.:Making a journal layout by ginkgografix .:Making a journal layout by ginkgografix
And the next more complex tutorial that was laying around for a longer time already. I'm not really satisfied with it and there have been more tutorials planned- showing you the stuff that need to be done next etc- but um.. dunno. Maybe later. If anyone want's that template, let me know, still not coded yet :aww:

The zip file is about 3MB big.
I've added:
- the walkthrough pdf (13 pages!)
- the original sized screenshots

Hope that this will help to understand of how to create a journal layout. But keep in mind: it's my way and just one way of doing it. Others might work different. It just should give you a feeling of what needs to be done in general.

I have to thank my beta readers, who took the time to hunt down my grammar/english mistakes and gave me hints where i should add some more stuff.
A big thanks to ~Espiroth, =blissart, ~arrkane and *callsignKateJones :hug:

Something like that can't be explained that easily or with one/two sentences.
What you need will be a layout that shows how the skin should look like later (colors, images etc) and once that is done you need to code it via CSS and HTML. THat's usually the more time consuming and difficult part.

People who have such unique skins either create it on their, use a template or ask someone else to do it for them. For tutorials about how to code you could take a look at #eCSSited. There are plenty of resources.

It takes some time to get used to it. But once you figured it out it's just a matter of how to combine the single elements :aww:

Ummmm ok then I trust you on your word but I've always been bad at scripting codes -.- ever since I met Adobe flash.

Flash is way more complex, so i wouldn't really compare both with each other.

True but thanks to my first encounter with flash I've come to dislike scripting in any form and way -.- the drawing part for a background won't be that much of a problem but it's just that scripting part that makes me give up -__-
