Fix Broken Style Imports

Some imported styles from insanejournal -- such as Bloggish from this tutorial -- rely upon assets from non-secure pages. This isn't an issue half the time you're browsing dreamwidth, but occasionally blogs are displayed through https... which means those assets flat out cannot be imported and your theme breaks.

Luckily, there's an easy fix, as I went and made a quick and dirty tumblr theme for myself that uses the base-weblog style so that I wouldn't be breaking the TOS by uploading the asset to tumblr. Here's how to fix those broken styles using that .css file:

Fixing IJ Layout Images on Dreamwidth

If you've installed a layout meant for IJ onto DW, this is necessary to make the layout appear properly. It feels like a lot of work, but in the end it's not really that much.

Unfortunately, there's several different methods used and I'm only familiar with two of them. The same principle applies to layouts from livejournal, but will be more manual. Since those are so rare, I'm not including those in the guide.
