Wait. I just had a thought. You don't normally have any sidebar on your flexi square lay out, right? If that's the case and you don't care if the tag cloud is actually contained in the header box versus being in its own box underneath it, there might be a way to get it up top using only CSS and thus easier and completely free account settings. Give me a few minutes...

Yep, I just have the main journal without a sidebar. I don't care if it's in the header at all. Thank you, thank you. :D

1. Currently, if you go to your customization section, on the page where you enter custom CSS, what do the three yes/no drop down boxes on that page say?

2. I'm not completely happy, yet. There's got to be a better way to do some of what is going on but how's this for a start?

1. Use layout's stylesheet(s) – Yes
Use layout's stylesheet(s) when including custom external stylesheet – No
Use external stylesheets - No

2. That looks great, but is there a way not to have the big block of free space by the side of the journal entries? Also, that is freaky how you got my layout so easily. :P

Yeah. I'm not sure what is going on with the white space.

I was hoping yes was the answer to the first question. That makes it easier to get the tags.

I stole your CSS. It's pretty easy to do. :)

With right click, view page source perhaps? :P

That would be one of the ways. I've also got a web developer tool bar that will let me see a bit more and a slightly more organized fashion but right click, view source would have got me all the information I needed for this. I think I got rid of the empty space. There was an auto margin in there to account for the sidebar on the side since the system knew the sidebar was on display but didn't realize I'd moved it to the top. Now I'm just playing with one other thing... I think.

You know you're made of awesome, right? Thanks so much for helping me with this! I am slightly clueless when it comes to most CSS things, I know the basics but not much more, which is unfortunate since my friend and I are starting a webpage for a webcomic we’re working on.

Let me know if you'd like me to make you an animated icon or plain icon to repay you a bit. :)

Would you want anything else in the side (now top) bar? Your default user pic, the calendar, anything?
Jordan

The calendar and link list would be nice if you can get it in there. :D

Tell me what you think

If you're happy, I'll try to figure out what all I changed and give you the directions to implement it.

If you're not happy, tell me what else you want.

That's great Rachael! Thank you. :D
