For journals, how do I make a hovering box? so basically there is a box with the title and when you put your cursor over it, it turns into whatever content you put inside?

Could you provide the example?

Hello! Does anyone know the CSS for journals, but I mean the default one. I only want to change the background colour, nothing else. But when I input CSS and leave only the
.journalbox {
background-color: #DAE4D9;
part, everything else messes up. I like how it is now, I just want to change the background. So if there's some css for what my journal is when not having any skin installed, I'll be very thankful.. Like I said, I just want to put the greenish background colour so that it matches the rest of the page, nothing else fancy or complicated  :)

The "No Skin" skin is based on the gruze coding, therefore it messes up, cause journalbox was the old way of coding skins.

To get rid off all styling, insert this

* {background:none; border:none; padding:0; margin:0;}
.gr1, .gr2, .gr3, .tri, .gr-top img {display:none;}

This will give you a blank journal with the default dA background.

If you want to use your background color, also insert this code below the above code lines

.gr-box  {background-color: #DAE4D9;}

Thank you for the response! But I think, by my unsufficient expressing, I seem to have made a misunderstanding. I want to keep the formatting. Um, here's what I mean.…
On the left, it's with tampering with the CSS putting actually only the bacckground string. On the right is how it's by default. notice how everything is a bit more.. spacey somehow. That's what I was wondering if it can be achieved. Having it just as the right one but on the DA green background. So i'm guessing it will have to do with putting in cellpadding and everything. Hence I asked if anyone knows the values for that.

Anyhow, thank you and if I don't manage to figure it out, I'll just get over the "crunching" and at least have it in tone with the rest of the page :) It's really not a big deal since i use DA journals very seldomly but still, being a sore perfectionist, it started poking my eye a little so bright like that.

They should add some option to change the background colour of personal main pages though hahah.

The left is the old gruze "no skin" skin - the first part of the code I gave you removes all the borders, lines etc you see there, but leave the rest like text formatting untouched. The extra line changes the background color to your desired color, aka if you put all these  in the css part, you get a green skin similiar to the one on the right side.

If you just put in a background color change line, it reverts back to the old basic gruze skin. If you want a green/blank skin instead of the default white one, you need to strip the skin bare first ( though actually you overwrite the existing dA CSS code with your own one, at least partially). That's exactly what  the first two lines  do; while the third one adds in your background color. Play with padding and margin to have more space on the sides.

Hello! Im wondering if anyone can help me. How do I make the background image at the top scale to size (so instead of just being in the center the sides of image will reach left and right sides of journal) when the window for the journal is bigger.  It looks good on my page but when you click on the journal itself, the image doesnt reach both sides of the journal.
poserfan Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Professional
As your image is not seamless (due to the plushtoy and text on it) I wouldn't try to  scale it as it will deform the text and toy. Right now your option would be to make the image itself bigger by adding the background to both sides (something around 1500px width). As long as the image is centered you have text and toy in the middle and the overflow gets hidden.

A seamless background image could be set to repeat-x; with text and toy as centered overlay image (with alpha channel).

Another option is to limit the journal width itself, so that even on the journal page the journal doesn't go big.

thank you so much for the reply! Ill see about one of these options and try to make it work : )

So for my page, I seem to be having issues with the custom skin not fixing in the box correctly Owo Any suggestions? Like, its over on one side of the box xDD Thanks! :)
poserfan Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014  Professional
You talking about the custom background for your widgets?? From my side here, it looks like it is too small as it shows the orginal dA color at both sides. So a wider background is the solution.
ContinuingLegacy Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes :) I figured out that the scroll box is a lot bigger than I thought it was, so its covering up the custom skin. I'm going to see if there is a smaller scroll box latee :3 Thank you! :la:

Is there anything groups can do to customize their appearance other than using dividers and bullets on their journals?
Zaigwast Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014
Hi there, I was wondering, how did they -> make an awesome group profile like that ? :-?
GillianIvy Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Journals now have CSS3 transitions and transforms.  So they get the awesome zoom effect on the hovers of the images.  With Premium membership, you would be able to add these in your profile as well.  If you want to know more, perhaps contact the founder of that group for the specific set up.  I think it is several featured journals.  
Zaigwast Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014
Yes,thank you very much :aww:
poserfan Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Professional
Thru the use of various journals. As supergroup you have more options than a basic group.
Zaigwast Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014
Yes,thank you,and how do I find the special option in my super group ? :) or the interface ?
poserfan Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Professional
I guess over edit profile page, it should give you the options and then you just add the widgets  you want - like with your own profile.
