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 have two questions!

First question: Does anyone know any free programs or sites where I can make gif icons for my character journals?

Second question: I am using this layout on a different journal and I was wondering if anyone knew how to make the navigation window stay open?

ezgif.com is a website where you can upload already made gifs and edit them. i use this site to edit down gifs i find around the interwebs to match up in size with other gifs for character apps. it also has a video to gif but i've never tried to make my own before so idk how good it is. a quick google of 'gif making sites' brought giphy to my attention.

the below is an incredibly shoddy edit of tessisamess code. all of the code to still be able to click on the navigation header to get it to drop down is still there but the navigation window stays open. just highlight your journal code /*--- SIDEBAR ---*/ heading with the below and it should be just how you want it.

If you are a PC user than Photoscape is a pretty nifty free program to use for making gif icons. They are less likely to distort. All of the gifcons in this journal were made using it. Unfortunately, it does not work for Mac Users which is super lame.

Gimp is another option, but it takes some real patience to get on top of the layers aspect.

If you are looking to make them from scratch, there are a number of programs that allow you to take clips from youtube and instagram and turn them into gifs. Just be careful of file sizing, because they tend to be quite large and therefore a lot more work to break down. Photoscape will take a minute to load anything over 3MB.

Photoscape looks like a good program to use. Thanks for the suggestion!
