I'm looking to commission someone for some custom journal skins for a group. Here is the link to the info ^_^…

Is this group now dead, too? cause my submissions expired already twice.

how do you put the skin on your page?
CherieNoir Dec 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You click the install button to the right when you're viewing a skin.
Hello, I'm looking for someone to assist me with a skin I'm making, I've most of the stuff I want done, but there are a few spots I'm not sure how to progress. I'd be willing to give points if you are able to remedy my situation. In case you're wondering what issues I'm in need of assistance with:

:bulletred: I want to make the journal automatically adjust if/when the 'Mood', 'Playing', 'Eating', etc sections are filled out (I can't seem to get it to work).

:bulletblue: I'd like a border going around the entire journal (I suppose I could just upload a background that has the border already in it and make it my background?)

Thanks for any assistance with this.

I have a journal skin design that i've managed to make work on a normal browser, can be found here:…

But when i've tried to make it into a journal skin on dA, the images don't match up and some are moved etc. I've tried to fix it myself and i keep coming across these pictures of boxes with loads of code in and honestly, it means absolutely nothing to me. I'd be grateful for some help.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure I understand what you mean. 

You made a skin outside of DA and now the code doesn't work within DA? 

Yep, that's what happened but it's okay now because someone already helped me fix it. 
I was wondering if something like this skin ( Solar Phoenix Journal Skin ) would be acceptable in your group? I was planning on making a handful like this, all with live-views; but I don't know if they would be acceptable or not. I figured I would ask before joining. Thank you for your precious time and I look forward to hearing from you!
