Added: layout setting
The language file:
'river_addon:demo:title' => 'Title of the page',
'river_addon:demo:text' => '<p><a href="http://whaterveryouwant.net/">Whatever you want</a></p>
'<p><a href="http://whaterveryouwant.net/">Whatever you want 2</a></p>
'<p><a href="http://whaterveryouwant.net/">Whatever you want 3</a></p>
One more things to be perfect: be able to comment in the river entry. when some friend type in the river you can not replay in the entry you have to make another entry. there are a plugin that have this feature is rivertalk, but no have the ajax like your, maybe you can do something similar for this excelent plugin.
