Hello! First time poster!

I'm playing a steampunky game, and I wanted to know if there was a fun, easy way to set up code so my players could post telegrams to one another in game. Like, embed images of telegrams with text overlayed into a post.

For example: this as a background image, with a textbox over it that could be typed into with an old-timey all caps font.

Any help would be appreciated!

Google Fonts in Entries


[info]morethancostume
[info]rp_tutorials
I am 97% sure this is impossible, but I needed to check: is there any way to call up Google fonts for an individual entry? I know you can't access the style or head elements for individual entries, which means you can't use @font-face. I've experimented with using the <style> tags in the body (while not technically correct, this is a possible way to code elsewhere), but IJ seems to ignore it.

So, are my only options sticking to web-safe fonts and using images of fancier text, or is there a way to call upon the vast font interwebs within journal entries? :D

I've been looking for either a layout or table that looks like an old notebook? The closest thing I've been able to find is the default "Notebook" one Insanejournal supplies but I'm not a fan of it.
Something like this,or this would be phenomenal.

First time poster, long time follower. I am kind of sure there is a code for S1 journal codes to make entries change from ascending to descending order. Problem? I can't find it. I have absolutely no clue what it is. If anyone knows please please PLEASE tell me. Thank you so much.

I recently joined my first forum/proboards RPG, after only playing on journal sites for many, many years, and I was wondering if anyone had links to character profiles or other shiny templates that use BBCode? I'm completely lost on this kind of code.

Thank you in advance!

Does anyone know the code that makes a lot of the stuff on the profile go away? Like this.

You know this FABULOUS instagram layout Tess made? I'm curious if anyone knows how I can put more than one month in a row?

For example...say a character only posts 2 photos during a month. Then the next month they post like 3. Is there a way to make it so it's in one row, verses doing an entirely different row for each month?

...hope that makes sense.

Firefox problem


[info]morethancostume
[info]rp_tutorials
I have discovered an unexpected problem with one of my layouts in Firefox. I'm using a border-radius to shape an element and applying a box-shadow to it to give it some depth. When I pull up the layout in Firefox, most of these elements render properly - they're all coded the same way. But occasionally, one of the elements is shaped properly - but its box-shadow forms a normal rectangle, like it's not being clipped properly by the border-radius property.

I've done some searching to see if I can find a common solution, but nothing's turned up. Here's a tiny screencap, followed by the code producing this effect:





I would really appreciate some help on figuring this one out. The simple solution is obviously to ditch the box shadows, but it makes the elements look too flat.

I want to use one of Lobelia's really lovely layouts, Katinka, but I'm pretty html black-thumbed. I'd ask on her IJ but the last comments are all from last year. :(

Is there a way to change out the module code for the calendar to list the tags instead?

Good morning,

So I'm coding a new bio code cause it has been forever since I've coded something and I thought I should get back into the practice of doing so.

I had the layout perfect then discovered a spelling error (oops), went in and fixed the spelling error and now the Character Name TD is no longer rounded in the corners like the other ones.

The spelling error was nowhere near that code.

I AM BAFFLED



Is the code for the layout. I've tested it in Chrome, Safari and IE. It worked in Chrome and Safari but then after fixing the error it stopped working in those and didn't work in IE.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I found this code on a journal that I absolutely adored and wanted to use, but I can't seem to make it show up in my journal. You can see it if you go to the page itself which isn't what I was going for.

Since I snagged the code from page source, I'm sure I got something wrong and don't have the journal's original code source to see where they got it and find a solution.

Any help would be appreciated, even if it's a point in the right direction.



Edit: Picture!

Layout Code:

Okay...long time lurker, first time poster here. To practice my CSS skills now that I'm actually in school and I need to be able to successfully implement them for grades instead of just pretteh IJs, I decided to give a character profile a try. It looks good, except there are some hiccups. First, I...don't even know what's going on with the line that IJ has going, but instead of being under my character bio, it's to the right which makes the horizontal scroll pop up and is basically ruining my life, HOW DO fix it? lol

Second, I know there has GOT to be a better way to get that middle section to stay where it is without shifting the right floating div down, but I've tried everything and I can't get it to work, so basically, if you have an image that's any other size at all...the whole thing is jacked up. Anybody willing to take a look and help a beginner get better? I implemented the code here on a journal I'm not using at the moment.

Here's the coding:



ETA! An anonny mouse helped me fix it! ♥

I'm currently using and tweaking this layout from [info]coding. At the moment it looks like this after I tried fiddling with the code, but I would like it to look like this.
A. Is it possible?
B. If it is possible, what part of the code should I actually be working on?
Thank you to anyone that can help me out! :3 And here is my tweaked code:

Need Help with Coding Tweaks

Currently, I'm working on revamping the look of this journal (as well as the character information), but I've come across a some issues with the layout I'm using.

1. How do I hide my name?
2. How do I make my icon round, give it a border, etc.?
3. How do I get a dashed border around Navigation?
4. How do I link Customs, Threads, and Phone?

And this last one isn't coding related, but where does everyone go to find those nifty previews of iPhone covers like this?

Here's the coding I'm working with:

Does anyone know of a way to re-set a journal? For example, remove friends, remove icons, delete journal entries, delete notifications?

I've seen this quite a bit lately. People are wiping their userinfo of everything or with limited information shown. Is there a code for this floating around somewhere or can I be pointed in the right direction? Thanks!

I know there's a way to set the precedence in the admin console to f-lock every post in a community after executing the command. I just don't remember what it is. Does anyone know?

EDIT So for a community, it's

set for <*community*> newpost_minsecurity friends

just replacing with the community's name (no <* or *>)
