Welcome to Behind the Layout, also known as BTL or simply Beetle! My name is Emma, and I've been running Beetle since August 2014. Here I hope to provide you with what you need to make your corners of Neopets look exactly how you want them, whether by using (or editing) one of my premade layouts or following a tutorial to create your own. Everything here is designed for your benefit; please feel free to take it, change it, frankenstein a completely new creation out of it - it's all there to be used!
Beetle is eternally in motion with new sections being added and new premades being premade. If there is something you would like me to cover or clarify in any section, or something new you'd like to see, please let me know!
- + Petpages: 7 Old Man River petpages
- + Completed Requests: One individual petpage and one individual userlookup completed
- + Resources: 31 new Wearable Background screenshots
Firstly, I want to give a massive apology for being absent the last week or so. Unfortunately I've been quite ill, and haven't been able to be online_ I'm doing better now though, so site content should start picking up again soon!
- + Petpages: 10 Just One Yesterday petpages
- + Request: Column based petpage
- + Request: Lavender Trellis userlookup

- Many thanks to esomera for pointing out a bug in the Frozen userlookups which prevented people adding bold text or linked images. This has now been fixed; you should now have no problem putting whatever you like in your About Me sections!
- By popular request, all layouts now come with a credit link in them. You are, of course, free to change or remove the credit, but it's there by default if you need it.
- Removed a couple of older userlookups that just weren't up to standard any more.
- Beetle is one of the featured sites at Lacuna's August Rewind!

That being said, please be respectful of any content used in the tutorials or premades from other sites; if they ask you to credit, then you must credit.
Please give me a few days to respond, but if you think I haven't seen your neomail then feel free to resend.
All requested tutorials and any layouts added to the premade sections of Beetle are free for anyone to use. Any one off requests put up here such as bug fixes or individual layouts are for sole use of the requester, and will be removed once they have been picked up. I do not keep the code for these, so please make sure you have it somewhere safe!
If you've made something using one of Beetle's tutorials, I'd love to see; send me a neomail and I'll feature your layout in the Hall of Fame.
