This community is for sharing layouts and other bits of code for use on Dreamwidth.
So, please, if you like something here, feel free to take and use!
If you ever do use, please credit back to betterdolphin somewhere visible
, like in a stickied post or your user profile. If you don't know how to reference a journal on your own journal, copy and paste this:
Layout made by <user name="betterdolphin">.
Or if linking off DW:
Layout made by <a href="http://betterdolphin.dreamwidth.org/
host images on your own servers, or, if you lack that, use IMGUR
or any other host of your choice. If you use Photobucket, please keep in mind it will resize large images once in awhile, so if you uploaded one of my images and it came out small check your options and see if you can upload something at fullsize, or use another image host.
FAQQ) Can I edit/change your layouts?
Yes, you can! I highly encourage you to. However, if the resulting layout still looks like my original one, you must
still credit.Q) Can you change this in your layout for me?
No. If there's something in my layout that you want to be different than I intended it, you must change it on your own. I know not everyone knows CSS, but it's not fair to ask a layout maker how to change something they didn't intend for their layout. I'm afraid I don't have the time to help make large changes that you may want.Q) Can images be added to the headers?
A) I rarely make a layout with the thought of a large image being added to the header, if I had intended to make something like that it would have it in the codes. That doesn't mean you can't try to add one anyway, but don't be surprised if it doesn't work/you have to edit a bunch of CSS to get it to work. Like the previous question, however, I don't have the time to help you change something as massive as that.
In general, however, my layouts will have a div set up like this:
If you want to add a header you will need to add the styles to #header or #header<.inner divs. So an example that would go into your css:
) no-repeat center top;
That will put the image that's 200px wide and 100px high in the background of the inner header div, telling it to not repeat, and aligning it centered and to the top in the div. NOTE
a few of my layouts are fluid layouts, so a fixed width header like that might be off. You can also make the width/height into percentages, but your background image itself won't be fluid, so it can run the risk of being cut off or having too much blank space around it. You will also more than likely need to edit the codes that style the text in the header as well.Q) Can I redistribute your codes with my edits?
A) I don't mind if you edit my codes, but if they still bear a strong semblance/a good majority of my original code I would prefer you NOT
to redistribute it, please, even if you do credit me as the original maker. I won't go on a mad hunt if I see someone doing this, but I would prefer things to be done that way.
