My name is Lyra, and I'm here to help you with all your roleplay needs. I love Broadway musicals, writing and fangirling over cute boys.

I kind of burned my fingers today, and they really sting… So, I will have to put off making graphics for a day or two until the burning stops.

Anonymous said:  Sorry! One more question. What do I put in the page URL under custom links?

It’s no trouble at all, love! Do you mean the URL of the external page itself, or the URL of the bios? If it’s for the external page itself, you can put the page URL in the area where it says Page URL, whether it is custom or standard.

If it’s for the links of the bios, you can replace the roleplay section with a bio section. That means you would replace this (<a href=”/”>roleplay</a>) with this (<a href=”/”>bio</a>), and place the bio link in the quotation marks.

Ah, I understand now! You put the theme code in an external page. You do this by clicking pages and then clicking ‘add a page’. Then, you must change the settings of the external page to ‘Custom Layout’. This means that there are no settings in the tool bar (bold, italic, strike-out, etc.). This allows you to put the theme in and for it to appear properly on your page. 

Usually, external page themes are pretty easy to edit, particularly masterlist ones. There are usually sections within the code telling you where to put the pictures, links and description. It takes a little getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy. For example, in my character page, the part where you edit the character boxes looks like this -

<div id=”boxes”>

<div id=”images”><img src=”” width=”250”></div>

<div id=”names”>your character’s name</div>

<div id=”desc”>

</div>

<div class=”nav”>

<a href=”/”>roleplay</a>

<a href=”/”>account</a>

</div>

</div>

You put the URL to the picture of the character (it must be uploaded on Tumblr or on another hosting site) after img src=, your character’s name in between <div id=”names”> and </div>, write the description after <div id=”desc”> and place the roleplay and account URLs in the quotes in the lines that say <a href=”/”>roleplay</a> and <a href=”/”>account</a>. It’s pretty simple, once you get the hang of it! 

It depends on the theme, though. 

I hope that this helped!

Sure! It is rather simple. You could either have a blogroll (you can find different blogroll themes and install it on an external page) or an external page with links. Which one are you looking for, love?

I should really start being more productive and posting more on this page… But I’m making graphics and helping roleplays out and my two wonderful characters are just calling my name. Does anybody have any questions or need any help with regards to roleplaying? I’m kind of in a manip making mood at the moment.

Leerah&#8217;s Tips #3

A person&#8217;s personality is shaped by their environment and life. This is why character&#8217;s back stories are so important. For example, if a character is addicted to drugs, perhaps it&#8217;s because the stress in their life is too much for them, which is why they turned to drugs.If a character is shy and quiet, perhaps it&#8217;s because they prefer books to people. If a character always wants to be in the center of attention, maybe it&#8217;s because their parents have always handed them what they wanted. Personalities are fun to work with, but you have to justify them.

As nayahelper said, you might just want to look at different textures/brushes on different resource blogs, such as this, and this post.

I would most definitely consider becoming a roleplay’s graphic admin! I believe that I am more competent on the writing side of things, but I’d be more than happy to help with a roleplay’s graphics.

Leerah&#8217;s Tips #2

Don&#8217;t just start working and posting on your roleplay in one day. Give yourself time to make your roleplay really solid. Think about the idea for awhile, make your page look pretty, get some feedback on your page/plot, see if the idea is really the right fit for you&#8230; Don&#8217;t just rush in and make your roleplay. You may find yourself becoming uninterested or bored if you take things too quickly. It&#8217;s kind of like with relationships. I guarantee you that if you take things slow with your roleplay, you will have a higher chance at achieving success.
