Mood-Theme

Wow. I guess this just proves how dorky I am, however I hope that some of you will think this is fun and will want to use this mood-theme.

Yes, that's right, I made a Clockwork Orange mood-theme, 128 different pictures available, highly dominated by Alex.


A full preview can be seen here.

Zip-file with all the moods.
[right click and download, please]



For paid-accounts
Have a free-account? Scroll downwards a bit!

1. Download the zip-file with all the moods. Unzip it and upload the pictures to your own web-space/image-hosting service. You'll have to use a service that allows hotlinking. I recommend Photobucket.

Do not change the filenames of the images. You'll only make things a lot harder for yourself if you go and change the names, unless you want to switch what image goes with what mood, but that's up to you.

2. Go to your mood theme editor, name your new mood theme and click create.

3. Write in the url for each picture.
Now.. to make this process easier, start off with the first one, for example http://www.domain.net/moodfolder/angry.png, have that link in your clipboard by copy pasting it from where your mood is uploaded. When going down the list of moods, all you have to do is replace the mood-name (in this case, angry) with the corresponding mood in the mood theme editor list. Remember to keep the .png at the end! Aren't you glad you didn't change the name on any of the images, hm?

4. Be sure you write in the dimensions of each picture, otherwise they may look weird. Width is 80 and height is 40.

That's it! Enjoy.

Instructions for free-accounts

It is possible to use a custom mood-theme even if you have a free-account, but it is a bit clunky and looks... slightly off depending on how your layout looks. I personally would rather spend $5 for a paid-account, upload the mood-theme and go back to having a free account after the paid time runs out (the mood-theme stays even when your paid time runs out). I don't know if you have access to the mood theme editor if you are using a sponsored account, sorry.

Here is how to do it though, if you don't want to waste the $5;

1. Download the zip-file. Unzip it and upload all the images to your own web-space/image-hosting service You'll have to use a service that allows hotlinking.

Do not change the filenames of the images. You'll only make things a lot harder for yourself if you go and change the names, unless you want to switch what image goes with what mood, but that's up to you.

2. Write up the url to where your mood is uploaded (for example http://www.domain.net/moodfolder/angry.png), remember it or write it down. Now, when you want to include a mood with your entry, start the entry with a line like this:

[<strong>Current mood:</strong> <img src="http://www.domain.net/moodfolder/angry.png"> angry]
[<strong>Current music:</strong> Life on Mars? - David Bowie]

It should look like this:

[Current mood: angry]
[Current music: Life on Mars? - David Bowie]

So all you have to do is to keep this little bit of code handy somewhere, paste it in at the top (or bottom) of your entry, and replace the word "angry" with the mood you want to use in your post (both in the url and behind it!), oh.. and of course write in the music you are listening to.

And... that's it. Enjoy!
