How to use Wide Lines on your journal (version 0.9.01)
Previous Entry Next Entry


Consider this method of remaining always on the latest version of Wide Lines.

To upgrade your "Wide Lines" layout to the latest version:

1. Log in and go to your layers page.
2. In the table under "Child of layer 1: LiveJournal S2 Core, v1" there is a row with a name of "Wide Lines"; click on "Edit...".
3. Delete all of the text in the large text box shown.
4. Cut and paste all of the text from the current code link below into the large text box and click "Compile".
If this page reloads and says "No error", continue. If it gives an error, repeat steps 3 and 4 just in case a character was lost in the cut and paste, then contact me with a comment here if it continues to fail.

Code for current version

To save the "Wide Lines" layout for later use if you have never used it before:

1. Log in and go to your layers page.
2. At the bottom of the page under "Create top-level layer" select "Type: Layout" and click "Create".
3. In the table under "Child of layer 1: LiveJournal S2 Core, v1" there is now a row with a name of (None); click on "Edit...".
4. Cut and paste all of the text from the current code link above into the large text box and click "Compile".
If this page reloads and says "No error", continue. If it gives an error, repeat step 4 just in case a character was lost in the cut and paste, then contact me with a comment here if it continues to fail.

All themes created for version 0.9 will continue to work in this version.
If you are uploading "Wide Lines" for the first time, follow this link for instructions on how to upload themes for Wide Lines.

The following functions have changed:
* lay_print_cssbody()
* lay_print_cssmove()
Many thanks to livredor and gblvr for the bug reports!

To use "Wide Lines" on your livejournal:

1. After having uploaded the layout and any themes, log in and go to your customize journal page.
2. Under "Choose style system" select "New System (S2)" and click "Change".
3. Under "Step 1: Layout" select "Wide Lines" (it will be at the bottom of the drop-down box) and click "Change".
4. Under "Step 2: Customize Layout" select any theme from the "Themes" drop-down box and click "Change" (previews are not available).
5. Click "Add customizations" to tweak settings further, if desired.

For the historical record: Code for version 0.9.01 (3 May 2005). The code at this link will not change.

The one that says "current version". I should probably move the specific-version one elsewhere on the post -- I want a historical record of each release, which is why I have two links (the code in both is at the moment the same, because the current release *is* 0.9.01). Sorry for the confusion!

Hello, I am trying to use your new style and I can't get the thing to work...

Here is the error I keep getting...

S2 Compiler Output at Tue May 3 20:00:40 2005
Error compiling layer:
Compile error: : Layer is declared layout but expecting a user layer
S2::Checker, S2/Checker.pm, 330
S2::Compiler, S2/Compiler.pm, 34

Can you give me any insight? Thanks!

I suspect that in step 2 you created a user layer instead of a layout layer. Be sure that you have selected "Layout" from the drop-down under "Create top-level layer", and that in step 3 when you select this layer from the list of layers that you are choosing the newest one that is underneath "Child of layer 1: LiveJournal S2 Core, v1" (it will say "Layout" in the "Type" column). It can be confusing finding the newest layer sometimes -- I hope this solves the problem!

LOL, I figured it out after I commented - I am not playing around with getting it customized, thanks!
