cordelianne: (Tara sassy expression)
I am officially on Dreamwidth now (same name as on LJ: [personal profile] cordelianne)! I've actually been on DW for around a week but haven't posted because I became completely absorbed in learning how to put a custom layout on the journal and fiddling with it. I am now very happy with it, check it out:

The only thing I can't figure out is how to get the people's usernames to display under their userpics when I'm viewing my friends page. Also, for community posts it'll show the username under the userpic but not the community name. I've discovered that I like to see that information when I'm looking at the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm using an awesome layout by grrliz which is here, based on the totally easy to follow instructions here (I highly recommend these instructions, I'm not technically savvy and found them really easy to use). So can anyone help me with the friends issue? It's driving me crazy, I can't figure it out! ETA: I got it!! Thanks [personal profile] callaoressene

On a happy note, I want to say thank you so much to the kind person/people who nominated my Faith/Dawn fic Life After Sunndale for TWO awards:

- Round 9 of the Rogue Poet Awards
- kinda_gay_award, which has very pretty graphics:

I think that Dreamwidth is now open (or very very soon), so I should soon have some codes to share. Definitely let me know if you'd like one - I'm not sure how many I'll have but I definitely want to share! I'm not sure if I'm leaving LJ but it's been fun playing with a new layout and there's some very cool things about Dreamwidth including the Diversity Statement. Also, I've tried to ensure that comments are open to everyone, whether you're logged into anything or not, on DW so that anyone can comment (this is how my LJ is set up). Also, you should be able to comment on LJ or DW - comment where you want! :D

hey darling, how did you fix your username under the user pic issue? i'm having the same problem and have no idea how to make it work (and thanks for the links about the custom layouts - dw is starting to finally feel homey!)

Sorry for the delay in replying, my email insisted on filtered DW comments into my spam folder - not helpful email!

Here's the link (which I totally forgot to put in the post):
I found that I needed to replace "friends" with "read" in more than one place in the code and then it worked! :D

I'm glad I thought to share the links because that's what helped me feel more at home here on DW! :D

And I'm here too! (As you clearly very cleverly noticed, without me even announcing it or adding you.)

I'll be making a general my-intentions-regarding-Dreamwidth post in [personal profile] ringthebells just as soon as I figure out, at least tentatively, what the heck they are!

hee, I am very clever! :D I had started poking around who my friends had friended to ensure that I didn't miss anyone!

Yeah, I'm uncertain of how I'll be using DW although I do really like the site so far. :D
