Okay, this is a request for someone who knows DW's system and CSS; I am trying to update my layers and oh God it's a work in progress and i cannot find out how I moved my top links to the right.

This is, I admit, my own fault.

When I first got my DW, I went crazy with creating my own base layer for all pages, but that was when I was still doing CSS regularly. I am so rusty. I used the new core to create a new base with the same elements, but my own code is kind of screwing me because creating functions is fun for me. Even though I think some aren't needed anymore, I literally went through and customized each page and this is like coding hell.

If anyone wants to look at it and help, I'd appreciate it so much. It's what I put up now, because nothing will inspire me to actually work on it as being annoyed every time I look at my DW and see something wrong.

Also! If anyone sees problems when reading/commenting, tell me!

of all the things i had wished for with dreamwidth, scheduled posting was the biggest followed by "making it look nicer with layouts". i gave up on the latter and pray every other year for the former.
It's been so long I don't actually remember how layers and Dreamwidth custom CSS work, but I can tell you that your top links are on the right because of this part of the CSS:

.module-content {
font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; font-size: .75em;

From my quick tests, if you set text-align to left it'll left align it, if you delete it it will center it. To override it just for that module (better practice!) I would add:
.module-navlinks .module-content {
text-align: center;

The code is inline on the page, so I think it's likely to be in the Theme Customization settings rather than a layer... (ie https://www.dreamwidth.org/customize/options?group=customcss )

Ahh, this is a bit hard because I can't see the select checkbox on your journal. So since I don't know how to target that element, I can fudge the effect with:

.comment-wrapper .datetime {
display: block;

(making the element before it block level so it's on its own line)

And if you want the checkbox and the icons on the same line:

.comment-management-links {
display: inline-block;

(making the icons not block level, so they'll line up next to the checkbox)

Well, depending on what you want to do with your layout.. it's not responsive/adapting to mobile screen resolutions. But I've opted on DW that I comment via my own layout, so for me it's not a problem.

Yay for getting the code to how you wanted it to perform :D.

I used to be good at CSS, and started learning responsive CSS because I was part of the project with a company to build our library's CSS. And then (a ton of things affected this obvs) I slammed right into a wall of stress exhaustion/brain fatigue and was on sick leave for 9 months. So nowadays I just, dnw. At all lol. But good luck!
