boundary posted a userscript HERE to mintyapple for replacing all the old mini-icons all over the LJ website with prettier stuff (at least for firefox and opera users XD)
I'd forgotten about ljskins and customizing lj styles, but I pulled out my old CSS I'd been working on a year ago and played around with it for a couple of hours. While pretty much all icons will be replaced, I'm more focussed on changing the style. Here's what I got so far for the navigation:
My skin at the moment:
I'm not sure if the navbar menu should be black or greyish or an actual color >_> I just wanted it to be very minimalist in style so the focus could be on reading content.
Here's the before and after for the comments area - I still need to replace icons and a gazillion things but :)
Please note, that these customizations would work on all the default LJ pages with Horizon (profile page, homepage, default comment pages etc.).
Any opinions/preferences would be very much appreciated since I'm still a bit iffy on the design elements and font sizing/spacing. Basically, what would you prefer to see when it comes to navigation and comments?
Edit: Oh and if the skin came in multiple colorschemes - what colors would you personally want to use?
