Gruze Journal Structure

A quick reference for the structure of the new gruze-style journals (on customisable user pages; see this journal entry for a quick explanation of when deviantART generates gruze-style journals). While I am an Informatics student, and thus used to drawing diagrams, I'm not as good at making it clear and readable as `thespook (whose Journal Structure reference of course inspired this), but it should give you an idea of how the new custom-user-page journals are structured. Though, to be honest, you'll probably get more out of this if you're already familiar with HTML and CSS (and especially if you're already familiar with sleek Journal CSS).

Further references (stolen from `thespook, so they mostly only cover old sleek-style Journal CSS, but there are still good entry points for beginners among them):

Is there a text file for this format template available? Would love to copy the greatness you have in the image and then fill in the blanks. :)

So... How would I apply this to a journal?

Say I make my own journal layout (which in reality I have absolutely no idea how)... where do I input the CSS shown?

You need to be a "premium member" (subscriber), in which case you get the option to edit journal CSS when you create a new journal entry.

looks a bit confusing :lol:

will the code for the journals stay this way or can it happen that it will change because of bug fixing?
xork's avatar
I have no idea. I would imagine it's relatively stable, seeing as it's in public beta. But you never know.
GinkgoWerkstatt's avatar
ah ok. i guess i will still wait until it's available for everyone :aww:
