Step by Step Instructions on How to Use the Layout

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I add a header?
Add this at the bottom:

.headerimage {
position: relative;
margin: 0 auto 0 auto;
width: ###px;
height: ###px;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-image: url(URL OF IMAGE HERE);

Change the height and width tags to match 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 should work. If not, try decreasing the width of #maincontent by a few pixels.

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 {
display: none;

And replace it with this:

.defaultuserpic {
margin: 10px auto;
background-color: #FAFAFA;
padding: 5px;

Can I not have my mood theme image show up?
Sure! Just add this:

.currentmood img {display: none;}

I have a Plus account. What can I do about the ads?
On the Style page, clear the section "Background color of the outer table". You can change where the ads are placed on your Customize page. Any placement works, though I find Between Entries is the least noticeable.

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

Credit to the amazing prior for the tiny icons!
