How do I make my own mood theme?
I've made my own mood theme, but I don't want to write my own instructions. Can I use your instructions and adminconsolecodes.txt file?



Can I use this theme with a free account?
Yes - well, kind of. You need to switch to a Plus free account in order to install the mood theme, there are more detailed instructions here. If you choose to switch back to a basic account after you've installed the mood theme, your theme will still be on your LJ.

Can I use this theme with a Sponsored (Plus) account?
Yes. Install your mood theme just like you would with a paid account.

How do I put this theme on my journal with a paid account?
Follow this tutorial here.

How do I delete a mood theme?
Go to your Custom Mood Theme Editor and find the mood theme you want to delete in the list. Look to the right of it, and select the "delete" button. You'll be prompted to choose whether or not you really want to delete the theme.

How do I add a mood theme to a community?
For one thing, the community must be a paid or sponsored account in order to have a mood theme. Sadly though, no matter how many times I beg LJ for an admin console command for mood themes on communities, they still haven't made one. You have to use the Custom Mood Theme Editor instead. Make sure you select the community from the drop down and click "switch". Otherwise the mood theme will be on your own journal and not the community's.

A tip: Upload the images you're going to use to a place that will allow you to just delete the images and re-upload new images to the same URLs when you want to change your theme. Otherwise you'll have to go through and do the whole hellish thing again if you ever want to change the mood theme.

Can I use one of your themes on my GreatestJournal/DeadJournal/Blog/PHPcentral?
Yes, just make sure to credit to crackified at livejournal.com.

Do you take mood theme requests?
I'm no longer able to take requests due to time restraints. Mood theme requests on any post will be ignored.

Do you take mood theme commissions?
I wish I could! But I can't because the images are not mine, and since I'm just cropping and colouring them, that would be very not right and even more illegal.

I'm using one of your mood themes, how do I credit you?
All I ask is that you credit me in your userinfo. This just means putting "Mood theme by crackified" or something similar in your info. If the mood theme was made using images by a specific artist (like my Kurthalsey or Artdungeon.net art mood themes), then you must credit them as well.

I downloaded your theme, but I don't know how to "unzip" it!
You'll need to download and install Winzip. Go here and download the program there. You don't need to pay for it, as there is a free "evaluation" copy that will allow you to complete the tasks you'll need it for.

I've downloaded the mood theme zip and unzipped it, now how do I upload the images?
If you do not have your own domain or hosting, then go to Photobucket.com and create and verify your account. Once you've done that, go to your album page, and look under "Add Pictures". Click on "Browse..." next to Picture and find your unzipped folder that contains your mood theme images. Click on the first mood, then select "open". Make sure that the "Keep original picture names" box is checked. Then "Submit", and your first image will upload! If you want to upload more than one at a time, then go to the "Submit Multiple Pictures" drop-down and pick a larger number.

I can't figure out how to put the mood theme on my LJ. Can you do it for me, if I give you my password?

No. Not only is it against the LJ ToS for you to give me your LJ password, I don't have the time to put my mood themes on other people's journals. I try to make the instructions as simple to follow as possible, but if there's something you don't understand, feel free to ask me in a comment.

Where do you get your caps/images from?

I credit my caps and image sources in each mood theme post, but here are some caps sites that I use regularly:

Bunnysneezes.net - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone caps.
cap_it - For movies and specific TV show episodes.
Indicaps - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban caps.
Jems' caps - For various shows and movie caps.
Still-flying.net - Firefly caps.
Quintessence - Gilmore Girls caps.
BsgMedia.org - Battlestar Galactica caps and promo pictures.
BSG-Caps.com - BSG high-quality caps.
Spy-Caps.com - Alias caps.
StripedWall.com - Some movie caps, Grey's Anatomy, Arrested Development etc caps.
Time-and-Space.co.uk - Dr Who new series caps.
Screencap-Paradise.com - HQ screencaps of Buffy, Angel, etc.
Secret-Obsession.com - DVD quality movie caps.

Where is the image for [mood] from?
If you want to know where one or two moods are from, then feel free to comment on that post to ask. However, please don't comment with a long list of moods that you want to know the source of. It would be much easier for both of us if you just went to the linked image source and looked yourself. Plus, I may not always remember where some images are from. My memory sucks.

Can I take certain images of one of your mood themes and mix them together with someone's elses theme/another of your themes?
Yes, this is fine with me, as long as you credit me. If you're combining one of my themes with someone else's, make sure to get their permission as well, and credit them too.

LJ won't let me join the community!
You don't need to join the community, as I'll be the only one with posting access. However, I'd love it if you friended the community for updates.

How do I make my own mood theme?
Read LJ's FAQ and Guide on the subject first. They have a great tutorial on how to make the images and upload them yourself. Also, I have some tips and a cropping guide for mood themes here.

I've made my own mood theme, but I don't want to write my own instructions. Can I use your instructions and adminconsolecodes.txt file?
Sure! Either link to my instructions post, or copy-paste the instructions into your mood theme post. But if you do the latter, please credit me for the instructions and txt file!
