Does This Work With My Existing Journal CSS?Does This Work With My Existing Journal CSS?

The Journal Skin system is an exciting upgrade to the existing Journal CSS system. In addition to sharing and installing Skins, this awesome new feature gives you the ability to save your existing style, header and footer as a "custom skin", which can be used when you post a new journal entry. Unlike the previous system which simply remembered your most recent skin, you now have the ability to keep several journal skins stored and ready to use at any time!

How Do I Create and Share My Own Journal Skins?How Do I Create and Share My Own Journal Skins?

If you are a skilled designer with some awesome HTML and CSS skills, you can share your very own journal skin designs with the deviantART community. You can test out your designs on your own Journals by clicking on the options tab and customizing the CSS code.

This is old, but at the moment, I do not care.

I don't plan on becoming a member anytime soon.

I don't understand why all of the deviants can't use skins.

I agree, it makes the other deviants feel like they aren't rich enough to afford the darn premium things..

you "DONT" have to be rich to pay for a member you can earn premium other way and its a business this is how Deviant make money a premiums can customize they profile to present they work to get a better attention and more attractive so now if every one can do everything and people buy your art now you get money but Deviant get nothing and they are providing a service for you to present your work so yes this is why they separated a subscribe and a non-subscriber management ( it's business these day)

I'm very disappointed, I can't afford a premium membership. My old journal entires still have the skin on them, I went to post a new entry today to find out that I now can't even use my own CSS for a journal skin. I think that decisions like being able to use your own skin or not should've been made from the beginning and not made to be a surprise to the users. I know I would've liked to see an announcement in my inbox rather than having to search and find the answer. I still think users should be able to input their own CSS still, and premiums can use other pre-made skins, an artist shouldn't have to pay to express their individuality. =/ I'm so sad now! T-T

I don't like the idea of this. Although I would like to speak my mind, I don't want to offend anyone of course.

I see every site that allows you to make a free css coding. I do not feel like spending a cent on just having a little special Deviant Art Journal CSS entry. That is wasting a lot of money. I don't mind having the other features being Premium but this is nonsense. This feature should benefit for ALL members not just a Premium Membership. I was wanting to make a CSS coding for the journals but since I cannot use my own custom CSS then the main question is this:

Whats the point of making them? Its frustrating at times and makes you want to give up for not being able to solve for that simple coding.

I saw a user without a premium membership that has a journal layout other than the default green one.

I know when somebody had premium membership and used layout but then the membership ended and the layout stays the same but those I saw never had membership.

Keep up the fantastic work, you guys. <3 This is yet another great advancement for this site. I am so happy with all the progress with just this year alone. We had Critiques, Groups, and Customizable Journal Skins launched within mere months of each other. This is just too much for me to handle, I think I might pass out. :faint: Seriously though, keep up the stellar work. I am proud to be a part of this community. :heart:
