Welcome back! Sorry for the long delay between articles. I'm cutting them back to once a month so I have time to prepare nothing but the best CSS samples for you ;D
Let's begin!Rounded corners
You might remember this from a while back, but it's back yet again, with updated code! Thanks to long time supporter Monkeyshack
, we have a new set of rounded corners code for you to get your slimy little mitts on. These look awesome and don't rely on external corner images to function.
You can download them from here: Corners Example by MonkeyShack
. Any questions can be sent to myself or MonkeyshackDynamic journal?
Yes! It is possible! To a certain extent. How would you like a journal that changed appearance every time you viewed it? Using an older bit of code from my gallery, you can!
Download Random images in your journal.
. Replace the items in the array with your own backgrounds or icons or whatever, upload to your website, then point your background image to the script and you're set!:
Now each time you refresh your journal, the image should change. Now your journal looks different each time! Easy, wasn't it?Favebox updates!
I know I covered this in the last article, but it's just making such great progress, I thought I'd mention it again.
Faveboxes let you add a box to your journal, much like the News Favourites system, and lets people "favourite" a journal. New updates include the ability to pick the colours for your Favebox, upgrading for older journals, as well as easier to use and maintain code, so you don't have to mess with ?'s and &'s and such, and usernames starting with a P now work thanks for pickupjojo
If you haven't claimed your Favebox yet, get moving! Check it out here: Favebox v1
and if you're using an old Favebox, then you can upgrade it too, just follow the link in the deviation and find the upgrade button on the website!MSN statistics on your journal!
Most people don't know this, but there's a way you can let people who read your journal, know if you're on MSN. Using a third-party service and a bit of creativity, you can create a section in your journal that shows if you're online or not. Using MSNFanatic's Block checker, you can link to an image and tell the world if you're online:

Don't forget to change firstname.lastname@example.org to your hotmail address and remove the spaces . If you run into troubles, make sure to read the Triople forums
before coming to me and asking questions.Got something cool?
Then don't be afraid to send it in. even if you don't know a single scrap of CSS, send me your suggestions and I'll see what I can do. Just Send me a note
and I'll get back to you ASAP
And that's it for this month. Remember that this is now a monthly thing, not a fortnightly thing. I'm interested to see what you come up with!
