Theme and Layout Change Tutorial

All embedded in coding from Google Fonts

Additional Layout Directions:
There are a few things you should know about this layout:

  1. I have removed the Title and Subtitle from the coding because this layout doesn't work well with them.

  2. The header image is more of just a title. This can be made in Photoshop or other image software. If you need a title I'm willing but I'd be pretty much mimicking this title image. I recommend having a background color in your image that has a low transparency. This means with a lighter image it will still be well visible.

  3. I have nothing on the sidebar currently and some of the components are turned off with display: none coding which you can remove. These would be the free blurb, page summary, calendar, and default userpic.

  4. The components of linklist and tags are still enabled and will pop up where I've put them in the layout when you select them in the sidebar customizations section of your LJ customizations. You can also adjust their locations by adjusting the px of the top and left coding lines for each component.

  5. You can find the coding for each labeled in the sidebar section.

  6. I recommend sticking with these two components, however, but if you feel so inclined you can change it up.

No problem. The only place you need to change the journal portion width is in the coding for content. That is in the General Section near the top of the coding. Looks like this:

#content {
width: 50%;
background-color: #ffffff;
float: right;
right: 0;
font-family: "Montserrat", arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 14px;
text-align: left;
padding: 25px 50px 25px 50px;
z-index: 50;

So what I would do is just adjust the width (which is for the journal portion) slightly. I was able to close the gap in my browser with 55%. But it might be 56% for you. Test the increments and see what you like the best.

Thank you. That is why I created this community. When I started at LJ I felt rather overwhelmed by all there was to learn just to get your journal layout to look the way you wanted it so I thought from all the things I learned, why not make it a little easier for everyone else. I'm glad I succeeded in that for you.

I am considering another tutorial about making your own layout but I want to find the right coding and I'm trying to figure out if I can make it into a video.
