Journal style

I'm in the middle of fiddling about with my journal style, and it's taking me far longer than it should because it's a while since I've used CSS, and I've never used them properly... Anyway, it's currently stuck somewhere in between what I'm aiming for, and matgb's style because I'm using his template and walkthrough. So just to reassure you that it's going to stop looking bizarre soon, hopefully...

*wonders how she can stop things being unexpectedly purple*

testing blockquote...


Right.
  • Yellow on black post subject should be neither yellow nor black
  • Border around post(s) should be dark brown and 2px
  • Links colours need improved
  • Must do something about the profile etc links on the top left that you can't see
  • I would really like the text in the sidebar boxes to not be white, but I'm not sure if I can set it to a different colour than the normal text


I have no idea how to do any of these things, so I'll wait and see if I have any bright ideas in the morning. Or if any of you do.

Ooh, I like your new book-shelves in the header! Very cool.

And of course I say just let the purple run amok! ;-)

Wot she said.

Um, the only purple in my stylesheet is 'visited link', which may explain why a lot of stuff looks purple to you (assuming your links are regular visits like mine are), if you're going for a lighter background then dumping that bit of code completely might work, getting blue and purple to work on a dark background was a pain, and links SHOULD be blue and purple, damnit!

If you need an assist I might know what to do, but mine really was a lot of trial and error that I fixed afterwards.

Aha, of course! Duh. And the journal title is also a link...which I don't think I can change. At least not easily.

Now I know what it is I can fix it - I'd probably have realised when I got that far down anyway! I'm having a lot of fun playing with the code, I haven't done anything resembling coding for far too long.

Heh, thanks. And it looks like I might have to, even though it completely fails to match...
