Frequently Asked Question #172. Where can I learn more about advanced customization?

If you are a Paid, Permanent, or Early Adopter user who has already looked at common advanced customization effects in the FAQ, you can also use the Advanced Customization area to customize your journal using the S2 programming language.
The flexibility offered by advanced customization also means increased complexity. You can use the S2 programming language and the different layer types to control your journal's layout exactly by creating a new layout.

The s2howto journal's memories link to tutorials covering common advanced customizations. The tutorials are categorized by theme, because you need to use customizations and layers that match your journal's theme. If you change themes in the future, you will need to change your customizations and layers to match your new theme.

Please note that LiveJournal is unable to offer support for detailed journal customization. If you require further assistance in using HTML or CSS to customize your journal, you can use your favorite search engine to search for "HTML tutorial", or follow some of the other links in this FAQ. Also, you can find one-on-one help by posting in an unofficial LiveJournal community that helps people customize their journals.
