again so soon. :/

Layout: Tabula Rasa (with some theme layer tweaks)
Journal: [community profile] scorched_test

[Problem One]!
There's something very strange going on with the month archive page - Looking this guide, I see that the subject of the posts there should be styled the way the subject on the reading page is styled, so I'm not sure why it's uppercased and why the font jumps when I do a hover over. I'm probably overlooking something very obvious, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why it does that. Is there any way to make it stop? Ideally, I'd like to make it look as much like the old style lists as possible, but at this point I'd be thrilled if I could just get rid of the capslock and make the font stabilize.

[Problem Two]!
The tags menu in the sidebar - I can't seem to get the non-link-tags color or styling to change. Also, there's a double border-bottom on the subtags, and it's weirding me out. Is there any way to get it back down to one border like all the other tags?

[Problem Three]!
And finally, the new bane of my life, the horrifying sidebar problem. As you can see here and here, it seems that the #canvas div drops off at the level of the shortest div, whether that's #secondary or #primary. I'm not sure why, but it's driving me crazy. I'd like to find a way to make it continue to the bottom of the page (much like it does on the layout for this comm), if only so the top of page link won't be hanging out at the top of the page, which makes no sense whatsoever.

Basically, I'm just trying to get an effect similar to [community profile] style_system's, where the background color of the canvas extends to the bottom of the page, and the top of page link is where such a link should be - at the bottom of said page. But I can't for the life of me figure out how to do that. Does anyone have any idea, or maybe a hint as to where to look to deal with something like that? It would be VERY appreciated.

Apologies if my questions are ridiculous - I've only been on DW for a short time, and am not yet used to style-making here.

So, okay, I've recently imported a community that I run from LJ to DW, and while I was initially using a port of Flexible Squares, I've decided to be ambitious and try to replicate it as closely as possible on a native DW style so we can use all the cool features. For the most part it's working, but there are still some quirks I don't know how to fix, or if I can fix them. So.

Layout: Tabula Rasa, style sheet disabled.
Original layout: [community profile] scorched ([ profile] scorched to see it in its original, LJ form)
Current layout: [community profile] scorched_test

PROBLEM 1: The sidebar profile. I'd like to remove the header, center the icon and put the icon links in a horizontal list under the icon, preferably without that underline that I can't seem to get rid of. ¬_¬ [PROBLEM SOLVED]

PROBLEM 2: Change the link list/tag list on the sidebar (and the nav links in the header, for that matter) to a more blocklike display. (Visuals here: the way highlighted links look now - the way I'd like them to look. navlinks highlighted as i'd like - currently they don't highlight at all.) [PROBLEM SOLVED]

PROBLEM 3: Make the tags header match the rest of the headers. Not sure why this isn't happening now. [PROBLEM SOLVED]

PROBLEM 4: In general, I'd like to reduce the margin between the link lists (both Links and Tags) and the left side of the sidebar - can't figure out how to change that, either. [PROBLEM SOLVED]

PROBLEM 5: The icon and username. This is the bane of my life - is it possible to move the icon up to overlap with the title bar, and the username to, well, under the icon? (here is what I'm going for and here is what I currently have). [PROBLEM SOLVED] (I ended up using a combination of tricks from the comments here and altering the theme layer.)

PROBLEM 6: Also visible in the above pictures, the subject line and datetime. Nothing I do seems to move the datetime from the left to the right, and is there a way to put it ABOVE the subject line instead of under? [PROBLEM SOLVED] - kind of. I couldnt get the date to work properly above the subject so i tucked it in under. Either way, it's fine.

PROBLEM 7: Is there any way to get the sidebar to extend to the bottom of the page and the .pagetop link to the bottom, as well? as seen here, the link currently just hangs out at the bottom of the shortest column (also seen here) which is sort of awkward, and i'd prefer the sidebar continue long as seen on [community profile] scorched_ooc.

STRANGE RANDOM BONUS PROBLEM: If you go to [community profile] scorched_test you'll find that clicking a title link makes the title flash dark blue while active, as do the navlinks in the header. I CAN'T MAKE THEM STOP DOING THAT. DX I've tried various stylings on a:active for .header, .entry-title, even the general a:active but nothing seems to change it.

My current CSS, which is a bit of a frankenstein mess at the moment, my apologies.

I do realize it's a different style altogether and not everything I'd like to do may even be possible, SO if that's the case, please let me know so I can stop banging my head against it. >.<

Sorry to hit you guys with so much at once, but any help with any of these issues at all would be so appreciated I might explode.

Problem 1 : Header - I want to get rid of the journal title, subtitle and the "Recent" (or any nav title) SOLVED!
Problem 2 : Links at the bottom of entries (AKA edit entry, adit tags,...) - I want them to me white :-) SOLVED!
Problem 3 : Navi links - I want to move them under the header and centered. SOLVED!
Problem 4 : Subject of entries - is it possible to move them a few px to the right from the icon? And maybe making the font a bit bigger and in bold? SOLVED!
Problem 5 : I want to get rid of the "Previous 20/Next 20" links/bar at the top of the journal and only leaving the ones at the bottom. SOLVED!
Problem 6 : I would like to move everything (icon, subect, date, TEXT,...) a few px on BOTH sides from the border in the entries AND the module/sidebar. SOLVED!
Problem 7 : I would like to move the entries so when clicking on the "Reading/Friends" page (or any other for that matter) they would be at the same height as on the "Recent" page (AKA same distance from the header everywhere). SOLVED!

I'm totally new here and have no clue how to write CSS so if you managed to help me with these with some CSS coding or even just pointing me in the right direction and telling me what's possible and what not I would be super thankful and might possibly owe you my firstborn :-D
The DW confuses me and takes away my sleep :-( Please help! O.o

Is there a class for each level of a multilevel tag? I want to make the first tier of mine on my popular tags module have a different appearance (small caps, italics, something). I found the span.non-link-tag class, but as far as I can tell that's being used for both first and second tiers, and I want just the first.

So if I had something like:
foo: bar: llamas
foo: bar: wildebeest
foo: ticky: pandas

I'd want "foo" to be italicized/capped, but not "bar" or "ticky".

When you set your tags to display in your module as a cloud, is there a way to make them all uniform in size? Like, even if the tag is used more often than the others, they're all the same size.

Is there any way to get my tags to show up multilevel in the sidebar of my journal, the way they show up on my tags page? So instead of having

fandom:Harry Potter

it would show up as

             Harry Potter

I have absolutely no clue about CSS and the like, so please use really easy language. /o\

Thanks a lot in advance!

I think I got the terminology right in the title, but I'm unsure. My tricky problem is as follows:

I haven't dabbled much at all into CSS, but I'm part of a mod-team which wants to mirror a community on LJ and DW. Over on LJ we have a very pretty layout: [ profile] dhr_advent which was made by a volunteer (who does not have a DW account). I would like to use this same layout over on DW.

I used [personal profile] parapsychic's Importing Flexible Squares journal style to Dreamwidth, and was able to get the visuals to work: See [community profile] dhr_advent

However, all the little things that make Dreamwidth enjoyable are horribly busted. I assume that this is because that's all built into the DW S2 stuff, and not LJ's flexible squares. Right now, I can't manage tags, I can't click headers to open entries, the tag module isn't appearing on the front page, and who knows what else.

What's my best bet to mimic as closely as possible the LJ lay-out, but in DW? I'm aware of two resources:

Conversion Guide: Flexible Squares


Custom CSS written for LJ )

Are these my best resources for doing a conversion? Is there another resource or write-up I should know? Any tips for a beginner CSS person? Am I completely missing something that I should know? :)

Last year, I posted about getting a comma-separated list for my tags, and somebody helped me to sort it out.

Somehow, though, changes in the site or my layout mean that it no longer works quite right, and I was hoping somebody might help me to fix it.

The problem is with the commas after each item - there is always a space first, so the commas look rather odd.

At the moment I'm using

.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item { font-size: 12pt !important; }
.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item:after{content: ", "; }
.module-tags_cloud .module-list-item:last-child:after{content: " "; }

Thank you for any help you can give me.

I'm using the neon butterflies layout found here and can't get my tags list to show up in the sidebar. I've tried going into the customize module page and everything is checked properly. It's just not showing up. Any ideas as to what's going on?

(I have a metric assload of tags. I'm access-locked, though, so they don't actually show up if you don't have access. If anyone wants access to see what's the what, let me know and I'll grant it temporarily.)

[1] The first question is related to this entry and this comment. The CSS (see cut) worked fine just a few weeks ago, but now the CSS doesn't take out the space between the tag and the comma anymore, so the tags run occasionally onto the next line which looks kinda ugly. What happened? I use the same browser(s), so I can only assume something in DW's style system has changed...? [The 'plot' thickens here]

The CSS in question: )

[2] Is it possible to add via the theme layer a comment count to the "Active Entries" module (like in the "Page summary" module)? [Possible, but someone needs to code it first :) ]

[3] Is there a way (via CSS or theme layer) to set some kind of "default icon" for entries without userpic on your reading/network page? Feeds don't have an user icon (which they should, IMO) and sometimes people post entries without an icon. [SOLVED here]

[4] Is it somehow possible to change the month order (latest calendar month first) on a journal's/community's archive page? [SOLVED with a workaround. A bug is being filed about this.]

That's all (for know) :) Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

The one thing I miss on Dreamwidth is that I really want my tags to display as a comma-separated list, rather than a cloud or a long list. I was able to do that on LJ with somebody else's custom CSS, but unfortunately I don't know enough to be able to adapt it.

I'm currently using a Crossroads theme and if I could get all the text to display the same size as the smallest for the cloud setting, that would be great.

Is there anyone who has done this, or would be able to help me set it up?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello, I was hoping you'd be able to help me customize this layout further since the layout maker wasn't able to help. Once it's done, the layout will be changed significantly. I'm having trouble figuring some things out. The list is extensive, so I'd be grateful however much you're able to help me solve. )

I have the Sunday Morning style installed on my journal, and I don't want the tags to display on my sidebar. I've looked through the wizard and don't see anything that take them out.

In the CSS, can I set
module-tags{display: none;}

Or something like that?

I feel like such a failure.

I have a very nice layout on my LiveJournal page - clean and simple. Unfortunately the style (Miniml) is not available within Dreamwidth, and attempts on my part to recreate it or at least to build something similar are failing dismally. The limitations of the "customise style" pages are just about driving me to drink.

After numerous attempts with Tabula Rasa, all of them unsuccessful (including de-selecting "use layout's stylesheet" and copying the Miniml css into the box), I tried using Modish (Greyscale colour scheme) and changing all the background and font colours. This has had mixed success (you can see it here). I was able to get the page and module backgrounds to white, with white borders, so that it lookes a bit cleaner. However, I am unable to change the font weight for the page header (Alassenya) to bold, or the subtitle to italic, and for some reason I can't change the font colour for the page links at the left - they remain resolutely white (and thus invisible) until clicked on. I have tried using the "custom css" box to fix them but had no success.

So basically I have a two-tier question:
a. Is anyone able to devise a layout that resembles Miniml for DW?
b. If not, how do I resolve the font weight and colour issues in Modish?
Edit: partly resolved, I have the H1 in bold and H2 in italic, but I still don't have visible links at left.

I also have a supplementary question: how do I remove the number of uses from my tags list? I like it as a list, not a cloud, but I don't want the number of uses appearing next to each tag.
