:bulletred::bulletred: IMPORTANT NOTE :bulletred::bulletred:
Just now (Monday 05, 2013 / 02:51 AM CEST) I included a fix for the link display in the journal skin. Everyone who downloaded it before said date should donwload the skin again. It's not world-shattering if you're okay with it or don't have any problems. But if you do, here it is. Everyone having installed this skin after said date is in the green since, as I said, I updated the source code.

Thanks to ParisWriter for pointing it out, and a ton of thanks to GillianIvy, who told me where I would find that evil piece of code miscreant.




:heart: Thanks so much for the DD!





First off, some thanks are in order:
:rose: I want to thank Kiam who has taught me a great deal about coding.
:rose: I also want to thank SimplySilent and CypherVisor who provide a lot of darn helpful resources for free, including skins, tutorials, and answering some questions.
:rose: A "Yay!" for Google Webfonts. Just saying. I'm using a bit of Windows's Cambria, but mostly Google's Bitter.



:bulletred: 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 codes or graphics. I thank you in advance. :)




Check out the [LIVE PREVIEW]





:bulletgreen: HOW TO USE/HOW TO CUSTOMIZE

==> THE DROPDOWN MENU
You will find the necessary code in the header area.
The Warden-Commander's Cache is the heading of the dropdown menu. You can change it to whatever you like, just make sure to choose a title that is not longer than the background image. After that, there comes a container that contains the links. A link contains of the actual link and a link description. For example, if you want to link to your profile page, change the # in the container and leave My Profile as it is. You could also instead link to your Twitter account, or your website, and change # and My Profile accordingly. The same goes for the rest of the links. Just make sure to keep the container intact and you can add and remove and change almost as many links as your heart desires. Refrain from removing any other code, like the stupidheader, which is, in fact, the header image.

==> THE LISTS
You should be familiar with those. All I did was change their appearance a little. If not, refer to this here page: FAQ #104: What HTML formatting can we use on deviantART? And what is the format for these codes?

==> THE HEADINGS, WITH AND WITHOUT BACKGROUND
:bulletblack: For the non-capitalized, non-background heading:
YOUR TEXT
If you want it centered, go with this:
YOUR TEXT

:bulletblack: For the capitalized, non-background  heading:
YOUR TEXT
or
YOUR TEXT

:bulletblack: For the left-aligned heading with background (tbg1):
YOUR TEXT
You know how to align your text in case you want to.
:bulletblack: For tbg2 (always centered):
YOUR TEXT

:bulletblack: For tbg3 (always centered):
YOUR TEXT

:bulletblack: For tbg4 (always centered):
YOUR TEXT

:bulletblack: For tbg5 (always centered):
YOUR TEXT


==> THE BLOCKQUOTES
These here beauties consist of two elements: a div container as well as a span container. The div is the overall container containing quote and span container, while the span should hold the quote's author's name or really whatever. Use the blockquotes as you see fit. So, the blockquote is an already existing feature I punked up a tad (See the above linked FAQ entry). BUT you have, as I said, the option to wedge a span container between it. Whatever I do, it keeps formatting the blockquote, I added a * to it. DELETE THE STAR BEFORE USE, because if you keep the *, the blockquote won't work.
:bulletblack: For the 100% blockquote: <*blockquote>"THE QUOTE."QUOTE AUTHOR
:bulletblack: For the 40% right-aligned blockquote: <*blockquote class="right">"THE QUOTE."QUOTE AUTHOR
:bulletblack: For the 40% left-aligned blockquote: <*blockquote class="left">"THE QUOTE."QUOTE AUTHOR

==> JOURNAL COLUMNS
:bulletblack: For the two columns:
YOUR TEXT COLUMN ONE
YOUR TEXT COLUMN TWO

:bulletblack: For the three columns:
YOUR TEXT COLUMN ONE
YOUR TEXT COLUMN TWO
YOUR TEXT COLUMN THREE

:bulletred: :bulletred: Adding
to the end of the columns is imperative to avoid ugly graphical errors. Don't forget to put it, and don't place a space between any of it.

==> IMAGE AND LITERATURE THUMBS
This is easy, because you don't actually have to do anything except for using the thumb link. Each deviation provides such a thumb. Put the code in and let the magic happen. I do advise you, though, not to put more than three images or pieces of literature in one line.
:bulletred: :bulletred: Under Deviation Linking: FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

==> THE SCROLL BOXES
The minimum height of the scroll boxes are 100px, so if you're below 100px, there won't be a scroll bar.
:bulletblack: Dark font, light background:
YOUR TEXT

:bulletblack: Light font, dark background:
YOUR TEXT


==> FINALLY, THE TWO DECO DIVIDER LINES
:bulletblack: For the one I've been using mostly in the preview:

:bulletblack: For the red-ish one:




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

Uh, I'm not sure. How does tumblr work, exactly? Would you be the sole beneficiary of the skin or could it be distributed to pretty much everyone around there?

Hey, thanks a lot for doing this!! <3 I used your skin in my profile to celebrate my Premium Membership, i really like the style :D

Celvas Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
Wow, thank you. That's quite an honor. :hug: I'm happy you like it. Should you experience any issues, please let me know.
A Dragon Age and Star Wars fan who is also a cosplayer and general gaming buff uses a skin of mine. My mission is complete. ;_;

Congrats on the premium, btw. :dummy:
May I ask why you didn't buy a 3-months? Three 1-month premiums cost only 84 points less than two 3-months premiums. You'd have saved approx. 9 USD by comparison.

KibaNightray Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm glad to help you to get your mision completed (?) hahaha 
Thanks! :D 
It may sound absurd, but i only wanted the premium membership to change my name on DA (nobody out of here knows me by my old name xD), so i've been collecting points by llama-trades and only got 400 after doing this for months, so i decided to buy 1-month instead of waiting for more points >_<
Reply
:iconcelvas:
Celvas Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
Not really absurd. The way I see it, it's best to go with the display name that people know and therefore nets the most attention. If you wanted a pm primarily for that, then it doesn't really matter if it's one months or three months. :nod: I'd like to change my username, too, but I've plastered "Celvas" over pretty much everything I did, so not getting rid of that one. :grump:

:iconkibanightray:
KibaNightray Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, that's what I though, and because of that I decided to change it ^^ 
That's a pity :( I was thinking the same when i was going to change mine, but luckily I remembered that only three or four of my drawings have my old name on them, so i just changed it :D
