S2 Layers

Issue creating S2 layer...

I am currently unable to create styles, layers, etc. from the Advanced Custumization page.

It says " You have reached your maximum number of styles."

However, I can create Styles from the regular 'Manage Styles' page. I just can't make any layers to use with my new style...

Functionality in LJ Styles...

I wanted to be able to show either the 5 most recently uploaded photo thumbnails or 5 random thumbnails from a given gallery. Will I be able to show either of these in an LJ S2 style?

I've started a new S2 style for both my journal and picture account, but am not even sure if the info can be shared between the two (thumbnails shown in LJ.com style or LJ.com info shown on pics.lj.com style)

Eventually, when the Photo Hosting Service is completed (which, according to Denise, it will be 100% completed when it is released; unlike s2 which continues to be unfinished) and made public, both livejournal.com and pics.livejournal.com will be able to call information from each other. It's a two-way street. Yes, you will be able to call pictures from pics.livejournal.com in your LiveJournal s2 style (like you described, a "5 most recent" or "5 random" thumbnails). Congruently, you will be able to call information from livejournal.com in your FotoBilder s2 style (like the displayed name, a minicalendar, a linklist, default userpic, etc.). The two will be completely integrated, as far as Denise explained to me when I asked her about it recently. And this is how it should be. ;)

Regarding your first question, I experience the same problem. I filled out a "Provide Feedback" survey as well, in case you didn't.

I meant to mention. At the current time, information cannot be called from one to the other. If you look at my FotoBilder style, for instance, the defualt userpic and navigational links are hard coded in because nothing can be called from LJ yet. (grumble)

Today I randomly decided that I need to get my style in tune with the rest of my journal, and don't have a template to go off of. I want it to based on the Simple layout, but I'm not sure where to find that. If nothing else, I was going to find the link to your style, but the entry that had that link in it seems to be gone. Can you help me out?
