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!

first of all, I adore you. I use your codes all the time, and any time I've ever gotten stuck or had a question you've been so great. It's awesome that you do all you do ♥

I generally feel pretty okay about tweaking existing codes if necessary, but I'd really like to get more involved and knowledgeable in creation from scratch. I was wondering if you have any advice/resources you might want to point someone towards for learning about the sorts of layouts/codes that can be used on IJ? If not, I totally understand, and I know you're incredibly busy. Either way, thank you for all you do. I'm hoping to donate to your patron when I get paid next. ;) (That's not a bribe or anything, I've wanted to donate to you for a long time either way :-P)

Aw no, thank you! ♥ (And thank you for always taking the time to comment on new posts, it means a lot!)

I've probably got a million and one tips and places and applications, haha, yeah! What sort of starting point do you have in mind and what kind of resources are you looking for? That'll help me narrow it down!

Unless you just meant which code languages can be used on IJ, haha. In that case it'd be CSS and HTML.

Oh sorry, my bad. XD As far as creating s2 journal layouts go? I can find some old guides on LJ, but nothing IJ-specific.

Oh yeah, this site was much worse about making full guides when it was in full community swing lmfao. There used to be all sorts of people posting good guides on LJ back in the early '00s—it was great!

As for creating S2 layouts, there aren't any tutorials for them for this site (I looked way back when I started making them too!) That being said, I could do some public documentation for the S2 Complete Style stylesheet! Break down what each container is and all that.

I've been meaning to for ages because the one you get off the source page is sort of a mess (though it does offer some guidance comments), so the one I have saved locally is a cleaned up version of it with everything rearranged to make more sense; that's the version you guys get when I post S2 layouts.
