Template: Leaving for Paris II (6 Additional Color Schemes)

See the first six color schemes here. I edited these templates so that the link text on the sidebar wasn't all uppercase, as that seemed to be the most popular change people were making. Or, I thought I had, but apparently I forgot it. There's code to change this at the bottom of the post. Please credit [community profile] circa77 if you use so that others can easily find the templates. Comments are much appreciated. ♥

PLEASE NOTE: In order for these templates to work correctly out of the box, you need to make sure that under Customize Journal Style > Modules, the Header module is checked (Second section from the top) and "header" is selected from the drop-down menu. You're welcome to adjust the CSS code if you prefer to change this option, but I won't be providing alternate code for it.

9 May 09: If you would like for the links on your sidebar to not be uppercase, add the following bit of code to the very bottom of your CSS:
.module-section-two ul li {text-transform: none;}

20 June 09: Code corrected in accordance to the recent DW code push; extra comma removed from tags section.

I'm enjoying the Venetian you posted the other day, but I think I am going to switch to Peripheral Vision.

I've got to add these two entries to memories now, so I know to come back to them later when I feel like a color change. Thank you so much!

Oh I was wondering, do you know of a way to get the user name also posted under the icons? Maybe some extra bit of code that could be tacked on? LJ has trained my eyes, lol; and I've heard rumbles about this from other people using the standard DW layouts.

Or just say "Enough with the special orders, already!"

rebel waltz is lovely and i have absconded with it. interestingly, the layout breaks when one doesn't use the "profile" section in the sidebar:

broken layout

html fail *headdesk*

ETA (again): even more interesting (to me, anyway) i re-added the "profile" module and it didn't fix the problem. so i reset the modules to the defaults and the sidebar is still a tiny bit mis-aligned vertically. sorry to spam your comments, but i just thought it was odd and wondered if anyone else has had this problem.

ETA2, son of ETA: last one, i promise. it's just that i figured it out, the layout is dependent upon the body font size being 10pt. any other size distorts the vertical spacing.

These are awesome! I really like 'Corner Cafe'... could you tell me how to change a few of the colors? I really like the color of the sidebar, and was hoping for something like that across the top (where the brownish green colors are).

These are beautiful, thanks. I'm using Leia but may change to Corner Cafe in the future, I can't make my mind up lol.

Is there anyway I could add a header image to this without it mucking up something else?

I think these are gorgeous layouts. I am using Leia, but am stumped as to how I should be crediting you so that people know. Care to help a mindless idiot girl out? :)

Anyway, I've saved this to my memories so I can find it easily again should I need it. Thanks so much for sharing!

These have to be the best layouts I've seen so far ... simple and basic, just the way I like it. I'm using Peripheral Vision.

One question though, I have this weird thing about not liking borders around my icons in the layout. Is there any way to get rid of it completely. I know enough to usually be able to figure out what to change on something like this but this time I'm stumped. I've figured out how to change the color, but not how to get rid of it.

Thanks in advance!
