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!

Sanity is now FREE!



Sanity is now FREE! Thank you guys so much for helping me reach the goal to make this happen. I'll be adding some needed updates to the Chrome version this month (June 2019), and then I'll add them to the Firefox version and put it up in their extensions! You can install it on Chrome here, and read more about this project at [info]sanity!

UPDATE #1 Round one of updates will be live as soon as Chrome finishes processing the new version, so be sure to update your extensions if Chrome doesn't automatically prompt you! View the full list of repairs, additions, and a new feature!

UPDATE #2 Minor update to the extension (seriously so teeny lmao.) Also, see this thread for troubleshooting ideas if you've installed the extension and it isn't taking effect.

Introducing: The Mod Bundle!


[info]modbundle | [info]modcomm

Consider this your one-stop-shop for all things needed to set your new games up, or to revamp existing games! This journal doubles as a live demo of what this bundle does, how it looks, and options it has available—all codes needed are provided on this account for ease of use, and there are a lot of entry code options and layout setup options, so be sure to take a good look around!

Be sure to friend or track [info]modbundle if you'd like updates on when new styles for entry templates are available, ask any questions you have at the helpdesk, and check out [info]modcomm for a live demo of this bundle's community option!

Please note: The community's layout is the same layout seen on the Mod Bundle, just with a different page configuration chosen in the menus and an added splash page! That's right—you can edit this layout once and then use it across all of your game accounts. Hell yeah!

It's finally time!

INTRODUCING... SANITY
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.

S2 Complete Documentation

S2
COMPLETE STYLE
FULL LAYOUT DOCUMENTATION
It had to wait a month thanks to the flu, but it's finally here—that's right, guys! A complete documentation of S2 Complete Style and all its components. I've done things a little differently this time around, so my Generator documentation might get an overhaul sometime this year to match, but rest assured it's still just as thorough!

[info]s2complete comes with chapter-based lessons on each section of the layout base, breaking it down into small, easy to manage pieces and working from the ground up.

So what are we waiting for? Let's start learning!

Resource Masterpost

To kick off 2018, I've created an extensive post for everything I use or have used to make my work life easier and more efficient! All links are for free resources because, even though I do pay for resources to be able to create the best content I can for you all, I know free is always best for personal use.

If you want to be notified when this post gets updated, just track my updates thread! I'll post a comment each time I update the list. Have questions and/or need specific recommendations? Leave a comment! You'll probably remind me of something I meant to put on the list and forgot.

Resource: Comprehensive Mod Checklist



Onward to the checklist!
[Like my code tester, this will be a permanent link, so come back to it anytime you like!]


This has been a looong time coming for me, haha. I've said more than once that I wanted to make something like this for you guys, and it finally happened! Be sure to click things, test things out, the whole nine! I didn't go too overboard on it since I wanted to host it here and not on my site (which eliminated JS), but I think it does the trick. Enjoy! <3

FAQ

Common Issues

Why isn't my Generator layout working?

Generator layouts need the profile's website field filled out, so make sure you've done that! If that's not the issue, feel free to comment for help!

[ this section is under construction ]

Help & Editing

Can you help me fix/edit my code or layout?

Yes! Comment on the post the code/layout originates from and detail your issue, and I'll try and help as soon as I can. Make sure you're commenting from the journal the layout or code is being used on, or link to the appropriate journal or post. If you are unwilling to show me your code, please don't ask for help. I have to see the code to be able to help you.

Can you help me fix/edit someone else's code or layout?

Yes and no. I'll help you fix your own codes if something's going awry or you need a tip on how to achieve a desired effect, but I'm not a fan of editing other people's free-for-use codes. We all have different coding styles and preferences, and it can be harder to read someone else's style than my own, and by extension that makes it take longer to fix, and I just don't have the time. Sorry about that!

I have a Dreamwidth-related question; can you help me?

Hopefully, yes! Check out my Dreamwidth page, and if your question isn't answered there, feel free to ask!

I'm trying to convert your code to work on ______ site; can you help me?

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!

I want to comment but I don't have an account.

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! My gmail is always open at tessisabiiitch!

I asked you a question and you haven't answered, why is that?

The most likely answer is that I checked the email notification and thought I answered you, but didn't actually manage to get that far lmao. If it's been a week and I still haven't answered your question, please don't feel bad about giving me a nudge. Just keep in mind that I usually don't answer comments on weekends, so if you commented sometime on Friday and I didn't have time to get to it, I'll comment you back on Monday!

However, if you asked for help with a code/layout problem and gave me no way to access it, you may want to comment your thread with the appropriate info. (See above, in question #1.)

Teaching & Tutorials

Can you teach me HTML/CSS?

I do not offer one on one classes at this time, because it would be too costly and I doubt there would be too much interest, but I have a bunch of free resources for starting points on how to learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript available here!

Can you teach me how to make a layout?

I do not offer one on one classes at this time. I have, however, compiled and written full documentation on the two most commonly used layout types: S1 Generator and S2 Complete Style!

Can you teach me how to make a type of code effect?

Check out my tutorials! I have a ton of them. If you don't find what you're looking for, please feel free to suggest things for future tutorials—I'm always on the lookout for what kinds of things you guys want to learn how to do!

Can I make suggestions for codes, tutorials, or layouts?

Yes, absolutely! I love stuff like that. Please, just keep in mind my content and design style when making suggestions and requests. If you want old school Generator hacks and HTML tables, that's not really something I have a focus on. I will however take new aesthetics into account if there's enough desire for it!

What do you use for ______?

Check out my resources page, because I try to list everything I use there! If you don't see what you might be looking for, feel free to ask!

Usage of my work

Can I use your code/layout on ______ site?

Sure! Just leave a credit link viewable.

Can I move your credit link somewhere else?

It depends; if you're just rearranging things and it's still on the main page of your layout or on the entry code, go for it. Otherwise, please only move credit to your account profile page if moving credit is needed. If your journal/game/etc. is using predominantly my code, it's fine to remove credit from the entry codes to tidy things up and use one catchall credit link.

Can I edit your codes for personal use/my game/etc.?

Absolutely, have fun!

Can I edit your codes and post them for other people to use?

No, this is against my TOU. Outside of having copy/paste applications in your games etc., please do not repost my codes or edited versions of my codes. If you'd like to implement part of one of my codes into one of your codes for reposting purposes, please comment on the code you're wanting to pull from and let me know; I almost always say it's fine with credit!

What defines using your coding in my codes?

Let's use this code as an example! If you're looking into this code to see how I made the gallery, there's really no way to say a basic implementation of webkit-column is unique to me. It's made more or less the same across the board. If you're using this, it's not really my design so much as a spec for CSS. Feel free to grab it; you don't need to credit me. On the other hand: Copying the header area or the playlist section into one of your codes does count as using my coding. If you're ever unsure if credit is needed, feel free to ask! Generally for larger strings of codes, yes, it's needed; and for basic CSS specs, it isn't.
