the link to the second image doesn't work
and as I posted that it got fixed
That is a REALLY hot style!!!
Had component for about two weeks now. Check it out...
I've been using component for a while as well. Thanks, guys, it looks great!
Is it possible to modify Component so that it doesn't double-space text in entries and comments?
I am not very computer savvy but the new styles for paid LJ users are just what the doctor ordered!
i've been using component and I'm very happy with it (minus the fact that the foreground/background colors don't REALLY show up on the friends page...). don't care for Boxer too much, though I like the friends page.
one complaint...might it be possible to try out new styles and if you don't like the new one, go back to your previous one and NOT have to REcustomize everything? all my customized colors are gone!!
I've switched to S2 before and switched back and all my old overrides and stuff are still there, or do you mean not have to recostumized component?
so i'm getting frustrated with this S2 business.
i use the S2 system and select everything that I want for my journal and no matter what I get stuck with generator and the default colors. any way to fix this?
Had that problem for a little while, too. I just kept updating till it started to change my customizations, though it took awhile...
I'm confused by all the names for things you set colours for. Why can the not be the same as the ones for S1? Okay, so there's more... or maybe I'm just stupid for not knowing which bit is an accented area, or what the caption bar is. Maybe you should make an image with little arrows pointing to each section... I would be eternally grateful :)
I just want to use the S2 system with my S1 colours, but don't have the time for trial and error.

My take on the "Wai Not?"
I don't know if you've ever seen the 'guts' of an S1 style or an S2 style, but I hope this makes some sense when I finish.
At the heart of S1 is a rather primitive system. Many styles for S1 embedded the colours and changes directly in the page. This isn't the best thing to do for accessibility (I've ran across a few journals I can not read - My vision goes stupid on 6 and 8 pixel fonts), as it can disable some accessibility features (Said journals, I couldn't resize their text with my browser's magnifier).
S2, however... was built so differently that it shares way too little with S1. CSS is the order of the day in that particular house, making it much more accessible for those who may have limited vision, among other things.
Hope this makes sense.
As per the S1 -> S2 switch, I might be able to help you. :)
I'll take some time now, to see if I can make your S1 colours work in S2, and if you like it, I can help you put this all in place. :)

Those styles look pretty nice, and the S2 system seems very cool.
My only beef is that changes are commited to the journal straight away without allowing you to preview your new but unfinished look before going live.
Just a question... how do you add Link navagation to the Boxer layout, like in the picture above?
I love component! But Ive got a problem.. See, I made a custom layout for my journal, and now I cant choose Component for my friends page. Is there a way around this? The custom layous is the old system and component, of course, is the new system.. so I cant choose one from the other.
I was just complaining about the same problem in my journal, I hope there is a way to keep my custome layout for my journal and change my friend's page to one of the new lsyouts. :O)
Component totally rawks! Gonna have lots of fun tweaking things around and making it more my own for a while. Kudos on a wonderful interface and set-up. Gives me some ideas for my own work as well. Uber props!
When I went to "Edit Customizations" page, I see "layout" as black font colour with black tab, so I can't see the tab.
When I click on the next tab, was the black tab supposed to move to the next one? If not, that's ok. Otherwise it's broken. :)
In the Colors page, the "Choose" button displays the color page, but nothing is showing up.
Other than that, looks great!
The choose button gives a gradient image on the right but doesn't show the main map of colors, for me. When I try to "load image":
The requested URL '/img/colorpicker/spectrum.png' resolves to a file which is marked executable but is not a CGI file; retrieving it is forbidden.
changemod that sucker!
Alright! Those look great!
Select Yes to make the links component visible. Values for the links should be added under the Links tab.
I love the Component style, but where do I find this 'links tab'?
I'm sure I'm missing something really easy but I can't seem to find the damn thing.
That's the same problem I'm having. I was hoping someone had already posted how to add them. Oh well, I can wait.
is there any way to change the back ground of the user pic color on the boxer format?
also, any way to change the comment verbiage?
I too can not seem to add/view links.
Keep up the great work, I'm loving them.

s2 is seriously the most confusingest thing ever. s1 was so much easier to tweak
I found S2 very easy to use without having to dive in HTML and tweak them.
I really like the new layouts too. Where can I add more links, or am I missing something. Will some of the classic global overrides still take effect, such as have my pages fade in and out? Or customizing my scroll bar?

I really like the look of component. I switched over my LJ to S2 last night, but I kept the Generator layout since I couldn't get the colors to come out right in component intially. I do appreciate the more descriptive text for choosing what color goes where (instead of "weak accent" and the like), but it would be great if there was a test view where you could see the colors as you applied them and before committing them.
