001: Informative Info
EYYYYYYYYYYYY a layout! I've been meaning to make this one since like December oops but I'm sort of glad I held off for so long because it came out better than if I'd made it nine months ago, imo. Columns on the recent page, regular entries on all other views (be sure to check out the friends page because it's a lot different.) Custom header, navlinks, entry link menus, sidebars—everything, basically. This is probably my most involved free layout to date, to be honest haha.

I may do a comm-specific version of this for people's Net comms if you guys want it, just be sure to let me know if you have a MIGHTY NEED or I'll get lazy and forget lmao. Enjoy! <3

Make sure you have FIVE header pics and they are all at least 200x200 (larger is fine; they will scale automatically.) In the CSS find the following and replace the URLs:
.pics li:nth-child(1){background:url(HEADERPIC1)center;background-size:cover;}
.pics li:nth-child(2){background:url(HEADERPIC2)center;background-size:cover;}
.pics li:nth-child(3){background:url(HEADERPIC3)center;background-size:cover;}
.pics li:nth-child(4){background:url(HEADERPIC4)center;background-size:cover;}
.pics li:nth-child(5){background:url(HEADERPIC5)center;background-size:cover;}


→Custom stylesheet: Input the code above and save

005: Rules and Shit
→Please put my credit in its designated spot.
→Do not remove my credit from the CSS.
→Do not redistribute in part or in whole.
→If you break something during editing don't be scared to ask me to see what happened. Yep. That's a rule.
→If you're a maker like I am and you do something cool with this I'd really like to see it, but it's not necessary.
