#008 { How to install layout & questions post  
This post includes a detailed explanation how to use a layout and it's also the place where you can ask question if problems regarding the layout occur.

{ How to Install:
#Download the rar-file from mediafire
{ not necessary for the layouts from post 014! #Open the .doc-file and enter the images (mostly header and wallpaper)
  Good hosts are either tinypic.com and photobucket.com }
#Go to "Select journal Style". The layouts I make usually are for the "Flexible Squares" styles, so enter this name in the searching bar and click "Apply Theme". This link will change to "customize".
Before you click on it, scroll down and select "Ad Placement: Horizontal" and "2 Column (sidebar on right)".Now scroll up again and click on "customize". It will lead you to
#"Customize Journal Style". Click on "Custom CSS" and change all settings to "no". Enter the CSS code in the text box and click "Save Changes".
#If you choose a layout without a sidebar go now to the Sidebar-section. It's important to switch all options to "no". If you don't do this, the layout will look odd. "Save changes" & ...

{ Questions:
001: The advertisment is in the sidebar, how do I remove it?
 # go to Select journal Style and switch the "Ad Placement:" option to "Horizontal". Now it will be over the header!

002: The header won't show up? How does this come?
 # Try uploading on tinypic.com, it most likely work then!

003: I chose a layout without sidebar but it looks weird, what should I do?
#Go to the Sidebar-section and change all options to "no" and it will look normal.

Feel free to ask further questions regarding the use of layouts here♥
I will re-post them here and they'll may be help for others in the future as well :3

for the image, you only put the link under the .headerimage right? and what do you mean by adding link to the separator? ^^ oh! and I'm trying to use ur newest hey say best layout.

Thanks in advance!! xD

Yes, you just put the link from the header to the ("'header here') section in the code =3
You pretty much do the same for the separator imagie, you just have to scroll down a bit (using open office writer it was on the 6th page, I guess it's the same for most programmes :3 )
I hope this explained your question! ♥

I totally overread that you were going to use one of the hsj layouts!
The hsj layouts don't have a separator image, so that's irrelevant for you! So you just have to enter the header image link into the code (^ w ^)

I followed all the directions but I can't get the header to show...I uploaded it into tinypic as well....I'm talking about the newest HSB one

I'm glad it worked now!
Did you make sure to switch all options on the "custom css" side to "no"? your journal page still shows these blue area around the sidebar and the entries which often happens if one of the options still shows "yes" =3

hey, I can't get the header image to show? I'm confused, I'm using the tsuyoshi one you just made

That's weird! Are you sure you followed all steps from the introduction in this post?
You could also try to upload the header image on your own server and put it into the ccs code (instead of the header image I used which was uploaded on tinypic )

I just changed my layout to the HSB one you made...and when you hover the mouse over links the pointer shows a question mark, is it okay if I change it? It kind of bugs me. XD

lj user and lj comm image won't show up, what should I do?
thanks in advance

They are not meant to show up :3
If you want them to show, go to the bottom of the code to "User, Community, Protected icons". You then have to change
width: 0;
height: 0;
width: 17px;
height: 17px;
(three times). they now should show :3
