I only did this for my pleasure and took a little over two years to complete the full set so now that's it is done, I thought to only share with my fellow Ray Vecchio lovers. :) I will probably create a plain jane version (sans borders) sometime next year but for now, this is what it is.

This mood theme is for outside or public use, just instructions. Use liberally.

Before Reading: Click to See + Download: Ray Vecchio Mood Theme Full Preview






Excerpt from: Acidqueen's Kirk/McCoy Theme


If you are using this mood theme with InsaneJournal, follow the directions below here: ⇓

⇒ 1. Did you go to the mood theme preview you want and pick up the zip file. Yes, continue to number #2.

⇒ 2. Unzip the file, then upload all pics to your site or a image service like Photobucket. For both, create a folder in your directory or a sub album in photobucket titled example: "rayvmoodtheme". (Check below for mini instructions on photobucket.)

⇒ 3. Open this:

Ray Vecchio: command-console.txt file

and paste it into notepad. Do a find/replace of the URLs, from this part
"http://www.yoursite.com/moods/"
to example:
"http://www.yoursite.com/rayvmoodtheme/".

It should look like this : "http://www.yoursite.com/rayvmoodtheme/se-raymood25.jpg

So it should look like this if for example (photobucket) :
"http://www.yoursite.com/moods/"
to
http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/r341/yourname/rayvmoodtheme/se-raymoods25.jpg

⇒ 4. Go to the InsaneJournal Command Console. In the box, type or copy this:
moodtheme_create "Scotchsour's Ray Vecchio Mood Theme" "The Man behind the Armani."

then click "execute". You should get a box saying that your mood theme has been created.
Success. Your new moodthemeid = ###

Write down the ID# they give you (i.e. "134"), because you'll need it later.

⇒ 5. Go back to the command-console.txt file in your notepad. Do a find/replace "166595" with the ### that InsaneJournal has assigned to your mood set.

⇒ 6. CTRL-A to select all the text in your file, then copy and paste it Under: enter commands: into the console box. (No need to press again the console box link if you kept the original window open.) Press "execute". It should give you a long list of commands to show that you've been successful.

⇒ 7. To check if your mood theme has been set up correctly, go to http://www.insanejournal.com/moodlist.bml?moodtheme=166595 -- but replace "166595" with your theme's ID#. If it shows up, you know it worked!

⇒ 8. Go back to the Modify Journal page. Scroll down to "select mood icon set". Look for one named "Scotchsour's Ray Vecchio Mood Theme", and select it. Save Changes. Then refresh your InsaneJournal to see if the moods show up.

⇒ 9. Enjoy the set as much as I had spent creating it.

Photobucket "Quick and Dirty" mini instructions: (Assuming you already opened an account with Photobucket)

⇒ 1. Go to your account and under your name in gray, go to the create album textbox. Write in the name: rayvmoodtheme. Press save.
⇒ 2. You should be in the rayvmoodtheme folder, seeing "upload to rayvmoodtheme". Make sure that "images from PC" is highlighted in dark blue. Press the green plus on the bottom and upload all the moods into the folder.
⇒ 3. Continue with instructions above.



NOTE: At this time Insanejournal only uses 131 moods instead of 132 that of Livejournal, there is no "nervous". If using mood for community you'll have to install through the IJ mood theme editor or LJ mood theme editor manually one by one.
