Layout: Woodlands

image preview | [info]tess036


Hey guys! This is a little different from my other free layouts, but it's a celebration! It's my favorite month of the year and we're very close to hitting my second to last goal on Patreon—how cool is that?! Have I reminded you all that you're great lately? Because you absolutely are!

I'm so excited about today's layout! I could go on about the features, but why don't you go ahead and click through the the preview and see for yourself! All sidebar and quote features are easy to disable, so go as minimal as you like! Enjoy! ♥

Layout Coding

Installation Guide

♡ Go to Basics and choose S2 for your style system, then save.
♡ Fill in your links list if desired, then save. Remember to use short link titles (if you don't want links, just skip this step and the linkbar will disable for you.)
♡ Go to Look and Feel, choose Complete Style, then save.
♡ Go to Custom Options and choose the following options:
Layout Type: Two column (Sidebar on left)
Disable customized comment pages for your journal: Yes
Navlink titles: Recent, Archive, Friends, Profile
Link text to leave a comment: +
Link text to read comments: 1 // #
Text to edit an entry: Edit
Text to edit tags for an entry: Tags
♡ Fill in sticky note if desired. If you don't do this the gap will disappear, so if you'd like the scroll-to-view function without a quote, fill in your sticky with: <span id="invis">.</span>
Body of custom sidebar module: <h1>TITLE</h1><h2>SUBTITLE</h2> (or you can choose to leave this blank)
Body of second custom sidebar module: Your blurb text if desired. Leaving this blank will disable the block

"Take me," it says. "Take me and use me."

Also, it says: "WTF!?!1 You did this with COMPLETE STYLE?"

All kidding aside, this is freakin' IMMENSE! I LOVE IT.

I'm having a tiny issue - I have a graphic link for the sideimg in the code, but it's not showing up. ;(

I'm sure its something I've missed.

I'm a long time lurker of your absolutely amazing page and layouts but I wanted to share one of my edited versions of your fantastic layout with you! Thank you so much for all the work you do making these! :D

You rock! I'm thinking about using this for a game I'm working on, but when I view the page on my iPhone the background deforms. I'm wondering what I did to screw things up?

Using here for potential new character, and aside from the bg the only things i really tweaked was the height of the sticky note and putting in the icon replacements i like using.

the default colouring works surprisingly well with the background that i felt i didn't need to change it at all.

This is stunning, I love it! I'm using it here on this journal. :)

This is such a gorgeous layout! I was due for a revamp of my personal journal and this one did the trick, thank you. ♥ (It's this journal if you want to peek!)

I absolutely adore this layout, and am having THE HARDEST time transferring it over to Dreamwidth, even with the custom layer. Does it work differently somehow?
