How do I create my own mood theme?
There are two ways to create your own mood theme: through the handy dandy Mood Theme Editor or through the Admin Console. Either way, your pictures must be available on a separate server and you must know the dimensions (width and height, in pixels) of each image.
To create a mood theme using the Mood Theme Editor:
Go to http://www.journalfen.net/manage/moodth
Just enter the name you want to give to your theme and click "create". A new page will open where you can enter the location and size of each of your mood icons. Yes, it will take a long time. :)
To create your mood theme with the Admin Console:
Go to the admin console at http://www.journalfen.net/admin/con
The first thing you're going to do is create the theme. Execute the command:
moodtheme_create name des
name = the name of your new theme, which will be displayed in the lists from which users select.
des = a short description for your theme, which will be accessible through the console's moodtheme_list command.
moodtheme_create "Sparkly Themey Thing" "Yes, I couldn't think of a better name."
If you're successful, you'll see a page which tells you so and gives you a number (the theme ID) identifying your new mood theme. Remember this number, as it will be used every time you enter information for a mood. (If you forget it, you can execute the moodtheme_list command to find out the IDs of all the themes available to you.)
Next, you need to assign each of your image files to a mood, by executing a command of the form:
moodtheme_setpic themeID moodID picURL width height
themeID = the number given to you after you created the mood theme.
moodID = the number of a mood for which you created an icon. (For a list of moodIDs, see http://www.journalfen.net/support/faqbr
picURL = the full URL (Web address) of your mood icon.
width = width of the image, in pixels.
height = height of the image, in pixels.
For the assignment to take effect, you must provide all of the information listed. For example:
moodtheme_setpic 180 15 http://www.yoursite.com/happy.gif 20 20
Since the moods are nested, it's possible to represent all of the moods by specifying only 15 images. But what fun is that?
After you finish your theme, you can choose to use it from http://www.journalfen.net/manage/moodth
