Playing around...
Last night, I started to play around with some LJ coding to add some extra component boxes to my layout. After a couple of hours of frustration and non-compiling code, I decided that I should try to read the directions from the beginning. Well, whaddya know, that seems to do the trick! I managed to edit my profile box and add the "add a friend" and "my memories" buttons to it at the top right corner of my layout. Whee! But the component box that I was most excited about and which I got to work was the "Tag Cloud" box. It is the fifth box from the top on the right side. In this scrolling box (another bit of coding that I was excited about), all the tags that I've ever used are listed and linked to a page that contains each entry with that tag. SO excited about it.

Check it out and tell me what you think. You have to go to my LJ page (can't see if from your friends' page) to see the new items.

YAY!


EDIT: The various sizes of the tags are relative to how many times I've used the tag. Re-tagging some entries and consolidating some tags, I think that maya is now the largest tag.

What I'm feeling: geeky geeky

It messes up on my browser...

I was afraid of that....there are no spaces between the tags in your screenshot there. Weird. I'll work on it more. Thanks for the screenie!

;)

Some browsers are wonky with some LJ coding... I'm not sure how one would go about fixing that...
=(

Can you look at it now? I've inserted some spaces between the tag word codes...

It's perfect now!

I'm trying to upload another screenie, but Photobucket is being evil...

You'll just have to take my word for it. =P

wooooooow.

works okay on mine (firefox) but the text, like bja, is in various sizing.
priyabradfield From: priyabradfield Date: February 1st, 2006 08:35 am (UTC) (Link)
The various sizes of each tag is relative to the number of entries under each one. Which explains why the tag "blogthings" is so freaking huge. LOL

I use Firefox too. :-)

Looks very cool, I really like what you've done with it. I'm hopeless with LJ's styles, so I've been looking into getting someone to make up something for me.

Thanks! I'm working on a random quote box next. :-D

It has been slow going, but once I get sort of ramped up and sorted out, I could try to help you. But it might be a while. LOL And I can only work in the Component layout (S2 style) right now because that's what my layout is.

That's pretty neat actually...like a little search area for specific topics...

You are so organised...I used to think I was, but I think you've pipped me!

You're going to make me jealous that I didn't move to LJ again...grrrrr!

*evil laugh*

And to think, I could have helped you so much over here. :-p

Oooooh *admires tag cloud* I really like that! I wish I could have one, but it's likely one of those paid account things...too bad for me. But it looks really great, good work!

Thanks! Yeah, it is a paid account perk to be able to play around with stuff like that.

I'm working on a random quote box next. :-D
