expressive: life's a spectrum 
Apr 19 09

A layout I made for my personal journal, but I'm sharing because I'm nice. It was loosely based on the Adobe site and I've created a few custom color schemes based on the software palette.

how to install
1. Apply any Expressive or Mixit theme. (Please note that some Expressive/Mixit themes may come with attribution images. If these show up in your layout, please comment here.)

2. Scroll down to Choose a Page Setup and select 2 Column (sidebar on left).
Define your links. These are the links that show up at the very top of the page.
Make sure any drop-down boxes are set to No, paste the code into the box, and click Save Changes.
custom color schemes
If you want to give the layout a different color scheme, replace (CTRL+H) the #0063BE (lighter color) and #22217F (darker color) in the code. Below are some suggested schemes based on Adobe's software.

#C2CD23 #72BC43 Dreamweaver

#E53039 #B10535 Flash

#FFBC00 #FD5701 Illustrator

#DB0862 #521302 InDesign

I am planning to post a tutorial for that in the near future. :)

I'll be waiting on that tutorial!

one more question. How do you get it so your moodtheme is on one side and everything else like your tags, current music, etc is lined up against it? I saw that tutorial somewhere, but can't seem to find it.

Just in case you haven't seen daemon's new post, this is the answer to your second question:



I'm waiting on the tutorial for moving the mood status stuff, too. :)
