Q: How Do I use these Overrides?
A: GO TO MODIFY JOURNAL


Journal Options

From here you can customize the look of your LiveJournal pages. If you're really curious how everything works, read the developer information. Otherwise, we'll assume you're satisfied with the basic options below:


Page Layout Style
Setting this controls how your journal is laid out on the screen. Your account type only permits you to select between a small number of default styles.

Available Styles
Most Recent Events
Friends View
Calendar
Day View

^ HAVE EVERYTHING SET TO GENERATOR

Color Theme
Here you can select what color theme will be applied to the layout options you pick above. Or, if you don't like the provided colors, specify your own!


Default Theme:



Custom Colors:
Usage AreaColor
(#rrggbb or name)
Page background
Page text
Page link
Page visited link
Page active link
Page emphasized text
Page title
Weak accent
Text on weak accent
Strong accent
Text on strong accent
Stronger accent
Text on stronger accent

^ LEAVE BLANK UNLESS YOUR TOLD TO CHANGE THE COLORS:)

Friends View
Here are options that control how your friends page looks.

Use shared journal pictures instead of poster's user picture
 This option controls what picture you see on your friends page when a user posts in a shared or community journal. If you check it, then you'll see the community's icon. If you leave it unchecked, then you'll see the user icon of the person who's actually posting.



Style Overrides
If you are happy with the journal layout options above, you can ignore this section. This is for tweaking very specific things about your page layout. See What are overrides? How do they work? for an overview, and visit the developer section for details. Also note that overrides are for overriding only one or two things about a style. If you'd like to override everything, you need to create your own style. For an overview of how to create a style, see How do I make a custom style?



THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU TYPE YOUR JOURNAL!!


Please note that not all style variables can be overridden. See the documentation for more details.
Also, be aware that if you attempt to edit your overrides and you have used a tag that is not allowed in the head of the document – such as <DIV>, <SPAN>, <IMG>, and many other tags – that tag will be stripped. The only HTML elements that can be used in the *_HEAD overrides are those elements that are valid in the head of a HTML document. This is limited to <title>, <base>, <style>, <link>, and <meta>.

Mood Icons
When posting journal entries you can also specify your current mood. Different users have submitted different sets of mood icons that you can use. Or, select "None" if you don't want any pictures beside your moods. (or, you don't even have to use the Current Mood feature at all.)

Select mood icon set:

^ PICK A MOOD OF YOUR CHOICE

Done?
When done, press the "Save Changes" button below...

Q: How do I not have a default Icon?
A:
In most of my layouts you CANNOT have a deafult icon, or it'll float in your layout.
This is how to fix this problem.

Go to > Your Pictures
You should see something like this at the bottom of your page:


1.) you need to have your icon. You can either take it from a url of a site or browse from your computer.

2.) After you chose your icon, you'll see KEYWORDS, Put a name for the icon in the blank box.

3.) Then you'll see "Make this your default picture"
MAKE SURE THAT THE BOX IS NOT CHECKED!!! LEAVE IT BLANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4.) Click Proceed.


After you proceed you'll see your icons and what not.
Then you should see this:



CLICK IT!!!

and save the settings. Now you dont have a default icon.

Now when you leave a comment it should look like this: (This is my OWN personal example.



Where it says "PICTURE" open it up and chose the icon you want on that comment, and your done.

Okay, hypothetical question before I join:

How do you feel about me taking a premade layout, and changing it to something entirely different, and still being credited.

For example, let's say you had a layout of a tree, and I liked the way it was setup, but wanted to change the picture to a cat, and keep the same basic coding. You'd be credited in the userinfo of the journal as 'coding source' or 'original layout design by'.

If that's a problem, I probably won't bother, but I figured I'd ask -- I love having layouts, and have friends who can help me with PAID account layouts, but I'm poor and I suck, so I have to make free account ones, and I'm not very good at it.

Thanks for your time.
