→ How to Credit:
- Please credit me in your profile/sidebar/public entry.
layout by visualwit
-Copy the above text into your blurb/profile.
- I don't do requests, as I have no real time commitment for them. I will occasionally ask for suggestions, but again, it's at my discretion.
→ How to install a layout (flexible squares):
- Customize: Make sure your style system is S2!
- Look & Feel: Set layout to Flexible Squares.
- Sidebar: Make sure sidebar is shown.
- Custom CSS: Set all the 3 drop down boxes to No.
- Copy & paste into Custom Stylesheet the overrides.
→ Can I edit the stylesheet?
- Certainly! As long as you credit me, and keep the header at the top of each stylesheet :)
- Keep in mind that after you customize the stylesheet, I won't be available for tweak tips and help.
→ How to customize links on the sidebar:
- Customize here.
→ How to change colors:
- Color codes look like this: "#948664". Replace this 6 digit hex-code with the code of your choice.
- I highly recommend the "FIND & REPLACE" function as you do this.
- HERE are some hex-codes for some commonly used colors.
→ How to remove ads:
- Upgrade to a paid account or Downgrade to a basic account.
- Unfortunately, LJ's ads are some of the most persistent.
- Another thing: I'm a plus account user. A plus account user with Adblock. That being said, I can't test for ads. I do however, always advise on how to make adds as innocuous as possible on your journal page.
FOR SIDEBARS: Make ads VERTICAL. Also make sure you have at least three modules enabled in the sidebar (ex: blurb, links, tags).
FOR TOPBARS: Make ads HORIZONTAL. Then make ads BETWEEN ENTRIES. It is very important that you do this, in this order.
If the layout does not have a sidebar/topbar, make ads VERTICAL. Poof! Ads disappear. LJ doesn't like when you do this though, don't get caught.
→ How to add a header:
- Find this code (or something similar in the css):
- Edit accordingly.
- Keep in mind that I do NOT test headers on my layouts. This is primarily because I like leaving the layout as customizable as possible. You're always free to add a header (and I'll warn you otherwise (e.g., pattern based layouts where the layout is the header image).
