Expressive for Scrapbook

OK, the Expressive for Scrapbook layer is now in a state where is is useable, I believe. Under the cut is instructions on how to use it. Any and all comments, requests for features, bug reports or, well, anything related to the style, comment here. If LJ wants to nick this for the site, feel free :) You can find the layer code at http://pics.livejournal.com/manage/styles/advanced/layerbrowse?id=66432. S2 people, do you think this would be suitable for general S2 communities as there don't seem to be any Scrapbook specific ones?

  1. Go to http://pics.livejournal.com/manage/styles/advanced/ and, in the Create Style text box, enter a name and click Create
  2. On the resulting page, ignore the box for Language. In the box for Layout, select [other]. In the text box which should now appear, enter 66432. Click save changes.
  3. Now go to http://pics.livejournal.com/manage/styles/. You should see your newly created style. Click on the Edit link
  4. On this page, DO NOT touch anything in the style settings bit, even though you'll see the wrong layer name here. It's a bug. As long as you don't save style settings you'll be fine. Instead, click the Customize (or Edit if you already have customizations) button in the Customize section
  5. You're now in the customization wizard. Customize to your hearts content, including choosing your theme (much easier for me to do that this way rather than in theme layers).
  6. To actually use the thing on your Scrapbook, go to http://pics.livejournal.com/manage/styles/ and click the radio button next to the name of the style you created


Using this method, you should get any updates I make to the layer automatically, which'll be nice :)

I was wondering when someone would get around to that!

This rocks. Kudos for stepping up.

Question - what about doing this for a community's scrapbook? any ideas?
Communities can't use the Scrapbook feature at all so that's a no-go - sorry.
For some reason I thought we could.. I was really hoping to post pictures of members.. I guess I'll have to do them in a post.
