Expand Cut Tags

What with the influx of new users, I thought a few honorable mentions, as it were, might be helpful.

Dreamwidth tags:

Rather than < lj user="handle" > it is < user name="handle" >. If you want to mention someone from a different service you can do < user name="handle" site="livejournal.com" > or insanejournal.com or archiveofourown.org. If you're crossposting, the crossposter will render all those options as appropriate html. (Example: [personal profile] branchandroot and [livejournal.com profile] branchandroot)

Shiny:

Those little arrows to the side of cut tags? Those will let you "unfold" the cut text without having to load a new page. Click them again to "fold" the cut back up. It's truly addictive.

You can merge your tags.

There is a test-version of the new entry-posting interface in progress on the latest [site community profile] dw_news post; go play with it and review it for the developers!

Journal customizing:

If you want some arrangement of columns (main and sidebar in any configuration) but want to seriously customize your backgrounds and colors and spacing and so on, you may wish to select the layout Tabula Rasa Plain. That has the really basic css for columns done already and the rest is yours to play with.

If you have found a layout you like and want to change the backgrounds and colors, select the layout and then go to "Customize Style" under "Organize" in the site menu. The sub-menu for "Style" gives you an interface for picking colors and entering background images.

If you're trying to port an S2 layout layer from LJ, make sure to make that layout layer a child of core version 1. That's the copy of LJ's S2; all the official layouts run on DW's "core version 2", which is different.
