Woohooo, here it is: my first walkthrough about CSS journals! :faint:

The zip file is about 4,3MB big, so might take a while.
I've added:
- the walkthrough pdf (21 pages!)
- both psd files
- the basic css file
- the original sized screenshots

Hope that this will help to understand the making of journal CSS a bit more. But like mentioned in the walkthrough: it's my way and others might work different. It just should give you a feeling of what needs to be done.

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 !violentsamurai, ~Espiroth, =blissart, and `bluem00n :hug:

That is really helpful, congratulations, by the way, but, *sigh*... I have a problem. The previous entries link just... disappeared. It's not visible...any chance that I can fix it? I know, I described the problem really badly, but there's nothing more to say! It's just not visible...
The new journals don't have that anymore. It's only in the preview these days, but not at the actual journal. So it's nothing you did wrong.
