Now, I'm a little tee'd off....  
Remember that uplifting post about being able to change the look of the NEW LJ Nav Menu????

Well, now it isn't working so if you used that coding, I'd delete it if you can't see your journal all of the sudden. It is probably something in my coding but being the suspicious person I am... I find it odd LJ commented to my post to tell me it got so many hits and then the coding broke.

Again, maybe I'm being paranoid... more than likely. I'm looking into the coding and will post again should I figure out the issue. Of course, none of this would be an issue if LJ would just let us change the colors on the bar we see over our Journal's and Communities.

In case you are wondering... I still love Live Journal. I just wish they'd give us a little more freedom of design.

If you shared the previous post... please share this:

now i am intrigued for two reasons:
how many hits did you get? and why does lj not see that their latest update is not one well received...

as for the new bar itself- i really tried to live with it- but honestly the left side is where lj used to have all its stuff- this is a huge switch also i would not only prefer a color option but also a way to make the many choose-able - i know what menu stuff i need and its not they stuff the have as an option... but no more comments...

No clue.

I don't know if it isn't well received. I mean I think a lot of people dislike it but I'm not against it... just the fact that we can't make it fit with our journals or possible make it disappear like in the past.

It is an adjustment but I see why they are doing it. They are trying to upgrade the system and make things user friendly so they can get fresh blood. Without it LJ will die.

BUT they need to make smart decisions. You can update things and allow users customization rights.

this is the statement of the year!
and yes i see the need for fresh blood too, and i understand it

i dont understand the sudden dysfunction of your code... and lj's decision to make customization so hard

BINGO! So with you there!

I think it is mostly that they are still working on it and I jumped in the moment they went live. They are still working on things which means they are changing stuff which would break my coding. So mutual messy-age.
