Free CSS requests - Closed, NOTICE - PLEASE READ

Updates & Notices


Tinypic is shutting down. Many of these requests utilized Tinypic to host images. If you are still using the layout and did not back up the images, I have copies of them saved and can send them to you so that you can find your own host to upload to.
What I need from you:
- The URL to every image in your layout (so that I can find the images - they are not saved according to other information)
- Somewhere to send them to

You may Email requests to or ping @Aivilo in the TEF Discord, and I will PM you.


Will accept these one at a time. May or may not take a wait list as I'm able. Expect a completion time of anywhere from a few days to more than a month, depending on how work and health are going.


I need something to do with myself, but don't have a lot of time or stamina lately. So, I'm only open for 2 slots right now. These two slots also come with the warning that they may not be done quickly, and a request for your patience if you choose to take a slot.


Happy New Year!
Updated my Email address in the disclaimer code. No worries if you have the old code; the old Email will still work!


Will start accepting requests again on November 20th.


I've got a couple of personal projects which are requiring my attention at the moment. Current requests will still be worked on, but I won't be accepting new requests until mid October or early November. You're welcome to leave a note here for me to look at later, but you likely won't get a response until I open this again. Sorry!


New rule-
If you reserve a slot but do not provide a mockup or at least a direction for me to go in, I'll only hold the slot for a period of 2 weeks before you are moved to the "Waiting List." If you do not provide anything within 4 weeks of being moved to the Waiting List, you will be removed and will need to request again.

Just so I don't have to keep harassing folks for information : P 6 weeks is plenty long enough to come up with an idea or to express continued interest, I think.


I have noticed an unfortunate trend with many of the blogs I've coded. A large number are never used, or are put into test-blog limbo. If at any point while I'm working on these you decide you aren't happy with the layout or that you don't want the coding done any more, please let me know so I don't pump my hours into something that will just be thrown away.
Yes, I do these for fun and for free, but it kinda makes me sad when I put effort into something and it gets thrown out the window without ever being used.
I'm not saying you can never change your layout again! By all means, if you get tired of it after a few months, switch things up. But if I'm going to put my time and energy into these, I would really, really appreciate it if they got some level of use before they were retired.
Thank you.


Corrected a div display issue in Firefox/updated stylesheet


Got Photoshop working again.


Something is wrong with my copy of Photoshop Elements, and it's seriously impeding progress in certain areas, as that's what I use to work with mock-ups and color-grab, among other things. Tried re-installing without much success. Not sure what else to do about it.

Disclaimer update:
-"Email" now links to this page in addition to displaying my Email
-Link prefixes adjusted so they should work 100% of the time
-Gave the code its own section on this page

Previous Notices


Gave the lists their own box and made some of the script more legible. Also beginning to modify the way the completed works display.


Finally got some code together for this blog. Next on the list is making the examples page look pretty, and maybe give the active/waiting list its own box.

I'm only doing one at a time at the moment, so I'm going to list anyone who requests in the "waiting list" section so that I can look up their post later without having to do a bunch of digging.
Please feel free to continue to put in requests, but be aware that I'm no longer doing 3+ per week and will be slower in completing these.

If I foresee some extra spare time coming up, I may open additional slots or bump up people on the waiting list.

Note to a select few who have had CSS done

On a few of these I've modified the "new comment" button. You will need to edit the URL of this link before new comments can be added to your blog! If you do not edit it, it will redirect to my test blog. It apparently slipped my mind to mention this a few times, so I'm making a general note here.
This includes: Shideezhi (still not corrected)
Sorry for the inconvenience!
Disclaimer Code
My generic disclaimer, in case you've accidentally removed it or in case I need to copy/paste:
WARNING: The position settings will not work for all blogs! You may need to adjust the values.

How it Works ~ Rules & Policies ~ Examples & Completed

How to Make a Request, and How This Works in General

  • If the title says "working", I'm currently working on some of these and am not starting new requests for the moment (feel free to ask to be put on the waiting list, though). If the title says "open" I will actively be picking the next batch if any of the current slots are open (or about to open). If the title says "closed", life has gotten busy and I won't be working on or accepting requests for a while.
  • NOT first come first serve, so make a suggestion no matter how many posts there are in front of you. Please feel free to submit your requests regardless of whether the title is "working," "open," or "closed"! I'll take them all into consideration at some point.
  • You can request for anyone, including yourself/your characters. If you request for someone else, please make sure they can contact me so they can give me feedback and get the code later. Also make sure they're looking for a layout; if they don't want CSS, I'm not going to force it on them.
  • It doesn't have to be a biography! I can build OOC blogs, or whatever else you have in mind, too.
  • I'll open slots again once a batch is finished.
  • Probably won't do every one that gets suggested before life gets busy again, but we'll see what happens~ Life got busy again! Still taking requests, but moving more slowly.

Hmm. I might ask for

Hmm. I might ask for something for Kerwin or Ranore since they're both...relatively bioless right now. Not even going to bother linking to their bios since they have no info on them right now. I actually was thinking of something close to the example mock up you made...but I'd make the images and such that'd link to tabs... Either of them would have a darker color scheme(which is why I can't decide, I'd probably use the template for both of them, just tweak the colors and the pictures.) That's only if you want to. Thank you for considering and I can describe in depth if my rambling doesn't make sense.

Going to just put Ird up here.... have no clue currently about the layout. I'll try to think up something, just wanted to get this posted so I don't forget. As for colors, anything that can be found in a forest, browns, greens, blues ext. I hope it's alright to post this, I'll try to get back to you about layouts asap.

Mkeene - Where is Keela's pictogram? Also, did you have a particular layout in mind? Or even just a number of boxes/tabs you want information in? Would something like this work?

Ebony - all 6 of the flowers

Ebony - all 6 of the flowers would be tabs/have words on hover... if I can pull it off, lol. May just have links without the hover if it doesn't work out, or leave the flowers as flowers and have normal text tabs.
Also, I don't think that picto is Ird's, but I can't find Ird's picto linked anywhere.
Ebony3's picture

Oh My Goodness that's

Oh My Goodness that's amazing! It'll be perfect either way! And yah that's not his picto, I tend to be really forgetful when it comes to linking them. Here's his. Thank-you so much for doing this!

Hokay. I think Ird, Nugget,

Hokay. I think Ird, Nugget, and Keela are pretty much done, aside from the last poppy I need to shade for Ird. You three let me know what you think/if I need to change anything. I've snagged info from where I could find it, don't know if that's going to be where you want it in the end but I figured it'd fill the space with something more than "BLOCK OF TEXT" for now if nothing else xD

Might take a few more this upcoming weekend (or sooner if I have time), so don't be afraid to suggest someone.

^Of course! There just isn't

^Of course! There just isn't enough text in any of them except "Origin" to make it scroll xD
The one under Ird doesn't because it's meant to just hold brief, basic information, and the image covers a chunk of the box, but I can change that if you'd like.
And thank you ♥
Ebony3's picture

That's fine! I noticed on the

That's fine! I noticed on the test page that the origin isn't scrolling and when you click on the box itself it goes straight to the link box no matter what tab it's on before.

Your welcome <3

Aivilo's picture

Huh. It scrolls, but

Huh. It scrolls, but apparently the "link" tab image covers part of the div itself, so if you're in the top section it behaves oddly. It'll scroll if you move the cursor closer to the bottom of the box. I'll try to get that patched up.

Edit: All fixed :3

To the 3 who just got their CSS - I noticed a little hiccup with the disclaimer bar. It should be pretty easy to fix on your end, but if it gives you trouble let me know and I'll work it out.
Basically, it displays differently for other people than it does for you because of the view/edit bar that displays at the top.

i have two questions! how do i fix/remove the disclaimer area?
and is there any way i can change the color of the dark brown bar on the bottom of the layout where the add new comment and number of reads are, and the color of the reply button on each individual comment?

O WAIT. lol. i think i

O WAIT. lol.
i think i understand what you said now about the disclaimer area. its back to normal after viewing on this account.


still questioning if i can change those colors.
and i have one more small question, if you could supply me with the code to remove comment icon and signatures? ;;

thank you so much ahuhuhw

Gloomy - I have a mockup for you, let me know if I'm going in the right direction.
(Note: Not all of the divs function correctly; again, this is a mock-up and is just to give you a feel for general appearance)
Gloomycluster's picture

You're definitely going in

You're definitely going in the right direction, I love that ;o;
I love the colors and the glowing green... the layout is beautiful.
One thing, instead of green borders, could you just switch them to thick black ones? ','
The small hints of glowing green make it look great, so that really all you need (: other than that... it's perfect.

Thanks so much it looks awesome so far....

Aivilo's picture

Switched out the borders and

Switched out the borders and put in some fun font for titles and the tab links.
Anything else you want me to do with it? One of the tabs has a spacing issue I'm trying to hash out, but it can be worked around without impairing the bio (as you can see on the page), but that aside I think it's pretty much done unless you want an image put somewhere or something.

These are so pretty! Perhaps

These are so pretty!

Perhaps you'd be willing to make on for my Kettu? Ive been trying to do one myself but i dont even know if what im trying to do is possible Click
If not i can always do something else..

Thanks x3 Oooh, I like it. I

Thanks x3

Oooh, I like it. I think I can make that work! I just need all the images you want to use. I'll give you a dimension for the background image when I get home - at a rough guess I think it's around 1000 wide x 1-2000 tall (pixels). Again, I'll take a look when I'm at home and have access to something other than my phone.

Have you got Skype? It's in your signature. Duh, Ivi.
I'll add you later xD
