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!

Layout: The Silvis


image prev | [info]tess016


001: Informative Info
Here's a quick layout I've been meaning to finish and post that wound up matching my last two codes, so I stuck em in! Features a one blurb sidebar with custom inner coding and room for an icon; enabled modules are: custom text, links list, and tags. We've also got some large headers going on, side positioned footer links, and rounded icons, all wrapped up in a minimalist package. Enjoy! <3
002: The Layout


003: Directions
→Go to Basics, choose S2, fill in your title and subtitle if desired, then save.
→Go to Links List, fill in your links if desired, then save (remember to use the first link title with no URL for your link module title.)
→Go to Look and Feel, choose Complete Style for the layout, then save.
→Go to Custom Options, and choose the following:
→Layout Type: Two column (Sidebar on left)
→Disable customized comment pages for your journal: Yes

→Link text to leave a comment: Comment

→Fill in sticky note and title if desired.

→Body of custom sidebar module:
<center><img src="YOURICON"></center>
<b><a href="http://JOURNALNAME.insanejournal.com/">JOURNAL TITLE</a></b><!---
---><h4>THIS IS A JOURNAL SUBTITLE</h4><div class="my-nav"><hr><!---

---><a href="http://JOURNALNAME.insanejournal.com/friends">Friends</a><!---
---><a href="http://JOURNALNAME.insanejournal.com/profile">Profile</a><hr></div>
<i>YOUR BLURB</i>

*remember to fill these in or your nav links won't work!

→Person to credit if you have an individually created layout: Layout by Tessisamess
→URL to link the credit to: http://tessisamess.insanejournal.com/

Okay, this is stunning. I love it but I was just wondering if there was any way to make the sidebar stationary?
Jan. 14th, 2016 11:07 pm (UTC)
I really like this layout, and currently reading the Raven Cycle series. Seems perfectly suited!

Taking and crediting! Also using your biosheet: slides for a profile.

I seriously love this layout. Made edits for aliciabspinnet
Jan. 17th, 2016 07:10 pm (UTC)
I am using this on this journal and I am wondering if there is a way to make it show tag use counts on the tags page. I've been playing with the code, but I can't seem to figure it out!
Jan. 19th, 2016 08:52 pm (UTC)
I love this layout! but I have a couple questions. I'm trying to add the sidebar right but I don't know how to do it. =( How do I get it to show up? Am I doing something wrong or is there something special I need to do?
Jan. 22nd, 2016 05:21 am (UTC)
Yaaaaas. Please take this gift of food in exchange for this lovely layout.

Jan. 23rd, 2016 03:26 am (UTC)
I will be playing with this for hours and days until you come up with another layout I love.



It's the circle of liiiife... and I'm going to show myself out now.
Jan. 23rd, 2016 08:07 am (UTC)

I addddoooore this. Buuut one tiny question/request. The list on the right for comment/etc I'd really love to have in floating boxes in one line underneath the entry. I figured out which part needs editing, but I am unsure of the coding for how to have it float beneath. Haaaaaalp?

ummm

I coped the code and put it in your code tester but it doesnt seem to be working...not sure what i did wrong? Plz help
Feb. 24th, 2016 07:45 pm (UTC)
I have a dumb question (okay, 2 dumb questions):

1. Where do I add the title for "Navigation" above the links?

and 2. Is it possible to have 2 boxes for links, rather than just the one?

thank you for your lovely layouts!

AAAAAAAAAA SAVING THIS FOR THE FUTURE!
Apr. 15th, 2016 11:22 am (UTC)
I am a big fan of the layout. It will be in use under this journal, which is a writing project. I only hope it turns out as beautifully as this layout!
Dec. 12th, 2016 01:55 pm (UTC)
Hey! We love love love this layout, but we're having a slight issue!

Our table here(thanks again!) seems to have a grey bar on the side as viewed in the layout, and we aren't sure why/how to fix it!

If you could help that would be ♥

Thanks for all you do!
Dec. 25th, 2016 08:47 am (UTC)
Hi Tess! I hope you're having a great Christmas!

I love the layout, but I am running into a slight problem, and TL;DR- I would like to change the fonts to something slightly more ~futuristic, but am clearly failing? I need your 'fonts for Dummies'. :/
Mar. 10th, 2017 09:17 pm (UTC)
I really love this layout and would like to use it with a few small tweaks, but I'm running into a problem. Instead of an icon at the top of the side bar, I'd like a slightly larger gif. When I try to do that instead, the image is shrunk to 100x100 size. Where do I tweak this? >_>
