hey there! i'm not sure if anyone will be able to answer this question for me, especially since i don't have a screenshot of an example but i'm looking for an in-entry code for a group imessage conversation. i saw one a while back where it was simple text with the small circles with initials next to each individual text and the text bubble, if i remember correctly. it wasn't a layout or a photo of an iphone, just text that resembles the actual body of the conversation. would anyone know how to do something like that or could the suggest something similar? any help would be appreciated!

using tumblr pages like webs

[info]cheapfiction
[info]rp_tutorials
i've been cursing webs all evening, looking for a new place to host code, and i think i have a new option so i thought i'd share. if someone has a better solution please let me know, but i wasn't seeing similar requests for help solved.

basically, a tumblr account has "pages" you can code on, like with webs or scribbld. if you have a tumblr, you sometimes see them linked as people's "about me" pages, such as username.tumblr.com/about

you can do custom code on these pages (and make more than one) there are just more steps to getting there.

1) get a tumblr account. make a blank new blog with a boring username, people looking at your pages will see this username.

2) go to tumblr.com/settings

3) click the grey button that says EDIT THEME

4) you'll see a left panel of options, and on the right a large panel preview of your blog. on the left panel, scroll to the very bottom. click the option + ADD A PAGE

5) you'll see on the left it says username.tumblr.com/url - enter the url to use in the link to your page, such as "biography". (note: you have to do this step to do step 6)

6) change the dropdown from "standard layout" to "custom layout"

7) in the now clear black area on the left, post code as you would in webs.

8) green button "update preview" will show you a preview of your page on the right, and the save button... saves! don't forget to do that.

if this is a good option, i can make a post of clearer directions / a walk-through with pictures. but again, if there's something other than webs or scribbld to post html code for bios, etc, please let me know. thanks!

[RESOLVED] Style Assistence

Update: Thanks to [info]neverstill's help I got it worked out. thank you to everyone who contributed. :)

I'm working on a layout for a character that uses an S2 Bloggish style. Currently, the layout looks like this and I've gotten it to the point of having the navigation links centered. However, I'd like the nav links to look something like this instead and I've tried to get to that point but I just can't seem to reach it. Usually, I'm fairly good at figuring things out, but I have to say I'm rather stumped on this, lol. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! :)

heads up webs users

i've been finding that i can't add anything to new, "downgraded" webs pages even on an account i've had for 5 years. i emailed them about the error message i keep getting and this was their reply:

Thanks for your reply.
I have checked your account and found that you have a Free Webs site.
Sadly, we have made the decision to only allow Premium members the ability to use the 'Custom HTML' module.
If you have already added HTML codes to your site, those will remain. However, you will not have the ability to add new HTML coding to your site without upgrading to Premium Services.
I am truly sorry for the inconvenience and regret that you did not receive proper notification of this change.


webs users can keep using their old sites/accounts but you can't add any new usernames to them anymore unless you pay per month. i'll let you guys know if the woman responds back to my less than polite rant about how i feel about that.

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!

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:

ok so this might be a ridiculously stupid question but i cant seem to figure it out. I have the code to insert a background in my entries but for whatever reason the entry boxes are transparent and I cant figure out what part of the code is causing that.can someone help me figure out what I should be looking for in the code to change that? I have already removed the colors in the look and feel section but still nothing.

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:

Floating Cast Table + Variations

A fellow RP buddy, [info]themplusme, was in need of an easy-to-edit-later cast table. Seeing that the old floating table is either dead or disappeared, I went and made a new one for her to use and thought other RPers would find it useful. Included are variations in size and uses:
