Just a bit of an update: Okay, so I've been working on completely updating my user page. My Part of it has been making a journal skin. This...took a little more work then I thought it would.
Pretty much had to learn CSS and HTML, and look up journal skin tutorials right here on DA. I'm really happy with how it's coming out so far, and hopefully, will have the end results posted up this week(end). I'm shooting for Saturday. Monday of next week by the latest.
Thank you a thousand times to
for making this rad tutorial
CSS Tricks: Journal break-downThis has been done before by many others I don't want to step on anyone's toes, I just wanted to give this a go myself
If you still write CSS NOT using gruze … stop that! Start using gruze. Just do it!
There are a few "hacks" that you will need to make it work totally under your control, but there's always help with those
Well, here comes help with those hacks (I gotta give ginkgografix credit for some of it, go hug her! That's an order )
At the end of this CSS Trick I will provide you with a template, that I use myself, as a base for creating new skins. It will only contain the basic classes of the journal deviation, from which it is made up of, the basic HTML, without any content.
Now, I know you will say: but that is not the default skin! That is not how journals without CSS look like! And you are right. But. There is always a but. But the default journal skin for coders is not the same as an unsk
that is uber helpful for understanding better how to make a journal skin for DA.
Make sure to check it out if you're interested in making a journal yourself!
In other news: had RL drama recently that I honestly, refuse to care about. (Ignore, whatever.) I'm literally fine though. There is way to much awesome going on in my life for me to dwell on it.
Hubby-Bear got a nice job, is going to classes to get a better job, and generally, is just being awesome. Unfortunately, this has caused him to cease drawing for a while, though I am working diligently (teasing and prodding) to get him to draw...well anything!
Penny is...well, there is a reason this is taking so much longer than usual.
Drawing has become a 'night shift' activity at this point (she tries to snatch/put my pencils and stylus in her mouth. Unplug my external hard drive, close my laptop, eat my paper while I'm drawing on it...) due to her...trolling.
I'm planning to update my page, then start posting regularly again. Thanks for patience, I promise I'll look through deviations and respond to messages just as soon as I can!
