Every now and then it happens that i get asked how to code certain features for journals and similar to that i often see journals where someone struggles with coding from scratch or doesn't exactly know how to do what.
That's why i figured out that it might be helpful to have several very(!) basic code snippets, people can use to get started.

All these code snippets are rather plain code, mostly without any fancy images and much colors. They should just show the start. The possibilities of what can be done with that code are endless.
Also these snippets do not affect the journal in general, they will just add that featured "journal element" and nothing more.

I hope that this will be helpful for some people. To use the code snippets just click install. Everything can be found in the Skin Header or Footer and in the CSS form area.
No additional content code is needed!

Keep in mind that all these code snippets will refer to the gruze-structure, in case special journal classes will be affected by the code.

:note: Dumb fairy moment is over. It's possible to have these at the outside - which looks better - without major changes. Instructions of how to move them to the right side are included in the CSS.

(Just asking to not break any rules)
So, basically, I can use this for making a new journal skin? Sorry if I sound like a complete idiot, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. :D They are so awesome!
Yes, these are made to make skinning a bit easier for those who aren't that familiar with CSS, but still want nice features for their skin :aww:
You can do whatever you want with it. Ok maybe not redistributing them as is :B

Are you going to do top/bottom inner/outer ones as well?
