I noticed on my entries posts my username is shown below my user pic. But on my recent entries it's not. Like in the image below left=recent right= entry.

What do I have to change to see my username on the recent entries page?

For the first time I'm trying to adapt a native DW style (Heads Up) for a comm instead of working with a ported-from-LJ one. I've been sticking to custom CSS and so far I seem to have managed to change most of the things I wasn't happy with. There are a couple of things I seem to be completely unable to fix however.

They both concern entry headers… )

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.

I'm attempting to poke together a layout using Paletteable, and was wondering if there was a way to move the username of the poster so it's right-aligned, opposite the timestamp on the entry. I've tried floating it and modifying the margins, but because of the order in which things print in the layout, the username gets stuck to the left of the user icon.

Is there a bit of code I could rearrange so that the poster prints first and then the user icon, which I could then toss into the theme layer? I've been looking through the Palettable and DW s2 source codes and unless I'm scrolling past it, I haven't found what I'm looking for so far.

Any suggestions?

[ETA] In the meantime I've done a messy bit of work with margins which seems to be working for now:

.poster, .entry-poster {
margin-top: -30px;
margin-right: -80px;
float: right;

I've got the Flexible Squares style (using this fix). It's all working fine, except usernames aren't displayed below userpics on my Reading Page, and the subject lines for entries aren't links. I'm assuming it's a CSS problem but I don't understand CSS in the slightest so any help would be fantastic!

I joined about three days ago and am just now taking the time to poke around DW to get familiar with it. I'm trying to import my Flexible Squares layout over from LJ following [personal profile] parapsychic's guide, and I alllllmost got it save for one thing: names aren't showing up under people's icons, so I have absolutely no idea whose post is whose (I can't remember everyone's icons, and some people use very similar icons, so trying to figure out who's who based on icon isn't an option). On LJ, it has their names directly below their icon, and if they posted in a community, the community (and a link to it) is available directly below their name in brackets.

Also, the subjects aren't turning into links to individual entries.

I could do without the latter if necessary, but being able to see people's names and communities is vital. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thank you, [personal profile] skieswideopen!

While I'm here, does anyone know if it's possible to import the LJ layout Magic Paper?

Thank you in advance~

Yep, I'm another refugee from Livejournal. And, while I figured out 99% of the tweaks to import Smooth Sailing into DW, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make user & community names show up on my friends' list.

How can I get feed usernames to behave like comm/journal usernames do?

Fixed with:

Thanks to all who offered suggestions :)

I'm using Flexible Squares, and when I view my friends page, the name of the user/community doesn't show up underneath the userpic. Is there a way to fix this?

I hope this is okay to post!

Hi, I just came over from LJ, and over there, I was using the Flexible Squares base layout. Thanks to this tutorial, I was able to install the layout on my Dreamwidth as well. It has worked perfectly, but I've found one problem: the usernames and comm names aren't showing up under their respective icons on my Reading Page, like so on my Livejournal friends page.

In the tutorial, this issue was addressed, but there's nothing in my CSS that could possibly hiding the usernames. I even added the line display: yes; under the .userpicfriends a section in my custom CSS, and it still didn't fix it. >__<; Do I have to edit something in that ummm, compiler thingy? I still haven't quite figured out this whole layers thing either, so I'm sorry!

I didn't see a tag for this layout, so I hope someone can help me since I'm kind of at a loss. ;__; Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

I'm one of those people who's a little too attached to her lj style, and have done some importing so i can use it here. All the compiling has worked fine, and the layout customisations are wonderful, but i seem to have no usernames for the entries on my reading page. At the moment i can recognise the user by icon, but i'd really like to find the source of the problem. If anyone can help, or knows of a work around, that'd be fabulous. The style i'm currently using is LJ's Mixit, but Flexible Squares does the same thing. Thanks again!

Problem solved, thank you!

Is there a way to highlight only those comments made by the original poster?

I know at the top of every post/page, there's a variable set for the journal-name, ie "currentJournal": "username", and that in the comments code itself, you'll find lines like:

{span class="poster comment-poster"}From: {span class="ljuser" lj:user="username" style="white-space: nowrap;"}

but is there a way (I guess in S2) to set a style associated with that variable -- where "lj:user" = "currentJournal" -- such that whenever the journal-owner posts, this comment can be offset with a variable style?

(I put tag as 'core2' but not sure that's really appropriate. Seems this should be tagged with something like 'css:alternate' since it's a question of an alt-style for css, but... no idea, really. Alt-tag if you can think of more appropriate slot, thanks!)
