Layout: Is This It?

image prev | [info]tess019

001: Informative Info
*unattractive noises* I realized I don't make many layouts with this setup, so heeeere you go! The text on the image is part of the code, so you can make it say whatever you want over whatever image you want, yaaay! I thought that would be cute and I like how it came out. Enjoy! <3
002: The Layout

003: Directions
→Go to Basics, choose S2, fill in your title and subtitle if desired, then save.
→Go to Look and Feel, choose Complete Style for the layout, then save.
→Go to Custom Options, and choose the following:
→Layout Type: Two column (Sidebar on left)
→Disable customized comment pages for your journal: Yes

→Link text to leave a comment: Comment

→Body of custom sidebar module: <img src="http://25.media.tumblr.com/d8398154bb782c5c4518f51c0af325bd/tumblr_mjyz0wF0Qs1ru61nro1_500.gif"><div class="mytitle"><br>i s<br>t h i s <br>i t ?</div>
(change as desired; when editing you may want to play with the styling of .mytitle in the CSS if it's not sitting how you want it to.)

→Person to credit if you have an individually created layout: Layout by Tessisamess
→URL to link the credit to: http://tessisamess.insanejournal.com/

Hiya, IDK if you would be able to help (IJ hasn't responded). I set up this layout, which got deleted in the great IJ downtime. But now it won't let me do any custom options. I just receive "
Layer belongs to another user. 4169363 vs 4091129" as a message over and over. So it looks like... it looks now (also I cannot even change their themes for complete style to change what it looks like x.x.x.x.xx). Anyway, I really love this layout and was hoping to use it. Have you encountered / known anyone who has encountered this, or advice for what to do?

Yeah, I know exactly what you're talking about. :( I've had the error, and I know at least three other people off the top of my head who've had it as well, myself included. It's a bug left over from the blackout, and I'm not sure what to do other than wait it out.

The best I can tell with what's happening: If you changed your layout to an S2 style after 2/13 (but before the site went down), now you're locked out of editing that style on the account you switched it on. You'll be able to switch to any other S1 or S2 style on that account, but as of yet I have had absolutely no luck getting back into a style that I've been locked out of.

Obviously, that makes me pretty leery of making new S2 Complete Style layouts right now, because there's always going to be that chance someone won't be able to install it, even if it's not guaranteed.

I'm so sorry; I wish I had better news, but it's just not something I can fix or work around for you guys. I'm really hoping Squeaky fixes it, but I haven't heard anything so far.

😭😭😭 That is so sad. And okay, yeah, no, not your fault you cannot fix it, but on the plus side, now I know more. So many many thanks on at least understanding how the issue works. Aaaaaand well, if it gets fixed, I'll use this layout. If not, I guess I'll have to find something that's not a complete style. *sigh* TY again.

You're welcome! I just really wish I had a fix haha. On any account where you haven't changed the layout style since before 2/13 or changed it after the site came back (and accounts created after the site came back, of course), you should be fine to use any layout style you want without any issue, so there's that at least.

Sorry again! I know it's super frustrating, but I hope knowing what instances it's happening in so you know when to expect it helps a little. (I should probably make a post explaining what it is, now that I think about it.)

Yeah, it's way better to know and to understand. Makes me glad I asked. :))))
