Layout: Trefoil

image preview | [info]tess011


Hey guys! I'm SO excited to release this layout; it's one I've been wanting to do for a while now. Trefoil is special in that it's my first three column layout, made specifically with game comms in mind. What makes it so game-friendly? It separates all your sidebar content for you! Information on the left and tags on the right, since most games have extensive tags lists. (This would honestly be great for any account that employs lots of stacking tags, like icon communities.)

Additionally, I've coded this layout to support three column (content in middle), both sidebar versions, AND no sidebar, which makes it great for matching your mod account to your comunities, because you'll only need to edit the styling once; the page setup is done in the first dropdown! Enjoy! ♥
