Centralizer by chaosmuse Centralizer by chaosmuse
Currently Not Functional

Another skin, simply altering deviantART's layout and size. For me, this is a way to step back and get just a bit of the information at a time instead of being bombarded with content.

Sometimes I need it for my eyes. Oh, my old, old eyes.

Intended for 1024*768 resolution or higher. 800*600 version coming soon.


Replaced missing links in header.
Removed Network Admin notice (had hidden the search bar).
Fixed search bar.
Updated preview image to reflect changes.

Excellent, and unique skin. It is so nice to be able to view dA with more readable line lengths, without my needing to go out of the maximised mode.

Anyway, there are a few problems, that you are doubt aware, for those of us with larger screen resolutions (or, more specifically, wider screen resolutions), which cause a lot of things that are centred, to be, well, not centred.
I have cludged together a poor fix to the problem, but, I await your larger screen version.

My smaller screen version is ready to go, but I have no idea what larger resolutions are standard. 1280*1024 is definately one, but others? I have no idea.

There's some arbitrary positioning issues that keep me from making one that works across the board. Eventually, maybe I'll figure something better out.

Well, the height of the resolution doesn't really matter so much as the width of the resolution.

Common screen widths more than 1024 pixels are:
1152,1280,1400,1440,1600,1680,1920 and 2048.

However, obviously, this is far too many to bother making separate style sheets for, the most commonly used display widths out of those would be 1280 pixels and 1600 pixels.

really cool idea and congrats for the dd!

way cool! :)

i really like the look of the main toolbars when they're like that. it's nice.
and the narrower column makes reading things much easier :nod:

one problem though - depending on what resolution we have our desktops, the head deviantART will either be centered or not (i guess 1024x768 is the sweetspot?) I replaced your current center deviantART styles with the following and it works as expected (though you might want to give it some whitespace below, so it doesn't come so close to the message center links.

#deviantART #head h1{text-align:center}

the coolness doesn't end there though - i can stack it ontop of my skins and they work together perfectly. well. almost ;p
(how did i stack it? i use this extension called [Stylish], it's for CSS what greasemonkey is for javascript. it's still buggy, but it's shaping up just fine)

oh. and also. i see my page there! wee :dance:

Thanks for the link. Ohhh, it's sweet. I've had people asking about that recently.

I'm gonna make a version for 800*600 next, then maybe a big honkin' one for those crazy people that like their screens unreadable. :D
