How to Install the Codes (Back to Top)

To Start:
In your image program, create two 16x16 pixel images — one for protected entries and one for private entries. Or you can find images by going to various websites, like FamFamFam or Icongalore. Once you have the images, save them and upload them to your own image host. For Example Photobucket.

These codes need to be added to your custom style sheet
For Example:

     body {
        font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
        font-size: 12px;
        margin: 0px;
        background-color: #f8f8f8;
        color: #000000;
        background-image: url('');
     }
     a {
        color: #000000;
     }
     a:visited {
        color: #314667;
     }
   /* 3 Column Security Icon Code */
     .aboutentry img[src="http://p-stat.livejournal.com/img/icon_protected.gif"]{
         width: 0;
         height: 0;
         padding: 0 16px 16px 0;
         background: url("http://YOURIMAGELINK.com");
    }

FAQ (Back to Top)

How do I install these?
By Reading the Installation Guide here.

I'm using IE, why can't I see my image for private entries?
IE does not recognize the [] in this part, img[src="http://p-stat.livejournal.com/img/icon_protected.gif"], of the coding. Therefore you can only change one part of the images for IE.

Why aren't these working for me? I'm using S1.
These are for S2 Styles, to use the ones for S1 please refer to this tutorial.

Why aren't these working for me? I'm using S2 Insert Stlye Name Here.
First make sure you copied the codes for the correct Style, then make sure you copied the codes correctly. If it's still not working, make sure that you changed the links (http://YOURIMAGELINK.com) to your own links. If after all that it's still not working, make a new post in everything_lj with your overrides, and we will assist you.

My image is repeating or there is alot of space around my image! Help?
Make sure you altered the padding to the correct height. For Example your padding says:

    padding: 0 16px 16px 0;

But your image is 8px by 8px, this leave alot of space around the image (and perhaps will even make it repeat). So make sure you alter it accordingly!

I'm using Tabular Indent or A Novel Conundrum, Why aren't my images showing up in IE?
In both of these styles the code for the image in IE replaces more images, so they are not included in the codes.
In Tablular Indent, it replaces all images. In A Novel Conundrum, it replaces the image for the community and the usericon.
