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!

FAQ

Do you have a question you need answered before you make a purchase? Feel free to ask me here!

Re: FAQ

Aw thank you!

No, that's absolutely fine! Cutoff for changes is mostly for extremely huge overhauls, but thank you for asking first! If you want any other changes to the appearance, be sure to let me know on the order comment!

Hi! I actually don't take fully custom layout orders here anymore, but if you snag a $50 slot on my Patreon I'd be able to take the order over there! Other than that, the closest thing I have available to order in my shop that I'd be able to edit into having some of the same feel would be Vignettes.

Commission Request?

Hello Tess!
I'm just joining IJ and would love my pages and layouts to look amazing, but my technical skills are from different platforms (great at SQL queries, less so HTML). May I please pay you an amount of your choosing to theme out my pages?
I'm happy to provide images and color schemes (although your input is very welcome). Please let me know what you would need and any questions you would need me to answer for us to get started.

Re: Commission Request?

Hi, and welcome to IJ! Outside of the occasional discounted layout sale here, I only take commissions via Patreon now. You can join the $50/mo tier there and you'll get a custom layout commission for each month that you're subscribed, as well as access to all lower tiers, which contain tons and tons of codes and layouts that aren't available here in my free content!

From there, you can send me a message with your layout information (page setup preferences, layout style preferences, color scheme, images, fonts--anything you have that you want me to use.) If your layout needs exceed the limitations of the tier I'll let you know and I can send you an extra invoice for the difference, but that's usually just for cases of layouts that add in extra page codes, etc.

After your Patreon payment for the month goes through, you're more than welcome to stay on at any of the tiers, or cancel your subscription if you prefer to!

Oh, thank you so much! I don't currently have a custom code tier on Patreon, but I've got time to do this! If $30 USD sounds good to you, just shoot me your PayPal email and I can send you an invoice and have it ready for you before Friday!

Since this is for an entry: Are there any changes you want made to the look of it, and do you want the side text nav or just the arrow links?
Jun. 18th, 2019 07:39 pm (UTC)
That's totally fine, absolutely!

Yeah, I can definitely do that! Just keep in mind that in-entry your font choices are limited to standard web-safe fonts, but if you know what you want your headers to say we could always do transparent image headers for each section if you want a little extra custom flair. If you'd like to go that route, just let me know and if you find a font you like I'll download it and make those!
Jun. 18th, 2019 08:04 pm (UTC)
That works perfectly!

I really like the latter idea. Could we use Rain Tax at all? I like how scratchy it looks, and it would fit really well and be easy to read.
Jun. 18th, 2019 09:32 pm (UTC)
Oh, absolutely! Ugh, cute font, I love it. Do you want the section headers' text to stay the same? Since they'll be images it makes it a little more annoying to change the text up, but if you don't plan on changing the titles it should be totally fine haha.
Jun. 18th, 2019 09:48 pm (UTC)
Yeah, leave the section headers as they are, less work and they still add their own flair! I'm excited! I'll send off the money tomorrow and then link the DW page when I'm finished.
Jun. 21st, 2019 07:26 pm (UTC)
Hey! Just wanted to let you know I'm about 70% done and I'll be done in a couple of hours. One question before I go into making image headers later! What's your character name, for the home page title header?
Jan. 8th, 2020 12:00 am (UTC)
Hi Tess, I'm back again! I'm curious to know if you can take any of your free codes and work them so they can be be used in Dreamwidth comments at all? Would that still fall under the $10-$15 mark or be higher?
Jan. 8th, 2020 12:14 am (UTC)
Heyo! It would depend on the code, but most likely it wouldn't go past $10-$15, yeah! Which code were you interested in? I can go test it in the comment rq and see what needs to be done to it to give you a quote.
Jan. 8th, 2020 12:34 am (UTC)
I was looking at either this one or this one! I'm looking to put in a set of gifs together in a moodboard/gallery that have dimensions of 600x338 (widthxheight), it's for an RP event.
Jan. 8th, 2020 01:51 am (UTC)
Okay, so I'm admittedly not familiar with DW comment limitations. Does it only allow tables? Because when I post a div code and view source to see which parts it's disabling, the div tags aren't in the comment at all, meaning they get completely deleted when the form processes and submits the comment.
Jan. 8th, 2020 01:59 am (UTC)
Just kidding, disregard haha. I did some more testing and I think I'm seeing which things aren't allowed. Either of these should be editable for a comment! Which would you prefer, and which setup from the post(s)? (Or I can do both!)

You can send $10 USD for one or $15 USD for both so you have options to payments@tessisamess.com when you're ready!
Jan. 8th, 2020 02:03 am (UTC)
LMAO PERFECT, ty IJ for lagging on comment notifs.

If I could get both that would be fantastic, I'll send along the $15 momentarily!
Jan. 8th, 2020 02:50 am (UTC)
Okay, quick update: After having to reformat to tables (eugh lmao) I've got one of them working, but the moodboard code with the inset icon might not be doable. I've tried like five different things, but it's blocking me at every turn because the comment keeps eating flex, grid, and margins. 😬 Would you like a simple gallery moodboard to replace it?
Jan. 8th, 2020 02:55 am (UTC)
That works absolutely fine for me! Whatever is easier for you, Tess, as long as I can get the gifs working! Don't stress too much, I just have a lot of images I'd like to arrange neatly and all together so I can put the information below.
