layout help  
Hey there flist! I was hoping that someone who was better at coding could help me out. I actually changed my layout and header today. Isn't it pretty? lere8 made the header and I just fell in love with it. Though I have to say, it is a bit weird not having Clark and Ollie in my header. I think it's the first time in over 3 years that they haven't been there.

Anyway, moving on. I love my layout but I wanted to fix a couple of things. For reference's sake, this is the layout that I'm currently using.

Here are the questions I have:

1) How do you make the sidebar bigger? It's too small to fit my GIFs and I tried to change the sidebar width but it ends up ruining the whole thing. I was able to change the width with the entry and that worked out fine but I can't figure this one out.

2) Under the entry, there is only 'leave a comment' and how many ever comments are in that entry. But I know other layouts have options like 'edit', 'link', 'tag' visible on the journal page itself. I was wondering, does the layout maker have to code that when they initially make the layout or is there a specific code that you can just add in? I really hope that makes sense because I don't know how else to explain it.

Any advice/help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hun, I'm in a hurry now, but if you want to change the width of your sidebar just go to the css code they gave you and look for this:

//#maincontent {
margin-top: 15px;
font-family: "Georgia", sans-serif;
font-size: 13px;
background-color: transparent;
color: #534636;
border-style: solid;
border-color: transparent;
border-width: 1px;
margin-right: 180px; [change this for 240px, for example, or whatever you want =)]
text-align: left;
}

#sidebar {

padding-top: 15px;
margin-top: 15px;
background-color: transparent;
border-color: #d5d5d5;
border-width: 2px;
border-style: solid;
font-size: 13px;
font-family: "Georgia", sans-serif;
color: #534636;
width: 160px; [And now, change this for 220px or whatever you want, and that's it!]
float: right;
text-align: left;
} //

And about the "Edit, tag, etc" part. I think it depends of the layout theme you're choosing (or they told you to choose) but it's a Flexible Squares layout so I'm not sure. Mine is Flexible Squares too and it has the "Edit, tag, etc." part on it. I'd have to check that out to find out how it works, but I have no time right now. Hopefully someone will help you with this, if not, I'll get back to you as soon as I can. ♥

PS: That new header is gorgeous!

BTW, I don't know if you used Flexible Squares before (if you did, ignore this part, haha!) but in this theme, the "Edit, tag, etc" is on the top of the page, right before the date and subject. Hope this helps! ♥

Oh, yeah, I know how to find it once i get to the actual entry but I was hoping for the options right on the main journal page, if that makes sense. Thanks anyway though! :D

Thanks! I figured it was time for a change. The header was made by lere8 and I just fell in love with it from the minute I saw it. The layout itself was by scholarslayouts. :D
