The S2 HowTo Journal

Tips, Tricks, and Tutorials for Basic S2 Customization

Posting Access:
Select Members
This community contains tutorials for customizing several aspects of your journal using Style System 2 (S2). You can find a listing of all the currently available tutorials in the memories section. Be sure to select a tutorial that is compatible with your current system style and that you follow all instructions carefully. The S1 equivalent of this journal is howto. If you are using S1, you will not be able to use any of the tutorials in this journal.

You should first read the FAQs in the Customization and Advanced Customization categories. The tutorials in this journal will assume a basic level of fluency with the concepts discussed in those FAQs.

If you have questions regarding aspects of how the LiveJournal customization system works, you can file a Support request. However, please keep in mind that Support volunteers do not assist with individual HTML customization and "web-design" type questions. If you are seeking HTML assistance, you may wish to use your favorite search engine to search for an "HTML tutorial" to find help with the HTML aspect of your question.

These tutorials are maintained by howto_userdoc. If you notice an error in a tutorial or would like to discuss the addition of new tutorials, you are welcome to participate in the community.
