Using "Is This It?" by ~tessisamess on DW {customized}

Since I've decided to use this lovely layout by [insanejournal.com profile] tessisamess as my default RP journal theme on dreamwidth, I've made myself a little guide to installing the version I customized. This is for my personal use, but left unlocked so that I can refer to it while logged into new journals and such.

Installing Complete Style from IJ
  • Go to Your Layers.
  • Under create top-level layer, select type: layout and version: 1 then choose create.
  • Click Edit next to the newly-created layer.
  • Delete what appears in the editor and replace it with the following (Complete Style from insanejournal, fixed to support reading pages):
  • Click Save & Compile, at the very top.
  • Wait a moment for it to finish, then click Back to layers list beside it.
  • Go to Customize and choose Your Custom Layers. Select Apply Theme under the one labelled Complete Style
  • Go to Customize Your Theme and fill out according to the guide below.

  • Mood Theme: one of the bunnies usually looks nice; use on reading page
  • Navigation Strip: irrelevant, as this theme disables it

  • choose 10 entries per page for both
  • Two Column (Sidebar on Left)

  • For Custom Stylesheet, copy and paste the following.

If Using on IJ
    Since I like this layout enough, I might use it for insanejournal as well.
  • Should I do so, the last bit of coding, /* ICON REPLACEMENTS */, needs to be swapped out with the following
