CSS Code
InsaneJournal Cascading Style Sheet



LiveJournal Cascading Style Sheet



*Remember, the Cascading Style Sheets only have the name of the images but no direct address to show them in your journal.
You must upload them to a server or file storage and replace them into the css to get them to work.*



For Paid/Permanent Accounts
If you wish to have tags, extra textbox and metadata function to work in your journal, please click here for code.

Images
If using, please don't hotlink. Upload to another storage online, try photobucket or imageshack.

On each image link, right click [Save target as] or [Save Link as] to your computer (downloading) then upload them to a server or personal storage to use.


Main Images
banner | logo | calendar flower | entry flower | bullet | sidebar container image | sidebar container top image | background body image

Mini Images
lj user image | lj community image | newspaper image | privacy image : friends lock | privacy image | previous | memories | tell a friend | edit tags | edit entry | next | track | screen | unscreen | disconnect |freeze | delete




Optional
download baroque the zip file includes: a html file with css and images.
Note: The link will go to Megaupload. There is a 45 second wait to non-members.


Credit
If you keep the image in the layout (logo), then it isn't necessary to have a link in the sidebar. However, if you wish to remove the the image then I would appreciate it.

Questions
If you have questions, please ask in comments. I'll try to get to you. If you are not part of InsaneJournal, please leave a name so I'll at least know who you are. :)


Note
If you see a staggered gradation in the images in your layout, which might result from your computer saving the images as .bmp only, I learned from [info]carriep63 that it is most likely due to the need to clean out your temporary internet files.
