Ada Vertissiment

These guide tells you how to kill the Navigation Strip on all journals, including those which have set it to display for every user.

This guide has been moved to No LJ Ads Wiki. See the Removing the NavStrip guide to see an up-to-date guide.

If you need help, please let us know either in a comment here or on the Discussion page of the Wiki guide.

It's working. Foxfire, British English version, bootleg Windows 2000 that came with my cheap eBay refurbished ThinkPad.

Works great! I tested it on journals I know force the Nav Strip.

I am so grateful to you for enabling me to avoid seeing all this annoying crap.

Awesome. This has been a long time coming, you guys have been nice'n'patient.

Works for me, too -- running Firefox with Stylish on OS X.

Thanks a lot! :D

Aww, we're sisters in browsing!

I'm glad it's working for ya'll. I'm a NavStrip aficionado myself, so this is one extension I'm not gonna use.

Firefox (UK English), Windows XP, using the GreaseMonkey script.

It works perfectly. Thanks for figuring out how to get rid of the Nav Strip on other people and communities' journals. ^_^

Works perfectly for me: OS X 10.4.6 (US), Firefox (US), GreaseMonkey.

Finally I don't have to see that pesky thing, thank you!!!

The Stylish sheet worked fine. It was a little weird to visit the_unadvocate and see no entries on the journal, though. I thought something had gone wrong and the sheet was somehow (don't ask me how, I know CSS pretty well, and I couldn't see anything) blocking the journal's entries as well. :P There are some entries in the archive, but none of them are visible. Eh?
18th-Jun-2006 10:41 am (UTC) - Re: Yes and an Unrelated No
I had various random note type entries there, but then the ad demographic targetting started to pick up on all the public entries, so I friended them all to see an untargetted spread when I was doing ad content checks, since she's the account I use to collect ad examples.

Now I feel like I should make some entries there and make a secondary Sponsored+ account for my own purposes and testing! So thank you for talking about that; you're right, it is kind of weird to not have entries on a test journal.

Good to know the Stylish is working fine, though!

Firefox 1.0.7, user stylesheet as I told you. Works peachy. :D

Methinks this is worthy of linking to in e_lj. We get enough people who want to turn the darn obviously-ganked-from-Blogger thing off.
18th-Jun-2006 10:47 am (UTC)
I honestly should try my best to go test this CSS in other browsers and hope that I don't run into some weird browser quirk! I feel very FX centric sometimes.

But if you think e_lj could use it, link away! I'm pretty sure there are already other tutorials to prettify it for people, but if you would like one of those, I could also make one, although I don't think I'd post it here.

I get the following error when I try to install the Greasemonkey script:

Error window

Firefox, OS 10.3.9, 867 MHz PowerBook G4.
19th-Jun-2006 07:50 am (UTC)
I've actually run into that error in the course of things! There's instructions to fix it here; if they don't make any sense, let me know and I can probably guide you through the process that fixes it.

If you do not use Greasemonkey for anything else, I recommend the Stylish extension method over GreaseMonkey; I've gotten the impression it is more efficient. That's another avenue you can take.

This is a little late, but thanks for this script. I really hated running into the nav bar:)

Glad to help!

Oh bless! I've been using a custom style sheet to get rid of the hideous ad on top of Yahoo!Mail for ages, but somehow never compiled in my head that I could use it for LJ too...

It gets even better in Opera 9, where you can have site-specific preferences. :D I made an lj.css stylesheet and associated it with LJ.

In either Opera, I prefer to put the custom css on top of the author one in author mode. (Because most of the time I want to see the journals as their owners intended them to be, minus annoying things like the strip. Only if a journal has over-obnoxious colours and fonts I select User Mode to get rid of the "Page Style Sheet".)

I pointed kyrielle to this page, and she had the following to say:

"Thank you!!! Wish I could comment there - I have IE 6 which shows as untested, and it worked beautifully.

I still don't understand why the option to force it on all your viewers exists in LJ, but at least now it doesn't affect me. :)

Thank you again."

So, it works in IE 6, hooray! And you have another satisfied user. :)

Yay! It works! (the GreaseMonkey script, with Firefox, German, under Windows XP)

Thank you so much for this.

For Konqueror 3.5.3 under Linux:

- Create a .css file containing the code
- Choose "Settings"/"Configure Konqueror..."/"Stylesheets"/"Use user-defined stylesheet"
- Choose the file you created
- Restart the browser.

Seems to work well. I have also added the code to my customized S2 style, so (absent a custom CSS stylesheet on the reader's end) the navigation strip shouldn't appear on my journal at all anymore, even when the reader has selected "yes" in their Livejournal configuration.

Thanks for posting this snippet.

Thanks a lot. I'm going to update our guides.

Hey! So I'm not the only freak who's got a Nav Strip-free journal. XD

The IE instructions worked great (it also works in Advant Browser). Thanks!
12th-Jul-2006 04:56 pm (UTC)
Good to know; I think we mentioned Advant Browser for its ability to block Flash after the whole malware from flash ad incident.

the userContent.css worked fine with XP Professional and Firefox

Now I'll see if I can get it to work on camino on my 10.4.7 Mac.

Any help for us folks with AOL?
12th-Jul-2006 04:53 pm (UTC)
I can try to help, but I don't have access to the AOL software, and it looks like they require an account to even access their help online.

Try looking around in the help of AOL for style sheets or CSS and you might find a section on adding user stylesheets. If you can't find anything like that, send an email to AOL's support asking about it, and they might be able to tell you.
