:star: get HTML / CSS here
  • to make the thumbs look pretty, use the following HTML:
    <div class="feature">:thumb###: :thumb###: :thumb###:</div>
  • to write a small heading, wrap it in two bold tags, to write a big heading with an underline, wrap it in three bold tags.
  • Don't forget to change the hover menu links! The code you stick in your footer has the links you need to change.
  • You can easily change the photo in the top - it's a single image, with the photo 'frame' being separate. Look through the CSS, it's the background for .photo_ - replace the URL with a link to your replacement image :)
Because it's fixed-width I had to make it narrow enough to fit on userpages at 1024, so that kinda sucks, but you can squeeze in about three thumbs per row (two looks better though).

The images themselves are hosted on my website, and I don't mind if people keep the hotlinks in place. If you want to put them on your own server however, download the .rar from dA using the link on the left sidebar.

This is not a skin that will look nice in IE. Because IE chokes on CSS I've had to hide all the interesting bits; IE users will only see the background image.

Sorry about that, I'm late on the hosting bill so my site is down.

Good news is that the live preview has the images hosted on dA's servers, grab the links and plug them in :)

Awesomesauce! I've been using this journal skin for close to six months, but just noticed today (when I had to download the images for myself because of a server error) that there's a nifty thumb thingy! I like it :w00t:

I have to say what I love most about this dealio is the lovely variation in colour... vintage, but not boring ;)

You'd make an excellent con artist, you always know exactly what to say.

Or so it seems - but that's the point ;p

The original design was bland, so I sought out ways to make it a little bit more interesting. Never felt confident with colours, so it's quite a compliment.

After looking for a few dozens of "most popular" CSS pages, this is the one i like the most. Any clue on when you might be getting around to updatig it? :=}

Now that I've got my site back online (albeit under a different domain name) I'll be updating it sooner than before. For now, a compromise is to give .journalbox a background-color of #B9C5B9, so that the different background colour doesn't look so much like a bug.

I'll keep you updated though.

err, my site is back up, but under a different domain name (spq.me, not koopseht.net) so the old links don't work.

When I update the graphics, I'll update the CSS, and then I'll update the link to point to the new location. No point doing it yet though.

Hi there, the URL to "get HTML / CSS here" seems broken. Is the HTML/CSS still inside the RAR file (in the Download Button)? :)
Reply
:iconthespook:
thespook Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2009
Yeah, you'll have to download the rar. Link is broken because my website is down.

Keep in mind though, I have to edit the skin to make the background colours match deviantart's new userpages, so it might not be worth your time until I get that fixed.

cool! i just put it in, but im lost when it comes to the photo part. i see two .photo_, and guessing by the text, ( i have no experience in this department), it looks like it should have the same photo (vintage man)in the preview.
thanks, man!
