Has anyone figured out grid

I'm curious if anyone knows if it is possible to have a grid type layout for Flexible Squares or LJ layouts in general. It is one of the things I really want to try but haven't been successful.

It doesn't have to be super fancy. I just was curious if it is possible or if someone would have to be a paid member.

Icon Fonts Trouble

My icon fonts aren't working and I was wondering if it were possible to fix it.

This is my original post at support.

After I upload my CSS, save, then go to my lj, the stylesheet is empty and this is placed in it: /* suspect CSS: backslash hex */

After a few Google searches, I believe this is coming from me putting in special characters in my CSS.


div.comments a:link::before{
content: "\e90f"; <------- HERE
font-family: 'IcoMoon', 'SofiaPro', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
font-weight: 400;
padding: 2px;

I created an icon font and that is the number/code assigned to that character. Everything works fine when I edit the CSS in the browser, but when I actually apply that CSS to my journal the CSS is replaced with /* suspect CSS: backslash hex */. I think that the special character code, like "\e90f" is doing this. So, it's my understanding (though, I don't think I'm understanding well) is that LJ can't read/handle the backslashes in the above code. Is this right? And if so, is there a way around it? Or am I way off base here and /* suspect CSS: backslash hex */ doesn't mean that at all.

Thank you for any help!

Image Map Coding Help

I can't find anything on image maps here. Is it possible to do those with a header using Machine? And I have a header on my journal already. Could I use that?

I'm not that adept with coding; most of the time I just snag it somewhere. I've read that it's a complicated thing, but if anyone is able to show the exact coding I need for this then that would be ideal. I really don't know how difficult it would be to create, though.

There are also numbers involved, right? That would be problematic for me as I have severe dyscalculia. (It's the math version of dyslexia.)

I know this question requires the header and footer tag too, but I'm lost beyond that! Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Customising the subjects view


It's been years since I've done any sort of customisation or theme hacking, so I've almost completely lost the knowledge I had of how to do anything. I am, though, very savvy, so I catch on quick. I'm not sharing my code for the moment, because I don't think it's (yet) relevant to my question.

In the view you reach from a calendar/archive page by clicking on "subjects" of any month with posts, is there a way - on that page - to add each post's tags? It shows privacy level and comment count, but I'd be interested in adding tags as well.

I am using Flexible Squares, a custom layer, and have a permanent account.

Tags Help

I've spent 2 days now trying to modify my currents and I'm getting a little frustrated with tags: I've merged it to the currents and added the icon, but I cannot get the word "Tags" to go away. Any thoughts?

This is what I've got:
