New Journal Style?
I changed the style of my journal. I like these new S2 styles, only I have found that the default color schemes are too "soft"; they don't encourage enough contrast between the text and the background. I can't read people's journals half the time. I literally have to select the text with my mouse, because the highlighted text has sufficient contrast for me to read it easily. The default color scheme I selected was gray on white. I switched it to black on white. Now it's legible. Plus, it's fairly colorless and low-key -- better for reading at work.

I really like the little calendar, and I love that it shows my icons with each entry. I want a links component though. It says I can have a links component, and I just have to put my links under the links tab. I can't find a links tab. Oh well, it's still mildly entertaining to play with....but I don't want to keep it if I can't easily put my links in. I miss having my comics links on my friends page!

edit:
Never mind, katester found the links for me. But feel free to provide feedback on the new look, if you are so inspired!

Well darn it! I wonder if they turned the link editor "off" because there was something wrong with it? Or maybe it's just really well-hidden!

If you figure it out, definitely let me know.

Yay, thank you! I don't know how you got there, but I'm glad you did. (: I even put the link in my links, so I wouldn't lose it again... heehee.
