Night Watch (Tabula Rasa)

Title: Night Watch
Credit to: [personal profile] winterfish
Base style: Tabula Rasa
Type: Full Layout (CSS)
Best resolution: Variable width
Tested in: Firefox 3.6, IE 8, and Safari 4 on PC
Features: Works with all two and three column page setups. Entry icons on the right with username underneath.

Image Preview | Live Preview

ETA: Switched layout preview to display the sidebar on the right. Could you let me know if it isn't displaying properly, and what browser/operating system you're using. Thanks!

ETA 2: Er, nevermind! Do let me know if anything isn't displaying properly. Thanks!

Installation Instructions

1. Go to the Select Journal Style page, find the Tabula Rasa Plain layout and click "Apply theme". Also choose a Page Setup (ie. two or three column layout) by clicking the "Apply layout" button for whichever page setup you want.

2. Next, click on the "Customize Selected Theme" link to go to the Customize Journal Style page. Scroll down past the Mood Theme and Navigation options to Presentation, and under "Additional Options" make sure that "User Interaction Links", "Entry Management Links" and "Comment Management Links" are set to print as "text-only". Click Save.

3. Click on the "Custom CSS" link on the left side to go to the Custom CSS page: Deselect the ticky in "Use layout's stylesheet(s)", and copy and paste from the text box below into the Custom CSS box. Save changes, and you're done. :)

Feel free to use the stylesheet as is, or customize as you like. (Sorry it's so horribly messy. It got more and more convoluted the more I fiddled with it. o.O)

Colours Used:

(find and replace using a text editor like notepad, not microsoft word)

links #D6641D, hover #93CEDC, visited #6DB4C1

Background colour for #header and #footer: #111111

Background colours for .day-has-entries in calendars: link #E1EDEB hover #F0F6F5 (<-- also background colour in blockquotes)

Putting a banner in the header:

Paste the code from the text box below at the end of the stylesheet. Add your image's url between the brackets, and specify a height.

ETA: To get mood theme pics to show, search for and delete this line:

.metadata img {display: none;}

I love that you explained what colors you used. Most donΒ΄t do and it really helps replacing them, when you want to give your layout a personal touch.

IΒ΄m adding this post to my memories for future use.

This is so, so excellent. I am probably snagging this one, as I'm desperate for a layout I like that isn't Zesty. Thank you so much for making it all so clear and awesome!

Gorgeous, gorgeous layout. I too like that you explained what colors you used and how to replace them, and add a header to personalize it. I might use it in the future. Thank you for sharing!

Wow, this is a gorgeous layout! And thanks for explaining the colour codes! It takes so much of the guestimation out of customising.

It looks great and I've already changed my layout - it's nice and clean, but the colours really work well and bring it to life.

This is wonderful, especially because you took the time to explain the colours, how to customise them and how to add a header so very quickly. <3

I'm so glad you posted this version. It's absolutely lovely =D
If you're interested, you could still post as is, i.e CSS only, to [site community profile] dreamscapes if you don't mind it being used as an official style.
