Layout: Lost in Translation  
OK, so this is supposed to be penderies' layout request, who wanted a "nature-y minimalistic theme". (Hope you like it!) "Lost in Translation" is inspired by one of sireesanwar's latest layouts, Oasis. Yep, I really really liked it.
With this layout, I've experimented new CSS techniques: the navigation is actually hidden under the LJ control strip and will only appear when scrolling the page down. The link list trick was the most difficult one to pull off. You don't have to enable it if you don't want to though.

PS: the second version of this layout is actually meant for you, wildling.

010 - Preview

010. Layout - Lost in Translation
↳ Live [ 1 / 2 ] ▪ Code [ 1 / 2 ]

S2 Flexible Squares.
Basic, plus and paid.
Best view with Firefox.
Custom comment pages, navigation and sidebar.
Title, entry date, mood themes and everything in the sidebar except for the blurb and the link list.

「 Select Journal Style 」

Apply any S2 Flexible Squares layout (except Circular and Circular Brown).

Scroll down to Choose a Page Setup: set the ads to horizontal or between entries, and select 2 Column (sidebar on left).

「 Text 」

Under Navigation, replace the Recent Entries text with Recent only.

「 Sidebar 」

Choose the following ordering: Default Userpic, Blurb, Link List.

「 Custom CSS 」

Set all drop-down boxes to NO and paste the code. Save changes.

「 Replace the Sidebar Picture 」

In the Global section, find this:

Replace the current URL with your picture URL. The recommended picture size is 1280x1920px.

「 Replace the Link List 」

If you want the links in the sidebar's link list to show up as in the preview, replace each of your links' text with I., II., III., etc.

Paste this code at the end of the CSS stylesheet for each link you have:

Replace ? with the number of your link (1, 2, 3, etc.), and instead of Text, enter the text as you want it to appear when hovering the link.

THANK YOU! (#゚ロ゚#) I'm really glad you like it.
I actually changed the sidebar picture several times because I couldn't make up my mind. Feel free to change it if you want.

I will use this! Just a one question: How I add custom moodtheme for this? and what size this http://i.imgur.com/WGtKFYJ.gif sidebar gif have to be?

And I'm very sorry that I was bothered to you.

Thank you for using it!

I do not recommend using a custom mood theme with this layout, that's why I've disabled this option. But if you really want it, you'll need to find this bit of code in the CSS stylesheet (it's in the "Date, Subject, Currents" section):
.meta-mood-img {
    display: none;
Replace display: none; with margin-right: 2px; and it should do the trick!

I'm not sure I understand your question.
(1) Do you want to use this picture as a full sidebar picture? In that case, your picture isn't big enough. The recommended picture size is actually 1280x1920px, so that it can fit most screen resolutions.
(2) Or, do you want to use this picture in the sidebar's blurb? In that case, there is no problem. The picture height doesn't matter, but its width shouldn't exceed 210px.

This is a great layout! Thank you for sharing! One thing tho, I'm having trouble with replacing the link list...no matter what I do I can't get the hover to work right. I don't know if I'm adding the CSS wrong or what, but I can't get it to work. Please help?

Thanks! :)
ニン: Iwaizumi Hajimeneen on May 13th, 2017 12:21 pm (UTC)
Well, thank you. ♥
Looking at your source code, the reason it's not working is that you've added the CSS incorrectly. I'm sorry, it's my fault. Maybe I wasn't clear enough when I explained that part.

I don't know which links you want to add so I'm just guessing here.
First, you need to replace each of your links' text with I., II., III., etc. You'll end up with something like this.
Then back at your CSS stylesheet, please copy/paste the line of code provided above for each link you have, so that it will look like this:
#sidebar_linklist .sbaritem:nth-child(1) a:hover:after {
    content: 'People';
#sidebar_linklist .sbaritem:nth-child(2) a:hover:after {
    content: 'Icons';
#sidebar_linklist .sbaritem:nth-child(3) a:hover:after {
    content: 'Comms';

And you're done! If you still have questions, do not hesitate to ask me. :)
