Is there a way to make your friends page a different layout than your own layout?

If you use/make a custom layout you can. One of the things you can check for is the state of the current page and whether someone is logged in or not. So you could potentially have many different looks for your friends pages, your pages and still different again if someone is viewing those pages but not logged in, etc.

Thank you! Umm, one more stupid question...where can I do all this? I browsed through the "customize" section without any luck.

The easiest thing to do is pick a custom layout, such as component or boxy or whatever and find the associated "help" community on LJ. They'll have tutorials, etc.

For component it's [ profile] component_help, for example.

if you can, you probably have to have pretty good css skills, there isn't an easy 'copy and paste code for friends page layout here!' section on the customize page as far as i can tell.

I could swear there used to be an easy, idiot-proof "Change your friends page to THIS!" button years ago, but it's possible I may have dreamt it.

S1 is the old system, which was much less customisable but much easier to customise if that makes any sense. :) So you're probably thinking of that? You can switch to it from the themes page on very bottom left under the Developer Area link and search around in there (if you haven't already). It will likely fudge up your current layout though, until you switch back. It's also no longer supported by LJ.

Custom S2 layouts do let you do what you're talking about. You basically have to re-code everything for each page.

Ahhh, that makes sense. Thank you!

I know back when we used S1 any time you had a custom layout it would have codes like "Current page" "friends page" etc. Now I've never done this before but I THINK that if you did it that way and just used a different code for the friends page section, you would be ok.

I'll look into that, thank you!
