THIS VERSION OF THE THEME DOESN'T WORK WITH THE CURRENT VERSION OF DEVIANTART. Currently I don't have time to make an update but will work on it as soon as possible
NEW IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE CODE
Moved the dev goes mac
css file to another location . . . The old link is still working
This is my second theme for deviantART. I called it dev goes mac
because it's based on the MacOS X theme. I started to work on this theme back in May, but after I saw that this will take a long time, I stoped working on it. A couple of weeks ago I decided to work around the theme. It was a slow progress and I had a lot of problems. Wehn I fixed a problem I did another one, so in the end I just did fixes for fixes. I was very mad so I said tomyself, "Let's start all over again". So I did, this week. I could say that this is the second version of the theme, a more stable, if you want so
O.K. some of you'll say. "Heeeeeeey, I can't see this or that in any of the MacOS themes". Well if you find something that will make you say that, take those things as my "artistic free will". I know this is not 100% MacOS theme, but it's based on it. I know that some things are not working, I tried to make them work, believe me, but I can't figure out why they won't, but those are some small things, nothing important. Also some sites are not styled yet, like se services site, the subscription site and such things.
If using fixed buttons like in this theme it's such a thing, you can create only one for one browser setting. What I'm talking about is the font size. The font settings MUST BE NORMAL
, if this isn't set this way you'll have problems with the skin. SO before you go on using this skin check your settings.
FIREFOX MUST HAVE THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS
Go to Tools
-> Fonts & Colors
Here you need to have the following settings
Proportional: Serif Size (pixels): 16
Serif: Times New Roman
Monospace: Courier New Size (pixels): 13
OK -> OK
To be sure that the fonts aren't magnified go to View
-> Text size
or just hit Ctrl + 0
Now everything should work
HOW TO USE IT
( recommended ):
- Go to `bluespeed9
and get his deviantSkin
extension for Firefox and install it ( after installation restart Firefox )
- Now you can see a small "S"
in the right bottom corner of Firefox. Right click on that icon in the Firefox Statusbar and choose "Skin Manager"
- In the opened window click on the "Add Skin"
button. Another window will open.
- Now past the URL
listed below and hit O.K. . deviantSkin will download the CSS file needed.
- Now choose the theme name from the list, which is in this case "dev_goes_mac"
and hit the "Apply Skin"
- Restart Firefox, come to deviantART and enjoy the theme.
( additional way ):
- Get the chromEdit
extension for Firefox and install it ( after installation restart Firefox )
- Go to "Tools"
-> "Edit User Files"
and add the following line
- Click on "Save"
, close the window and restart Firefox
( Opera 8.0 ):
- Open Opera and past the following link into tha address bar http://dgm.withaldes.com/dev_goes_mac.css
- Save this CSS file somewhere on your computers hard drive
- Now go to "Tools"
- Go to the "Advanced"
tab and choose "Content"
from the list on the left of the window
- Now click on the "Style Option"
- Check all fields listed under "User mode"
- Default mode set to "User mode"
- Click on the "Choose"
button and search for the file you just saved a few steps earlier. Klick on the file called "dev_goes_mac.css"
and click on "open."
- Hit O.K. and again hit O.K. Now the colors should change and the images should start downloading.
Keep in mind that this style is ment for Firefox browsers and not Opera, therefore problems are possible.
This theme supports the following GreasyMonkey scripts
More to come in the future
Some buttons seem to be buggy.
Pageview site has no background: The "Notes" site and the "Pageview" site use the same class and removing it for one site will remove it for the other aswell. The effect I want to have on certain sites is not to have a background ( color or picture ) and this is the intention for the Notes site. Since it's a more frequent used part of deviantART than the "Pageview" site, I'll leave it this way.
The "Notes" site is correct and the "Pageview" site wrong.
Features : it's not possible to add a top border to the deviation list. This would break some other sites since the class is shared
Journal ( Update Journal / Add a New Journal Entry ) site has a border bug but only the subscribers and beta testers site. Teh right border of the left column ( Add a New Journal Entry ) is jumping to the left and right. Once it's placed fine and then again not. I guess this is a deviantART problem since this occures if only adding the border to the original theme
User forum sites : The information on the right or left seem to be broken, they move down to the site. This happens on my browser with the default skin, too.
Artist's Comments : With the default theme, If a deviation is watched in preview mode then ther eis no border on the right of the deviation details box ( Submitted: Category: , , , ). If the deviation is watched watched in fullview there is a border. I placed a border to fix this problem, but now on fullview there is double border.
deviantWATCH : MEMBERS site; the Select/Deselect All and Mark selected as Read buttons are 2px to high, or the list beacon is 2px too low. I don't what this is. This might be a problem I can fix
Community Messages : The Remove all button is misplaced. It's impossible to place it correctly for every part of that site ( Hot topics, Mics, Comments, . . . ). This has to do with deviantART. Also the headers have different bottom borders. There is a 1px difference between the Community Messages of members and subscribers. Fixing one will break the other. Also some borders might be missing. This is a deviantART problem.
Blog : Things may look creepy beacuse content elements ( like header )are taken from other parts of deviantART ( from places where they look fine )
Browse in "List" mode : don't know how to change the background color of the "Deviation" and "Submited" text
previous and next button : right from the Next button there is a 2px problem, 1px 2xtra backround and 1px extra problem, this is in journals, on some submission pages and some pages where previous and next buttons are needed . . .
User store : The Print and Other products button seem to have a different tabbar, will fix this broblem if it's possible
Browse button : The Welcome and Today buttons won't work if user on Welcome, Today, Features and Blog site
Browse button : The Welcome,Today and Features button in the user favourites are not placed well. This can't be done since the position setting is shared with the buttons on the Note site.
Submit button : Submit button turns blue if using deviousToolbar
For problems not listed above send me a Note
THE FOLLOWING THINGS ARE NO BUGS
Featured Deviation : The title of the feauted deviation on a user site is not visible. This is not a but, this is how it has to be
User bar : The Browse and Shop buttons are blue in normal state and silver on hover state. This is how it has to be
GalleryStats : Timeline section no color changes are done
Gallery information page : Spaces between the news headlines
deviantWATCH : SUBSCRIBERS / BETA TESTERS; If Next and Previous button showed there is a 2px border between them. This has to be this way since the borders are needed if only one of those buttons is showed
Browsing deviantART or user galleries : The next and previous buttons have no top blue border on mouse over. This option loos better than to have a double border above those buttons. I had to choose between no blu hover border or a present 2px border. This solution is the best looking ( to this time )
Removes the beacon from the users Featured Deviation, only the image is visible
THINGS TO DO
