Hi Tess! First let me say that you are hands down my favorite layout creator and I'm so glad to see you're still churning out amazingness.

I had a question about the sticky note function in a layout. I'm looking at the Pointedly layout at the moment and am considering using it for a journal and I'm curious if I can hardcode some HTML in there directly from the layout code.

I ask because putting it in the sticky note field on the customize journal page seems to do the standard IJ auto-formatting and spaces it out horribly, and there's no 'disable auto-format' for that field, and it ignores the lj-raw command.

Specifically I'm interested in throwing in a table (I tried DIVs too but it doesn't seem to space right there either).

If you've got any thoughts or tips, I'd love to hear them!

Thanks ever so much,

Matt

Aw, hi, thank you! <3

Basically, with the sticky note, you can code things inside of it, but you have to take out any line breaks you don't want to show up since there's no way to disable to auto-formatting in the sticky. But if you're okay with doing that, you can even just do div classes and put the actual styling in with the layout CSS to save room in the sticky note!

So say you wanted:
<div style="background:#000;text-align:center;padding:10px;">Some Text Here</div>

You'd be able to just do this in the sticky:
<div class="name">Some Text Here</div>

And this in the layout coding:
.name{background:#000;text-align:center;padding:10px;}

I... can't believe I didn't think to remove the line breaks. *shame*

But to see I can put class definitions in the code and call it out in the customization is something I did not know before, yay for learning new things!

Thanks, Tess, you're the best :D
