It looks awesome, but I can't get a link for it or anything. ....

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. This is the instructions page, all of the instructions to set it up are here -- is that what you meant?

She means to see what it looks like - the screenshot is way too small, can we see a live version perhaps?

I'm testing it on this journal, and the navigation links beneath the entries are very small (the reply, link, tell a friend, flag, ect.) Is it supposed to look like that, or did I screw up when installing it?

But otherwise, it looks really cute! I love the colors :D

I had the same problem... If you want to fix this, enter the url for the css file (http://glass-slipper.net/lj-extras/clouds-css.css) in your browser and copy the whole thing. Then, instead of working with the "Custom external stylesheet URL", leave the feild blank and paste the whole CSS code into the "custom stylesheet" text box. To make the navigation links bigger, search (Ctrl+F) for "font"; there's one in there that is 0.1em... make it 1em (or anything bigger), and that will fix the problem :)

I applied this theme to my journal and I'm loving it, very nice :)

I took the liberty of downloading the .css file and modifying it a little (just to make the "comment" links bigger), I hope you don't mind!

Hey, me again! I'm having some problems with the tags, they won't show on all my entries...? Also, I'm trying to get the itesm in the sidebar to match the ones in the preview here, and I just can't seem to figure how to do it, the order of the items seems compltely random. Would you mind telling me the order of the item (#1=tags, #2=Links, etc.)?

Thanks in advance!
