Hello! I have a few questions, and just a warning, I'm very new to S2. I've already found a style sheet, and I plan on going from there customization wise. But, I still have a few issues, and if anyone could help or point in the direction of a tutorial, I would so appreciate it! =]

Btw, I'm a paid member. So, if that means anything.



1. So, I hear if you want to start from scratch, its best to have no preset style. How do you set your style to "none" if that's what you need to do?

2. How do you go about "making your own style." I've been to the layers section, and titled one for my own, but how do I put it to use?



Thanks so much! =] <3

In case you missed it on the profile page and sticky post, there are several posts under the tutorial and beginner's guide tags. However, I should probably ask what you mean by "trying to make your own style". It sounds like you created a custom theme layer at the layers page, but that's not required if all you want to do is create a style based on the existing Expressive/Mixit framework. If that's the case, all you need to do is select "Unstyled Expressive" from the Choose Journal Style page, then apply style changes through custom CSS. No need to mess around with layers.

I'll warn you, though, that unless you're very experienced with CSS, it can quickly get complicated and frustrating. There are some starter stylesheets posted in this community, or I can suggest alternative themes to the LJ-supplied ones that are made by third parties.

Does this help you out?
