Layouts, Codes, Tutorials, & Resources

Hey there, I'm Tess!

Welcome to my blog; I make lots of different layouts, codes, tutorials, and other resources for Insanejournal and Dreamwidth RPers! There's a lot to choose from and brand new content goes up every week!

Take a look around, and don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it!

Can't get enough resources? Why not subscribe to my Patreon for exclusive monthly content, or support the creation of more content by leaving a tip on Ko-Fi! ♡

If you're unable to comment on my journal to ask for help now that anon has been turned off due to serious spam issues, don't worry! Just shoot me an email and I'll send you an invite code for Insanejournal. I've got plenty to spare!

Please Note:

I do not offer assistance with any sites other than IJ and DW unless it is for general HTML and CSS (ie. custom hosted pages and similar.) I cannot convert a code to a new site's rules because there are a lot of niche RP sites, and I have no way of knowing each one's limitations and caveats. Sorry about that!

Sanity is now FREE!



Sanity is now FREE! Thank you guys so much for helping me reach the goal to make this happen. I'll be adding some needed updates to the Chrome version this month (June 2019), and then I'll add them to the Firefox version and put it up in their extensions! You can install it on Chrome here, and read more about this project at [info]sanity!

UPDATE #1 Round one of updates will be live as soon as Chrome finishes processing the new version, so be sure to update your extensions if Chrome doesn't automatically prompt you! View the full list of repairs, additions, and a new feature!

UPDATE #2 Minor update to the extension (seriously so teeny lmao.) Also, see this thread for troubleshooting ideas if you've installed the extension and it isn't taking effect.
Auction!

Wow I don't know how I missed this before, but this is STUNNING. Who knew IJ could look so modern?
Jun. 5th, 2019 06:59 am (UTC)
OH NO LOL. WELL, IT'S A FUN SURPRISE THEN. ♥ TY TY!!!
Jun. 4th, 2019 11:08 pm (UTC)
Oh yay. I felt bad wanting to wait till it was free but I've had no money for it :(
Jun. 5th, 2019 07:00 am (UTC)
Haha, it's all good.

This is wonderful! It's perfect and beautiful and I love it. Just one small thing. I see the random search feature, but where will I find the normal search?
Jun. 5th, 2019 05:50 am (UTC)
Thank you!!! ♥ The normal search was removed because I assumed (very dumbly lmfao) that no one used it. I'm actually in the process of banging out some small bug fixes I've been meaning to fix this year to update the extension with this week, and I've already added in a new version of the search function that omits the broken search parameters from the list, so it should be back in action in a few days or less!
Jun. 5th, 2019 06:48 am (UTC)
Excellent! Because I'm really loving not only the look but the fact that it fixed a few issues for me like spellcheck no longer working. My friend and I were just like how are we going to search for journal names for new characters now just to be told the name as been deleted and purged. lol
Jun. 5th, 2019 06:55 am (UTC)
LOL I feel you! I actually wound up getting the initial update done just now and updated the extension, though it's going to take an hour or so to show up in the Chrome store, so I recommend updating your extension later tonight or tomorrow and the search function will be available! Full list of repairs, additions, and a new feature!
Jun. 5th, 2019 10:39 pm (UTC)
Perfect! Thank you!
Jun. 6th, 2019 12:02 am (UTC)
Absolutely, no problem!

ICON RANDOMIZER YESSSSS! I've been using the Chrome version for awhile now and I am so happy you added this feature!
Jun. 5th, 2019 05:11 pm (UTC)
I did notice that on the icon randomizer for a new post, it doesn't refresh the icon preview - so I wanted to suggest maybe fixing that on a future release, but it's so great to have the randomizer, thank youuuu!
Jun. 5th, 2019 09:26 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's annoying! I'll add that to my to do list! Additionally, just so you're aware, the randomizer doesn't work on ?mode=reply pages, but I'm adding that support in now! It's just being finicky because the select menu is different from the standard icon select menu, because of course it is lmao.
Jun. 6th, 2019 06:09 pm (UTC)
Just a mild inconvenience :) i super love having this feature, anyway!
Jun. 6th, 2019 07:16 pm (UTC)
(PS I fixed the ?mode=reply issue last night LOL so now it's just the previewer on entry posting.)
Jun. 6th, 2019 07:58 pm (UTC)
👍👍👍👍
Jun. 5th, 2019 09:14 pm (UTC)
I swear I can screw up anything...lol. I added it to my Chrome extensions and nothing happened. I don't know if I have something else that is blockint it or what but it doesn't work for me.
Jun. 5th, 2019 09:29 pm (UTC)
Oh no, that's strange! It should automatically work. If you haven't already checked a new IJ page or refreshed a currently open one, I'd suggest trying that. If that doesn't work, check your extensions and make sure it's toggled to ON.



I'd update Chrome and restart it if none of the above works. Let me know if none of those options work!
Jun. 5th, 2019 09:34 pm (UTC)
I did that and still nothing. Up in the corner on my extensions page is a thing that says "developer mode" and it's turned off but I figured that wouldn't have anything to do with it since I'm not buliding anything.

Would running an ad blocker have anything to do with it?
Jun. 5th, 2019 10:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah, developer mode is just for when you've got a working file for an extension uploaded (so, for instance, I have that turned on while I work on updates for the extension so I can live test them) and you won't need that turned on.

I used to have Adblocker and it never interfered with it, and my new adblock extension also doesn't, so I doubt that's the culprit.

However, your antivirus may be blocking it. My antivirus (Bitdefender) has a blast blocking literally everything so I have to add exclusions. It wasn't messing with Sanity iirc, but it was making Rabbit fail constantly so I set my exclusions to exclude the entire local folder that has all of my extensions. If you think this could be the issue, find your antivirus' exclusion area, click to exclude a folder, and add this:

c:\users\USERNAME\appdata\local\google\chrome\user data\default\extensions\
Jun. 6th, 2019 01:32 am (UTC)
I think it probably is my anti virus because I remember having to do something with it before. I tried to add the exception but I'm not sure what goes in the username area that you have highlighted.

I am so sorry to keep asking questions!
Jun. 6th, 2019 02:44 am (UTC)
It's okay! It's whatever you have your computer named as, like mine says 'Tessisamess' in that spot. (I'm not sure what OS you're on, but I'm assuming some sort of Windows OS for this. I'm on an older Windows OS because I'm finicky LOL.) If you're still unsure of what your user account name is, you can go to C:\Users and user accounts should each have their own folder in that directory.

I just wanted to share that I got this to work on Opera just fine!

I contributed to your patreon and waited for this to go free so I could experiment without paying for it.

Thank you, Tess!!!
Jun. 6th, 2019 12:01 am (UTC)
OH GOOD, tysm for the info! I'll put confirmation in the Sanity information so that anyone who uses Opera knows they'll be able to use it!
Jun. 6th, 2019 01:14 am (UTC)
ahhhh i bought this back when i was using chrome but had to abandon it when i switched to firefox — i'm so glad it'll be coming to firefox soon! i had a question about a possible new feature on your list — thread expanding: still gonna be a thing? i'm a dw transplant and honestly that is one of the biggest things that makes ij difficult for me to switch to.

thanks for all your hard work! i'm so excited to use this on firefox, ahhhh
Jun. 6th, 2019 01:22 am (UTC)
AW YAY!!! I'll hopefully have it up by this time next week! It's so funny you mention the thread unfolder, because that's what I'm currently trying to get working. The hard part is none of the past thread unfolder codes seem to work anymore, so I'm not having a super fun time reading through them lmao. If I can get it working though, it will 100% be in the next update this month!
Jun. 7th, 2019 04:55 am (UTC)
I have a working unfolder script using tapermonkey on firefox, if that helps?
Jun. 7th, 2019 05:05 am (UTC)
That would be stellar, yeah! I nabbed one from someone else who has a working one but I'm unable to get it firing correctly, so another copy would be great! I want to see if the issue is the script or just good old human error haha.
Jun. 7th, 2019 05:13 am (UTC)
Thank you kindly! ♥
Jun. 7th, 2019 06:02 pm (UTC)
look, i'm not gonna say this made me cry because it is so beautiful and amazing and user-friendly...but i'm not not going to say that either
Jun. 8th, 2019 06:10 am (UTC)
This is amazing...! I'm going to totally let me friends on Dreamwidth know about this. I know some of them have been interested in taking the plunge to this side for a long while, but the design and coding of the site turned them off. With this I'm sure they'll be more willing to give this amazing site a shot.

The level of work and dedication and passion you have for this is amazing, Tess, and truly inspirational. Thank you so much for all your hard work and commitment to coding, designing, and working with the wild, wild internet site of journal sites!
Jun. 10th, 2019 02:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for this. <3
Jun. 25th, 2019 05:02 am (UTC)
This was so incredibly generous of you to create and share, let alone to make it free! I've been using your resources on various RP journals for years, and recommend you to everyone I know. Here's a heartfelt thank you, so much for ALL the hard work that you do for the journal-blogging/RP community!
