Step by Step Instructions on How to Use the Layout

1. Go to your Customize page. Make sure you have some sort of title and subtitle. You can hide this later, but you must have something defined for each for the layout to properly work!
2. If you are using S1, switch to S2.
3. Under "Select a New Theme", type "Smooth Sailing" in the Search box.
4. Click "Apply Theme" directly underneath the first search result.
5. Scroll down to "Choose a Page Setup", and click "Apply Layout" under "2 Column (sidebar on left)".
6. Click the button that says "Customize Selected Theme".
7. Click "Sidebar" on the left. Here you can decide what you would like to be displayed in the sidebar. You can choose any number or combination of these to be displayed. Remember, to customize the links, click "Links List".
8. Click "Custom CSS" on the left. Change "Use layout's stylesheet(s)" to No. This is extremely important!
9. Copy and paste the following into the custom stylesheet box and click "Save Changes":




10. Go to your Manage Profile page. Under Bio, add the following:

Commonly Asked Questions


How do I add a section to the sidebar where I can type something?
Click the Sidebar tab, under Custom Options. If you scroll down a little, there will be a box entitled "Free Text Sidebox Text". Type whatever you want there, and title it. Then, change the "Free Text Position" to a number that is not already used.

How do I add a link list like in the preview?
Click the Sidebar tab, under Custom Options. Make sure the "Links Visibility" is set to a number that is not already used. Then, head on over here to customize your links.

How do I change my title/subtitle?
It's under the Basics tab on your Customize page.

What if I want to have a title/subtitle, but don't want it showing up on my journal layout?
Find this:

.header-title {
font-family: \"Lucida Sans Unicode\", tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif;
font-size: 30px;
color: #ffffff;
text-transform: uppercase;
padding: 0px 20px 0px 20px;
}

.header-subtitle {
color: #FDE7EE;
font-family: \"Lucida Sans Unicode\", tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif;
font-size: 24px;
padding: 0px 24px 0px 24px;
text-transform: lowercase;
}


And replace with this:

.header-title {
font-family: \"Lucida Sans Unicode\", tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif;
font-size: 30px;
color: #EE125B;
text-transform: uppercase;
padding: 0px 20px 0px 20px;
}

.header-subtitle {
color: #EE125B;
font-family: \"Lucida Sans Unicode\", tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif;
font-size: 24px;
padding: 0px 24px 0px 24px;
text-transform: lowercase;
}


How do I add a header?
Find this:

body {
font-family: tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 7pt;
margin: 0px;
background-color: #ffffff;
color: #EE125B;
}


And replace with this:

body {
font-family: tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 7pt;
margin: 0px;
background-color: #ffffff;
color: #EE125B;
background-image: url(URL OF YOUR IMAGE HERE);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top center;
margin-top: ###px;
}


Change the ### to match the height of your image. You'll need to upload your image to the internet. I suggest tinypic.com.

My entries are starting halfway down the page!
You have a wide image somewhere. Go lj-cut this, and it will work.

Can I edit the colours, etc.?
Sure, if you give me credit for the base code!

My layout looks all messed up?!
99% of the time, making sure you have set "Use layout's stylesheet(s)" to No will fix this.

I asked you a question, and you still haven't answered it!
If the layout is 3+ weeks old, I generally don't check the comments every day. I tend to go through them on Friday/Saturday nights once a week answering questions, so it may take a little time. Please be patient!

If you have any questions concerning the layout, feel free to ask. Also, PLEASE comment if you decide to use this! Thank you.
