Dark dA V2 + V3 by nokari Dark dA V2 + V3 by nokari
What we have here is an alternative to the bright colors of dA that consists of a Journal CSS, Gallery CSS, custom Gallery Icons, and a couple goodies for your enjoyment.</sub>

:bulletblack: V2 utilizes a basic dark gray/black theme and incorporates the brilliant green color of the dA search bar in various places.

:bulletblack: V3 is based on dark colors carefully picked from throughout dA, providing a more muted color scheme that also matches the look and feel of dA's darker features.

Each version is split into respective packages containing all necessary content and instructions. For the journal and gallery CSS, you will need to host the provided images on your own image hosting site (Photobucket, ImageShack, etc.).

To use the Gallery CSS, go to a Folder in your gallery and click on Edit > Options > Style. Opt in to use CSS (if you haven't already) and paste the CSS into the box.



Thanks go to =Grayda and his awesome new Favebox. To use the Favebox, you must first register your account. For instructions, read this: [link]

Thanks to =alder-sketch and his original myspace/facebook/twitter icons.

Thanks also go to `mindfuckx for the original 'Gruze' design that inspired this way back last year and for his encouragement.


:bulletred: THE EDIT BUTTON WILL NOT WORK FOR PEOPLE USING INTERNET EXPLORER :bulletred:

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-03-07
Dark dA V2 + V3 by `nokari An awesome design. On top of that it's a set of Journal and gallery CSS with matching gallery icons in 2 different, neat color schemes. Just simple, sleek and stylish. I love it. - An anonymous Suggester says "The formatting is very well done, and the extras really catch my eyes. The CSS is overall very, very well coded." - This also had another anonymous Suggester, but I wanted to mention it anyway. ( Suggested by AndyGassner and Featured by 2dazed )
:iconnoxiousone:
This is one of the most impacting, stylish, clean and well done CSSes I've ever seen on deviantART. It's pretty hard to me to write bad critiques about such work, but I think that probably the text in the journal should be aligned to 'justify' and the text in the dark grey box should be aligned to 'left'. But that's just my opinion! Otherwise the CSS is absolutely perfect and it deserves it's Daily Deviation status. Sometimes the hovered backgrounds don't load as fast as I think they shoud, but that's not something unusual. Keep up the good work, bro!!!

:iconjstradart:
After watching Nokari's journal I've found the CSS to be lacking in any originality. Its very basic and seems to be missing something. The impact is minimal and doesn't draw you towards the journal when your on his dA page.

I do like the edit button, but.. since it doesn't work in IE its a useless feature for anyone that doesn't use Firefox. IE and Firefox are the most common browsers and having an application that cross-browse' is an important feature.

Great technique. Which has always been Nokari's strong point. I hope that he utilizes this technique and creates a more impact-worthy CSS in the future.

Gave it a try. When I installed it my journal displayed in the old style, though, not the Gruze version shown here. Case in point, the code uses older classes like ".journalbox" and such. I didn't see any other code in the archive I downloaded.

Nope, most people I know don't use them at all and neither do I. If you want, you can include them with some slight editing of the CSS.

Hi, I'm using the following in my header (using custom images since I don't want to use the Facebook/Twitter/Myspace) and the images won't show up. Even when using the original HTML, the images don't show up. The Favebox shows up just like it should but the website images do not.

I'm running Firefox 3.5.2 on OS X 10.6.1. Any idea what is causing those images not to show up?

Oh believe me. I get an error no matter how I try to upload any of my skins. But the biggest issue is that all of my skins have editable areas, so it's include every feature or none of them and let people add them themselves by giving them instructions in the comments.

First time ever I'm not making my own journal CSS. Thanks for already making exactly what I wanted :highfive:

After cutting out all the crap this is a really neat and tidy design, it matches the rest of the site but still stands out enough to be catching.

I believe I'll be using this for a few years :nod:

Hello,

First of all, congrats with this very cool css.
I am using it for a while now but there is one problem. The Gallery CSS doesn`t seem to work in Firefox. It does work in IE and Opera. Is there anything I can do about it to fix it?

Thank you

nokari Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2009  Professional Interface Designer
I use FF3 on two separate computers (one windows, one mac), which is what the CSS was tested on. If it is not showing the way it is supposed to, you have either edited the CSS, missed one of the instructions, or you have a conflicting add-on installed.

Looking at some of your folders, the CSS is showing up the way it's supposed to, though you don't have any deviations in the folders, so I don't know what the issue is.

Oer-Wout Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2009
I believe your gallery-css is working as it should indeed.

I don`t know what the issue is either. There are several deviations in all the folders. They don`t show up in FF3 but do show up in IE and Opera. The strange thing is that other people with firefox can`t see the deviations either. I just looked at your gallery and the folders are empty too!

FF 'bugreport' says: css/gallery2 jc.js --> console is not defined

Ah well, I will just wait and see.

Thank you.

I had a lot of problems with this CSS. I uploaded the images to Flickr and put in the links, i registered for a favebox etc. The overall result was not good :( All the text changed colour and went underlined when i hovered on it, the facebook and twitter pictures didn't show up, and I had random little white boxes with red crosses in them all over the top of the journal.
Do you know what i'm doing wrong?
Reply
:iconnokari:
nokari Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2009  Professional Interface Designer
I suggest you don't use Flickr. Put the images up on Photobucket or Image Shack and be sure that you replace the corresponding urls in the CSS/HTML with the urls of the images you upload.

If the text gets underlined when you hover over it, then you have an href tag that hasn't been made correctly (either your missed a quote mark or forgot the tag).

Red boxes would indicate that the url address you've entered doesn't exist (again, make sure you replace the exact urls) or there is something wrong with your image hosting service (which is why I suggest Photobucket).

Make sure to upload the images to your own file hosting site, change the urls in the code to match them, and copy/paste the HTML into the Header box of your journal.
