Layout: Beachy Keen!

image preview | [info]tess044


Hey guys! Who makes a beach-themed layout in the middle of winter? Me, apparently LOL. It's that time... That's right, the last layout of the year. Does anyone else feel like 2017 went by really fast? (Maybe I'm just willfully blocking some things out.)

Thank you all for a wonderful start on Patreon and being so wonderful and supportive in the comments; I always enjoy talking to you guys! I can't wait to start rolling out content for 2018, so keep an eye out for a start of the year updates post during the first week of the new year!

The final layout of the year, Beachy Keen!, has a fun contained header because I realized I don't really do those very often. Additionally, this layout uses the sidebar links list to create a custom floating top nav under the header. Need options? I got your back! Choose LEFT sidebar for the demo version's page setup, RIGHT sidebar for a no sidebar version that retains the custom links list under the header, or ONE COLUMN if you don't need any of that! Enjoy, and I'll see you all in 2018! ♥

Layout Coding

Editing Guide

Paste the coding into Notepad or similar and bring up Replace All (usually Ctrl+H) to replace values quickly and easily!

Change height:400px; to your preferred size and your header will resize! After this, you may want to change padding:0 0 120px 0; to resize the gap between the header and the entries; add or subtract however much you have added or taken away from the header height. You will want to do the same to top:430px; for your links list.

This does not apply to One Column as it has no links list, and you should be able to resize just your height:400px; header height to change the header.

So I combined this layout with the cool feature from another one and came up with [info]wildandfree! I also used your Polaroid code as well, and made sure to put a credit mention in the code!
