smooth sailing: moderne





UPDATE JULY 6, 2010: Added a new minimalist icon set that better matches the layout. If you want to install it in your layout, simply scroll down to the "Optional" section of the instructions.

I was really touched by all the welcome back messages on the last layout, seriously. ;; Thank you so much for all of your support. As a way of showing that I whipped up another layout! Apologies if you aren't a big fan of this minimalist stuff (or if you don't have a 1200px+ wide monitor, for that matter), but hey -- this one has a banner option. 8)b Enjoy!

how to install
1. Apply any Smooth Sailing theme.

2. Scroll down to Choose a Page Setup and select 2 Column (sidebar on left).
Make sure Userinfo Position in Entries and Userinfo Position in Comments (if using custom comment pages) is set to Left Side of Entry Text.
Paste the code into its respective boxes:

Format for Date and Time (Recent/Friends/Entry/Reply page) and Format for Date and Time (Day page only)
IF YOU ARE USING THE BANNER VERSION:
Scroll down to Free Text #2 Position and set the drop down box to any unoccupied position; it doesn't matter which.

See "Add your banner image" below for further instructions.

IF YOU ARE USING THE NO-BANNER VERSION:
Nothing more needs to be done, just rearrange your sidebar widgets as you please. :)
Make sure any drop-down boxes are set to No, paste the code into the box, and click Save Changes.

add your banner image
Find http://i50.tinypic.com/jkj9lt.jpg in the CSS and replace it with the URL of your own 680x140 image.
minimalist icons

NEW: I recently acquired a new set of icons that better matches this layout's minimalist look. If you'd like to replace them, simply paste the following code at the end of your stylesheet.



You can also go in and manually replace the old user icon code yourself.
