Love Foolosophy
Layout Style:
Smooth Sailing
Account Type:
All Accounts
Tested in:
Firefox 5.0, Opera 9.50, Google Chrome 1.0, Internet Explorer 8 (Note: If your browser is not basic CSS3 compliant, the layout should be functional but not as pretty. Also, I make no guarantees for any version of IE, as it should be set on fire.)
Screen Resolutions:
Best in 1024x768+
Nav Bar:
No (Note: You can remove the disabling code for the navbar, but it might make the layout ugly.)
Custom Comment Pages:
Yes, please see below.

From the main LJ navigation bar:
Go to the LJ Customization Page. Make sure your journal has a SUBTITLE.
Under "2. Select a New Theme":
Enter "Smooth Sailing" in the search box and click the button. From the results, choose any Smooth Sailing theme.
Under "3. Choose a Page Setup":
Find "2 Column (sidebar on right) and click "Apply Layout." Click the "Customize Selected Theme" button on the bottom right.
Under "Display":
  • Under Presentation > Basic Options: Set "Userinfo Position in Entries" to "Right side of the entry."

  • Under Presentation > Additional Options: Set "Userinfo Position in Comments" to "Left side of the entry."

  • Click "Save Changes."
Under "Sidebar":
  • Choose no more than 3 sidebar options/boxes to display at the bottom of your layout. Make sure everything else is set to "hide." (Note: Less than 3 boxes are okay, but the layout doesn't look as polished.)

  • Click "Save Changes."
Under "Custom CSS":
  • Use layout's stylesheet(s) = Yes

  • Use layout's stylesheet(s) when including custom external stylesheet = No

  • Custom external stylesheet URL = Leave blank

  • Custom stylesheet (The big box) = Paste your selected stylesheet

How to use custom colors:
Open the "Superstar" stylesheet in Notepad or similar text editor and do a find and replace for any or all of the colors listed below:

Blue (header): #193d49
Pink (footer/sidebar): #ff2b6b
Dark Blue (links): #00041a

Make sure that any "word wrap" feature is turned off in your text editor before you copy and paste your CSS into LJ's Customization area.
Regarding additional customization:
If you know what you're doing, you're welcome to further customize this layout. Please give proper credit to circa77.
CREDIT IS REQUIRED FOR USE. It is the polite thing to do to let other people know where you got your layout. Acceptable crediting would be linking circa77 in your userinfo, or someplace obvious on your sidebar.
Regarding Support:
While I am happy to answer general questions/be reminded about things I might have missed, I DO NOT OFFER SUPPORT FOR MY LAYOUTS. Try s2smoothsailing if you need help, they have a very active, friendly community.

14th-Aug-2010 10:12 pm (UTC)
I love the idea of this! Would you consider doing one with a picture header too?
14th-Aug-2010 10:23 pm (UTC)
My main concern with adding a header is that it might squish the initial view up too much (Because of the fixed footer), but it's super simple to add your own header. I can give you the code, if you like!

Woah, that was kinda trippy. *meant the footer*

Nice idea though, might use it later. :]

I really like this, what position should I put the ads in?
Should I guess? xD

Whichever way works best for you. Horizontal works pretty well but is just a wee bit wider than the layout.
