» Remember a subject line
Take a look at the categories in the memories/tags. If your layout fits into one of those categories, use that in your subject line, please!
» Tag your own layouts
If you want your layout to be easy to find, then be sure to tag it with an appropriate category. If you do not find a suitable category for your layout in our list of tags, then you may contact me via email and ask me to create one. If you have submitted more than TEN layouts to the community and you would like your own "Layout by You" tag, contact me so I can create one for you.
» Give us a screenshot...
Please remember to include a screenshot in your entry so people can see what the layout looks like!! Many people link to the journal the layout is on. That is not a good idea unless you plan to keep that journal the same forever. Take a screencap instead! PC users can just hit the "Prt Scrn" button (usually next to F12). Open a new document in your image program and hit "paste". There is your screenshot.
» ...or give us a mirror
Another nice way to post a preview is with a "mirror" of the journal (my preferred method). This will allow people to see the journal in "action". On a PC, right click > view source. When the source is open, you can save it as an html file (file > save as > nameyouchoose.html) and upload it to a file host. That way, it's a working preview.
» Navbar and Sponsored Plus. Many layouts do not work well with the navigation strip or with "plus" (ads) accounts. Please indicate whether or not your submission works with these.
