dresden_watch New Layout  
Well I've figured out how to change from the generic Generator look to this Black "Flexible Squares" design. I hope you guys weren't too attached to the last look, but I personally like this one better.

I'm still looking for anyone who's a designer that wants to jazz this place up. Maybe implement a header, anyone know how to do that? Also how do you add stuff to the side bar like tags lists etc etc?

Anyway I'd also like to introduce (although I'm sure everyone knows already) dresden_watch's newest mod liewiththetruth. Who's been doing an EXCELLENT Job!

For those who have joined, thanks for joining, lets spread the Harry joy :D

It does look better, Flexible Squares looks a lot cleaner than the Generator.

The area where you can change the layout to Flexible Squares, go there, then to Custom Options then Sidebar and then there will be a whole bunch of options there for the Sidebar, one of which is the option to show your tags in the sidebar. You can also set the positions and everything for the sidebar, and change other stuff for it too.

I've also got a CSS code to add a header for Flexible Squares, I'll make it a bit neater than what I'm using and give it to you.

If you want, I could also make a header? Just let me know what all you want on it, colour scheme, etc. and I can :)

Ohh nice nice... I'm going to have a go at it. Are you interested in becoming a mantainer/mod as well? You can play around with the settings and graphics of the place a bit later maybe in the weekend.

As for the header, I've seen one by realtanala here:
No 34 that I'm currently talking to her to modify and use as our header. If doesn't come through then maybe you could do it?

Well if you need any help with the coding and settings, then alright. Either way this is the code, in the comm's CSS you just replace the
.headerimage {

with all of this, and naturally make the changes you need :)

.headerimage {
position: center;
width: ###px; /* Width of the banner, in pixels */
height: ###px; /* Height of the banner, in pixels */
margin-left: auto; /* To center image leave as auto */
/* To right align leave as auto */
/* To left align change to 20px */
margin-right: auto; /* To center image leave as auto */
/* To right align change to 20px */
margin-bottom: 0px; /* Space between header and journal */
background-image: url(http://); /* Header image URL */
background-repeat: no-repeat;

You should be able to find the CSS in the same area as the Sidebar customizations.

Dresden icons? Fantastic! I've been looking for some forever! That's an awesome header! I hope it all works out!

*l* Okay, well I'll add the tags to the sidebar, and when you have the header, just give me the url and I'll add it to the layout :)
