Using S2 overrides

You'll have to make a new layer in the Advanced Customization section - the easiest is probably to create a style-specific layer of type 'theme' and 'style' matching whatever your current layout is. Paste in the source code of your current theme layer, which you'll have to find on the list of public layers, and then add your overriding code at the bottom, and click 'Save and Compile'. You should then be able to find it in your custom layers and apply it, though you'll have to redo your other customizations.

Alternatively, you can add the code onto the bottom of the wizard layer already generated by the style interface - it'll be listed as 'auto-generated customizations' and highlighted to show that it's in use. However, if you add the new code there, and then make changes through the style interface, you'll have to go back and re-add the code - the info in the layer gets wiped out when you save changes in the interface.

(this is a reference post for me to link to, to save having to type these instructions up multiple times!)

Starting caveat - while I used custom layouts on LJ, and occasionally tweaked some, I never wrote any CSS overrides from scratch, mostly because I remember when S2 went live and I went 'LAYERS? A PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE? WHAT IS THIS SHIT I'M NEVER MAKING MY OWN LAYOUTS AGAIN'. So while I can answer a lot of questions about how DW does things, I don't know the answer to 'what's the equivalent of this LJ element in DW?'. I also do not know the answer to 'I broke my imported core1 layout, how do I fix it.' I'm also assuming you know CSS and HTML, but not necessarily any other programming language.

Onward! )
