tropo red for insanejournal

Yeah. I know. We've come full circle.

So, if you've stumbled across my journal before totally unrelated to the RP sphere, then it's probably because you wanted to use my now totally defunct livejournal colour scheme for Dreamwidth. Long story short, Dreamwidth ended up doing so many code pushes that would bork the script that I got irritated trying to keep up with them and finally stopped.

In a hilarious but not unexpected turn of events, now that I've gotten used to it, I actually quite like Dreamwidth's default Tropospherical Red layout these days. I would go so far as to say I prefer it over whatever new eye searing design option Livejournal has got going on this month.


Despite IJ being several levels more offensive-looking than anything either DW or LJ could ever dream up, I don't spend much time on it anymore these days, so I could never be bothered making a script for it. But I finally got off my butt and did it this month. Would that I had done this in 2011 during the Sabra years, god. Anyway, this isn't an exact clone of Dreamwidth, but it's as close as I could get it.

Fortunately, I've been on IJ for years, and I don't think they've done a single site-chanigng code push in the entire time I've been there. So. Hopefully, this one won't get borked. Without further ado, here you go:

A script to make InsaneJournal's site scheme look like it belongs in the 21st century.

I also use the simple icons skin in the preview screenshot above, which should be installed also if you want to reach optimal pretty. Feel free to edit whatever you want in the code itself, I'm not going to care. Hey, if you do something that looks cool, take a screenshot and show me. I'd love to see!
