Hi, I've been away from DW for a good while, and as I came back, my page as portisGames (and other journals too) had a totally broken layout.

Now I vaguely remember feeds from DW about mobile layout etc (though I'm not even sure it is this issue), but as I read them I didn't use my DWs, and now I can barely make sense of what was mentioned in a few posts from DWstyles I just read, nor immerse myself in my old CSS... No clue what was modified, what I can change only per CSS since I kinda know HTML but nothing in LJ-DW's layer system - and blind clueless writing/testing CSS from a tablet (pc broken), with the bothersome scrolling...ugh.
I've completely lost touch with LJ/DW codes, layouts etc too.

I'm using Funky Circles, and on this journal here, only 1 column. It gets cut and the difference in width is somehow added below, making a long bit of column hanging left. I saw a post in DWstyles about new options to define the width from which the style switches from/to mobile or desktop (?) i.e. 2/1 column - but I tried, not to avail, which makes sense since I think it's not the problem anyway: I only have 1 column...

I'm sure it's a very well known issue but I don't even know what I'm looking for. Any help?

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?

I'm trying to replace the funky circles in question with a different picture, preferably superimposed over the title banner the way that the circles are normally. The current testbed is the otherwise-blank [community profile] fursona community, which is being styled to emulate the best parts of [personal profile] aliaspseudonym's Tumblr. I'm just running into two problems:

One, due to the complex way that the circles are coded into the layer (as referenced in this comment on this entry, I'm not even sure how to extract and replace them completely, at least not using CSS. This comment explains how to do a custom header image, and that seems to work, but we're not going for that style of header.

Two, even replacing the background-image URL in that CSS style doesn't actually replace the background image. Does it need to be a paid account for me to do that? I'm confused.

Any help would be appreciated, even if it involves going into S2 (I've done a little of that before).

Hello everyone,

I am currently using the "Nevermore" theme, based on "Funky Circles", and I have a few questions.

Here's what I would like to do: I have added a header via the "customize" boxes, but my header refuses to budge from the upper right hand corner.

Also, my background doesn't start till after the bottom of the header, so obviously I need to add the header in the code itself, and not to the customization boxes. But I have no idea how to get in to the guts of my theme. Not a clue where to look for it.

When I look under my layers, I see the customizations made via the wizard, and also the previous layout that I originally installed. When I click on custom css, I get a blank box. When I click on customize, I just go back to the wizard area. HOW do I find the code for my current style? I'm sure this is something totally obvious, and I'm just being thick, but I'm beating my head against the wall at this point, lol.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give a clueless DW newb!

Before I try to duplicate Classic as a custom layout on Dreamwidth, I figured I should check to see if it had already been done. The style search turns up nothing - is it here under another name?

If I do need to create it myself, are this tutorial and addendum all I need to accomplish that task?

Hi. I have a similar request to [personal profile] kake's making journal title link to recent entries, but I'm using a different style and, for bonus points, know absolutely nothing about custom styles.

I'm using Funky Circles for my theme. Specifically I'd like to have the words in the header (journal title) link back to the main entry page, or the page you get when you hit http://erika.dreamwidth.org/

As an extra special bonus request, I'd also like to have space between my entry text and the metadata below it: mood, music, location, tags etc. I did see this entry about it but from what I know of CSS the solution provided for her would only work for tags specifically, and I need all metadata separated from the entry (but not from each other).

I am currently a free user but plan to pay up as soon as my student money hits the bank, so if I can't do it now, just tell me how to do it then. :)

Thank you so much!

Hi all. I have a pretty low-level n00b question. :)

I'm using the Funky Circles theme, and I've set custom values for fonts, font sizes, etc using the wizard. What I can't figure out is how to change the appearance of the title, subject headers, and some module headings.

I can set the font, but there is a bit of code in the CSS that I can see if I view the pages source:

text-transform: uppercase;

I'd like to remove this wherever it occurs, because I dislike the look of the all caps titles, but I can't figure out how to get in there and tinker with it.

Thanks for your help. I've been digging around for hours trying to figure this one out!
