I've been getting a lot of the same questions about the component layouts I've made, so I decided to make a public post with all those questions and all the answers.


How do I see the icon that the community member's used instead of the community's default icon?

set use_shared_pic = true;


Set it to false.

How can enable/disable my profile?
Find the following in your set commands (user layer) and set it to true or false:


set show_profile = true;


Setting it to "true" keeps it there. Setting it to "false" removes it.

How can enable/disable my calendar?
Find the following in your set commands (user layer) and set it to true or false:


set show_calendar = true;


Setting it to "true" keeps it there. Setting it to "false" removes it.

How can enable/disable my page summary?
Find the following in your set commands (user layer) and set it to true or false:


set show_summary = false;


Setting it to "true" keeps it there. Setting it to "false" removes it.

How can enable/disable my links?
Find the following in your set commands (user layer) and set it to true or false:


set show_links = true;


Setting it to "true" keeps it there. Setting it to "false" removes it.

How can enable/disable my free text?
Find the following in your set commands (user layer) and set it to true or false:


set show_free_text = true;


Setting it to "true" keeps it there. Setting it to "false" removes it.

How can disable all of my components?
Find the following in your set commands (user layer) and set all of them to false:


set comp_navbar = true;
set show_profile = true;
set show_free_text = true;
set show_links = true;
set show_summary = true;
set show_calendar = true;


Or find the following in your set commands (user layer) and delete the left or right:

set comp_state = "left";

Unless the style is using the comps on both sides coding. In which case you need to delete the coding starting with this:

###################################
#    SQUARE COMPS ON BOTH SIDES   #
# kunzite1, component-help/589908 #
# overrides page_layout(Page p)   #
###################################


and ends with this:

# End the body section and end the html document
"""
</body>
</html>
""";
}


How do I move my navigation to the top/side?


set comp_navbar = false;


Setting it to "false" keeps the navigation on the top. Setting it to "true" keeps it on the side.

Can I remove the banner you have and replace with a different one?
Yes, you can. Just remember, adding your name to the banner I made and included in the style does not make it a different completely banner. Neither does resizing it, cropping it, changing the colors, or erasing some part of it.

You may also have to find the credit in the style, and delete the "the banner was made by iq80, using a screen cap mady by thisperson) because that part no longer is true.

You can also change the colors to match the new banner/header.

Where to place the url for the header in the style?
Find this in your theme layer (in older styles, it will be in the user layer):

function page_layout(Page p) {

  # Set this to the width that you want both the navbar (if it exists) and the whole journal to be

  # may be percentage (70%) or number of pixels (700px).

  var string k1Swidth      = "613px";

  var string k1Sheader_url = "URL GOES HERE"; # optional header image url

  var string k1Sheader_alt = "$p.journal.username [at] livejournal [dot] com"; # optional header image alt text


How do I change the width of my journal?
Find this in your theme layer (in older styles, it will be in the user layer):

function page_layout(Page p) {

  # Set this to the width that you want both the navbar (if it exists) and the whole journal to be

  # may be percentage (70%) or number of pixels (700px).

  var string k1Swidth      = "613px";

  var string k1Sheader_url = "URL GOES HERE"; # optional header image url

  var string k1Sheader_alt = "$p.journal.username [at] livejournal [dot] com"; # optional header image alt text


To have it match up with the header (it should already be, unless you've changed it it to something new), add 13 to the width of the new header, and it should all match up. Depending on your screen resolution. (I'm on 1024x768.)

This layout spazzes of FireFox, Mozilla, Opera, etc!
You'll have to figure that one out on your own, I have Internet Explorer.

Will you install my layout for me?
Yep. Couple things though:

  • Try figuring it out on your own, using this tutorial.
  • DO NOT show me your password in the comments of any entry, that is so beyond dangerous.
  • Change your password to something temporary, email it to me and I'll set it up for you.

    Why isn't the header showing up?
    Probably because you haven't uploaded one yet. Or because you haven't replaced http://www.yourimagehost.com/BANNERNAMEHERE1.jpg with an actual image url yet. I suggest uploading it to Scrapbook or Photobucket.

    Hey, I love your layouts, but I don't have a paid account. Can you make me a free one?
    No. It's not that I don't want, too. It's that I don't know how. I used to, but I lost it somewhere down the line. If you want a free layout, try free_stylin. They know what they're doing. ;)

    Any other questions that should be added to the list?

    That's the point of the layout. The banner only shows up on the recent entries page.
