Customizing the sidebar image

It is easy to do! It's designed for a 250px x 150px image, so it probably won't look quite right with any other sizes.

To add the header, find these lines of code (hint: they're at the very top for easy editing) and replace YOUR URL HERE with the url of the image you want to use!

#secondary /*sidebar image */ {
background-image:url(YOUR URL HERE); 

To change the main background image, it's a similar principle. Find these lines of code, and replace with the URL of your image file. (The background can be any size!)

body /* background image */ {
background-image: url(YOUR URL HERE);

Colors used (for easy replacing)

#df1b1c · links

#ba1415 · link hover

hey, thought i should let you know the sidebar and the link/# of comments/reply links aren't working quite how they should for me. (on this journal and then i just shoved it on [personal profile] fedoras to see if it was something with the modules that i effed up) i haven't gotten around to finding and replacing anything yet, so... idk what's up with it?

I have a question!

Maybe it's just because this journal has no entries yet, but if you click and go look at it, the way her profile image, etc, shows up at the top is very strange... Is that supposed to be this way?



I added an entry to see if it would go away, and it's still at the bottom of the page - should I uncheck all modules?

I know that this layout is supposed to be a fixed width, and I'm trying to figure it out on my own, but is it possible to adjust the width of the entry and placement of the sidebar?

Hiya! I'm using your gorgeous layout on this journal (I'm an RPer, herp a derp) and I just have one question regarding the 150px x 250px. I've put a gif there for now, but I was wondering whether or not it's possible to [ut that gif and a good few others like it in a loop so that one is randomly selected every time the page is refreshed.

Is there any way to do this on dreamwidth? I hope all of this makes sensedgdfhdf

Thank you for your help and your time!

Hi there! I really love this layout and have tweaked it a bit for use on my personal journal. The only thing is, the icons seems to be resized down to 75x75 and I can't find where in the coding that is happening. Is there someway to get them to display at their original 100x100 size? Thanks!

uuuurgh sorry for yet another question, would it be possible for visited links to remain the original color instead of changing? And is it possible for the links list module to not be bulleted?

Edit: I managed to figure out how to remove edit the link colors and remove the bullets in the links list. I've tried adding padding: 0 and margin: 0 to remove the indent, but it didn't work.

Also, I noticed that there's still bullets on the icons page, for the keywords.
