Step V: Comment Pages & Addtl Options

This theme is cosmetic and not operated to work with custom comment pages. You need to enable the site skin comment page so it doesn't look ugly; you can do this by going to:
  • Organize » Manage Account » Display
  • "Entry Page Default: Your Journal" - uncheck the box; and hit save.
For maximum appearance and capability, it is also advised that you use text interaction links instead of icon interaction links. To configure this, go to:
  • Organize » Customize Style » Presentation
  • "Select whether user interaction links are printed as text or using the available icons" » switch from icons to text-only
  • "Select whether entry management links are printed as text or using the available icons" » switch from icons to text-only
  • "Select whether comment management links are printed as text or using the available icons" » switch from icons to text-only

I actually coded this layout a few months ago but didn't like it very much, even though I was mostly done. Looking at it now, there's nothing I really dislike about it and it did what I wanted it to do. Essentially it was my remixing my old LiveJournal layout over at [livejournal.com profile] kingdra, with the navigation and the title text. Obviously it's much different both in terms of color and functionality, but the similarities I wanted to keep I think carried over pretty well.

If nothing else, my putting up this layout for use can be for posterity.
