Abundance of Grey Journal Skin by Wicked-Illusion Abundance of Grey Journal Skin by Wicked-Illusion
:pointr: :pointr: :pointr: LIVE PREVIEW :pointl: :pointl: :pointl:
  • you need to be a premium member/staff member/volunteer to be able to use this Skin
  • do not claim my Skin/design/CSS your own, do not re-distribute, sell etc.
  • smaller CSS modifications to suit your needs/taste for your personal Journal Skin use only are allowed of course
  • you may not take my CSS or parts of it and modify it to make new Skins for sale or free use by others without my permission.

Insert the features you want your Journal to have. You must erase all  _  from the brackets first, otherwise it won't work!


:bulletpurple: Edit Skin > Skin Header - replace the preview links with your own and name them, add more or remove those you don't need, but best not go crazy with its number if you want them all to display nicely in one line on Profile for people with smaller monitors too.

<_a href="your link here">link name here<_/a>

If you don't want any links, erase the entire Skin Header.


:bulletpurple: thumbs -  thumbnails get decorated automatically (I suggest removing all the space between thumbs if you don't want them set too wide apart)

:bulletpurple: divider - to divide text etc. just insert the code between content, like this:

<_div class="divider"><_/div>

:bulletpurple: blackquote - if you want to add actual quote or make something stand out use:

<_div class="blackquote">your text etc. here<_/div>

:bulletpurple: H1 title & H2 subtitle -  write the title/subtitle, mark it and pick H1 title / H2 subtitle option from the menu. Or if you like the harder way, write: 

<_h1> your title here<_/h1> / <_h2> your subtitle here<_/h1>

Note that H3-H5 haven't been specially coded for this Skin, so if you pick any of them you will get dA's default.

:bulletpurple: lists - if you want to create lists, write code one after another leaving no space in between and you'll get one list-item per line:

<_li>item 1<_/li><_li>item 2<_/li><_li>item 3<_/li><_li>item 4<_/li>


Please do not remove the credit for obvious reasons and to let people know who made the Skin to help them find it in case they want to install it too.

:note: Do not add any text/other to the Header or Footer because it will mess up the Skin look.



Many thanks to kuschelirmel-stock for her useful guide to help with learning the gruze style Journal CSS, as well as her Journal Css Gruze Style Part 1 & 2 sample Skin design & coding tutorial. And especially for how to remove that irritating image next to links leading outside of dA! :hug: Also thanks to bradleysays for his useful and informative CSS Did You Know? article series with tips and lessons on CSS. Pattern by Gr3g@subtlepatterns

Gruze style seemed a bit scarier and harder to learn, but it wasn't at all although it took a ridiculous amount of time to code this simple Skin, and since it's been so long I coded a Skin in the outdated one that I'd have to remind myself of everything again, I figured why not learn gruze style instead to code a new Skin I had in mind.

It looks awesome, only bug seems to be that thumbs can't be resized by dragging as of now.

If I got it right, when you drag a thumb onto the Skin, you can't make it bigger by dragging one of the corners? I just did it and I can. Thumbs resizing in not in connection with Skin. The only thing is that the thumbs are no longer decorated if you resize them, they must be in their original size for that. I checked your page, saw you have big thumbs there.

Yes, I usually rescale them in other skins. Though it wasn't obvious, the method you just explained does indeed work. Thanks!
