Clean Link Code Snippet by Gasara Clean Link Code Snippet by Gasara
A very simple little bit of CSS you can add to your journal and gallery skins to remove the new link styling.

Install to your journal using the link in the sidebar or copy/paste the code below.

a.external:after {
display:none!important;
}

span.user-symbol {
display:none!important;
}

a {
font-weight:normal!important;
}

Please note -
- This will only work for journal and gallery skins. It will not change the link styling in any other area of the site.
- You may need to play around with this a little if you've got a complex link styles already in your journal skin but it's good for the basics.
- You can also remove the link icon by adding http://deviantart.com/users/outgoing? before external urls. (Works for Custom boxes and other text areas on profile pages too)
- Also, the two examples of the username styling are the same but they are testing the old :devusername: and new @username formats. This also works for groups.

This is awesome, thanks!

But is that me or adding ://www.deviantart.com/users/outgoing? doesn't work anymore?
I've updated some boxes without doing anything on the links, and after I saved my changes the link icon reappeared Oo

:icongasara:
Gasara Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013

No, it doesn't seem to be working anymore.

 

I did managed to get around it though by removing the 'www' from that part of the code so it reads http://deviantart.com/users/outgoing? before urls now. It's currently working but if dA keep changing things it might not work for long.

only issue now is sing the www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…? before the outgoing link, makes the link blue, and if you have a colored page it doesn't look right
Reply
:icongasara:
Gasara Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2013
Unfortunately that's the new default link colour and it can't be changed in custom boxes, only in areas you can edit the CSS. It is making a huge mess of people's profiles.

I know. my profile is strictly black and silver with a little red thrown in. the blue is soooooo out of place, and its upsetting. U3U

getting your page looking right finally after tweeking it for months and DA does this :/

Thank you for this though, fixing the journal skin is at least something. i already had to install the code to some of my commissions that i did. to make sure their skins looked right.

all in all. what a mess DA I mean really. real professional -__-
