Typable Move 2.0

Announcing Typable Move 2.0, a second version of my Movable Type-compatible S2 layout. This one includes support for EntryPage and ReplyPage. Feel free to use and modify to suit your needs. Just leave a comment here if you're using it, so I can feel encouraged to continue working on it.

You may also want to use my stylesheet as a reference, but if you copy it, please note that it's a modified version of the TypePad Thin style that I obtained from Movable Style (so check the license et al).

This is how it looks.

The way it is now, it doesn't meet LiveJournal's layout coding standards. There are things that I've thought of doing--for example, adding support fot i18n. But there are other things that I don't want to do: for example, letting the user specify colours, fonts, or any style information. That's supposed to be part of the Movable Type-compatible stylesheet that the user is linking to.

The whole point of developing this layout is so that users can reuse the many styles available for Movable Type from the original developers of the software as well as third-party sources.

I hope to get this into the default list of LJ layouts sometime (at least those available to paid users). If some of the folks closely involved in the development of LJ can help, great!

PS: Instructions for use:

1. Download the source.
2. Create a new S2 layer of type "Layout". Paste the contents of the downloaded source file into the text box. Compile.
3. Go to the Customization page and select Typable Move as your layout.
4. Click "Edit Customizations". Here, enter the URL of your Movable Type stylesheet. You can obtain the default stylesheets on the website (under one of their licenses).
