It's finally time!

From an updated look to repaired and completely new site features, Sanity's ultimate goal is to give users the things they need. It's 2018, and the internet is a very different place than it was ten—or even five!—years ago. The evolution of the internet means sites need to evolve with it or get left in the dust.

Unfortunately (but understandably), a lot of the tools we love to use for our journaling sites have long since been abandoned, so I decided to create an extension with the hopes of breathing new life into Insanejournal, both in appearance and function.

Whether you're a roleplayer, a personal blogger, or you post fanfiction or resources, Sanity's here to help make your experience better. Sanity doesn't focus on one type of site user so much as all of us! While the majority of us are here to roleplay and/or create related resources for the hobby, all the tools I've integrated into the Sanity extension are here to fit any need!

Read more about the Sanity extension, view the screenshot gallery, and get a sneak peek at upcoming features at sanity!

Note: The Firefox version of this extension will be released ASAP! It's ready to go! I just need to find some info that I need before I can publish it.
$34.99 USD

Eeeee, thank you!!!! I'm so glad you love it! ♥ I've had the beta running for ages while I worked on it and I honestly can't live without it now LOL.

This looks so awesome! I will probably wait for the Firefox version because I can't live without my icon randomizer (ahem feel free to add that to your planned feature list, too, just saying - it's the only feature of livejournal hook that even still works for me and I looove it)

I'm super excited to try it out when the Firefox version does come out, though!

Heeee ty ty! I'm hoping to have it out on Monday; I'm just struggling to find the info I need for paid add-ons, and I think I may need to add my own payment method into that version, so we'll just... see what happens I guess lmao.

That's a great idea, though! I'll definitely add that one to the upcoming features and work it in; I know you're not the only one who uses that, so that'll be awesome!

RUDE Firefox lol.
I’m definitely looking forward to trying it out when you do get that sorted! :)

Does that mean that maybe...MAYBE...we'll get functions that LJ Hook used to give us?! And comment editing?!
Oh god, you have no idea how happy I am hearing such things.
There have been many times I have considered moving all of my stuff over to DW, but the amount of time and actual effort to rebuild everything again...I feel like I would just end up scrapping it all instead.

Totally anticipating the FF version. :)

This is so cool! Once I start work again I will definitely be purchasing! As well as getting back to your patreon!

I totally feel that LOL. You're gonna love it!! ♥

Alright, time to be serious.

Thank you so much for this. I've loved IJ for years, and your work. I've learned so much about CSS from your codes. But, I've never been able to really pull friends to IJ successfully from DW, where I have to pay for more icons versus what IJ can handle, because it just won't update itself to a more modern journaling experience. I'm so happy for this I teared up and almost cried. I'm not joking.

Once the FireFox edition is released, you can bet I'm getting this to support you. As well as dropping by your Patreon. Thank you so much for all your work over the years, Tess. You're fantastic and I always keep looking forward to your new projects. ♥

Quick question: Can I finally edit my damn comments with Sanity or do I need a paid account for that?

Given I completely messed up my own meme and typoed this wrong.

I'm crying lmfao. Thank you so so so much! ♥ Believe me I COMPLETELY get it.

Unfortunately, comment editing is still in no way a native feature to Insanejournal regardless of account type, and as far as I'm aware Squeaky has no plans to release any new site features. That being said, comment editing is absolutely something I'm hoping to implement into future updates! I say this very tentatively as I'm not 100% sure I'll be able to do this with my limited access, but if there's a way to do it from my position I fully plan on it! You can read about all current and upcoming features, as well as what Sanity doesn't/can't do right here!

Meme accomplished.

I had the feeling it was tied into the native code, but, thought it couldn't hurt to ask! He should just hire you, partner with you, and you guys can make a beautiful website together. I'm just saying.

Thank you! &heats;

constantly in awe of your awesomeness! seriously this is amazing and i can't imagine the amount of work it must've taken.

i have to wait until my next payment but i'm definitely looking at getting this.

'Repair 'Select All' function in Notifications' omg the fact that this feature of IJ's just doesn't work at all is really irksome and is the main reason i don't track threads in my RP games. will be exciting to see if it's doable

Tess, any update on when the FF edition will be released? I have been doing a search every once in a while, but am not seeing it.

I love you and this but I am poor. Soon. Soon...
