http://openid.anonymity.com/ provides easy and simple OpenID accounts for testing LJ features. Do note that you need to add an e-mail address (but you don't need to validate it) in order to comment, else LJ throws out a bunch of errors.

My idea here is that the header changes depending on whether the reader is a member of the community, is logged into LiveJournal, or is just a passing internet spectator. I'm thinking that this is where we'll include external links, as well as linking to the calendar and tags and memories pages.

Logged out
* Link to login page
* Link to create account
* Blurb about the community

Logged in
* Link to join community
* Blurb about the community

Member
* Welcome message
* Link to inbox
* Link to manage userpics
* Display default userpic (not possible yet, but I did submit a suggestion to let that information be made available to S2)
* Link to member's own profile
* If it ever gets implemented, I'd like to to see the recent activity box up in the header.

If you're reading this then maybe I've asked you for some input, or maybe you've just stumbled across this project by accident. Either way, let me lay it out for you.

What I'd like to do is create a LiveJournal layout that emulates an online forum, similar to mvnForum or phpBB. The idea is to create a brief listing of threads, with subject, author, number of replies and maybe a small snippet from the beginning of the entry, and then let each reader visit the entry in full along with all it's comments on a separate page.

I'd also like to implement other standard forum features such as subforums and stickythreads, jumping to a particular page of a thread from the main list, and others. I'd particularly like to make the header section of each page link to relevant sections for each community member.

I'm reasonably proficient with CSS and Livejournal S2, but I figured that by laying out my notes in public I could possibly get some help and ideas from other layout creators, community moderators, and others who would benefit from the completion of this project. Feel free to comment here, or on some of the more specialized threads, if you've got any ideas you'd like to share.

Example layout:

Subforum 2
Subforum 3
