Adding a header

I tried to design a layout it was easy to add a header image to! The layout is 700px wide by default, so I recommend you make your header image 700px wide as well. Here is a preview of the layout with a header.

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

#header {
    background-color: transparent;
    margin: 1em auto 2em;
    background-image:url(YOUR URL HERE);
    height: YOUR HEIGHT HERE;
    width: 700px;

Colors used (for easy replacing)

#f45962 · links, journal subtitle

#e15169 · link hover

#9ecf95 · date/time, reply link hover

#7cb173 · reply link

#ca0f0e · module titles, navigation hover

Lovely layout, I'm already using it and credited to you. One question though, how do I change the colors of the white-gray bars? I was going to make them a deeper gray.

Nah, I meant more like the big horizontal bars to the left and right of the journal. :o

Looking back on what I posted, I realize I can't English well!

I apologize, I mixed up my words pretty bad there :P - when I said horizontal, I meant vertical. ;a; Like the columns that are on either side of the entries.

This is just gorgeous. I am using it now and loving it! Your CSS is really clean and easy to read too - good job!

I am having a bit of trouble with the modules at the bottom. In your live preview, you have three columns of modules and also a full-justify section custom text. Mine are showing up in the first two columns only, and the custom text is not full-justify. In the customize modules section, I have them all sequentially numbered. What am I doing wrong? How do I manipulate how these modules display?

Thanks for sharing this beautiful layout, and for any help you can give!

Lovely layout!

Is there any way to put the "recent entries" etc. navigation links in the center of the strip rather than on the left, though?

Also (I'm sorry about this) a question: is there any way to get the usernames of the posters show up and not wreck the layout? I tried just removing display: none; from the CSS for .poster, but it kind of shifted everything else down.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks for looking into it! I had a bit of trouble with my reading page because I'm not used to not seeing the username text, heh. I removed the "display: none;" part anyway, even though it does look a bit wonky. In any case, this layout is too lovely to change away from just because of one quibble. :) You did a great job on it -- thanks again for sharing it!

I switched to this layout, but none of the images are working at the moment. Is it possible for you to upload them to another server?

Date: Monday, April 30th, 2012 11:45 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] septim
Oh, it's not problem! I didn't want all the images in all the layouts to be switched, just an alternate link to the images for this layout so I could upload them to my own server. But it's fine, I don't mind waiting.

I adore this layout! It fits Daryl wonderfully. Credited in profile.

I have but one question, though! How do I put the userpic outside the entries similar to this? Thank you!

Ah! Nevermind, figured it out. :>

Hey! I just noticed a thing, while going through the layout - if you go to the calender and view by subject, the links are all in white. And on a white background, it's hard to read!
