  hi! i just joined-i'm becca. in case my username didn't indicate otherwise. this place excites me-i was searching for layout type journals and this one looked cool so i joined.

i have a few questions that i'd LOVE if anyone could answer for me-

1. does anyone know how to get the page transitions to be cool shapes, like instead of a box or something, (i think its transition #1?), have it be a star shape, or just fade, or anything? i've seen cool transitions on a lot of people's LJs and can't figure out how.

2. how do you make your livejournal entries transparent? i know of a code, except it makes your userpic dissapear when you hover over the friends/info/calendar links, or the other way around. on the diy1-3 preview journals, they had transparent backgrounds, and so does this community's layout, and it didn't happen, so i was wondering what code you guys used. my journal setup is generator, idk if it's just the setup i used, or the code, or what.

3. on the preview diy1-3 things, when you hover over the comment links, it shows the background of the livejournal. how do you do that?

mainly i just care about #2. but if anyone can answer anything for me i'd be eternally grateful.

thanks!

CONTEST... NUMERO 2

mood: chipper
Ok, I was going to make a prize banner for the last contest so I could announce the winner, but surrealreality was impatient (you know I love you, Ninja!) so I'll do that later and post the new contest now.

Prizes: Winner banner (as always) and one request of your choice: banner, icon, or layout!

The Challenge: I want a summer layout, with matching/accompanying user pic. Pull out all of your tricks! Here are the rules though: You must do all alterations to graphics/backgrounds/user pics. NO BASES! Also, your layout must have the theme of a "Summer Song". For example, I used Margaritaville for my layout (this means you can still use Margaritaville, but you can't use my background pic).

Have fun!
spermeister

P.S. Can I have a few of you post simple overrides? They don't have to look cool or be super nifty, some of the members want to tinker with overrides and I want them to have simple ones to play with. Thanks!

Beach/Tropical layouts... just make sure to change all the username parts to your lj name. I think I have them all labled "diy_test1"... if it's not that exactly, it's close to that.
Enjoy!

Shoot me now! I need to fix some coding for the layouts because it came out funny when I posted. I'm off to learn how to make scroll boxes now. I hope to have this fixed soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hello you fine and talented people!  *see what I did there with the sucking up?  Yeah.*

I have a request...or rather a suggestion, for a layout theme...I'd like to see something beach-like, perhaps a sunset over the ocean.  Layout, Friends only banner and user pics would be great. 

Oh, and I guess I should introduce myself.

I can customize these for any sorority. I just need your sorority colors, flower, gem, motto, whatever, and your chapter name, school, sorority name, pledge class and semester... basically, you tell me what you want on there, and I'll make it for you.

your lovely co-mod here<3

Hi everyone! 

I just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Meghan, playababi .  I am a co-mod here at diy_layouts.  I have a couple of different rules for my posts, and such.  Please follow them:

  • Credit for Icons in your icon keywords, and credit all other graphics in your userinfo.
  • Do not hotlink off of my photobucket.  Save it to your own server.  I can't post graphics, if my bandwidth exceeds.
  • Comment on everything that you take, with the number of the graphic.  I number them for a reason.
  • I will do random checks to make sure that you have credited, and uploaded to your own server.  Photobucket is a great site for image hosting.

I have more rules then spermeister , but that is because I have had alot of my graphics stolen lately.  It does take time to make these, and just remember it's not somthing we have to do for you.  With that being said, there are examples of my work under the cut.  I mostly make icons, and friends only banners, but once in a while I do other things.  Pretty much everything I make is celebrity based, or text only.  However, I take requests and will do pretty  much whatever you ask.   Just remember, I have only been making graphics for about a month.

There are alot of things under the cut, dial-up users beware.
