Photo-Film journal skin - dA by sturm Photo-Film journal skin - dA by sturm
For those of you who like the dA color scheme a lot, I've decided to make another version of my B&W Photo-Film journal skin. Feel free to use it, all I ask is that you give it a :+fav: if you use it :)

Some information about using this skin:

This skin is optimized for Firefox. It looks pretty ok in IE as well, but I'm having some problems with the navigation buttons (they don't switch color when you move over them with the mouse cursor). Also, the mini-gallery doesn't work as nicely in IE as in Firefox (it works, but you don't get the neat somewhat-bigger-thumbnail when you hover over it with the mouse). If anyone knows how to get it working nicely in IE too, please note me and I'll fix it.

Important: Don't forget to remove the spaces in the < div> codes below, otherwise it won't work!

I use a couple of background images, which are hosted at my own website. If you use this skin, please download the images from my website and put them on your own and refer to that location in the skin.

Mood icon & now doing
Don't forget to put the mood icon and the "now reading / watching / eating / drinking" stuff at the top of the journal, otherwise, it'll look ugly ;)

Don't forget to change the URL's in the Skin Header to your own URL's. Not that I'd mind the pageviews, but I'm sure it's not what you intended ;)

< div class="title">Title</ div>
< div class="textbox">Text</ div>

< div class="note">Note text goes here</ div>

< div class="minigal">
:thumbXXXXXX: :thumbXXXXXX: :thumbXXXXXX:
</ div>

Don't forget to put the mini-gallery within the < div class="textbox"> tag, otherwise it won't be indented like the rest.

Code for thumbs courtesy of `thespook. I changed the code a little bit so that you can hover over the thumbs from left to right without the pop-up thumb completely covering the small thumbnail right next to it.

If you have any questions about using this skin or if you want something added / fixed, just send me a note.

Hey how do you make a journal skin? I had an idea for one, but I don't know how to make it.

Hmm, that's not a very easy question to answer. However, there's a deviantArt group completely dedicated to journal skins, perhaps they can help you out: [link]
