Journal --> Customize Journal Style. Then click on Sidebar, then there's an option for "Show tags in the sidebar?" (Yes) and "Display of tags in the sidebar" (Cloud or List).

It's not giving me that option. Do I have to have a specific layout or theme?

Maybe. I've been using Flexible Squares (http://www.livejournal.com/customize/?layoutid=4472608&show=) since papilio_luna recommended it as being highly customizable. I used to use Expressive, I think, and I'm pretty sure it allowed a tag list.

ETA: See this link: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=226

"Style System: S2 journals show tags on all pages, while S1 journals only show tags on the tag listing and comment pages."

Okay, wow, I'm going to be really needy today. I switched to flexible squares and I really like this layout better and I've got my tags list on the right, but how do I put a banner in?? I did it almost a year ago now and I can't remember.

Hey, I appreciate the excuse to procrastinate from novel writing!

So go to Journal --> Customize Journal Style. Then click on "Custom CSS".

Paste this in:

.headerimage {
height: 300px;
margin-top: -15px;
background-image: url("URL FOR YOUR HEADER IMAGE GOES HERE") !important;
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-attachment: scroll !important;
background-position: center !important;

margin-bottom: 3px;
}

You'll want to fiddle with the values for height, margin-top, and margin-bottom, depending on the size of your image.

*sob!*

It didn't work. What am I doing wrong?

Can you paste the code that you're using into the reply to this, or a PM to me? Including the actual url for your header graphic? (I'm far from a CSS expert - i.e., I don't know dick about it - so my own code was copied and pasted from another source. But I'll try to see if I can spot something?

I just copied and pasted what you gave me and put the URL in the parenthesis. Was I being too literal?

{
height: 300px;
margin-top: -15px;
background-image: URL HERE !important;
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-attachment: scroll !important;
background-position: center !important;

margin-bottom: 3px;
}

Squee!!! It works now. Thank you so much for your message. I'm sure it was the spacing. :)

Wish I'd thought of that yesterday! Glad it works now.
