How to make layouts:
-make the background of the layout the same way you would make fanart, maybe adding in a few text boxes or whatever you would want to put into the layout.
-Use the following codes... (explained after)


code for layout:

<div style="background-image: url(BACKGROUND URL HERE); text-align: left; margin: 0pt auto; width: 410px; height: 1000px">


code for 1 scroll box:

<div style="position: relative; text-align: left; width: 264px; height: 130px; overflow: auto; top: 160px; left: 13px"><span style="color: #000000">text here</span><span style="color: rgb(255,255,255)"><br />

-use the codes above to make the layout and the scroll box(es).
-insert the background url (the fanart, or background of the layout) where it says in the code.
-adjust the colored parts of the code, according to the height and width of your layout and scroll boxes. (leave the ''px'')
