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 prev | [info]tess001
This layout comes with a matching profile code.
Be sure to check the test journal's profile to get it!



001: Informative Info
Tess makes free layouts now! Weeoooo. I probably won't do these too often since I still need to make some money, honey, but I'll be posting some free for use layouts here from time to time, both because it's fun and to promote the fact that, yes, I do take layout commissions; yay!

This layout is perfect for icon makers and people who have journals dedicated to character rosters—yes! Those little white icon squares are the entries themselves. No big coding hassles, no massive customization of every single entry. Just a layout and line of code whenever you post to have a compact icon journal! It also comes with a matching profile code and a short and simple how-to guide for making your entries fit the layout.
002: The Layout


003: Directions
→Go to Basics, choose S2, fill in your title and subtitle if desired, then save.
→Go to Look and Feel, choose Bloggish for the layout and None for the theme, then save.
→Go to Custom Options, and choose the following:
→Layout Type: Two column (Sidebar on left)
→Number of journal entries to show on recent entries page: Pick a large number (I'd suggest 300+)
→Disable customized comment pages for your journal: Yes
→Custom stylesheet: Input the code above and save
→Go to Basics > your link list and put in your journal's recent/profile/friends/archive/tag links. If you want a title other than LINKS use the first link space for your desired title and leave the URL field of it blank.
004: CTRL+F This Shit
Titillium Web to change the font.
#ccc url(http://i.imgur.com/30tOicV.png) to change background color and image.
#000 to change base font color.
#eee to change link color.
#fff to change entry background, link hover, and subtitle color.
#999 to change header and sidebar background color.
#ccc to change sidebar title background color.
#555 to change link color on tags page.
#aaa and #ccc to change the scrollbar colors.
005: Rules and Shit
→Credit me either in your link list or your profile.
→Do not remove my credit from the CSS.
→Do not redistribute in part or in whole.
→If you break something during editing don't be scared to ask me to see what happened. Yep. That's a rule.
→If you're a maker like I am and you do something cool with this I'd really like to see it, but it's not necessary.
Using on DW?

You are such an enabler!!!

Saved for future use because let's face it I don't do enough shit with your codes.

I tried to go and look at Light &Simple.

I tried to go and look at Light & Simple, but the link was broken and I couldn't view it. Just a head's up.

Re: I tried to go and look at Light &Simple.

That's because I hadn't posted it yet. I always update my coding to accommodate new posts before I post them. Thanks though!

This is really cool. Saving for future use at [info]justlikeastar.
Dec. 13th, 2013 02:06 am (UTC)
Hee, thank you! Lemme know when you're done with the redo? I'm so excited to see it actually in use on an icon comm, ngl.
Dec. 13th, 2013 02:32 am (UTC)
Um this looks amazing and I am kind of tempted to use it over at [info]abeautifulmind when I get less lazy...
Dec. 13th, 2013 04:30 am (UTC)
Haha, glad you like it! :D
Dec. 13th, 2013 02:43 am (UTC)
o___o This is the coolest, most tempting thing ever.
Dec. 13th, 2013 04:09 am (UTC)
Heee, tysm! ♥ *TEMPTS*
Dec. 13th, 2013 03:59 pm (UTC)
If your entries have userpics, will this still work? I'm probably just being a fail, but I couldn't get this to work unless I changed my entries to no default userpics. >_>
Dec. 13th, 2013 05:25 pm (UTC)
That's strange! Let me stick icons into [info]tess001 and see why the code that hides the userpics isn't working, then I'll update the code so it can be used with icons in place. :3 So sorry about that!
Dec. 13th, 2013 05:45 pm (UTC)
All fixed! I just forgot to nix the margin on the user link under the pics, haha. The fixed code is in this entry! Just copy and paste and it should fix it. :D
Dec. 13th, 2013 05:50 pm (UTC)
You are a goddess ♥
Dec. 13th, 2013 06:08 pm (UTC)
Psh. ♥ No prob! Glad to have it fixed. :D
Dec. 14th, 2013 10:44 pm (UTC)
Saving this! I need something like this!

Will definitely be using at [info]quieticons in the future :D
Mar. 29th, 2014 11:29 pm (UTC)
Oh my GOD I totally want to go redo [info]facesinthecrowd now. Would I have to go back through all my exiting entries to put the code in the "entry how-to" part into each post?

Because I am lazy as hell and ughhhh the thought lol

But it is SO PERFECT
Mar. 30th, 2014 02:50 am (UTC)
Ahaha, unfortunately yeah. This layout's probably really time consuming for icon journals that have been posting for a while.
Mar. 31st, 2014 05:14 pm (UTC)
Would that I had had this when I first started it up. Alas! I'll just have to find some other use for it at some point!
Aug. 24th, 2014 03:12 am (UTC)
Hey, trying to use this but for some reason it's not really working, like the post links are showing up all the way to the left hidden behind the sidebar thing? IDK what I am doing wrong??? (And it's for this journal.)
Aug. 24th, 2014 03:17 am (UTC)
NVM I AM DUMB. Thanks for this though, using it for this journal!
Nov. 30th, 2014 07:25 am (UTC)
Trying to use it here :)
Nov. 30th, 2014 11:07 am (UTC)
Also JYSK it doesn't work if the journal has icons uploaded!
