Commonly Asked Questions


How do I add a header?
Find this:

#header {
font-family: arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif;
text-align: center;
font-size: 12pt;
font-weight: normal;
letter-spacing: -1px;
background-color: transparent;
color: #9C9C9C;
text-transform: lowercase;
line-height: 14px;
}


Replace with this:

#header {
font-family: arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif;
text-align: center;
font-size: 12pt;
font-weight: normal;
letter-spacing: -1px;
background-color: transparent;
color: #9C9C9C;
text-transform: lowercase;
line-height: 14px;
background: transparent url(URL OF IMAGE) top center no-repeat;
padding: ###px 0 0 0;
}



Change the ###s to 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.

Can I have my default userpic show up?
Sure, just find this:

.defaultuserpic img {
display: none;
}


And replace with this:

.defaultuserpic img {
padding: 5px;
background-color: #F7F7F7;
margin: 10px;
}


What if I don't want the sidebar? Can I have the layout without it?
Yep! On your main Customize page, find "Choose a Page Setup" at the bottom. Click "Apply Layout" under "1 Column (no sidebar)". Then, find the #maincontent section, and change the width from 69% to 95%. Then, change margin: 3px 50px 0 4px; to margin: 3px auto 0 auto;.

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