Frequently Asked Questions
Please read these frequently asked questions before asking your question. Questions will be added as they are asked.

G E N E R A L
1. Can I change the header on one of your layouts?
Yes, I usually just us a header for the example or to help me make the layout. You can use any layout you wish.

2. Can I share your layouts with others?
You can direct people to this community and tell anyone you found your layout here.

3. What if I like a layout but I want something to be changed?
If you are able to change something, such as the link colors, go for it. I also have coding you can add to your layouts. If you are unsure how to change something ask for my help in the layouts post. I'm more than willing to help you out.

4. At the bottom of your Layouts it says "No Hotlinking Images," what does that mean?
Hotlinking is basically when you use my images link so that you aren't storing the image in your own PhotoBucket or Image Storage place online. Many of you don't realize you are doing something that is rather taboo online which is fine. I just ask that you stop doing it once it is realized. The reason this is a problem is that places like PhotoBucket only give us so much bandwidth to display our images and artwork. So if you use it all up because you've got tons of people visiting your journal, my account at PhotoBucket can be turned off for a time causing me and people looking for icons and layouts at lot of problems.

5. Do you have banners so I can advertise for this group?
Yes. Here they are...




L A Y O U T
1. I'm having trouble changing my layout. I am inserting the code but the header isn't coming up.
This is probably because the code you are using doesn't actually have the header image code in it. You are supposed to save the header in your PhotoBucket (or other image place) and insert the direct link on your own.

2. I have inserted the header image link but my image is coming up smaller than it should.
See Trouble with the Header.

3. I want to use one of your layouts but I'm currently using something other than Flexible Squares. How do I make the change?
Check out Theme and Layout Change for Beginners.

4. How do I change the titles on my Header or things like what my comment links say?
Go to the Text Section of Customize Layout Theme. You will see all the different titles you can change. For Sidebar component title changes, go to the Sidebar Section.

5. How do I customize which elements are on my sidebar and in what order? Also how do I change the titles of the elements?
To change the components on your sidebar or to change the titles for the sidebar components go to the Sidebar Section. You will find a tutorial here for further help.


C O M M E N T S
1. I'm not getting notifications of comments to my entries on my journal or on communities. What is wrong?
With changes LJ has made many of our settings have been turned off. Go to My Account Settings to makes sure all your notifications are turned on. If they are and you are still not receiving your notifications please go to LJ Support and open a support request with LJ.


If you have not found an answer to your question, please comment.

The link on your link list is fine. Usually people add it to their Friends post or their profile but as long as there is a link back it works.

Let me see what I can do about the header image.

Hi, I want to make my own layout and I was looking through the net if there were any templates of it, and I found none. I was wondering if you I may ask if you have any template of it? Or even the IDs and Classes from the CSS layout?

Thank you very much! :)

You know there was over at
http://s2flexisquares.livejournal.com/44381.html

This is the one I used for a time. I think I messed mine up by playing with the coding. I think I can fix it but I haven't tried.

Is this what you mean?

Okay so I need to know if you want me to use the banner/header you currently have?

Also is there a style of one of my journals I've made that you like?

If I've already made a style you like of there is a feature you like... let me know and I can put that in.

Hi, a few months ago you made a layout for my community camelot_drabble which I loved.

I recently took over a community and was wondering if you would are able to make a layout for it as well.
The new community is harlequinmerlin. Please :)
Jill aka Jo: Outlander: Standing Stonessireesanwar on August 17th, 2015 04:59 pm (UTC)
I can but not at this exact moment due to there being a lot on my plate. And I remember last time you had an idea what you wanted for a header. Any ideas this time?

Hia again!!

I know I always bug you, but I do LOVE your layouts.

At camelot_drabble we usually have a chirstmasy layout starting Dec 1st for the holiday fic exchange fest and a new one for the new year. We have been using the same holiday layout for 3 years and I was wondering if you have time to create us two layout. One for christmas and one for the rest of the year. If you can only do one, the holiday one.

You have free range to do what you please as far as color etc. I'm fid as long as the header has the community name.

Thanks again for your time.
Jill aka Jo: Movie: Cinderella Gus OMGsireesanwar on November 20th, 2015 06:52 pm (UTC)
Okay so I can customize one for a holiday layout but that is about all the extra time I have.

And do you want me to just make the current layout Christmas-y because I can't be sure I have the time to make once completely from scratch, which I hate to say but I've got so much going on.
Yennyyenny2206 on November 22nd, 2015 05:39 am (UTC)
Hi,

If you don't have the time I understand. I could just used the one frm last year. And when you have the time and if you want you could just make a regular year long layout.

Don't worry.

I hope all is well :)

Hi, I wonder if you could help me out - I am looking for a new layout for sgnovelreview something wider than the current one in flexible squares. Any chance you can make something for me?

I'd like a sidebar on the left, user icon on the right, floating off the side and still square. The main text area needs to be most of the space, white background and black/dark gray text and the title needs to stand out.

Colours I'm thinking blues and blacks, but it needs to represent the whole show (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis & Stargate Universe (if I must))

I love what you have with the current background design on here, the leaves here only with these two images: http://brightstyles.co.uk/SGNovel/sg1gate.png, http://brightstyles.co.uk/SGNovel/sgagate.png (I made them the same size as your leaves)

I don't have a new header, but I am looking to get one - just have to work on it.

Thank you!
