Icon journal, lj styles and lj changes  

As a part of me iconing again, I have set up an icon journal for myself to seperate the private stuff and the icon stuff and to give the option to people to see the art only if they choose to. I’ve made a really cool CSS stylesheet for it that I’m quite proud of using Flexible Squares and then all the lj changes the friends page look crap happened and I started to think more seriously about moving it to dreamwidth completely, so I migrated the Flexible Squares to dreamwidth with a tutorial and advanced customization, which then gave me the not so brilliant idea to create a style layer on my own complete in HTML5. And thus I became a bit obsessed with it.

However even though I made progress, I’ve shelved the project for now, because I seriously lack php and perl knowledge here and the documentation is seriously lacking for me. So I’m keeping the customizations in css for now. Do any of you have knowledge of the S2 style system? Is there an idiot guide ;)

Also I’m still trying to figure out if and how I should post old content on my icon journal. Do I post all the icons, or just the ones I like best? Do I post all the masterials in an archive post? What about the artworks and the tutorials and the downloads. I have been thinking about that for a bit and cannot make a decision.

My dreamwidth already has the css stylesheet changes. What do you think?

Sounds like you are trying to do exactly what I am too. I made CSS layouts for LJ , and can write HTML5, but get lost with anything deeper.
I'm ardisia and artbox on LJ and ardisia_test and feralfae on Dreamwidth.
