Layout: Cut & Run

image preview | [info]tess051


Hey guys! It's the last resource post of the month, oh man! It's weird having it all posted so close together, right? I'm gonna get to some comment answering today, but just a heads up: The rest of the month is gonna be super busy with moving-related stuff on my end, so I probably will be really spotty on comment replies until April 1st.

An unrelated "announcement" is that I am now using a personal journal over at [info]shudder, and if you'd like to keep up with me you can feel free to add me over there for chit chat and life updates!

Cut & Run is a Generator layout with a lot of character-specific potential! It features an expanding navigation for extra links, icon links for your navigation pages, and a monochromatic design. Enjoy! ♥

Layout Coding

♡ Go to Basics and choose S1 for your style system, then save.
♡ Go to Look and Feel, choose Generator for all page views, then save.
♡ Go to Custom Options and paste the layout code, then save. Make sure you've done a replace all on the following with your information:
PAGETITLE for your journal title
<b>NAME</b> HERE for your header title
SUBTITLE for your header subtitle
SIDEIMG for your sidebar picture
DROPURL and DROPLINK for your dropdown nav (copy/paste as needed for more)
JOURNALNAME to complete your URL and activate links

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

LOKI. <3 I love this so much! I'm snagging the coding if I change out my journal for him, someday soon.

Thank you for making it!

I'd love to see this on an actual Loki journal if you ever get around to it!!

Oh wow, I am right there with you where this trash baby is concerned. IW is making me nervous AF for him.

Right now I have another of your layouts on [info]the_trickster but I will let you know when I finally do change it out! Because, gosh, thank you for making such fab layouts. This one in particular is ♥

I didn't use it for Loki (sorry! I loved the other code too much!) but I did tweak it to use for Vision: [info]vision_of_hope

As for the film? Right in the feels all OVER the place. Totally shook.

Could you explain me how to use these? *puppy eyes*

I tried this, but it didn't work...

And it didn't work... but I don't know how to add the other two properly.

Ugh- it seems to work here, but not in the actual IJ. I don't know what I'm doing wrong *cries*

Looks like it's working fine; you just don't have the link anywhere but on the friends page. For a custom sidebar to work in S1 Generator, it's actually repeated four times in the coding, so anything you do to one will need to be done to all four, one for each pageview (recent, friends, calendar, and day.) If you scroll through the layout you should see three duplicates of the sidebar. Make sure your links go into all three and you're good!

Oh! You ARE a genius! It works! ♥ Thank you so much! You Goddess of awesome layouts.

I appreciate the help a LOT. :)

No problem! ♥

Thank you! That looks awesome for Tony!

oh! I had a question on the lock and user info icons. How do I get them to be different? Right now they are the same and I really would like a small lock or something different for the friends only icon.

Sure! At the bottom of the CSS portion of your layout you'll see a section for TINYICONS. Replace that bit with this and you'll be able to change each image individually!

/*--- TINYICONS ---*/

img[src*="img/userinfo.gif"], img[src*="img/community.gif"], img[src*="img/icon_protected.gif"], img[src*="img/icon_private.gif"], img[src*="img/icon_groups.gif"]{background-size:16px!important;width:0!important;height:0!important;padding:16px 0 0 18px!important;margin-bottom:3px;}

/* user icon img */
img[src*="img/userinfo.gif"]{background:transparent url(https://i.imgur.com/YbX97SO.png)no-repeat!important;}

/* comm icon img */
img[src*="img/community.gif"]{background:transparent url(https://i.imgur.com/YbX97SO.png)no-repeat!important;}

/* custom lock icon img */
img[src*="img/icon_protected.gif"]{background:transparent url(https://i.imgur.com/YbX97SO.png)no-repeat!important;}

/* private icon img */
img[src*="img/icon_private.gif"]{background:transparent url(https://i.imgur.com/YbX97SO.png)no-repeat!important;}

/* friends lock icon img */
img[src*="img/icon_groups.gif"]{background:transparent url(https://i.imgur.com/YbX97SO.png)no-repeat!important;}
