Are you reading through the instructions carefully?

Most common error with these is not copying/pasting the correct image URL's into the code, or forgetting to remove the [ ] square brackets from the image URL areas.

So make sure you are copying the "direct" image link into the CSS first and removing the square brackets, then copy and paste the entire css code into a new "skin" using either the new stash writer, or the old journal editor. Then copy and paste the header and footer text, and the "content" into the edit boxes in the skin window or live preview of the journal. See how that goes :)

Yess, I was reading through the instructions carefully ;) I problem I have are the image urls. I don't have Photobucket and I'm trying to find a good image hosting site, that doesn't resize the picture :(

I think I kinda getting what your talking about though :shrug:

Yer photobucket is the easiest to use to be honest for this kind of stuff and free. Plus it doesn't resize which is a bonus as long as you use the "direct" link :)

okay, my new problem is, between the text and the header is to much empty place...Can i change it somehow?

the link---> [link]

:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009  Professional General Artist
Nope the space is due to the header size and the area for moods should you choose to use them at the top, its something that was simply a quirk of the coding and image sizes I used :)

its such a wonderful css design, but somehow i can´t activate it correctly.Ö.ö
Somehow it doesn´t show me any of the images...I replaced my photobucket url´s to the appropriate places but somehow it doesn´t work=((
May you can help me? Its the best looking design I have found yet!x(

Elandria Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009  Professional General Artist
Link me to the journal where you have placed the code then I can tell you where you went wrong :)

Normally the problem is using the incorrect link from photobucket. You must make sure you are using the "direct link" and are removing the [ ] square brackets from the URL locations in the CSS when you replace them. (CSS does not like square brackets)

Acayth Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah my fault was that i haven´t used the direct link to photobucket, now i can see the images but i have another problem nowxd
well maybe i can fix it, and if not, then i will ask youx3
thanks though!

I keep meaning to get around to it but this has 4 or 5 different colour schemes which means I'd have to do an installable skin for each version. More Work :|
