Good'ol dA
_________________

For those who prefer dAv4.
I give you, 'good 'ol dA', a deviantSkin for firefox and opera users.
This skin makes your favourite site look like you favourite site used to look like.
( more info..)

:megaphone: This skin isn't available at the time. I took it down because it was outdated and updating it with dAv6 around the corner doesn't make much sense. Maybe I'll update it to work with dAv6. No promises though :)

Really cool layout! I tried to put it on and it didn't work, but that's been happening a lot lately. I haven't really gotten the hang of Stylish yet - I only got Firefox 2 days ago.

..And I accidentally pressed the "Request Print" button, so if you get that message, ignore it. xD

Wow, it's depressing that I didn't find this sooner, because I absolutely love it. I miss the old layout so much, so I cannot thank you enough for making it. Please, when you can (yeah, went and read in your journal why the link wasn't working, haha), move this one! I love it. Thanks so much for making this! :)

None of the links work to download the css. I keep getting "Firefox can't find the server at phantasize.be". I want to use this and the dAv4 styled comments.

I've missed the v4. Especially the pretty comments boxes, and the message center. Ah, I'm so grateful. :)

Here's some issues:
-Although the next/previous deviation buttons appears to be in v5-style, with the light blue colour.
-The user-pages seem to have moved to the left, because of the Wishlist, Shopping account, etc. buttons.(?)

Thanks again.

The new Customize button on the front page is... Broked. =(
Great skin though. =)

Any chance you can get journals working properly? Since with CSS customized journals, you get things that go wrong, like visually. Not too sure how to describe it, sorry.
Take a look at my journal, and yours, and a few other peoples' journals. I also noticed it replaced my link colour and adjusted my font sizes.

Meh.

Great skin, you really do rock, Mindfuck. ^_^

Oh, and for some reason the header never fits in, it's just the single logo picture in the top right that's it's own colour.

It's a great skin, nonetheless, but unfortunately at this point, it doesn't work well with custom journal CSS.

Still, kudos to you man for making this, it's great!

You have no idea how happy I am to see this! I've gotten used to using dav5, but it just doesn't have that tight appearance 4 did. Now I've got it back! :boogie: :w00t:

I'm sure you've been asked this a ton of times, but I must ask. ;) Have you considered making different colors available in this skin? I'd drool and be ever so delighted to have a version of this sexy work of yours in black! :D

This is a fantastic skin, but I have a quick question about it. When I apply it, I can't seem to find the 'update journal' or 'submit deviation' buttons. Is it not possible to do these with the skin applied, or am I really missing something?

thanks, and great skin! :)

:iconjanvanlysebettens:
janvanlysebettens Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2006  Professional Interface Designer
yes you're really missing something..
( and if you would have read some of the comments below you would have already found it out :))

if you clicke the little dA logo in the top left corner of your screen, a little popup-menu will appear,
this menu contains those links you need.. just as in dAv5 with the default skin..

Since subscribers could now use their own CSS for their journals, the incoperation with your style gives some discoloration in the journal. Is there any way to fix this issue, from my side or yours?

:iconjanvanlysebettens:

We ( the skinners ) are waiting for the dA coders to add a few things so we can incorporate this in our skins..

untill then you'll have to be patient :)

Great job, this is so much nicer than v5. My eyes thank you. :)

A couple issues:

- the font in the journals and the artist's comment is still larger than the other fonts. I don't know if this is intentional or not.

- the moods box seems to be broken - it's empty and it overlaps the comment box. Personally I'd like it gone completely, but fixing it would also do.

You're welcome. :)

I noticed the mood box still misbehaves from time to time, but it's definitely better than it was.

I also noticed the icon for "Profile" is wrong; and the icons for Gallery, Prints, Faves, and Journal are missing. It's the same problem in each of the Seven Deadly Skins.

Hope I'm not nitpicking too much. :P

I wish I could somehow watch a deviation for updates...

<rant>I can live with most of dAv5, but the new placement of the mood box bugs the hell out of me! Shoving them into our faces and sacrificing half the comment box in the process... Less space for writing comments plus it's a hell of a distraction to see them twitching next to the comment box when typing a comment. I feel like they're trying to push users towards using moods instead of writing quality critique :hmm: </rant>

Well, the bottom line is if you include a way to get rid of the mood box that'd be a reason for me to start using your skin! In case you kill the moods, would you notify me about the skin's update, please? :]

if you watch me then this skin will appear in your devwatch if I update it ;)

It used to hide the moddbox by the way..
but that silly box appeared again because of the recent changes..
I'm planning to hide it again tho ;)

dA now changed the mood system - insytead of having it as a drop down menu they are almost forcing us to use them by displaying the menu dirctly next to the comment box.

The problem is that this skin (and all other skins in fact) do not load the mood menu unless the page is reloaded. Any idea on how to fix this? I so love your skin :)

PS: Here is some code I found in the forum:

.moodarea td+td, .moodarea th, table.moods {display:none !important}

I don't know (yet) how to implement it, but maybe it'll make it easier for you to update the skin :]
