How To: Adding Customized [full] CSS to Layout

This should be the same for all layouts. Please let me know if you find one that you can't apply this to.


  1. Go to http://www.insanejournal.com/customize/.[fig 1]

  2. Click on the 'Look and Feel' tab and choose your layout style and (None) as your theme and click the 'Save Changes' button at the bottom. [fig. 2]

  3. Click on the 'Custom Options' tab, then the 'Custom CSS' link. [fig. 3]

  4. Select 'No' for the 'Use layout's "Base Weblog" stylesheet, then paste in your stylesheet coding into the large text area marked 'Custom stylesheet' and click the 'Save Changes' button at the bottom. [fig. 4]



Check your journal, and it should be right!

The only exception I can think of is whenever I use a Bloggish layout, usually the designer will ask you to select 'yes' for 'Use layout's "Base Weblog'. With any other type of layout, it's always been 'no'.

:)
If they're telling you to select yes, then they aren't giving you full css, just partial overrides that work with the base weblog.

The css I offer up is full, and need the no chosen.
Oh, ok...
Thank you so much again! It looks perfect!
So glad it worked out for you!
I don't think Opal allows CSS changes on here, which is weird because we do have the option on LJ. Any way I can go around that? Thanks!
I have a tutorial up here for adding css to Opal for paid and permanent accounts.
