Kubrick for free LJ users

kubrickKubrick is one of the most common and most popular themes for Wordpress. While there is a version for paying LiveJournal users, I have yet to see it ported for free accounts due to the limited templating options available.

So here you go, Kubrick for free users based on S2 and Smooth Sailing.

Installation:
  1. Go to the Customize Journal page.
  2. Under Basics, select the New System (S2) style system.
  3. Under Look and Feel, select the Smooth Sailing layout.
  4. Under Custom Options, click on Custom CSS. Select No for all 3 questions. Copy the following under Custom Stylesheet:
Dev Notes:
  • The stylesheet validates as CSS but it is by no means clean. I'll try to clean up the clutter some other time hehe.
  • The main text area is set at 500 pixels. Having images wider than that will ruin the layout in IE. Either a) use LJ-cuts or b) get Firefox :)
  • I tested this using Firefox and IE only so I have no idea how this looks in other browsers.
  • Images are hosted at TinyPic and downtimes may occur sporadically.
Known Issues:
  • Under your User Info, make sure you have something written under "Journal Subtitle" (even a blank space will do) or else the menu will "float."
  • The main text area is set at 500 pixels. Having images wider than that will ruin the layout in IE. Either a) use LJ-cuts or b) use another browser :)
