Showbiz layout & matching profile layout  
Look who's late. Yes, it's the July layout! Not only had I planned to post this last month, I also wanted to get it posted before we get the artwork for The 2nd Law. Oh, well.
It's Muse season! Layouts for the other albums will follow.

Edit (July 28, 2016): Profile layout edited, because cellpadding & -spacing aren't supported in HTML5.


Click here for live preview, then click on the layout's icon.

layout info Based on Flexible Squares.
Works for all account types.
Tested in Firefox 14, Google Chrome 21 and Internet Explorer 9.

Internet Explorer is being a buggy bastard and won't properly display tags in entries :o/. Also, text-shadow doesn't work.

You can change this layout's width, but better not sidebar's.
how to implement this layout Go to the Customize Journal page.

Make sure Style System is S2.

Choose the Flexible Squares layout.

Go to Custom CSS
» Use layout's stylesheet(s): No
» Use layout's stylesheet(s) when including custom external stylesheet: No
» Use external stylesheets: No

insert custom stylesheet

This profile layout's width and height are flexible except for the first row's height and the first column's width. So avoid stretching those unless you don't mind a messed up layout.
Go to Edit Profile and insert the code into the Bio part.
To copy the code, click in the text area and then press Ctrl+A and Ctrl+C.

You don't have to use the lj-raw tags. With them you can only make line breaks/new paragraphs with <br> and <p>. Without the lj-raw tags you can also create line breaks and new paragraphs just by hitting the enter key.

If you want to change the link color, put a font tag with a different color in your link. Like so:
<a href="URL"><font color="#3291DE">LINK TEXT</font></a>
Since I changed the layout, a description of how to add columns would take too long.

But you can add another row, just insert

in front of </table>.
