In Tabula Rasa you can choose, via the wizard, the place of icons in entries and comments (left or right). So far so good. But how do you target a left-placed (or right-placed) icon with css? If I say, for instance, .entry .userpic {float: left;}, the icon will always be placed on the left side, no matter what you specify in the wizard.

I'm working on a layout/style and I'd like to style a left-placed icon somewhat different from a right-placed icon, depending on what people prefer. Plus I'd like the entry text to wrap around the icon which is easily done with 'float: left' and 'float: right'.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there, yet another newbie at DW here. I recently imported my highly customized Flexible Squares layout here with layout and theme layers. I changed around the bits that needed tweaking, but I got stuck on one thing. On LJ I have customized code for all icons (the 100x100 ones, not the 16x16 user icons in front of the user name) to link to the respective user's icons page. The link for entry user icons looks as follows:

<a href="$*SITEROOT/allpics.bml?user=$e.poster.username">

And this is the link for the user icons in comments:

<a href="$*SITEROOT/allpics.bml?user=$comment.poster.username">

Due to the different structure of the link to users' icons pages on DW, those links don't work here, but I'm stuck figuring out how to change them. For entries it seems to work just fine to replace the whole link with "icons", because DW will pull up the respective "username.dreamwidth.org/" part all on its own, but that doesn't work for the comment user pictures. How can I create a link to comment posters' icons pages?

Any help here would be highly appreciated.

ETA: Many thanks to [personal profile] chagrined for solving this and showing me how to break up link strings!

Hello, all. I asked this on my own journal, but none of my friends knew the answer, so I was hoping someone here could help!

I looks as if something is slightly broken with the Funky Circles layout, and I can't figure out how to fix it. It seems to be a new development. (Like, within the last 2-3 weeks.)

If you look at a comment, you can probably see the issue -- that user icons are sitting lower than they should, and that this obscures comment text. This issue happens regardless of whether you select the option to have the userpic on the left or the right. This seems to be occurring in all the browsers I have access to. It also doesn't appear to me isolated to my (slightly modified) layout -- when I preview my journal with other Funky Circles themes, I get the same thing.

I am a total CSS n00b, so I can't see what's what when I look at the source code on an entry. Anyone got any ideas?

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 don't really know much about programming css so hopefully these will make sense.

1. The page summary sidebar on LJ would give me [#] after the title of the post to show how many comments had been made on that post. Is there a way to do this in DW? The style I'm using now is crossroads if that makes a difference. [Solved]

2. One some posts when I comment there is an option to preview my icons to select from a pop up that has them as thumbnails which I really liked. However, on other posts this option isn't available. Is that because of the journal style being used? Why is it there some times and not others? [Solved]
