Please read and make sure you understand the following before you begin:
The layout profile you create will have a name that looks like: layout-xxxxxx
For example, if you name your layout profile "orange", a profile will be created with the name: layout-orange
You will then be able to switch into that profile and customize it to your liking. People may then use the layout from that profile by clicking the "Use This Layout" link that appears on the profile.
A layout profile has some limitations. You will not be able to post articles, vote in polls or leave comments while switched into any layout profile.
You can list all of the layout profiles you have created by clicking the "Layouts By ..." link that appears on your main profile page. From there, you can pull up any layout profile you have created and then using the links on its page you'll be able to switch into it (using the "Switch To This Profile" link) or delete it (using the "Delete This Profile" link).
Once your layout profile is ready to share, you'll need to click the "Mark as Ready" link on its page so that it will be listed.
Once you are finished working on your layout profile, just click any 'Log Out' link to be returned to your main profile.
Remember: Only changes that you make on the 'Look and Feel' page of the layout profile will be shared. You must enter all of your custom CSS and any other changes on that page!
