Another DW layout. Went with something a lot more minimalist this time. Made with help from my wife. If you find something's missing in the files, comment on DW, PM me, comment on my profile, email me, etc. Do not ask me how to help you change something in this layout. There's already a DW community for layout questions. Ask that there.
HOW TO INSTALL1.
Download the zip folder here
. This contains the CSS code, the theme layout code, and all of the images for the layout. If you'd like to use different images, make sure you use images of the same size or you'll need to do some more editing. After you download the zip file, upload the images for the layout somewhere. Dreamwidth allows all users to upload some images (how much storage you get depends on your account type). That should be doable with these images at all account levels. Keep the URLs on hand for adding into the code.
Go to "Organize" from the navigation on the main page and click on "Select Style". Use the search box to find a Strata layout. Apply it. Under "Choose a Page Setup", pick "1 Column (modules at top and bottom; no sidebar)". Then, go to "Customize Your Theme".
Under "Customize Your Theme", go to "Presentation"". Set "Select whether user interaction links are printed as text or using the available icons" to "text-only". Set "Select whether entry management links are printed as text or using the available icons" to "text-only". Set "Select whether comment management links are printed as text or using the available icons" to "text-only". Hit "Save Changes".
Now still under "Customize Your Theme", go to "Modules". Uncheck every box ecept for "Profile", "Links List" and "Navigation". Make sure "Profile" is set to "1"and "Main Module Section". Make sure "Links List" is set to "2" and "Main Module Section" and "Navigation" is set to "3" and "Main Module Section". Save Changes. If you would like to add custom text, youc an add that as well. Add that under "Main Module Section" and set it to "4", if you want to have that.
Still under "Customize Your Theme", now go to "Link List" and these links in the following order: 1) https://YOURUSERNAME.dreamwidth.org/profile, 2) https://www.dreamwidth.org/entry/new, 3) your website url or any url you find handy--it will have a book image to click on if that helps, 4) https://YOURUSERNAME.dreamwidth.org/tag/, 5) https://YOURUSERNAME.dreamwidth.org/read. These links will display in order as your user profile link, post a new entry link, your website/personal link, your tag page link, and the link for the reading page.
Still under "Customize Your Theme", go to "Custom CSS". Make sure "Use layout's stylesheet(s)" is unckecked. Paste https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Architects+Daughter&display=swap link in the "Custom Stylesheet URL". This will give the layout the custom font. If you want a different font, Google offers plenty that are freely hosted there. Just search through the fonts and put in the link given for that one.
After getting the link for the font, now open up the text file "Sunday Morning Layout" from the zip folder. Add your image URLs for the layout into the spaces with those names. For example, look for spots that say "Main Background Image" and replace that with the URL you used to host the image with that name. Once you're done, paste the file with the now added image URL links into the "Use Embedded CSS" box. Save Changes.
Now, go to "Advanced Customization". Go to "Your Layer" from there. Under "Create a Layout-Specific Layer", make sure type is set to "Theme" and Layout is set to "Strata". Hit "Create". Under the "Your Layers" section, you should see a theme layer with the name "(none)". Click on the "Edit" button and paste the code from the text file "Layer Overrides" in the zip folder. Then click on "Save & Compile". Hit "Back to layers list". Now go to "Your Styles" and go to the bolded style that has "Use" grayed out. Hit the "Edit" button. Make sure "Theme"is set to "Layer Overrides" and save changes.
This layout has the icons page customized too. If you'd like to have the icons page in the layout them, go to "Account Settings" and go to the "Display" tab. Make sure "Show my journal's icons pages in my chosen style instead of the site layout" is checked. This is of course, entirely optional. Background images are edits of Rice Paper 3

by Yusuke Kamiyamane. A warning: this layout isn't really designed for mobile. It's intended for desktop usage. If you want something mobile friendly, sorry, you'll have to edit the code yourself. Which you are of course, free to do as much as you'd like. If you make a layout based on this one and want to share it, feel free. Just lists that the base design was by me in your notes or credit section.
