Help Desk Take #2  
This community is to help me and others find ways to make their journals look how we want them too.

I wouldn't say I'm an expert at messing with layouts though I have figured out a lot about Flexible Squares. If you have a question please feel free to ask me by commenting below.

Couple Rules:
  1. And example of your problem or what you want done to your journal.
  2. Sometimes it can take me a little while to find the information asked for, so please be patient.
  3. I don't do slash-y type things (ie headers). I can still provide you with a layout but then header would have to come from somewhere else.
  4. I'm not currently taking requests for requests but I'm more than willing to help you figure out problems with coding.
LJ is dropping the ball a little and so community moderators aren't getting their comments. So if you don't hear back from me in a few days head over HERE to let me know if you need any help.

request
I've recently created a new journal and right now it is completely blank! I will be upgrading it in about two weeks to a paid account but I really would love a custom layout for it. I think flexible squares is the best layout option and would love to have a Colby Granger themed layout.

This community is perfect for any images that could be used.

http://community.livejournal.com/savecolby/tag/picspam

I particularly love some of the images from this one
http://community.livejournal.com/savecolby/521939.html#cutid1
and
http://www.dylanbruno-online.net/photos/displayimage.php?pid=6084&fullsize=1
and
http://www.dylanbruno-online.net/photos/displayimage.php?album=60&pos=41
and
http://www.dylanbruno-online.net/photos/displayimage.php?album=60&pos=39

Though anything really from this site from season 3 and above are pretty awesome.

http://www.dylanbruno-online.net/photos/index.php

I just want the it to be a clear picture and maybe 2 or 3 put together but I don't want a cluster of face shots. If that makes sense.

I'll be using the layout for my writing and I like dark colors. Reds, blacks, blues.

I really love all of your stuff it is truly amazing what you can do and I hope I am requesting at the right place and that your still accepting requests.

Oh and for whatever banner you come up with I would like to have something like this somewhere on it...

Re: request
Is he in danger of getting kicked off Numb3rs? I haven't watched the show in a while but I kind of hope he stays.

Anyways, I'm willing to make you a layout. In fact, I've been working on one and I'm going to try that one out for you. It is dark so I thought it might work.

I think I know what you want header wise. I'll work on something and see what I can come up with. I found a couple other pictures besides the ones you sent that are great so we'll see what we can do.

Thanks. I try. Once I get the right header I will put your logo on it.

Hey. I was wondering if you could do a layout and header for me. I was wanting something with Cote de Pablo and then with a layout that would match the header. I would also like the header to include my username and perhaps some text. If you need me to I could probably provide some pictures to use for the header, though I'm not sure if I could find pics that are of high enough quality. Your help would be greatly appreciated and of course I would credit you.

Please and thank you.

Hello! I'm new here in lj so I still suck at these things :(

I just want to ask how can you place an lj user in the sidebar, like for example, I want to credit the lj user for making my layout :)

Just like this :) --> http://www.mediafire.com/i/?z0baqbiiqbdtfs3

Thank you so much :)
Jill aka Jo: Stock: by Anton Tang Yellow Flowerssireesanwar on October 28th, 2010 06:08 pm (UTC)
Where did you grab this image from? I would love to go to the journal and see it and possibly look at their coding (which I can figure out on my own).

Thanks.

Carbonelcarbonel on December 1st, 2010 06:41 pm (UTC)
Hi, there. I found you by Googling, so I hope this is the right place.

I have a permanent paid account, and for the last few years I've been using Autumn, based on Expressive by Taylor Savvy. I don't love it, but I needed to switch to S2 in a hurry because I wanted to be able to uncompress comments, and it's been readable, if a bit smaller font than I'd consider ideal.

A couple of days ago, the font changed. It's still san-serif (again, not ideal for me), but it's smaller and looks almost dot-matrixy, like the old AppleWriter fonts. No one else seems to have had this problem, including someone who's using the same layout I am.

So the simple question is, do you know what might have caused the font change, and how can I fix it? If the designer changed his or her original style, would it propagate through to what I'm using?

The more complex question is, how hard is it to tweak a layout? What I'd really like is the same layout with a) Georgia font at 10 pt and b) a slightly narrower column because I keep my browser at about 2/3 of the screen width and the basic layout is a bit too wide.

(Also, LJ suddenly stopped sending me notifications of comments as of a couple of weeks ago, but I have no idea who I can ask about fixing that. Just sayin'.)

Any help gratefully appreciated.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 1st, 2010 09:48 pm (UTC)
I'm very willing to help but it might take me a few days as I'm dealing with my kitty who is really sick and I might lose her. I'll be back though.

1. I was using your newest layout with the Castle header, which is lovely.
My problem is that every computer monitor I use is giganimous and therefore I like my layouts to be at least 900px because it makes it easier on my eyes. I tried changing the width and such in the CSS codes but it messed up the layout so that the entries were far lower than they should have been. Any help?
Jill aka Jo: FF: Captain Speakingsireesanwar on March 8th, 2011 12:39 am (UTC)
So you want me to get you coding that extends the layout to the 900px width. I can do that. Give me a minute.

Hey, I am being a total pest after saying i wouldn't be,

What I really want to do is add a few more links into the header navigation, where archive, info and all that sit. I can't figure out how to do it. i know WHERE to do it but the how escapes me....
Jill aka Jo: BBT: Hit Me Amysireesanwar on November 4th, 2011 04:58 pm (UTC)
That is part of the custom layer system. http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/layers.bml

I have two sections of links. The first one is for before my "home page" link and the others are at the end of all the links.
*angi_is_altered on December 20th, 2011 10:09 am (UTC)
Would you create a winter theme for me,somewhat like that layout I have now? Could you use this as a header and the colours along with black as the colors?

Edited at 2011-12-21 10:28 am (UTC)
Jill aka Josireesanwar on December 21st, 2011 06:43 pm (UTC)
I can try. So you are thinking much like you already have only with different colors and a header? So full page or would you like something that isn't quite full page?

I'm currently working on something width is 80% of the browser over at workshop_rees. I can put the sidebar on the side for you rather than up top because I don't think it works well with the percentage sizing of the journal.

Also, could you maybe post a public post so I can view the way your current posts look?

I'm going to be bugging you a lot because I'm a perfectionist and I want it to be exactly what you want. ;-)

Okay so I think I've solved this which you can see over at workshop_rees. There is even a post with your adjusted coding which you can replace in your Custom CSS to impliment. I took the liberty of helping you with the tiny icons which are all messed up because of LJ.

If you have any trouble let me know.

I was wonder if you could create for me a layout that has the moving parts with a sort of anime/ocean/tattoo feel.

I have some images to add if you can.
