RP Resources

Codes + Layouts + Tutorials + More


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!

I stumbled on this accidentally and can I just say I LOVE YOU FOR DOING THIS.

I also really, really love the layout/organization so far.

YOU ARE AMAZING, SERIOUSLY. I'm forever in awe of everything you code up.
Mar. 20th, 2014 10:58 am (UTC)
Ahahaha, oh man; thank you! ♥ THE COMM'S BASICALLY GOOD TO GO SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP YOUR DIRTY LITTLE SECRET ANYMORE. Squid and I will probably be officially announcing it later today, but feel free to join now if you have an IJ account!

Question that is possibly stupid: I know you said no game ads but would a post gauging the interest for a game, before I made it be okay? If not, I can find somewhere else, just wondering!
Mar. 21st, 2014 07:50 pm (UTC)
Unless you're posting with a request for resources, help or the like, I'd say no. You may be better gauging interest from places like [info]find_players and [info]wanna_rp.
Mar. 21st, 2014 11:09 pm (UTC)
Totally understand! Thanks for the quick response. :)
Mar. 22nd, 2014 03:22 am (UTC)
This looks great so far!

I was just thinking about link dumps, and while there is a tag for it, would it maybe be useful to have a page like you do with the rules where links to resources and other dumps? For example (while I need to update it in places - planning on updating it this next week though). I have this post. However I'm more likely to continue updating it rather than remembering to update it in a two places. IT might be useful to have place to link to things like that... Random thought! Thought I'd share!
Mar. 22nd, 2014 03:30 am (UTC)
That is such a great post! Once my comod gets on tomorrow I'll talk to her about it. :3 We were actually already talking about making a giant resource post just last night.
Mar. 22nd, 2014 03:34 am (UTC)
Thanks! I just thought it might be helpful! :)
Mar. 23rd, 2014 02:59 am (UTC)
You've been holding out on me. I TOTALLY just bookmarked that piece of love.
Mar. 23rd, 2014 03:02 am (UTC)
It's useful at least! <3

iiii have a question: would it be alright to advertise my icon community here? it's specifically geared for pocs and i figure some people would like that but i'm not sure if it's cool for you guys.
Apr. 1st, 2014 01:11 am (UTC)
* icon journal, whoops
Apr. 2nd, 2014 09:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah; that's fine. Go for it! We need more POC specific stuffs!
Apr. 13th, 2014 12:29 am (UTC)
thank you! i posted.
Apr. 10th, 2014 06:44 am (UTC)
Ugh Tess & Squidded I fail! I was posting some layouts and I accidentally added code: other tag to the post and I can't remove it -I believe a maintainer to do it. The post is here if you do want to remove it. Oops!
Apr. 10th, 2014 07:02 am (UTC)
Fixed! Np, it happens.
Apr. 11th, 2014 12:17 am (UTC)
thank you :)

Apr. 23rd, 2014 09:14 am (UTC)
Thank you very much for letting us know; we caught it!
Jul. 19th, 2014 08:23 am (UTC)
I've deleted one of my ad asylums, illustratedpsls/ads, so you'll need to take it off affiliates. :E

Hi! I really need some layout help and have no idea where to turn to. :(

I've tried both here and over at ~rp_tutorials. Do you have some resource that I can read/learn from? I'm really stumped and could use a helping hand.

Aug. 5th, 2015 05:16 pm (UTC)
Hey there! I started a community for screencaps at [info]capping and was wondering if it'd be ok to post? It's open membership, I'm just looking to advertise a bit and get people making icons with the caps/making requests.

Aug. 5th, 2015 05:20 pm (UTC)
Oooooh, nice; yes go ahead! Do you want to affiliate as well? :)
Aug. 5th, 2015 05:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Feel free to make requests :D

Affiliates would be great! I'm working on an affiliate post of my own, so I'll add you to that!
Aug. 5th, 2015 05:24 pm (UTC)
Right on! Added you here!
Oct. 12th, 2016 05:21 pm (UTC)
so beautiful... but is there a tinder code?
Aug. 1st, 2018 03:41 pm (UTC)
Quick question: I've been doing community-type posts asking opinions on RP stuff for a while now, but I posted one today specifically asking/talking about resources — what resources people know of, what they'd like to see in general or more of. Is it cool to make a quick post here with a link so that the people here who want to provide input can? If not, that's totally cool, as well!! ♥
Aug. 1st, 2018 10:52 pm (UTC)
No, absolutely feel free! That fits right in. ♥
Aug. 2nd, 2018 01:44 am (UTC)
Perfect! Thank you! ♥
Dec. 11th, 2019 05:34 am (UTC)
Hi! Do you know of a code anywhere to make little blurbs look like Post-It Notes? Any help or direction would be so appreciated. Thank you.
Dec. 11th, 2019 05:40 am (UTC)
I don't, but I can definitely mock one up and put it in my mockups tag over on my journal!
Dec. 11th, 2019 05:56 am (UTC)
That would be so awesome of you, thank you so much in advance!
Dec. 11th, 2019 06:19 am (UTC)
Dec. 14th, 2019 07:41 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, these are perfect! One more question: is there a certain code for making two of these appear side-by-side horizontally one an entry?
Jan. 1st, 2020 12:05 am (UTC)
First you'll want to remove the lj-raw tags and then change margin:15px auto 0 auto; to margin:20px; (or your preference for spacing.) After that you'll copy/paste the new version into this container as many times as desired:

<lj-raw><div style="margin:0 auto;max-width:1000px;display:flex;flex-wrap:wrap;justify-content:center;">



You could also cut text-align:center;line-height:1.2;font-family:cursive;font-size:22px;color:rgba(0,0,0,0.7); from the sticky note and pate it into the new container above to streamline if desired! That way it isn't repeating in each sticky note since it wouldn't need to.

End result:

Hi, I was wondering if there are any codes available to make a list-type InsaneJournal entry (it’s Christmas themed, but any list template will do). I’ve searched through the tags, etc and can’t seem to find any. Thank you!

Hi there!

A friend is working on a catchall resource site for roleplayers (Tumblr, Forum, Journal, Discord etc) and I"m wondering if it's ok to advertise here? Majority of the people submitting content to it so far are forum based so I would love other people from journal based to help as well.

The website is The Roleplay Network is
As the website says it is a

The Roleplay Network is a visual, data-driven and user submitted collection of roleplay resources and groups. Our aim is to provide a place where roleplayers of all types can find the resources they need, link to resources they have created, and advertise their own roleplay groups and communities.
Aug. 25th, 2020 07:31 am (UTC)
Yeah, absolutely!
