Community Rules

This comm is open to anyone to post codes, layouts, resources, tutorials, and requests for help and content. Of course, we do have some rules, so please read through them before jumping in; thank you!

Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. This is not a drama comm, and we expect you guys to be awesome and stay civil. If a situation gets out of hand, please contact a mod, and leave comments intact so we can accurately handle the situation.

Please tag your posts and check out the tagging guide if you have any questions!

■ Very long posts or posts formatted with your own div styling for organization should be behind a cut to save people's f-lists.

Work safe above the cut, please!

■ If posting codes, guides, etc. absolutely do not post content that you did not make. That's stealing, and it's super uncool, bro! If you are posting expanded/edited codes made by yourself using another user's coding as well, please be sure you have their permission (You do not need direct permission if they allow edits to be re-posted in their blanket rules.)
■ Do not post tutorials/links to tutorials that show people how to steal codes from other users. Again: Stealing. Not cool.
When asking for help with something, please check the help tags (help: coding, help: graphics, help: icons, help: layouts, help: other) first to see if your question has already been posted and answered to avoid duplicates.

We do not allow game ads to be posted on this comm since there are so many communities specifically for that already; if you're pimping a game as an addition to a regular post, that's fine. (OK: You post an RP code and mention in the post, oh hey, also I'm running this game! NOT OK: Posts dedicated to game promo.)

We do allow other types of community promos if they are related to RP (icon comms, other types of resource comms, etc.) Just shoot us a comment in our dropbox beforehand and we'll let you know if it's cool to post!

And now for something completely different, a super duper minimalist muselist/cr chart. You can replace the stars with hearts or emoji or whatever you like, you can have multiple headings, it's very flexible.

I had to recode this sucker from scratch before it would play nicely with dreamwidth, so I hope to heck it's useful. As always, check "disable auto-formatting", because lj-raw and I are not friends.

does anyone know of any list-like codes, either for checklists or for scene lists?

Ages ago there was something that you could bulk friends lock entries with. LJ Sec or something.

Does that still exist and does it still work? If not does anyone have other suggestions? I need to completely lock down multiple journals.

📢 Imgur TOS Changes


[info]tessisamess
[info]rpresources
As per Imgur's newest TOS update:
We will be focused on removing old, unused, and inactive content that is not tied to a user account from our platform as well as nudity, pornography, & sexually explicit content. You will need to download/save any images that you wish to save if they no longer adhere to these Terms. Most notably, this would include explicit/pornographic content.
I strongly urge you to save any images used in any layouts/codes that you're currently using, even if they were uploaded by me, because I cannot guarantee with absolute certainty that they're tied to my account, or that I still have the images if you need to reupload them.

Please please please remember to do this by May 15, 2023 so you aren't risking losing anything. I'll be saving as much as I can here in case I need to reupload anything. (Remember, this only applies to Imgur URLs, so if one of my layout uses a Discord, Guilded, or Unsplash URL you're fine to leave them as-is. Which is unfortunate, because those URLs are the ones I can almost completely guarantee I still have. 🙃

Overall, I think it's still safe to use Imgur for your uploads for layouts, but now we just need to be absolutely sure we're logged in when we do our uploads going forward. Finally: I'd appreciate if you could link this post in any IJ-specific servers you're in on Discord/Guilded/etc. and/or on your main journal if you could so that we can try to make sure people don't lose their images.

On a related note: Let me know over on this post if you'd like it if I wandered around online and researched free and paid image hosting options to post a comparison of here so you don't have to?

I did a bit of searching and, while I maybe wasn't using the proper criteria, I've only seen info or pages for styling the CSS for active anchor links. Currently, I'm using the code from [info]tessisamess' hidden click tutorial, but would like to change the background of the current section a person is actively on for easier accessibility. Is this even possible for in-entry codes?

So after reading [info]tessismess' Flexbox tutorial for the billioneth time and finally getting it, I got some inspiration to create a character bio to post. Part of my process is to create an HTML file and work on it from there. Currently the file is hosted on Neocities and it looks and works as intended there. However, when I went to post and make sure that the code did the same on IJ, I got this mess here and I've not been able to figure out where stuff got borked. Below is the code if anyone wants to take a look at it.

( code: A_SOUND_CLIP, a sound message mockup with hidden text "audio transcription" area )
( code: PENDANT, a splash page nav )
( code: PORTRAIT HALL, a simple alternating infobox/portrait code )


In other news:
(1) The nav code PYRAMID SCHEME now has two variants: a triangle pointing down and a diamond shape!
(2) I rewrote the bio code KITTIWAKE from the ground up so that it is more user friendly and has a few new features!

Hey so I'm trying to code a new layout over at [info]agathachristie. Honestly it's a bit of a disaster at the moment!

I've decided for ease to use s1 generator (lol this might be a mistake). Anyway what I'm currently struggling to do is.

1 - get the topbar you know flush against the top of the page. I think its to do with z-index but I haven't had a chance to look into that yet so halp?

2 - get the entries to appear in a grid layout of 4x4

The relevant bits of code are here

What I'm trying to code is basically this

character icon
character name
lj cut/link to the full bio/entry

Obviously that will be in entry code and I haven't coded the rest of the layout yet, I want to get the grid and topbar working but that's just a reference

So I made the layout in this journal ages ago but never really used it until now.

I've noticed that the journal names on the friends list aren't coming up. I've tried to edit .pic-poster & .ljuser but nothing seems to be fixing it.

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.... The code is here

MERRY DRAFTSMAS!
In case you missed it, for the month of December, I assembled and released a bunch of content that I hadn't publicly released before. Included in the batch were thirteen unique code designs total, including one full biosheet, 4 cast/muse lists, and a bunch of miscellaneous codes from thread toppers to playlist codes.

For live previews of how all the new codes look on insanejournal, please check out my IJ draftsmas tag.

For the codes themselves, visit the DRAFTSMAS SET tag on my dreamwidth. In-between, I also released some Eartha Kitt screencaps and a gdoc template, which you can also pick up on my DW journal. A little niche lmao sorry.

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy 2023! ♥
