Simple + Clean v.2 CSS by ClaireJones Simple + Clean v.2 CSS by ClaireJones
Simple + Clean v.2 & v.2.5
User Level: Intermediate

Live version for Simple + Clean v.2: [link]
Live version for Simple + Clean v.2.5: [link]

I didn't expect to create any more CSS designs, but there were some elements that bugged me and I just had to figure out how to do them. This version is a more intermediate CSS layout than the original.

Two different versions, as shown in the extremely large preview image, are included in the zip file.

Features:
  • Minimalist design
  • Sidebar (Now in an easier to code format)
  • Gallery Menu Bar
  • Scrollboxes
  • Journal Subhead and/or Journal Description
  • No mood box
  • No Journal Entry Date
  • Zero graphical elements (though they may be added)

I absolutely love this design - in fact I am using it right now but I am having a problem getting the "comments" link on the bottom of the page. Any particular thing I might be doing wrong?

This is amazing! But where's the code to add it to your journal? I just got a subscription and the FAQ told me to find the code.

Thanks so much for this! I'm using the 2.5 version. I am a smidge confused about how to put in the table for Stamps and such. (Sorry, I get confused rather easily when it comes to CSS. -_-)

I love this one! I also love your Modernity ones, but those are too advanced for me. ^^;

Now, I have a question. I can't get my right column at the top....its underneath the whole left column (minus the footer). I did everything the way I should have and I still ended up wrong. >___< Help?

This is wonderful- i'm just customizing it now, and i love it :D i'm just having one problem:
the comments and previous journals links that are normally at the bottom of the journal are now floating up the top between the Basic Header #1 and Links section of your css.. how can i anchor it back down to the bottom?
cheers! :heart:

I've looked through lots and lots of Journal CSS, and a vast majority of them simply have little appeal. Yours however is perfect, it seamlessly integrates into DA's own design.
Exactly what I'm looking for.
Nice work and Thank You for sharing. :heart:

Hello! I'd like to use the 2.5 one for my journal, but I want to alter it a little by adding a trasparent bg picture just beneath the main header. Do you allow alterations and if yes, could you please teach me how to add such a thing? <3

Ha ha. I'm still just starting out. I've only seriously started coding in CSS for about six months now. There's so much I want to learn about web coding and programming. Mostly, I've been coding and recoding websites/dA journals, which has helped my CSS abilities tremendously.

Thats awsome ^^ Your getting really far it seems.
I've been mildly interested in CSS for a long time now, but now DA has custom journals and I want to fix up my own personal art site, Im actually looking into adult classes for web design and such is I can find em. This kind of stuff on DA is good practice though :P
