Personal Use:
For personal use, no credit is needed although it is greatly appreciated.

Other Layout Creators:
Please do not redistribute this style sheet. In other words, please do not use this stylesheet to create other layouts and then offer them up as linkware. I do not ask credit for this template and I do not think it fair for others to take it, modify it slightly and then ask for credit themselves.

I think that is about as reasonable as one can get in the world of LJ layouts, don't you think?
I appreciate and thank you for your respect concerning this matter. Thank you.

EDIT: June 19th, 2006:
I created this css style to look a certain way. The addition of a header just pushes the whole layout down. It isn't meant to be complicated and it is offered as is. If you do not have strong css skills and just want a simple layout that allows you to add a nice header and a background, then this is a great style to use. If what you want involves changing parts of the css around to make a whole new look, I can't help you, that is something for a css community or one of the S2 communities.

Oh, please comment if you do use it! I'd like to see how many actual find this useful. Thanks!

The layout is so simply beautiful. You are like the master of making things both simple and beautiful. I... I have no words. I absolutely loved it, and I am using and crediting! =D

If I could virtually blush, I would. :) Thank you.

Using. It works beautifully. Thank you so much! :)
27th-May-2006 12:04 pm (UTC)
I'm glad! I see you're using another one of my backgrounds. :) I think that is why I like this set up so much. It is simple but can be made interesting with the right background. Thank you for commenting.

*nod* Although I've done CSS, I've never used Smooth Sailing before, but it was so easy to figure out with the comments you had in the file. :)

I had some problems with the header showing up using your instructions. I went to a help community and showed them your rules. Another person they said, had a similar problem. I thought I'd share the solution in case you want to change the instruction. :)

Here's here reply to my question:
The background problem, someone else had as well. For some reason, background-image: isn't working.

Try deleting the background-color:#ffffff; and instead of background-image: use a plain background: #ffffff url(your url) no-repeat top center; and it should show up.

It did work.

Gorgeous! I love the simplicity and the functionality! (so, so many custom layouts don't really work all that well!) Thanks so much. *g* (I may try changing colors but...eek!)
2nd-Jun-2006 12:02 am (UTC)
I'm going to try this one out. It's really nice!
6th-Jun-2006 05:06 am (UTC)
omg this is great! will use this in [Bad username: vanessaahudgens"] will credit you....um is it ok if i modify it? i won't distribute it and call it my own at all. :)
6th-Jun-2006 03:14 pm (UTC)
Feel free to modify it any way you want. I don't have the time for technical support but the whole reason I offered it up was so that people can use it in their personal journals and not have to worry about credit. :) I just don't want layout makers using it and then asking credit for it.
19th-Jun-2006 06:28 am (UTC)
I love this layout. Its so simple. I'm using it on my journal and maybe on a few coms soon. (need to talk to co mods) I changed the colors and patterns and added a header but its just what I wanted. You are credited
19th-Jun-2006 06:30 am (UTC)
btw I have a paid account and put the customizations up with the advanced customization center and as long as someone knows the print style sheet function it works fine.
19th-Jun-2006 03:26 pm (UTC)
Do you mind if I take a screen cap of your layout and use it as a reference? What you did to it was exactly what I meant about adding a header. I get some members who want to basically create a new style and don't understand, I tweaked the style sheet to look a certain way, if they want something more elaborate they're on their own. :)
19th-Jun-2006 06:41 pm (UTC)
I don't mind at all.

Hey hun, I have two quick questions:

(1) The link list that is supposed to go like this in the right hand side,
* Recent Entries
* Archive
* Friends' Entries
* User Info
* Memories

Ends up like this * Recent Entries, *Archive, etc. (see my journal)


(2) I can't find the color options in the css that change the background to the sidebar, main entry, and the bar at top. How do you change this? (see my journal if you are confused)

Thank you so much for your help and the layout!! I will definetly credit you once I switch the css to my main journal (this is just one I am testing)
21st-Jun-2006 02:35 am (UTC)
The answer to both of your questions is that you have for some reason two layouts in one style sheet. That first half of the style sheet is not my work. It looks like a modified version of the original Smooth Sailing style. Then you have my style sheet beneath it. Having two sets of css rules for the same layout in one style sheet is going to cause a lot of problems.

My suggestion would be to start over and use another copy of my style sheet and one by one implement your changes.

Thank you so much! I know I've been a complete pain but I got it to work perfectly! You are amazing.
2nd-Jul-2006 04:16 pm (UTC)
downloaded, thanks. might use it. :)
24th-Sep-2006 07:26 pm (UTC)
I've been using this layout for a little bit and I love it.
Why don't you make more? I've been to the other layout sites, but their style is so busy and distracting. Yours is just right. :o)

One question, though: Do you mind if I alter the background (with another of your creations. of course) and change the text color for fall? If not, that's fine too. I just wanted to ask before I changed it around.
29th-Sep-2006 12:40 am (UTC)
I did go ahead and change the colors after careful consideration... I've got the original style sheet saved if you'd rather I didn't make the changes. :o) Just let me know if I should change it back or not.
29th-Sep-2006 12:41 am (UTC)
No, it is really all right. I made the layout so that people can modify it and use it. :)
29th-Sep-2006 12:44 am (UTC)
Phew! I love it, which is why I wanted to modify it and keep it. :o)
6th-May-2007 02:26 pm (UTC)
I wanted to use this layout but the download link doesn't work. Can you please put a new link up? Btw, it looks great.
12th-Jun-2007 07:04 am (UTC) - Hi
I love the look and feel of this layout. Although I can't download the file. ^^;;
29th-Jun-2007 08:03 am (UTC)
I tried downloading this layout, but the link no longer works. Would you be willing to repost it? I'm all for clean, simple layouts that are easy to use, and this looks like a great one. Thanks! :)
