TO ANYONE WHO MAKES LAYOUTS!! [Jun. 3rd, 2006|10:37 am]
Amazing Layouts Only

[ex_true_saph812]
I am looking for a person who can make me a layout. Actually the LAYOUT I have is already made... BUT here is the problem... IT is in S1. I have tried to dabble a bit in S2, I've joined the communities and such and I'm struggling to get what I want to work! MEH!

(In fact, I have already tried to post this request in a few layout communities... but they keep deleting my request and I'm not even sure where to post it, which is why I am hoping that someone will see this and take me up on my offer... if you know someone who would be interested post and refer them to me... )

Anyhow, I also have very limited time on my hands too, so that is probably adding to my struggle. It is taking too long...

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAKE ON THIS PROJECT... TURNING A LAYOUT I MADE FROM S1 to S2 I WILL PAY IN PAID ACCOUNT TIME! (as in I will make a gift purchase to the journal of your choice... it will be a gift for your wonderful and needed help...)

NO FREAKING JOKE HERE PEOPLE! I AM ABSOLUTELY SERIOUS!

Just post to this post and let me know and we will work out the details! I will then add you to my friends list and we will go from there...

Okay... the layout is already in S1... it isn't too complicated... check out true_saphira

It is the account that I renamed... which is why this one says ex... yadda yadda. Just changed a few weeks ago. Anyhow, I want to be able to put that layout into S2. Go ahead and check it out and tell me what you think.

Thanks for checking it out btw.

Can I have the codes as well to get a better look for it? You can just email them to me at:
doll_parts_x@sbcglobal.net and then I'll get working on it right away.

Codes? As in the Style info? All the information I put into the style to make it pop up like the layout is? Or do you want me to make the style public and give you the numbers so you can view that?

All of the overrides. So whatever you put in the large box under the customize journal area (under the 'custom options' tab) just copy and email them to me and you're done :D

http://amandatester2.livejournal.com/ that's what I have so far. Can you take a look at it? Because of the limitations in the s2 style it's going to be a tad different from what you already have, but this is pretty close. Tell me what you think so far so I know if I'm going in the right direction of making this :D

*nods*

It's working. And you are right there seems to be a lot of limitations with s2, or are you not complete in your adjustments yet?

I could probably work the middle graphic that has "my life, my space, my style" so that it has the two moving star bar graphics on one graphic... I'll play around with them this afternoon if I have a chance, so you may not even have to worry about those in there at all. Less complications the better I'm sure. Any adjustments like that and all, I can do, it's all the code stuff in S2 at least that is completely foreign to me. hehehe

The bar across the top doesn't have the little heart graphics in it... would it work better of it was an image map? I can whip up a graphic with all that? Anyhow, if you see any way around stuff to make other stuff work... just lemme know.

Again thank you for doing this... I'm still good on my word for giving paid account time to the account of your choice. When this is done and I'm satisfied, you lemme know and I'll gift ya! =D

Well, there are a lot of limitations with the s2 style as well as it's up sides but I'm not completely done either :D

I have the animation shops and all those goodies so I could do that header with the sparkly thingies but I'm not too sure about the little hearts because of the way it is, but I'll look into it a bit more and tell you if it can or can't be done for sure.

But thanks for the feedback so far, I'll finish the rest of it asap :D

Minor adjustments:

I don't know if you noticed but the hearts are actual links... is there anyway to put them as links? Also the hearts are coming up really weird and not in line... I thought it was just my browser so I tried several and they are not lining up... (Safari, Camino, and Internet Explorer all have them out of synch instead of a line.)

Also is there a way to change "my site, Recent Entries, Archive, Friends, User Info" all to the personalized links that I have on my page too... and even add the bottom links as well?

I think I'll probably tweek the graphic and the starline... just because I want them as smooth as possible. Will the top box adjust to whatever size that graphic is even if it is bigger slightly than what is currently there?

I'm assuming that I can put in my own "leave comments" personalization and background colors the way I'd like... right?

Is there a way to center the whole thing?

There are a few other little things that I'd like to see if it can be changed... but there are a few things I'm not sure I can live without so I'm trying to decide if I really want to go to S2 or not...

Re: Minor adjustments:

Yes, you can change what the navigation AND comment links say (I can show you how to do that) but I can't add the bottom line for the navigation.

I can't put the hearts as the actual links because when I tried, it came up showing the rather than the image itself. So the hearts are actually part of the header image as well as the starline. I just made a huge animation of them to make one image so it would look similar to what you had.

I'm not too sure why the hearts are looking funny! They're aligned on mine. And I use IE, so I don't know why it isn't working especially seeing as it's on the header. :(

I can also play around with the alignment some more. When I was working on it earlier this was as good as I could get, but maybe I'll find something which will work.

AND, I also have another style I can do which I personally like better. I didn't use it because the entries aren't separated which you had so I figured you wanted it. (It's more of a long line like the layout I have is.) I think it looks much nicer. I'll give you an example of that later, just in case you might like that better.

I'm gonna have to come back to this later tonight... I've got a artistic deadline that I'm working on right now...If I can get that done in the next two hours... I'll have some time to devote to playing around with some of these graphics.

Thanks for working on this for me. If you are anything like me with the arts... it's a life calling. =D

You rock!

I think that I will stay with S1. Just the limitations and all in S2... I don't know if I would really be satisfied with the S2 layout... and I don't think that having tags is that big of a reason to mess up what I already like.

I REALLY REALLY appreciate all that you have done so far though. I don't mean to dis you and what you've done so far. You put some time and love into doing what you did... and I really appreciate it. If I ever change my mind I will definitely come back to you!

Thank you for everything you've done!

Well thank you for getting back to me, I was a bit worried you wouldn't respond =]

It's really no problem, I'm glad I could help.

Re: You rock!

Sorry it has taken me a bit to get back to you but...

Yes, I'd like to have Tags in S1... is there a way to use them in S1 so that they appear and work functionally like they do in S2? So far all I have is "tags" available on one of the little heart graphics I have on my top display. But it would be uber cool if I could get them to display on each of the entries... possibly even have them look like the same layout...

I'd love the details to that!
