I've been trying to figure out the different overrides and customizations for the Component layout... but I give up! I hate it! They want you to be a genius and I'm so not!
I can look at coding and pretty much figure out what it is doing but I can't piece it together for all over the frakkin Live Journal world!!!!!! All I get is ERROR ERROR ERROR... I'm just so tired of it! Why aren't there premade layouts for Component? Why isn't there an easy explaination for making it. I'm sorry but I've stumbled on those "easy tutorials" and I feel like a complete idiot because it flies right over my head. I try to take it all one step at a time but in the end I give up... CALL ME A QUITER I DON'T GIVE A RATS ASS! I hate Component and that is all there is to it!
I mean all I wanted was to be able to add things to the side of my LJ. I love wive and carpenyx's journals. I love how the banner looks like an entry... but when I tried doing that it screwed the how damnable journal up. I also love how they have little extras on the side of their journals... like Favorite Icons... I wanted an "I Love These Books" but I can see to get anything to work...
Even the stupid premade layouts don't do what I want. I want every page to have the same header and side bar. I guess that is something you do in custumization... that is if you can figure out their alien babble.
*sigh* I know I'm a ranting... whiner but I just want to make my LJ pretty and I can't seem to figure it out! I'll go back to wallowing in my misery now.
*banging head on desk*
