Tutorial Suggestion Box  
I want to tell you how I come up with a tutorial. Someone out there asks me a question and it dawns on me that while I know what they are looking for, some of you out there may not. So a tutorial is born. If there is something you wish to know how to do comment and let me know. I'll send you to a tutorial I've already made or another tutorial will be born.

I'm also willing to hear any suggestions for making a layout do something specific (i.e. rounded userpics). Of course, I can't promise everything is possible on LJ but I can see what I can do to implement those idea in the future.

Do you have a tumblr? Do you do tumblr themes? I have a couple different tumblrs all with different themes. Once in a while I make small changes to the themes I use. Sometimes I get stuck trying to fix something the way I want it but not knowing how. Right now all my tumblrs are fine. However, I often think how awesome it would be if you could help me out the next time I get stuck on something in tumblr land.

Will you let me know if you start working with tumblr coding in the future?
A lot of LJ people left for tumblr.

I do have a tumblr account but have never messed with it because it seemed more complicated than LJ with less ability to make it look how I want (which I find important). I have been planning on looking around there and should I decided to make customizations I'll post links from here to where they are posted at Tumblr.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Do you fool around with Dream Width? I've been trying to get my flexible square layouts to work over there nothing I've tried so far has worked. I have no idea what to do, I'd like to see a tutorial on using flexible square layouts on DW!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on June 16th, 2013 07:10 pm (UTC)
I haven't done much coding at dream width though I do know how to move Flexible Squares over to Dreamwidth. I'll do a tutorial on that. Great suggestion.

A way to fix the blue Navigation bar at the top of the screen (Ljs navigation bar) not sure what it's called. I know it can be modified but whatever LJs messed with also messed them up. I saw a tut on it long ago, but it no longer works with the new Ljs code. anyway a tutorial on that would be nice.

Last time I pester you I swear it! (シ_ _)シ How to embedding fonts in your journal posts? Also do you know how to use a hide / show feature on profile pages? I tried to use Ljs cuts but they don’t work on profiles. ヾ(´・ _ ・`。)ノ”
Jill aka Jo: Fringe: Lincoln agentsireesanwar on July 18th, 2013 06:47 pm (UTC)
Okay I've been researching these. The embedding of fonts isn't really possible because you don't have a server here and you technically could host a font elsewhere and link to it but you don't really mess with specific page coding which you would need to do to embed at link at LJ. So that is a no go.

This is possible if you use the spoiler coding in your profile. The things is that once someone opens it they have to refresh to close it. I'll make a post.

Footer Image?
Is there a code to put an image at the bottom of a layout like the header? (lets call it a footer lol)
Jill aka Josireesanwar on October 25th, 2013 09:21 pm (UTC)
Re: Footer Image?
That is a good question. I'd have to look into that. I'm sure you can make a background for a footer but I don't know if you can make and independent image.

Hey! I just found this community in the hopes of achieving a particular style. I'd love to have a banner image at the top but not have it scroll with the rest of the content. The image is stationary and the entries scroll behind it. Possible? I've been looking all over for a tutorial on what to do and this looks like the place to find if it's doable. Thanks!
Jill aka Jo: Outlander: Lady Broch Tuarachsireesanwar on November 4th, 2013 08:00 am (UTC)
I do believe it is possible though I'll have to mess around a bit to manage it. I do remember that making a banner or rather header image fixed will prevent it from scrolling but you may have to start the maincontent of the layout with a wide margin at top because it is likely to want to tuck under the image since it is effectively being removed from the structure of the layout.

If that makes any sense at all.

I'll get on this.

Hi again!

I hope all is well with you and that you are still around. As always I come to you first for a layout as I love them.

I created a community call mcu_avengers and I am in need of a layout badly.

I don't really care about colors, headers and styles. The only little thing I ask is that the header have the comm name and the tiny marvel symbol on it a corner. Please help me!
Jill aka Jo: TL: New Librarians walkingsireesanwar on April 17th, 2017 09:38 pm (UTC)
I am still around but do not have the time to customize layouts for journals. You are welcome to take an existing layout and make any changes you want.
