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: Casting Call


Two Column (Sidebar on Left) | Two Column (Sidebar on Right) | [info]tess073


Information

Hey guys! It's been a hot minute since I've made a cast list journal layout, and since the last time was more of a trial run/surface approach, this time I really dug into everything and made this as versatile as possible. Everything can be quickly and easily resized via the :root, which includes the header, header icon, sidebar, and entries. You can also choose how many characters (ie. entries) you want in each row.

Additionally, I've added easy access to editing your entries so there's no need this time to remember an entry URL link. If you're logged into the account, you'll see a handy edit button on each entry to provide owner-accessibility without visitors seeing unneeded elements. As usual, to retain usability, this non-standard entry setup does not effect your friends page or the day page.

And as if I haven't rambled enough, if you want to use this as a regular journal, either to match your game comms or just because you like the vibe but don't need cast entries, all you need to do is choose Two Column (Sidebar on Right) instead of Two Column (Sidebar on Left) to have a standard journal! Enjoy! 💖

A NOTE: If switching to Casting Call from Cast Sorter, you can do so without needing to change your entry coding!

Layout Coding



Entry Coding

No special steps needed! Just add the following code to an entry, fill it out, and tag the post. Pictures do not need to be square to fit; just make sure they're at least as large as the background space they're filling on Recent.


Installation Guide

♡ Go to Basics and choose S2 for your style system, fill in your title, then save.
♡ Fill in your Links List if desired, then save.
♡ Go to Look and Feel, choose Complete Style, then save.
♡ Go to Custom Options and choose the following options:
Layout Type:
Cast list entries: Two Column (Sidebar on Left)
Regular entries: Two Column (Sidebar on Right)
Disable customized comment pages for your journal: Yes
Navigation link names: Recent/Archive/Friends/Profile
Fill in custom sidebar module with image if desired.
Fill in second custom sidebar module with blurb if desired.
Person to credit if you have an individually created layout: Layout

Terms of Use

♡ Do not remove credit.
♡ Do not redistribute my codes in part or in whole (posting a copy for players to use in your game is fine with a link to original post.)
♡ If you break something during editing, please feel free to drop me a comment and I'll help as best I can!
♡ I love seeing edits! This isn't a rule, but if you have a cool edit of one of my codes I'd love to see it!

I just redid my character lists lol, but I definitely have to find an excuse to use this.

I AM SO IN LOVE

AHHH TY!! I'm SUPER happy with this as a step up from the last cast list journal I made.

My muse list needs a serious update, but I'm using it over here! I was previously using the old one, but I love this one more!

Also, I started using Sanity recently, and I'm loving it.

This is absolutely amazing and a PERFECT set up for a PSL comm... *goes to work*

Oooh, I do love this!

Question - if I were to start using this for a journal that I've got using the old cast list layout, is it compatible, or will I need to edit those entries from scratch?

Oh, thank you so much for reminding me! I meant to make a note about that: Yes, you can switch to this layout from my previous cast list layout without needing to change your entry coding!

Excellent! I foresee some design changes in my future XD

I decided to go a different route, and made this into a writing prompt board type of thing. As always, love your work! Thank you so much for sharing this, and I hope you are having a good new year so far! <3
