Help! Subject line colour/limiting space around icon in comments

Hey there,

If there is anyone still here, please help! I've gone through the memories and did not see the following two issues addressed (dear readers, I could very well be blind, however).

1. How do you change the colour of the SUBJECT LINE (currently boxer is made so that both the subject line and the text box are the same colour.)

2. Is there any way to reduce the amount of space that grows around the icon with each post made under a thread? Otherwise, the comments become bunched up quickly and are difficult to read. I am particularly interested in limiting the amount of space to the right of the user icon. For an example of the issue, please SEE HERE.

Many, many thanks!

Metadata help


What I have long wanted to be able to do is re-arrange the order of the metadata. Instead of the order that The Boxer puts it in, I'd want it to go like this, if possible:

* Mood
* Music
* Location
* Custom Friends Group
* Tags

Now, I'm very CSS dumb, but I'm smart enough to copy/paste stuff into a theme layer if someone else knows how to accomplish this! Awhile back, I'd asked a savvy person on a Component community (who knew how to do this on Component) and she'd said something about it being hardwired into the coding for the layout (?). Because I don't understand CSS stuff much less the inner workings of LJ, I'm not entirely sure what she explained because I didn't understand anyway.

At any rate, that's what I'd like to do to The Boxer's metadata. Is it possible? And if so, how?

Thanks in advance!

Html/Coding Information

Hello, I hope I am posting this in the right community. I followed all of the instructions before posting and I could not locate the information that I am looking for. I am looking for the coding to create the following scroll boxes:




I would like to know how to create the boxes, input a variety of information in them, place them on my journal. Thanks in advance for any information and help you can provide.

I recently got a paid account, so I don't know much about Boxer yet, and I apologize for that. I'm trying to get the top of my layout to look something like this, which I photoshopped. So far I have removed the mini-calendar and the journal title and subtitle. I cannot figure out how to remove the default icon (I know it can be done, as this community has removed it) and was wondering if someone could tell me how to do so, and also how and where to add in the code for the header, making sure it is below the nav bar as in the picture.
If anyone can help me with this, that would be wonderful!

Edit: I figured out how to remove the usericon, and used this code to add the header underneath my navigation. However, I would still like to know if there is a way to get it to display inside one of the info boxes, so that is has a border around it as in the image above. Also, the boxes containing icons on my friends page are white, does anyone know how to change that?

I switched on the boxer layout today and I have been editing the layout last few hours. Few things were easy to figure out, but there is one thing which is causing me an headache...

Is it possible to replace tinyicons like this:

Image Hosted by to Image Hosted by
Image Hosted by to Image Hosted by

I did try to add this code to the css box which I have used with component, but it didn't work *facepalm*

.ljuser img
width: 0px;
height: 0px;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
/*so that IE users will still see an image*/
background-image: url(; /*change URL tor keep it*/
padding: 14px 0px 0px 13px;

.ljuser img[src=""]
background-image: url(; /*change URL tor keep it*/
padding: 13px 10px 0px 10px;

.ljuser img[src=""]
background-image: url(; /*change URL tor keep it*/
padding: 16px 0px 0px 16px;

I really would appreciate your help :)
