Create Theme Layer

Creating a Theme Layer (for InsaneJournal users)

You will have also created a user layer automatically because of the css. In editing theme and user layer place on top instead:

Under Theme
layerinfo "type" = "theme";
layerinfo "name" = "";

With This
layerinfo "type" = "theme";
layerinfo "name" = "Baroque";

Under User
layerinfo "type" = "user";
layerinfo "name" = "Auto-generated Customizations";

With This
layerinfo "type" = "user";
layerinfo "name" = "Baroque";

Believe me, this is a simple way if you redesign your journal a lot with custom layers.

Add these into theme layer

Multi-Layer Tags

Note: See all Tags on Sidebar:

The tags verical scroll, just remove this out of Multi-Layer Tags code:
/* Vertical Scroll */
/* Need to shrink the list width to prevent horizontal scrollbar in Firefox. */
/* Note this won't prevent it if your tags are super long, it will only */
/* prevent it from displaying unnecessarily. For the pleasure of IE users */
/* you can also colour any resulting scrollbars as you desire. */
ul.tagList {
width: 70%;
.tagBox {
height: 200px;
overflow: auto;
scrollbar-arrow-color: #ffffff;
scrollbar-base-color: #930000;
scrollbar-face-color: #930000;
scrollbar-highlight-color: #cb7575;
scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #000000;
scrollbar-track-color: #930000;

To add a custom textbox, just add this into the Multi-Layer Tags code:

After this:

Page::lay_print_custom_paraphernalia() {

Before this:

    var string id      = "";
    var string header  = "";
    var string content = "";

Want to change the title of the textbox, simply replace CustomText with the name you've chosen.

To change the position on the sidebar such as tags below the links, just add this into the Theme code:

This is the natural order for this Dear Diary sidebar but to rearrange, simply changing the paraphernalias in the position where you want it. And Save.
