Icon Table Generator
I built this small script because I'm lazy and I didn't want to have to copy-paste chunks of table code
again and again and again, just to display my livejournal icons in
my icon journal; so I decided to whip up a quick script
to handle all that for me.
Since other people might also find it useful, I'm putting it online for anyone's use. :)
Skip to the generator!
- If something goes horribly wrong (read: it's a bug, not "I don't know what I'm doing"),
feel free to drop me a line.
However, chances are, you're probably just doing something wrong.
Please read through the instructions carefully!
- Credit is not required for using this tool -- I don't require you to link back,
and even though the tool automatically appends a credit link when it generates your HTML code,
you can toggle this off in the form below or delete the line altogether.
However-- I would really appreciate it if you do credit me in some way --
userinfo, resources post, whatever. :3
I like knowing if people find some use in the small scripts that I create,
it's very encouraging for me. <3
- If you need to contact me about the script, the best place would probably be
here where I announced it on my
lj/icon/themes journal. :)
In the form below, either select or create your icon template -- I already made a few preset ones,
but in case you'd like to use a personalized one for yourself,
feel free to use the create template form to specify how your template looks like
(this cannot be saved, however).
If you select a preset template, pick one from the dropdown that will show up.
You can preview how the template you selected looks like by clicking on
the link next to the dropdown.
If you wish to use your own template, enter the template header, body, and footer in the text areas
that will show up. For more information on creating a template,
In the succeeding text box, enter the image URL of your icon or image (it must already be uploaded
on the Internet!). The button right below the text box will allow you to add more text boxes
-- as many text boxes as you need for your icons/images. If you wish to remove a text box,
click on the "x" beside it.
New! If you want to create headings for sections of your images, just enter plain text
or HTML. Be sure the first few characters aren't
http://, although you can put links if
you need to (i.e.,
Once you're ready, click on "Generate code", and an HTML code which you can put on your Livejournal
will be generated for you, based on the template you're using and the image URLs you've provided.
You may copy and paste this directly into your entry. By default, a link pimping the parser will be
appended to the end of your generated code, but if you wish to remove this line, just select the
appropriate radio selection below the "Generate code" button.
