LJ layout question  
Question for those more experienced with LJ than I:

I'd like to temporarily change my LJ layout to a Halloween one - one of the layouts LJ offers. But if I do, can I easily go back to my personalized/ customized layouts when it's time to take down Halloween? Are custom layouts archived?

(I have a paid account so accessing the Halloween layout isn't any problem. But will my layout be archived? Or will I have to rebuild it from scratch like when I originally made it?)

I'm not sure, and ages ago I created a dummy account to practice on. It has come in handy. Also, anal person that I am, I screencapped the CSS page layouts, so if I lose my current one (font/sizes/colors, etc), I can always redo it. And I am pretty sure you have "Flexible Squares" like I do, which is the easiest one to work with when changing.

Oh! I have a "community" I never use. I can try it there!

Yes, I do have flexible squares. I never have mastered the pictures down the side. Some day, when I have copious amounts of free time, I'll try making a picture-show down the side!

A screen-cap is an excellent idea! Then if I ever have to rebuild it, I'll have all the details!

Thanks for the tips! I may give it a go and see what happens!

Putting pics on the sides in "FS" is easier than you think. If you have the photos in your LJ gallery you can link to them. Plus if you keep the same layout, when you want to change the pics, you just "overwrite" on the pic already there. When you're ready, let me know and I can show you how to do it.
