Expressive updates

We're glad you've given Expressive so much love. <3
There were some bugs that we didn't catch before the release, but most of those should be fixed now, and we're working on the ones that aren't. Thanks for helping us find them, and for letting us know.

We've also implemented a few things of the things that you have asked for:

hide/show different sections of your sidebar
The customize wizard now enables you to easily hide (or display) the various sidebar components in Expressive. By easily, I mean you don't have to touch the CSS, just choose between show/hide in the dropdown :)
The option is available in the sidebar section of the Custom Options tab (on the Customize page).

tags in a cloud or tags in a list

We fixed the tag cloud logic – if you've used all your tags only once, they'll all display at a smaller size instead of all the tags being huge in the cloud. But if you'd still rather have your tags display in a list, or not in the sidebar at all, that choice is also available now.

custom text bug fixed
fix it on your journal though.When you edit the entry footer text, all the changes you make will show up now (instead of just on "leave a comment")

sticky post
We also added in the option for a sticky post. If you want to have a post that stays at the top of the page, above all your other entries, you can now do this in Expressive without having to date the post in the future. Go to the Text section of the Customize Options tab, and about halfway down the page, you'll find the fields to enter in a subject line and entry text.

The subject of this post has a different colored background to differentiate it from your regular posts. If you'd like to change the color, add this bit of CSS to your stylesheet or in the custom css box:
.asset-name-hover{background-color:color you want;}

ETA: The sticky post is text that's placed into the layout template, mimicked to look like an entry. This means that it doesn't have a page of its own, and currently can't have comments.

browser problems
The problem with comments overlapping in IE has been fixed, but the code still needs to be pushed (next week). In the meantime, you can fix the overlapping on your own journal by adding *html .comment { height: 1%; } to the your stylesheet or in the custom css box. We're still working on the double scrollbar in older versions of Safari.
