LJ Valentine

Tags: , ,
It's a bit early, but I decided to do a Valentine LJ layout. I'm trying Nebula because bratanimus went to it and I really liked some of the stuff on her LJ. Thus far, I've only made the modifications that I can do with a free account. There are a few more things I'll change, but those require the paid account and more time so I'll worry about them later. Let me know if you spot any problems or have trouble reading anything around here (I'm still undecided about the colors).

And since I wanted a post that said something other than "come check out my new layout," I bring you a Valentine Meme:

Your Candy Heart Says "First Kiss"

You're a true romantic who brings an innocent hope to each new relationship.
You see the good in every person you date, and you relish each step of falling in love.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a romantic dinner your sweetie cooks for you

Your flirting style: friendly and sweet

What turns you off: cynics who don't believe in romance

Why you're hot: you always keep the romance alive
What Does Your Candy Heart Say?
Feeling: happy
Exploring: Barnes and Noble at New Town
Listening: Piped in Muzac

Woo! I like it! The colors are really nice. And I like the see-through effect.

I still haven't had time to put all your suggestions to use yet on my LJ; my husband and I have been in Greensboro, NC, clearing out some more of my Mom's stuff (she passed away in July). It's a long process. I did manage to change the look of my Friends Page. And I'm going to tweak the other aspects using the codes you gave to me. I'm really liking Nebula so far.

I have some thoughts about your parents'/your family situation which I'll try to post later on if I have time at work today. :)

Thanks :) There are a lot of things about Nebula that I'm really digging. I may stick with it, even after V. Day. I'd just move my other color scheme into it. It might come down to whether or not I can get my multi-tiered tag list to translate into Nebula. I think I'll be able to... but I won't know until it actually happens.

I've made a couple of the paid account changes now (put the words no subject if someone doesn't have one so the friends' colors will still show up on the friends page and moved the metadata below the text). There are still a few I want to do but I really should get some real work done.

I know this has been a tough time for you. My sister's fiance's mom died on Christmas Day an they've been going through her stuff and the like and it is very painful for all of them. I wish you all the best with all of it.

Have funning playing with the layout. If there is anything at all you can imagine that you'd like to see, let me know and I can figure out how to do it if it is doable.

"My sister's fiance's mom died on Christmas Day"

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry. There's just no getting around it; it's very very hard. :(

" If there is anything at all you can imagine that you'd like to see, let me know and I can figure out how to do it if it is doable."

I feel really lame asking this, but I can't figure out how to add other links. I've got the one link to fanfic.net for my fics. But I wanted to add a link for redandthewolf, which is a Remus/Lily community that jdbracknell and I just started, and also pulpingfictions, which she and mrstater started. Any hints?

Re: Adding links - it all depends on how exactly you want them added.

If you want them up with the Navigation Links (Recent, Archive, Friends, etc.) that would take a bit of work and a paid account. Fortunately, I doubt that is the best way or what you had in mind. If you want something like what I've got, where there is the Navigation Links in one bit and other links under their own headings in their own box, that is fairly simple. Only caveat is I don't remember if it will display above or below the Summary box.

All you have to do to get as many links as you want is go to Custom Options -> Presentation and make sure it says "Yes" next to display link list. Then go here and create the links. If you enter text without a web address, you'll get a header (like where mine says "My FanFiction" or "General Fan Fiction Links"). If you enter text and a web address, the text will be a link to the address.

Thank you!! The links showed under the Summary box, but that's OK with me!

You are awesome. :D

I won! I got the tag page to do the multi-tiered thing!
