smooth sailing: aperture (v.2)





I gave the code for this layout a major rehaul, in addition to an updated design. The old post and codes will be deleted.

IMPORTANT! The layout will not display properly if you don't set both a title and a subtitle. It is possible to edit the layout so you won't need either of these elements, but I cannot help you.
