This community is for discussing additions and corrections to any tutorials housed in howto and s2howto. This is not a community for asking for help with styles or overrides, and any off-topic posts will be deleted. If you have any questions about this community, please email the maintainer at the email address above.

lj_userdoc is the community for discussing additions and changes to the LiveJournal FAQs in general. Any additions or corrections to the Customization FAQs should be handled there.

If you are interested in writing a tutorial, look over the suggestions of others for ideas on where to start and how to present your suggestions. If you see someone else's tutorial and think it is a good or bad idea, comment and share your opinion. Help test the tutorials of others to see if there are any bugs. Recommend better wording or presentation.

Tutorials should be formatted as follows:
  • Introduction describing what the tutorial does.
  • The override code, with HTML escaped, on a "wheat" background with black text
  • Instructions for using and applying the override.
  • Additional references on a "darkgray" background with black text
  • Any warnings on a "red" background with white text

You can see examples of this format in the current howto and s2howto tutorials. There is also a tutorial generator available to make formatting easier.
