Tab icons (favicons) in S2 layouts

I've been asked how to use tab icons (technical term: favicons) on S2 styles many times. While technically there's always been a way to do this, it can seem very daunting and can only be done on paid or permanent accounts, so I've never recommended it (or even used it myself until this month for that matter.)

If you have a paid/perm account and are using an S2 layout, and would like to have a custom icon in your browser tab for your journal, just follow these instructions! )



AND DON'T FORGET to check out all the exciting announcements I've got going on, including the launch of my Patreon! ♥

Welcome to the new Tessisamess!

Hey guys! I'm back in action and bringing a bunch of exciting announcements along with me! Keep reading to find out everything new going on here at [info]tessisamess—I promise you won't be disappointed!

A Brand New Look!

If you're reading this on your friends list, be sure and head over to my journal and check out the new digs! I've fully redesigned to (hopefully) give you a better browsing experience, complete with my first official logo!

The Layout Shop!

What's the Layout Shop? It's a brand new feature here on [info]tessisamess, where you can purchase ready-made layouts fully stocked with all the bells and whistles, just like my commission pieces! When you buy a layout from the shop you're also getting personalized edits from me so that it's all ready for your character when you get it!

What's this mean? You get your completed layout quickly and at cheaper prices—we all win! (No really—complete game bundles in the new shop are now only $100 USD—this is the first time I've ever been able to offer prices this low!) Head on over to see what's available for purchase!

Now on Patreon!

That's right! I am now on Patreon and offering a lot of pretty rad rewards to my patrons! Why have I made this decision? Well, a few reasons! I really need to be making a small monthly income to be able to keep coding for you guys, and if we start hitting goals I'll be able to post a lot more free content and with a lot more frequency!

I'll also have the time to expand to other types of codes, like HTML pages, Tumblr codes with advanced programming, and Dreamwidth codes! With Patreon, you can all look forward to a monthly schedule of steady code and layout releases, as well as Patreon-exclusive codes for certain patron levels!

Custom Commissions

My custom layout post is, unfortunately, disabled for the time being. I'm sorry there had to be a bad announcement on the post! I've had to finally admit to myself that the amount of work for the low prices I charge is too much for me to handle, so this post will stay decommissioned in favor of the layout shop and my Patreon for the time being. I may bring it back in the future or for special events, but I sincerely hope that you all love the new options as much as I do!

Code Tester v3.0!

And that brings us back around to good news again! I've been wanting to do this for a while now, but just haven't had the time. The next time you use my tried and true code tester you'll see some big changes! What changes, you may ask? Syntax highlighting, automatic previews, and one-click saving of any codes you edit or make! Welcome to the newest version of the Tessisamess Code Tester; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

The Ultimate Generator Tutorial


This is a tutorial I've been meaning to do for literal years! It took forever to get to it, but today we're going to pick apart the train wreck that is Generator in hopes that more people can actually use it to create custom content. Exciting stuff!

This tutorial is going to cover any and everything I've ever learned while fighting working with Generator, so it's going to be extremely long. It's worth it, though; I promise! If you've ever wanted to make your own Generator layout, but the task seemed too daunting, you are right where you need to be. And, with that, away we go!

Don't forget to post the creations you make using this new workable base at [info]rpresources and the new community, [info]s1generator, which I've created for all Generator-specific needs!
