CSS and Skinning Resources

Sun Jan 15, 2012, 6:33 PM
Many people may have ideas about journal skins, or how they want their gallery folders to look. 
FAQs on this topic;

Tutorials

CSS Journal Tutorial -- Part I by cerena CSS Journal Tutorial - Part II by cerena Journal CSS for Beginners by S-Que Journal CSS - Part 1 by kuschelirmel-stock .:Gallery Structure by ginkgografix .:CSS Guideline by ginkgografix Old vs Gruze Journals by ginkgografix .:Adding Gallery CSS by ginkgografix Designing a Journal Part One by GillianIvy Tutorial: Making Journal Skins from scratch by X-P-T-Z Starting with dA CSSBack when CSS was allowed for journals for the first time there had been only a few deviants like ClaireJones, Lilyas or kuschelirmel-stock who provided free skins for everyone. Through the time more and more people enjoyed working on CSS skins and we also got the chance to skin our galleries.
These days, and thanks to the great resources about journal and gallery CSS that have been created, it is possible for nearly everyone to code their own skins and/or to share them with others. Still there are many people who struggle with some basic things, which is why we want to focus on some of them here.
General
:pointr: Where can you use CSS/HTML
On deviantART you can only use HTML and CSS on your journals, group blogs, your custom gallery folders, as well as your groups' galleries.
When you customize your profile widgets you can't add CSS or HTML like you can for journals/galleries. All you can do is using existing dA code that can be re-us

You can make a design with gimp just as fine, yes :)

The coding, however, is best done in a programme like notepad, or simply in the journal skin editor itself. :D
