hey man! i just want to say it's a very generous act for you to be coding all these journal skins for free. i remember having you do the css of a few journals back in the day. i don't know if you remember me, but i moved accounts from Cushies.
anyways, its so cool of you to do that sorta thing!

Hi!
Unfortunately, I don't remember you at all. I'm really sorry, but there have been quite a few people wanting me to code stuff for them. Which is great, I like coding Journal Skins. But due to the number of requests and due to my very selective memory, I can only remember a finite number of people on the internet.

So, all the more thanks for remembering me! And just in case you are the one responsible for people getting to my profile to request coding, have a cookie: :cookie:

I can. But before I do that: If I code it with that background image, it will also have "Title", "Header", "Body" and "Footer" in the background. Are you sure you don't want to give me the image without the writing in it first?

So you can code journals right? May I ask how you change where the text goes and where the title box is?
Reply
:iconretsamys:
RetSamys Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes. Yes you may.
There are several ways to change the position of the main text area and the title. Usually, it suffices to use margin. If you use the old boxes, it could look like this:

.journaltop{
margin-top: 100px;
margin-left: 20px;
}

.journaltext{
margin-top:50px;
margin.left:10px;
}


Oh. Wait. Do you know about CSS coding? Maybe that's jumping in at the deep end.

Thanks!
I'm going to try to learn coding, yes. I'm going to start on a website called codeacademy.com. I plan to do graphics when I get older so I figured I'd start now.
Is it ok if I ask some more questions?

:iconretsamys:
RetSamys Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Always.

You'll probably need to learn more than what you need for a Journal Skin. The Journal Skins on dA use CSS (and not even all of CSS), a minimal website is usually coded in HTML and CSS. And then, if you want interactive stuff, there's PHP, JavaScript, Java and so many more.

It's not a waste of time if I can help you out.

Um... that one is a bit small. Could you tell me what you would like it to look like?
