Free Customizable Deviant Lace  Journal Skin by Shattered-Earth Free Customizable Deviant Lace  Journal Skin by Shattered-Earth
Wow, thanks for the DD! I hope people will also take a look at my other art TuT





Just in time for the Free premium membership day! Try this skin out free of charge! <3 This is a free journal skin for anyone to use so long as they do not remove credit or edit it other than the designated editable logo top and option info box

Preivew the skin LIVE here: [link]






How to Use

Just install to journal and it should be ready to use. There are some code things you should be aware of:

:bulletgreen:Headers
Use this to make a header
<h1>Header Text Goes Here</h1> and you should start the paragraph on the same line for best effect!

:bulletgreen:Blockquotes
Use this to make blockquotes
<blockquote>
blockquotes look best with a line break in front but not one behind! </blockquote>

And don't forget your basics like
<b>bold!</b>
<i>italics!</i>

:bulletgreen:Commission Info/Footer
You CAN change the commission info box. When you go to your skins, you EDIT this skin, and the last box at the bottom (the footer) has the commission info. Just change the "Commission Info" part all the text under it to whatever you want! Suggestions for alternatives are friends, features, links to your own art, etc. :) Visually here: [link]

:bulletgreen:Header "My Journal" Image
You CAN change the logo at the top if you know how to use photoshop or any program that opens PSD files and saves as 24-bit transparent pngs, feel free to change it yourself! Just download the PSD file HERE: [link]

And look for the layers that say IMAGE MIDDLE (That's the pencil) and TEXT to change the text. You can also adjust the RING if you would like. These already have filters and effects on them so all you have to do is draw!

After you save it as a 24-bit transparent .PNG file, upload it some where and look for this bit of code:
.journalbox .journaltop{
background-image: url('http : //fc08.deviantart . net/fs71/o/2012/019/3/5/280273041_356448_lacemiddlet_by_shattered_earth-d4mv472.png');


Replace the underlined URL there with your new header URL!

:bulletgreen:Matching Boxes
Want the rest of your DA page to match? Use this background!






Help!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask! This is my first shared skin so there might be issues, I will be happy to try to address all of them <3

:bulletred:There's a white line on my journal?
This is a bug my fault :( Just re install and it should be fixed now

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-02-21
Free Customizable Deviant Lace Journal Skin by *Shattered-Earth looks great and blends well with the colour of dA, and is very easy to use. The suggester loves this for more reasons than would fit in this description!
This skin comes with a matching custom widget background too.

It seems okay to me,  have you tried deleting that entry and installing it fresh and only adding text in the main part to test it out? If you change anything you might have deleted some code by accident. If it's a system wide problem because DA updated something i might not be able to fix it but i want to make sure that's it and it's not something else that happened while you were making your entry

I haven't touched any of the coding. ;w;
And I've tried making fresh journals, but nothing. It's even affected all previous ones when it shouldn't.

Hmm okay i mean that's strange cause it hasn't changed any of my journals (Same code, just different graphics). I might try looking at this one specifically a little later, but i do want to confirm that if you press install, make a new journal entry with just for example one word in the main text area with no other changes, it just shows up in the final like that?

It's fine, sometimes weird things just happen. Reinstalling the skin is like restarting your computer, you know how that sometimes fixes things for no reason? Hope it continues to keep working!

You can remove the entire graphic but to edit the image you will need a program like photoshop or gimp etc.

Hey this is really great and I want to use it as long as I can due to the one-day premium membership day. Great simple yet charming design!
I have an issue with the editing though...Not familiar with coding at all but I tried following your steps. It came out like this though tenshpai-senpai.deviantart.com…
Could you help me fix it, if you have time?

It looks like you changed the dimensions of the .psd i gave you, have you tried sticking to those? 

If you change the size of the image you have to change the offset to match (the numbers under the URL in the code where you put in that new image!)

How...do I match it?

:iconshattered-earth:

Where it says background-position:-150px 20px; literally the line after the url you put for the image?

You need to change the numbers to move the image. I cannot do the math for you so  you will have to either do the math or use trial and error. It's the same method i would do so you won't save any time by asking me to do it for you XD

I really like this! ^^ But I'm having a problem... the image I put is repeating itself on the top :( At first, I tried typing "repeat-x" again and nothing happened, then I closed the window and began again. Now, when I put "repeat-x" or "no-repeat", the image just disappears, and I have to make it repeat at least once for the image to show up...

It's only showing a little bit of the bed on the right side... if you don't know what to do, it's okay, but I don't think that should be there xD

:iconshattered-earth:
Shattered-Earth Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013   Digital Artist
Oki so firstly that effect is on purpose, but i understand why you might not like it. It actually cannot repeat on your main page (cause journals only take up half the screen, go see for yourself :) ), and only repeats if you open your browser up to full size on a wide screen monitor just to read journals. You can't fix this in CSS beause if you set it not to repeat, where you see the extra bed would just turn into blank space without any lace or anything which would look even weirder XD.

If you absolutely cannot stand this, you can change the original file to be longer, by duplicating the lace till its longer than your monitor resolution so you don't see it. The other option is to find a picture that doesn't abruptly cut off and use the original CSS setting. The skin simply isn't built to do what i think you want it to do? Sorry

NancyKilljoy Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Ohh, ok. Don't worry, I just wasn't getting why setting it not to repeat was making it blank. Now I understand. It's not that bad, actually, I think I'll just leave it like that xD

Since I roleplay here, I'll have two similar journal skins, one for me personally and one for the RP... and I'll make the RP one with a picture that will work.

Thanks a lot for the help! And the skin, again <3
