:bulletblack: RULES
You may install it, of course - that's what it is here for, after all - you may use it, and naturally you'll have to change it to suit your liking. All I ask is that, if you should like and install it, that you may :+fav: it and maybe leave a comment. Please do not re-upload this journal skin, remove the credits, or hijack the code or blocks of code. I thank you in advance. :)




:bulletblack: Check out the [LIVE PREVIEW]





:bulletblack: HOW TO USE/HOW TO CUSTOMIZE

==> CHANGING THE LINKS MENU
I put in some of the usual suspects. You can find and change the links and link names in the Skin Header. You only need to change # to the URL and the name to whatever name you wish.
Example: <div class="button"><a href="#">My Profile</a></div>

==> BLOCKQUOTES
You can simply use the <blockquote>Text.</blockquote> tags. Or push the button in Rich Editing Mode.

==> FONT STYLES
I have styled h1, h3, and h5 for use with this journal skin.
Example: <h1>Text.</h1>

==> DIVIDER CODE
<hr>




:heart: And that's it! Have fun and enjoy, my devious friends! :heart:

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. Personally, I'm not so happy with the colors. Bit to greenish, you know. Gotta change that sometime in the future. Still, thank you for your comment. It is much appreciated.

Of course you can use it for a custom box. I didn't use any images files and I am fairly certain I do not own the colors. :giggle:

Profile customization is a lot of fun, I agree. Cute Smile Two things, though: on wider screens, the background is hacked off left and right. You might want to go with a wider background image for your widgets. Also, the titles are too high up. I hope you don't mind, but I tested it a bit, made this and put in two line breaks before the title. Looks like so.

oh! since i have a normal sized screen, it had looked so normal to me
thank you for letting me know! and then fixing the image! too kind of you ;u;

hmm i just tried it and this happens
i suppose its because i don't have a wide screen :/
this kinda bums me out because now i know that people with wide screens are not going to see my page properly >.<

I replicated your ID with working code in a widget on my profile. Just go to my page, it's the widget all the way down on the left. Tell me whether you want the code. :)

Of course there is. You do not have the code I wrote. With that code, it will work perfectly, which is why I asked you if you wanted it. I did not change the image or anything, I really wrote the whole code new so everything will work fine for you. The problem lies with the wrapper and line breaks. The way you do it, it does not work. The way I do it, it does. Do you want it?

You're quite welcome. :huggle: I love it when people make free to use skins. I've tried to get the hang of that CSS stuff, but without a teacher actually present to show me how to do it or to help me identify mistakes when I make them(which is like always) I just don't get it. So I have to rely on generous people like you. :heart:

Though I will say that it's too wide, I think. On the journal page at "standard view" its fine but on my profile page it trails off the page, I have to actually zoom out from standard just to see it all. I know that also has to do with screen size(resolution) but yeah it doesn't fit on the profile page. And because I have vision problems, I zoom in all my pages on DA, some journals resize themselves or rearrange things to fit, some don't why is that?

Artsy
Journal Skin Contest
Inspiration is free - and deviantART is full of it! We want you to take a piece of art and use it as inspiration to create a Journal skin. Your task is to represent a chosen piece of artwork in a Journal skin or a Journal design through the use of colour, typography, graphics, design, mood, and other elements which you think relate to the artwork in one way or another.
Grab some inspiration
deviantART's various galleries are full of inspiring artworks. Take a browse around, and find something which catches your eye! Here are some places in which you may like to get started:

#Ode-to-simplicity's Gallery
 (Has a section "News to CSS" very helpful links there!)

Just in case you want to give it another go. The first thing I could do was text-shadow. :giggle:

I realized that, too. I am still experimenting a bit with the sizes. Wavering between 800px and 900px. The thing with a fixed width is that, quite honestly, it is easier to style. ^^; There are different width properties: width sets a width, doesn't get any wider, doesn't get any skinnier. Min-width means that the value you put in there is the minimal width; it does not narrow. Max-width means that the set value is the maximal width, but can narrow. Basically, a fixed size makes the easy way out accessible: you don't have to work with percentage values to define the width of sub-elements. You can say: gr-box is 900px wide, and this sub-element is 700px wide. Otherwise it would be max-width: 900px; for gr-box, for example, and width: 77%; (roughly). It tends to give you more control, but that may just be me. When working with graphics-heavy skins, a fixed width is almost inescapable.

Wie geht's dir sonst so? Was machen die Finger?

Ich hätte gerne Elethea und Teagan geshippt, aber Teagan ist ja mehr der Diplomat. Sie braucht einen wie Nathaniel, der mehr von ihrer Natur ist. Aber das wird nichts mehr. Sie ist ja gerade mal darüber hinweg, ihm sauber das Gesicht vom Schädel reißen zu wollen. Ich denke die ganze Zeit darüber nach, mit wem ich sie pairen könnte, aber wenn ich die so durchgehe, fällt mir außer lebenslangem Zölibat nicht viel ein. :XD:

Die Finger, ja, das ist so eine Sache ... ich vergesse andauernd, wie der Arzt es genannt hat. Kapselriss in beiden, das ist es. Er meinte, dass ich das gleich in beiden Fingern habe, ist so großes Pech, dass man es schon wieder Glück nennen kann. Auf jeden Fall hat er die Finger ruhig gestellt; ich soll sie nicht bewegen, zu regelmäßigen Checkups gehen, und wenn alles gut geht, sollte ich die Finger in ein paar Wochen wieder normal gebrauchen können. Die sind so fett angeschwollen und schwarz geworden, weil Blut und Flüssigkeit ins Gewebe gelaufen ist... Vielen lieben Dank, dass du nachfragst. :tighthug: Ich weiß das sehr zu schätzen. Und ich wünschte, ich könnte irgendetwas tun, damit es dir besser geht. :(

Oh Gott... schon bei dem Gedanken schüttelt es mich... ich hoffe sehr, dass die Schmerzen nachlassen und das schnell besser wird und :hug: Ach... und ich jammer nur auf hohem Niveau glaub ich... Oder ich schiebs auf meine Medikamente... eine der hundert Nebenwirkungen können auch depressive Stimmung sein D: 

Und hmm... Elthea ist schon kompliziert... bei solch komplizierten Chars greif ich ja immer nach OC Loveinterests, bei denen kann man sagen, dass sie hartnäckig genug wären nicht aufzugeben XD ein unerschrockener Grauer Wächter aus Anderfels z.B. (Da hätte ich sogar spontan eine Idee für XDD)

Medikamente können eine Menge ausmachen. Ich muss auch Medikamente nehmen, die mich höchst depressiv machen. Je höher die Dosis, desto schlechter die Stimmung... Dumme Medikamente. :(

Eigentlich hatte ich meinen Blick auf Anders gerichtet. Ein bisschen wie Alistair, aber sein eigener Mann. Elethea kann ihn definitiv gut leiden und mit Ausnahme von Oghren ist er der einzige, der ein Lachen aus ihr heraus bekommt. Ich würde sehr gerne irgendwas schreiben. Ich hätte ja mit Luthan weitergeschrieben, wenn meine Finger nicht dazwischen gekommen wären. Und momentan tippe ich im Geschwindigkeitsequivalent einer zurückgebliebenen Schnecke. ._.

Werd ich machen. So traurig ich das auch finde. Ich kann nicht viel tun. Durch die Immobilisierung ist die ganze rechte Hand unbrauchbar. Ich kann kaum was machen. Lange. Weile. :no: Du kennst das sicher auch, wenn du etwas im Kopf hast und es juckt dir in den Fingern, aber du bist völlig außer Gefecht gesetzt. Das ist kein schönes Gefühl.

Anders is total klasse, außerhalb von DA2. Er hatte in DA2 im Party Banter und auch im Dialog so seine Momente, in denen der "alte" Anders durchschien. Und meine Hawke hat ihn auch geromanced, aber ab Kapitel 3, als er ihr ganz gleichmütig und ohne Reue gesteht, sie die ganze Zeit wegen der Justice-Sache angelogen zu haben, hat sie das Vertrauen in ihn verloren. Nun wohnte er bei ihr, und oft, wenn sie nach Hause kam, war er es, der sie begrüßte. Und sie begann, es zu hassen. Ich habe das in tatsächliches Gameplay umgesetzt; wachsende Zweifel an Magiern, also keine Magier mehr mit in der Party, nur noch Leute, denen sie vertraute: Aveline und Varric, und dann noch Fenris, dessen Ansichten immer mehr Einfluss auf sie nahmen, dank Anders' schlechtem Vorbild, dem fehlenden guten Einfluss ihrer Schwester, die in den Deep Roads verstorben ist, und dem grauenhaften Tod ihrer Mutter durch die Hand eines Apostates. :nod: Anders war mal so tooooll. ;_;
