Build your own Journal skin by CallMeGav Build your own Journal skin by CallMeGav
The coveted Journal skin.
While there are many great skins out there for Premium Members to use, a lot of deviantART users wish they had their own, but lack the coding knowledge to do so. So I came up with the idea to allow the users who do not wish to learn, or cannot grasp a new language to customize their skins.

This is a very basic example of an option I would love to see included. Users don't always need huge, fancy journal skins, they may just want to edit the default one a little. So this simple example shows how it could be done. Whereby a user would simply need to input words which could then be translated into CSS for the journal HTML.

The range of options could be increased, and there could be a lot more freedom, but I certainly feel this would be a great addition to dA so that users can make the most of their premium membership!

okay, my first critique....

okay, its vey helpful for new artist trying to grasp basics of journal HTML. I have never seen another tutorial like this, being a full-star originality, the impact was full stars because it impacted on people just starting coding. it was kind of big, so I had to download it to see it, it really helped me with coding and I hope it helps many other people, I would reccomed people this because its easy to understand and very helpful.

overall, a very good and well written tutorial. I hope many artist use it to help them.

So making your own journal skin requires knowledge of html coding?  And how exactly is that supposed to help the 95% of us who are on this site to begin with because we're RIGHT brained?
