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: The Console


image preview | [info]tess068


Information

This layout brought to you by gradients lmfao. It's been a super long week with trips in and out of town, so I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. The Console is a self-contained layout made to match the bio code Io I put up last week. Have fun customizing the colors to make cool gradient combos! (You can also replace any RGBA value with a HEX value for solid colors.) Can't wait to see edits of this, and maybe even some edits to make this layout non-scifi! A quick way to remove the scifi feel from this layout would be to scale back on the use of gradients and transparency and then to do a search on border-radius and remove all instances found. Enjoy! ♥

This is super neat. I really like the shapes you have going on in this layout.

This is your resident space assorted crap lover saying I am shook. I mean your stuff is always flawless but this is just... JUST.

sorry if this sounds dumb, but i can't figure out how to activate the sidebar links where you have patreon and etc. i don't usually work in s2 so i'm sure it's super obvious and i'm just not seeing it, but i tried adding on links.bml and in custom text 2 and stuff but nothing worked. could you screencap and show me where it goes?

Absolutely! S2 is a LOT to deal with when you're super used to S1 haha, it isn't dumb at all trust me. ♥

So when you go to Basics > your links list you've got a weird looking list of slots. Here's a quick image breakdown of how it works!



If it's still not showing up for you, you may want to check the Sidebars area of your Custom Options page and make sure one of the dropdowns is set to display it.

Feel super dumb lol

In this account, I am using this layout. I didn't mess with anything but the sidebar image but for some reason, when you click over to Friends view, it goes a bit wonky and puts 03 as the header instead of James Tiberius Kirk as it is for the rest. Can you help me fix this?

I absolutely love your work! Been using it for yeeeears. <3

Re: Feel super dumb lol

Oh no! Okay so, on this page does your Friends Page Title say 03? If so, just change that to say the same thing as Journal Title and you should be all fixed! ♥

Thank you so much!

Re: Feel super dumb lol

It does not which was why I thought it strange.

Re: Feel super dumb lol

Okay so I had no title or friend title put in. This fixed it! Thank you!

Re: Feel super dumb lol

No problem at all! ♥ A really good caveat to know and have recognized in the comments, honestly. I had completely forgotten that whatever you change the friends link text to is what your friends' page is called unless you give the friends' page a title. WHOOPS LOL.

Re: Feel super dumb lol

All good! I hope my small edits are worthy of the beauty of this layout and the biopage that goes with it.
