I've finally got a spectacular looking STYLISH look for my Google+ pages that I'm happy to live with. It is at this point that I can share it with my adoring public! :-)
www.gothicwallpapers.net. A really nice desolate looking seascape with rich sunset colours. Using a Firefox 'developer tool' plug-in such as RainbowPicker, you can select colours from the picture's pallette just by pointing at them and then discover their RGB values. Then, as you re-colour the elements of the page with your Stylesheets, you can specify colours that are tastefully suited to your background. Or not. It's up to you!
"Little Fluffy Clouds" theme... Anyway, for your consideration, here's THE SCRIPT AS SHE IS WRIT at the moment. There are dozens of those funny looking Google 'divs' and 'spans' specified. At the moment they are more or less in the order I found them. I suppose I could be REALLY 'PEDANTIC' sometime and put them into some kind of alphanumeric order. But not today.
Here we are now in APRIL 2012 - and Google have completely changed the layout and functionality of Google Plus (already!?!).
It's not an entirely objectionable new look, but the 'bottom line' is... the above STYLISH scripts for G+ are now obsolete.
Hopefully someone else will take up the baton and come up with a new one.
In the mean time, enjoy all that empty white space they have now :-)
