Tab icons (favicons) in S2 layouts

I've been asked how to use tab icons (technical term: favicons) on S2 styles many times. While technically there's always been a way to do this, it can seem very daunting and can only be done on paid or permanent accounts, so I've never recommended it (or even used it myself until this month for that matter.)

If you have a paid/perm account and are using an S2 layout, and would like to have a custom icon in your browser tab for your journal, just follow these instructions! )

AND DON'T FORGET to check out all the exciting announcements I've got going on, including the launch of my Patreon! ♥

The Ultimate Generator Tutorial

This is a tutorial I've been meaning to do for literal years! It took forever to get to it, but today we're going to pick apart the train wreck that is Generator in hopes that more people can actually use it to create custom content. Exciting stuff!

This tutorial is going to cover any and everything I've ever learned while fighting working with Generator, so it's going to be extremely long. It's worth it, though; I promise! If you've ever wanted to make your own Generator layout, but the task seemed too daunting, you are right where you need to be. And, with that, away we go!

Don't forget to post the creations you make using this new workable base at [info]rpresources and the new community, [info]s1generator, which I've created for all Generator-specific needs!
