LiveJournal Layout - Game of Thrones: Kings Landing  
~Please Comment if Taking
~Please Credit janine42584 if using




Made this awhile back, posting because GoT season 2 is almost here!!!! That and I was going to ponder what the point is of having a chair in a bathroom ... but I've decided to scratch that part of the post :P

*It's been awhile since I posted a layout ... if there are problems with anything please let me know*

NEW INSTRUCTIONS


CODE STEP 1:
Copy Code into Notepad (or some other program similar)

There are four images in this layout:
BODYURL
HEADERURL
SIDEBARURL
USERPICURL

CODE STEP 2:
HOST THESE IMAGES TO YOUR OWN SERVER (Photobuck // ImageShack // TinyPic // etc.)
***If you use Photobucket: Please make sure that the dropdown under upload file that says "Reduce to:" is set to either 1024x768 or 1MB... otherwise photobucket WILL RESIZE your images and the layout will not work properly.***

CODE STEP 3:
Find and replace each new URL with their corrisponding name.
Example: BODYURL --> Go to Edit -> Replace: "Find What" would be BODYURL and "replace with" would be your new URL -> Click "Replace All" (do this for each image url)

BLURB BOX
This isn't needed, but it will make the blurb text look better (more centered)
1. Copy Code to Notepad
2. Replace "BLURB TEXT HERE" with whatever you want it to say in the box
3. Copy Code (with text) and paste in blurb box


USING THE OVERRIDE CODE

1. Click "Journal Style"
2. In the cute little search thing type "flexible squares"
3. Click the "Apply Theme" button for any theme (I'm clicking "Black, White, and Red All Over," but honesly I don't believe it matters which theme you pick so long as it's a flexible squares one)
4. Click "Customize" Under the theme
5. Click the last link in this new section "Custom CSS"
6. Make sure all dropdown boxes say "NO"
7. Copy and paste your code with your image URLs
8. Click "Save Changes" and there you have it!

IMPORTANT - In order to use the layout below you must have a "Default User Pic" something written in your "Blurb Box" a list of "Links" and "Tags"

1. Click "Journal Style"
2. In the cute little search thing type "flexible squares"
3. Click the "Apply Theme" button for any theme (I'm clicking "Black, White, and Red All Over," but honesly I don't believe it matters which theme you pick so long as it's a flexible squares one)
4. At the bottom of the page select "2 Column (sidebar on left)"
5. If you have a basic/plus account - make sure ad placement is "Horizontal"
6. Click "Customize Selected Theme"
7. Under "Customize Your Theme" Select "Sidebar"
8. Make sure ALL dropdowns in the first section "Setup" say "Yes"
9. Scroll Down to the Bottom where is says "Ordering"
10. Your Ordering should be as such:
Default Userpic
Blurb
Link List
Tags
Page Summary
Calendar
11. Click "Save Changes"
12. Now select "Custom CSS" (the last link on the side list)

I'm so glad you like! There was a mixup with the header/sidebar images, they were switched ... I've updated the URL links with the correct stuff. So sorry for the confusion. Knew when I posted that there would be a mistake on my end :)

Honestly don't know. Work is about to pick up and be crazy for the next couple months, but I hope to have time to make some stuff ... just never really know until I sit down to make something what will inspire me :)

I fell in love!
Toke this and using it right now! ><
Thought I didn't like the way the Navigation Strip looked with the layout so I changed the colors a bit, I hope you don't mind.
If you do, tell me I'll get it back ^_^
