Installing S2 Codes and Using Public Layers

Ever wish you could use Flexible Squares, Smooth Sailing, MixIt, etc. layout codes, but you CAN'T because IJ doesn't have them? Here's the work around...

The following is Tutorial for creating a public S2 layout or theme. It is followed by a tutorial for using S2 style layer and theme IDs for your journal layout. Note that on Insanejournal this will only work for PAID ACCOUNT USERS. On Scribbld, it's another story. This tutorial was originally written for Scribbld and there might be some discrepancies in the screenshots because of this, but I will try to answer any questions that you may have.

Part 1: Creating Public S2 Layouts and Themes )

Part 2: Using Public IDs for S2 Styles and Themes )

Feel free to hit me up with questions.

ETA: If you want to do Part #1 for any Layout besides Flexible Squares, you're going to have compiling issues and unless you know your way around the code, you won't be able to fix it. HOWEVER, if you would like to use, say, a MixIt or Smooth Sailing layout, I am working on getting Public Layer IDs for working versions of these Layouts. You can actually see MixIt in action right now, with CSS customization from ~thefulcrum on Livejournal, on my journal [info]wastintime. The Public Layer ID is #141191 and it IS public so you should be able to use it in Part #2 above.

If there are other layouts besides Flexible Squares and MixIt that you would like for me to setup as Public IDs, please, let me know and I will get on it. Your list of options is here.
