CSS Changes

Thu Aug 10, 2017, 2:54 PM by poserfan:iconposerfan:


Deviantart is switching the whole side to HTTPS, starting today. Therefore it may affect your journal skins, gallery skins and most probably custom widgets whose images are not saved on a secure site. 

This means that there will be skins who won't work correctly anymore. Only exception: Skins submitted as Easy.Install skins.

We, journalcss  and CSS-Babes, can't do anything about it. You need to change the location of your images and then edit your skins in order to make them work again. :typer: revamp

Read the annoucement below

is there a way to get around lack of support for css filters, when creating skins?
also background-image:linear-gradient(-sumdegs,sumclr,color2); etc is working,
but on occasionally...

I'm having trouble finding a certain CSS code, it's the one where the background of a journal doesn't really move but instead in a fixed position, almost like it's floating in place

I used to see a ton of journals like this but I'm having trouble finding them now but this is kinda what I mean


Thanks in advance!

Hi I'm looking for some help with a journal skin that cuts off on mobile devices, is there a way to fix it so it will automatically fit in on mobile devices or could someone maybe help me fix my code so it won't cut off?
