Help, please.

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.

TMZ layout?


[info]dramatispersona

Howdy folks!

Would anyone happen to know if a TMZ layout code already exists? Or any kind of popular gossip blog really. It would be a tremendous help to the faux celeb game I'm in.

Thanks!

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!

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!

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.

Hi everybody! I just have a (hopefully) quick and simple question. I'm trying to create a fake news article, and I want to make it look like it's on a newspaper. Anybody have any easy coding that would let me do that? I thought I saw it here somewhere once, but I can't seem to find it. Thank you so much in advance!

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!

[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! :)

i have a few of questions for anyone kind enough to answer an html illiterate baby like me!

1) http://jayg.webs.com/directory.htm i finally got this how i wanted it, but the titles of each box scroll with the information in the box and i don't like the way that looks. i don't know if that makes any sense, but i just want the titles of each box not to scroll with the stuff inside the boxes. i can try to explain it better if the sense that made is nonexistent.

2) this one may not be entirely rp related but it's photoshop related so i'll take a shot: i have an intuos tablet that i got for my birthday but it's sitting on my desk like a brick because it's too sensitive and i can't get the photoshop tools to stop sliding around the screen when i try to make icons or a psd with it. i'm sure i'm doing something wrong and it's not the brand new tablet that's busted or anything. help?

3) there was a rap sheet/mugshot type page that someone made here a while back that was perfect but i can't seem to find it now! can someone point me to it or to one like it?

Question/discussion: MCU


[info]kopi
[info]rp_tutorials
Lately many multi-fandom games have the term 'MCU' on their cast list and this is a great idea. For those that don't know, MCU stands for Marvel Cinematic Universe. So my question is which movies are considered MCU? All and every movie with Marvel characters? All movies under Marvel studios? Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D?

Right now, as far as I can tell from several cast pages that I've read, the term does not include the X-Men films, Daredevil (2003) and Elektra (2005), Spider-Man (2002) and the two sequels, Fantastic Four (2005) and the sequel. Should they? Are you a mod and do consider it MCU?

I'm assuming that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will be included in the term since it's Whedon but if someone could confirm this, that would be great. The animated Marvelverse is under Disney but I'm going to assume that no one would consider this MCU, since it's technically MAU (Marvel Animated Universe) if it should be a RP term at all.

If I left anything out, please don't hesitate to point that out.

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?

Alright ~rp_tutorials, I have a question. I can do this basic scroll over popup text box on an image:

Is there a way, however, to break the text lines? Whenever I try it shows up perfectly in the html preview, but once I'm done with the html the sentences get smashed together: <~ when I preview this post there are three individual sentences in the text box, but when I review the icon in the actual post it becomes all one lone sentence. Help?

Also! I looked through the tags, and I know this exists but I can't find it. There was a post that showed how to have an icon image change when you rolled your mouse over it. Does anyone know where it is? I looked in animations, codes, extras, guides: image editing, resources: tutorials and a few other tags. Maybe I looked it over by mistake?

Thanks a bunch guys.

I am mildy confused and annoyed. I have been having some issues saving/downloading pictures/icons that appear to be hosted from Photobucket. At first I thought it was something I might have done to change the way my files were saving on my Mac, but that isn't the case. (As far as I am aware) My second guess as to my problem was that the DOWNTHEMALL add-on I have been using was on the fritz. This also isn't true, since I can still DOWNTHEMALL from Hollow-art or any icon maker who isn't hosting on a Photobucket account. What is happening is that my files end up saving as HTML and there isn't an image. This has mildly frustrated me and I just asked a friend and she says it happened to her too, and she also assumed it was something she had done. I know that Photobucket just upgraded or something, so maybe its something with the new site? Thoughts, theorys, suggestions?

[Updated: 10/29/12] What Works, What Doesn't Work


[info]affictitious
[info]rp_tutorials
Update: Thank you to [info]jealousheart, [info]erin, & [info]nympholepsy for your input. It was all very helpful and what I'm walking away with is that visuals + descriptions is what a typical Player is looking for or expects/wants to see.

=====

Hello everyone!

I am currently working on a "map" for [info]havenwood and I'm curious what other players have found useful in games they have played in previously. Have you found a map-like visual helpful? Are they used often? Or, have you found that a locations/description page with images with a general representation of a place/building better, more useful, or more common?

Any suggestions would be appreciated and really, really helpful! :)

I apologize ahead of time if this has already been asked and I just did not find it. Searched Everything_LJ as well and not finding an answer there, either so thank you ahead of time.

I'm using an S1 layout, which I have not done in a loooooong time, so I don't remember all the little tricks and details, but isn't there a way to get tables to show up correctly in a post, despite the S1 overrides? I am trying to use a navigation table in a post that will get forward-dated so it stays on top of all the other posts but for the life of me I can't recall if it's even possible. After editing, from the actual post screen, the table looks fine. Viewing from the journal itself, the table has defaulted to the colors and text styles of the overrides.

Is there a trick... or is it not possible? What do people do instead?

Seeking a sliding cast directory


[info]skykissed
[info]rp_tutorials
I know there was once one posted but the entry has been deleted, so, help me [info]rp_tutorials people, you're my only hope!

I am looking for an easy to update/alphabetize character directory that uses usericon size pics. One that will automatically shuffle itself when you go and insert a character alphabetically, instead of having to shuffle the tables all manually - because I am fairly html illiterate and need the ease of just copying and pasting.

So if such a thing exists out there I would be delighted if someone could point me in the direction! Thanks!
