I've just discovered that Richard can't see my most recent LJ posts...

Can other people read them?

There's one on the allotment and slugs, one on a problem with ebay, 'River Song' a partially-locked one on thoughts about money, some photos of clouds, and two last night relating to a book about Margot Fonteyn.

I've made a guess as to what was causing the problem and done something that may/may not have fixed it.

So, have you seen the posts I mention?

Can you see them on your friends list now, or only by going directly to my journal?

I'm still trying to find the perfect journal layout.

I've a preference for Bloggish and Expressive because of the tag lists.  Bloggish Powell St is nice and straightforward and uncluttered.  In fact, the only thing I don't like about it is that there is no clear visual break between difference people's comments.

A lot of the Expressive options are far too fussy.  The default isn't too bad, though I'm not madly keen on the font.  Again, there's no clear breaks between comments.  However, I quite like the three column layout of Expressive.

Expressive - Book - has a better font, but the tag cloud looks a bit odd and hard to read.

Expressive - Autumn theme cherry - much easier to read and good handling of tags, but I don't like the header.

Expressive Butterflies grey - underlining the orange tags is not a good idea.

Expressive - CAlifornia Poppy  - tag cloud has font problems

Expressive - Carson - not too bad.  Tag cloud is mostly readable and comments by the owner of a journal are boxed when you read the comments.

Expressive - Cityscape London - messy tag cloud with some font sizes.

Aargh!  This is killing my wrists.  What I want is some version of Expressive that has a readable tag cloud and is reasonably plain in general look.  I can't tell what they look like well enough from the theme preview page, so I have to keep viewing my journal through them on another tab and it's not good for me.

I'm going to stick with Bloggish Powell St for today.

My friends page was displaying too wide this morning, I had to scroll sideways to be able to read it.

It turns out that the cause is one of my friends (I won't say who) posted an entry with a very long link to another page.

I'm told that if you use a link tag (see page below) then this problem will not arise.
