layout: two versions  
I made a layout available in two versions. It's basically the same code with a different background and a few different colors. The background is by 77words (I edited it a bit to fit the layout). It works well with a header. I recommend checking the bigger preview, as the smaller preview looks a bit weird after resizing.


Bigger Image - Live Preview (Temp)


Bigger Image - No Live Preview

1. Go to Select Journal Style and choose the Flexible Squares theme.
2. Choose the following Page Setup: 2 Column (sidebar on the right)
3. Now go to Customize Journal Style.
4. Go to Custom CSS and set all drop downs to No.
5. Copy and paste the following code in the Custom Stylesheet area the version you prefer:



And that's it!
It should work fine in all browsers, but I haven't tested it on any other than IE.

You can add a header image by inserting this in the Header section:

Let me know if there's any trouble, but it should all work just fine.
Feel free to edit, but don't claim it as your own.
Credit to ablessedcurse is much appreciated.
Please remember the credit 77words for the background.
Comments make me smile!

Uh, I'm using the first one, and I've been editing the colours, but the box around the ads at the top is still the original colour, same with usernames. How do I change them? >__<; Thanks~

For the ads, you need to change it on Customize journal, not in the code. Just go to Journal -> Customize Journal Style -> Style -> and then change the color of "Background color of the outer table". That should change the color of the box around the ads.

As for the usernames, it should be the same code as for the links. Just be sure you change every link code, you might've missed one. If not, then I have no idea why it's not working.
