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: Private Affair


Two Column Left | Three Column Middle | [info]tess074


Information

Hey guys! I've been wanting to do a layout geared specifically towards PSL communities for a while now, so here we finally are!

This layout features both hidden and static sidebar options depending on preference, and the root has toggles for all hidden elements so you can still use this as a normal journal if desired. (The Friends page still functions normally regardless, of course.)

Multi-level tags are set up to display as a table of contents. You'll want to format your tags as Volume: Chapter # or similar for this to look right; using actual numbers is essential to get your chapters to order correctly, and you'll want to make sure single digit numbers start with a zero so that chapter 1 and chapter 10 don't end up next to each other. Check out the demo's tags page for reference if needed.

Additionally, for the navigation pages to work (as seen here) your dates will need to be back to back (if chapter 01 is posted on April 1, 2020 then chapter 02 should be April 2, 2020 etc.) It's a little extra work, I know, but having a readable PSL that's set up like an extra cute ebook is so worth it if that's what you're interested in having. You'll want to forego cut text if doing it this way so that you can seamlessly click through arrows to keep reading.

Man, I hope I didn't forget any info lmao. I'll update if I did! Enjoy! 💖

Hey! thanks so much for this, I'm using it over on dreamwidth for my musebox. It's a great layout, I can see it being useful for a number of things.

Just so you know, if you show tags on the main page they run into the post text unless you add display:block; to the .ljtags part and at least on dw, I didn't test it over here, you also need .header-poster { display: none;} elsewise the username/community poster info shows up twice, once below the subject line unstyled and once as intended at the bottom. This code only removes the top one.

I also tweaked it a little to work with a navbar. :)
