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! ♡

Need an invite?

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!

Layout: Icon Directory


image preview | [info]tess072


Information

Hey guys! This layout is a match for the HTML page for this month so that we can have something IJ-friendly! Obviously you can't combine-search the tags like in the HTML page, but AH WELL. This layout is intended for tagging systems that use the tag: tagname system, but if you don't use multi-level tags this will still work! You just won't have sectioned off tag groups. You can retroactively rename tags without needing to re-tag anything here!

This is also a layout remake of my very first public layout over at [info]tess001. Yikes, I know lmfao. It's a hard layout to use, but the idea was there! This is a much better execution of the sentiment lmfao. Enjoy! ♥

Icons used in the demo are from the lovely [info]figmented!

If you'd like your entries to look just like the demo the setup is super simple! Just use the PB name as your journal title and the code below for your entry content. As long as your icons are multiples of three you can use less or more previews if desired!

AHHH TY I'm CRAZY hype about these icon directories!!

Oh man, I am so close to changing my layout to this with adjusted colors/fonts.

Join me in matching layouts

Already there. Fixing the background at some point to make it easier to read, but tags first.

Pretty. Hi. I'm procastinating so I'm stalking you ;)

Okay. Layout/IJ question. Is there a way to hardcode a set number of 'visible' tags? I don't necessarily want all my subjects visible, but I want them available for people to locate other sets of the same subject. I limited the number of visible tags in the customize journal setting to only 20.... yet ALL of them are visible

Yes! If you go to the Sidebars section you'll see Cut off tag display in sidebar after certain limit. and Limit of tags to display in Tags sidebar.

Set the first one to Yes and input a specific number into the second one and you're good! However I have the "view all" link hidden on this specific layout so you'll want to remove it from the hidden elements list:

.module-customtext, .module-customtext2, .module-viewlinks, .module-calendar, .all-link, .module-about, .module-syndicate, .module-powered, .module-ads{display:none;}

And then add this to your layout:

.all-link{font-size:10px;font-weight:bold;text-align:center;text-transform:uppercase;}
.all-link a{color:var(--accent);}
.all-link a:hover{color:var(--accent2);}

So I had already added a link to view all tags. So I'm not worried about having to make things visible or not. And I thought I cut off tags. Unless I did something wrong?

YESSSSSS IT LOOKS AMAZING WITH FULL TAGS AND SETS!!
Sep. 4th, 2019 11:21 pm (UTC)

Sep. 5th, 2019 02:03 am (UTC)

Thank you! ♥ Your icon journal looks awesome with it in!
Sep. 5th, 2019 02:06 am (UTC)
Thanks! It needs a bit more work but also I'm being lazy.
Sep. 5th, 2019 02:11 am (UTC)

Sep. 5th, 2019 02:12 am (UTC)

Totally using it on my icon journal now, thank you so much ♥
Sep. 5th, 2019 08:09 pm (UTC)
This is AMAZING. I mean I'm not an iconner, I'm a capper, but I love organization so much and these are gorgeous.
Sep. 5th, 2019 08:38 pm (UTC)
Aw, ty ty!! This would honestly be EXTREMELY easy to use for caps instead if you use tags! You'd basically just opt out of using the entry format I've got included.
Sep. 5th, 2019 10:57 pm (UTC)
I've gone and completely modified it for this journal too cause gdi Tess
Sep. 7th, 2019 03:39 pm (UTC)
