1. First you need to make sure you've got a website listed in your user info. Go here and put any website address where it says Webpage URL. Even your own journal URL will work.
2. Go here.
Click the "Basics" tab and make sure that S1 is checked. If you change it to S1 from S2, be sure you click "save changes">
3. Click the "Look and Feel" tab. Under the "Layout" section, make sure all menus are set to the style indicated in the layout you're using. My older ones are "generator" and my newer ones are "clean and simple". Clear anything that's in the "theme" area, so that all the colors are blank. Click "save changes".
4. Click the "custom options" tab. Paste the provided layout code into the box labeled "overides". Make any changes to the coding that you need (add your communities, links, "about me" stuff, etc). If you're using one of my generator style layouts you'll need to find the word USERNAME in the code (it's there 8 times) and change that to your own username. Click "save changes".
5. If you're familiar with modifying your journal using the old system, you can still find it here.
If you have any problems or questions feel free to post them here, and I'll help you as well as I'm able.
