Sweet Vintage Journal Skin by Gasara Sweet Vintage Journal Skin by Gasara
09.10.2013 - Updated to remove dA's new default external link styles.



After posting the Sweet Vintage custom box backgrounds I was asked for a simple journal skin to go with them. So I made this!

While I understand basic CSS I've not attempted a journal skin before so it was a bit of a challenge. It's probably as simpe as skins can get but that just means that it's up to you to make it snazzy! It should be really easy to customise and I've even made a tutorial to help you do this too! (See below...)

Hello,
Thanks you very much for this skin, simple but pretty. I think use it for my journal, but could you say me how do you put/create? the brown box (like feature) beetwen the two text please? I didn't found how to do this.

Edit : it's only a bloc quote, I dont' need help.

Hey gasara, I am having some trouble with this skin I'm hoping you could help me with, if you have time. (not a tech wiz here).

The header  contains links to gallery, sketchbook, commissions faq, and note me, But I cant seen to get the links to work. How to I get them to link to something in particular? Right now they just link to DA search engine?

what you need to do is edit the journal, go up into the header, replace "http://" with the link you'd like it to go to

i hope this helps, even though you weren't asking me ^u^"

I am also using this journal skin and I am a little confused. How do you edit the journal?

when you open the journal to make your journal entry, if you look to the right you'll see your journal skins under what says "Installed", to the right of the "Installed" would be "edit skin". click edit skin and the links should be in the skin header

I have a question about the feature section. I wanted to put an image there but it doesn't have a thumb. I just have the image url because it's from Stash. What do I do?

Click on the Edit Skin link in the sidebar above your skin options. The links can be edited in the Header section of the pop-up and the feature box can be edited in the Footer section.
