From Dreamwidth Notes
Jump to: navigation, search


Dreamwidth styles are designed to be mostly customizable via CSS, with many classes built into the core of the style system. Please note that this CSS documentation centers around documenting the core system; the plain version of which is called Tabula Rasa. (However, many classes will be available in all core2 styles; other layouts will mainly have only a different page structure.)

You can apply the plain version of Tabula Rasa to your style here, as well as choose a layout type. Then, you can customize the CSS for you style in the custom CSS section of the wizard, where you can choose to not used the default CSS if you want to start entirely from scratch. Alternatively, you can use the Advanced Customization Area if you are familiar with that system--read the S2 Guide for more information.

The overall structure of a page has everything inside a #canvas div. The main sections of the page are #header, #content, and #footer. Inside #content are #primary, which contains the entries or other main content of the page, while #secondary and #tertiary contain modules.
