When the design is so bad that even the random users try to modify it, you know something is really wrong.

These kind of userscripts that changes the interface existed for the old Last.fm as well, used several many years ago so don't act like such a drama queen to make some point about the new websites design. The design has been out for almost 5 months now, people need to get over it.

@pizzicatoiv Haven't got a clue what you're talking. If the script is good or not has nothing to do with the point I'm making. About 2/3 of all posts here (probably more) are about how bad the new website is and this has been going on for months now. People need to move on.

I've started using this and it's a huge improvement. Removing the dead space (in header, and gap in middle of charts) is a huge improvement in the library view. On the user/artist page, pulling the user/artist info into the top banner really helps. And of course, square user avatars. ^_^ . These three should definitely be incorporated into the main site in my opinion. Thanks!

I definitely prefer the smaller font. The default layout is too spread out. the smaller font compresses it well. The header is way too large in the default view, so you have to scroll to start getting information. With this layout I can get almost the entire 20 "Recent Tracks" on my screen and it's perfectly readable.

I did find one problem with the style. why does it not render the charts at the top of library pages? I dont see the option to customize this.

I replaced graphs with tables because graphs in current state are absolutely non-informative, and I can't make them more useful via CSS.

I hope they will return BBCode to "About me" section, recent activity of a user and groups. Also in this column you can see events in which user is participating.

Style is working correctly now.
I don't like "a redesigned header", but I will not do any major changes while site still in beta because they could change something again. It's just a waste of time.

No, the style don ́t work.  The menu. Overwiew,  Library, Follower... and so on isn ́t there!

Well, thanks now it works. A bit large fonts regarding scrobbles, artists & loved songs though. Otherwise very good.

This thing is amazing. My page looks great right now, I've even added my own banner so it looks even better. I'll share my current setup with y'all:

It's been a while since I customized my own profile so it took me a while to find the proper color combinations I like but here it is, with my own banner:



I do prefer the table over the graph. I find it more organized. I don't know about the 'Listening History' graph on the right side, though. It hasn't rendered with the customization and it stands out too much since it's white on black background.



Overall, I'm enjoying it! ^_^ Thank you so much for this Dante_MS; and wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

Glad to see that someone uses this ridiculous amount of options xD. I thought it was just a waste of time.

I returned graphs because they have become much more useful after the last Last.fm update.
Relating "Listening History" graphs: your comment has forced me to look into that problem one more time and I have found a way to customize these graphs :D. I just released a patch, update your styles).
Happy New Year everyone ^^.

Is it something wrong with a screenshot or some elements really not on their places? I mean a menu in a header and a whole page below the header placed higher than they should, and charts in a mess.
That's how it's looking for me with same settings:

looking good. Thanks Dante. I actually wish we could myspace/IG this and use these settings for when others visited our page :) 

one question: how did you guys deal with tweaking the stylesheet? when I would refresh the page so I could re-save the new settings (the button at the bottom changes to "style installed"), I would lose many of my current settings. I had to screenshot and re-enter things from that. Not sure why. So took awhile but this is what I came up with!

Forget my previous comment, it was wrong.
Chrome and other WebKit-based browsers don't save settings.
I just discovered it because I'm using Firefox -_-. Sorry, I thought it will be easy to tune a style for yourself if browsers save settings, but they don't.

Well, I'm using Firefox 43.0.3 on Mac OS X 10.10.5, and with stylish already installed in my browser, if I go to the userstyles last.fm page, I get all the default settings and below the green button '+ Update with Stylish' even though I got my own settings installed.

I wasn't able to do any tweaking unless I try to play around with CSS.

In Firefox you're able to update the page of the style without losing current settings if you just installed the style. If you'll go to another page or close a browser you'll lose your settings.
In Chrome you'll lose them in any case.
Developers of Stylish know about this problem, but I don't know when they'll fix that.

Yes I had to capture settings as a reference for later tweaking. With FFox fine tuning in one session one can work around the 'locked' update button by: Making your changes / go to the bottom and click 'show CSS' / select,copy the html / go to FF add-ons 'user styles' / click 'edit' / right click the window and hit 'select all' then hit 'paste' / then choose 'save'. Kinda convoluted but it works.

Dante! My awesome custom stylish went pear shaped :(
Started today with a white back round instead of the black leather. I'm fairly certain it's not a local issue. No FF updates, no registry changes, cleaned cache, and flushed dns (x2).
I updated stlyish with the previous settings. Still white.
I then changed the back round to an uploaded 1920x1200 plain black and updated. Now the BR is 1/2 black and 1/2 white.
Screenshot links:
What it is now: http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff449/NurseSeppuku/Snap%202016-03-09%20at%2008.56.21.jpg
Original settings: http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff449/NurseSeppuku/Snap%202016-01-04%20at%2008.52.23.jpg
Current settings: http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff449/NurseSeppuku/Snap%202016-03-09%20at%2008.55.35.jpg

Can you help?

I'm using a different script and this update has left a white box on the top of my profile too, matching the text so I can't see my total scrobbles and artists. :/

Thank you Dante. One other bug: The header links under the user/artist's name are dead on the profile as well as Artists pages.

Sorry Bound2 (but at least we know it's a global problem).

Just check the community next time). If I haven't updated the style recently, but something goes wrong, then Last.fm staff changed something on the site.
I'm checking the site regularly, so I'm always aware if the style is broken.

Among other changes I've changed "Header image gradient" option. Now it has only "enabled" and "disabled" states. While changing this I fucked up with install keys, but it should be fine now.

Hey Dante. Thanks for all the help, your style is awesome.

I just have on small bug: when I use Black or Black Leather as background, sometimes the screen loads and is all white. When I select something on the page, it goes back to normal.

Am I messing with something on the settings?

Thanks!

Can you provide a screenshot of this issue and information about the browser you're using?
I've never experienced such problems in any browser.

Just fixed it. Please update your style.
Some strange bug appeared after the previous update. Seems like only WebKit-based browsers suffered from that bug, since I've never seen it in Firefox, which is my main browser. It took me several tries to reproduce that bug, that's why I didn't notice it before.
Thank you for the report, really appreciate it. It's hard to test every aspect of the site in different browsers and display resolutions by oneself.

That's great! I've been using this skin on and off the the past few months. I love having the option to customize Last.fm. The only issue I have is that I'm not a fan of the header and I actually much prefer the default one - is there an option I'm missing somewhere to keep that?

Also currently the "Scrobbles" "Artists" and "Loved Tracks" titles don't quite fit. Am I doing something wrong?

No, there is no such option.

They've changed a font. Didn't notice that it's causing problems.
Btw these titles always weren't fitting in other language versions of the site :D. It's a necessary evil to make all the things work.
Goddamnit! When are these kiddies going to quit rearranging deck chairs
on the Titanic??? Every time you put lipstick on this pig poor Dante_MS
has to go in and redo the customization code and we have to re-install
the whole schmeeeer to shed ourselves of your hideous 'updates'. 
Yeah, so much effort for such stupid useless updates :D.
But are you re-installing the style after each update? D:

Hey Dante,

Since the last update they changed the header and playbar design and I noticed with the Stylish activated that the menu and search engine that would appear at the upper right side is missing as seen in the below image captures (I marked the area with a red rectangle). I don't know if anybody else is encountering this issue. Maybe it needs a bug fix.

I'm currently using Firefox 47.0. Mac OS X 10.11.5. When you get the chance. Thank you.
