Oh wow I really like this one!
Sep. 5th, 2015 11:04 pm (UTC)
I love this!

You're just on a ROLL this week!

This is really nice!
Sep. 6th, 2015 12:27 am (UTC)
This is gorgeous! Definitely bookmarking for later use!
Sep. 6th, 2015 09:19 pm (UTC)
I really love this and might try applying it to this journal...

...and hope I don't mess it up. :D
Sep. 7th, 2015 06:24 am (UTC)
This is amazingly gorgeous. I love it. I'm using it at this journal, and will probably use it on others. Changed the accent color. I'd never used an S2 layout before so it took me a little while to figure out everything (i.e. things like if you don't put a title in over the "blurb" section then it doesn't have the color accented border at the top,) but well worth it. Thank you!!!

Well, I know what I'm doing with all of my journals for the rest of the week.

The hardest part will be deciding between this one or the other one you just posted. I love them both!
Sep. 9th, 2015 12:21 am (UTC)
I can't even with how amazing this is.
Sep. 12th, 2015 01:45 am (UTC)
This layout is amazing. ♥

I have a question, though! On some of my entries, for no apparent rhyme or reason, a scroll bar appears along the side (you can see it on my top entry, if you need a visual). I've tried fiddling with the code, but can't seem to figure out how to disable it. Halp, plz? :)

Hi Tess, I might be being dumb but I can't get the tags to appear? I've set them to appear but they aren't? Any ideas? I can see the coding for the tags in the CSS...
Sep. 28th, 2015 03:42 pm (UTC)
I'm having the same problem as the person above! Tags aren't showing up even though they're set to.
Oct. 8th, 2015 01:28 am (UTC)
Thirding the question about the tags! I Love this style, but I require the tags to be visible in the sidebar.
Nov. 10th, 2015 05:45 am (UTC)

is there any way to push the icon navigation over on the FP? when it's a regular journal, it's not a big deal, but the longer communities end up covering part of the text of the entry.

also, i keep trying to get it to just use candara as the main font, but it doesn't seem to be cooperating. any help would be great. thanks!

Hi! I just wanted to let you know I love this layout and I'm using it for this journal. Thanks so much!
Dec. 29th, 2015 11:48 pm (UTC)
Is there any way to adjust the width of the sidebar? Thanks for this though!
Dec. 31st, 2015 05:19 am (UTC)
Hiya - I think I've messed something up. I changed the colors and the background, but now on the sidebar part where the picture is, there's an extra gray bit that shouldn't be there, and I can't figure out how to make it go away.
Jan. 1st, 2016 08:47 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for this layout! It's gorgeous, so I'm using it for this game. I've also got the same question about a way to display the tags on the side. I'd really appreciate it!

Jan. 21st, 2016 04:51 pm (UTC)
I love this - and I totally INTENDED to keep it all modern and change up my normal flowery, vintage-y style.. And then I did this, using it for this CDJ. >>

But I like it! And I love allll your in-entry codes and I just went to town. Muahaha. THANK YOU FOR YOUR EXCELLENCE. YOU ARE EXCELLENT.
Apr. 27th, 2016 04:19 am (UTC)
Using it here! If I could figure out where to change the sidebar picture, I am clearly blind, then life would be even better for me :(
Aug. 18th, 2016 12:56 pm (UTC)
Not sure if there is a way or not, but can icons/who posted be better displayed on the main page (like they are on the friends page?)
Aug. 22nd, 2016 11:16 pm (UTC)
i'm attempting to use this journal here, but i'm having problems getting the 'blurb' & 'navigate' headers show on the sidebar. any suggestions? it's late and i'm frustrated that i didn't get it fixed before bed. :/ but hoping for some help by morning!
Apr. 22nd, 2017 01:27 pm (UTC)
A few people already asked but is there a way to display tags on the sidebar to the left?
Apr. 25th, 2017 12:51 am (UTC)


I'm new here and am having a hard time personalizing this layout..I really want to change the colors to pink and add an image in the background but am having a hard time and am struggling..can you help me?? thanks..
Jun. 6th, 2017 11:47 pm (UTC)
I love this layout, but I'm having a small issue. My sidebar gif isn't showing up and there's an extra white box in the sidebar as well. ;(
