  • Oh God my first layout for public consumption *flails around*

  • While all sidebar modules are supported, the layout is designed for having the navigation links as the topmost item on the sidebar. You may want to keep that in mind when you install it.

  • Internet Explorer does not support the drop shadow effects on the entry titles. It won't break the visual flow if you use IE - it just looks better with Firefox.

  • You may want to save the header image used to your own webspace just in case.

  • Questions? Ideas? Don't hesitate to drop a comment! I'm new to making DW layouts, so any recommendations you'd make, especially ones that'd streamline and clean up the code, would be welcome.


  • Please credit [personal profile] sunrisetr or [community profile] dusktilldawn.

  • Modify the code at will for personal use, but don't redistribute.

Installation Instructions:

  • Under Organize, go to the Select Style menu.

  • Select Tabula Rasa as your layout.

  • Select Plain as your theme.

  • Set your Page Layout to 2 Column (Sidebar on Left). This is important, I can't guarantee how the layout will look for you otherwise.

  • In the Custom CSS page, keep "Use layout's stylesheet(s)" ticked.

  • Copy and paste the code above in the Custom CSS box.

used the layout, although the sidebar keeps going below, all the entries... I must be doing something wrong.

I remember changing layout to 2 column sidebar on left, but when I rechecked it must not have saved correctly because it wasn't. sorry to bother you with it. :) Thanks for the layout.

The layout is lovely, but I was wondering if there was an easy way to substitute in my own header?

I've been looking for a tutorial to do that, but I didn't want to totally mess up the code.

Thanks, and will credit.

I LOVE this. It's so pretty. :) I've just changed a few things - borders on the sidebars, and the general width of the page, but other than that, nothing major! Too pretty to change majorly. :)

(Any idea how to make the left sidebar the entire height of the page? I've been trying to figure out how, and can't!)

From: [personal profile] telanor
That's no problem! Thanks for the reply. :)

And thanks again - any help would be appreciated. I've tried using height: 100% on


And it doesn't change it at all. It's just trying to figure out which part will make the entire background of the sidebar 100% height. I can't figure it out myself... /facepalm

Hi, I'm using this layout right now (I did tweak it a bit, though) and I added some code to use custom tiny icons instead of the usual tiny icons for private, filtered, etc. entries and I noticed that while the tiny icon for custom groups works fine, the tiny icons for private entries and filtered entries repeats. Ideally, the tiny bento box should only appear beside the date and time.

I'm really sorry for the bother ^^;;
