The New Way to Write Journals

Thu Jun 13, 2013, 4:46 PM


Writing a Journal is easier than ever with the new Write a Journal Entry page. Add formatting, artwork, files, Journal Skins, and emoticons to your Journal for a more dynamic journal creation experience!

What's New

  • Rich-text formatting is supported! You can use familiar keyboard shortcuts or Sta.sh Writer's rich-text toolbar for a simple, straightforward experience when formatting your text.
    • For deviants who prefer to use HTML, you can still type your HTML as usual, or you can turn off the rich-text by switching to HTML Mode from the Edit menu!
  • Make your Journal more engaging without having to work harder! Use Sta.sh Writer's sidebar to easily add deviations and files from your Sta.sh into your Journal!
    • Premium Members can also improve their Journal by adding a custom Journal Skin using the Style section of the sidebar.
  • Use the Emoticons tab of the sidebar to explore and add a combination of official and community-created emoticons to your Journal!
  • Save an unfinished draft of your Journal to your Sta.sh or open an unfinished Journal draft from the File menu in the toolbar!
  • Create, customize, and submit your Journal, all from one page, all in one step.

Try it out! Visit the Write a Journal Entry page!

wreckling, sir/miss, if thou have made this, oh God.
The page is empty in all the mobile browsers I have... in Windows it goes slow like hell. I highly recommend thee to either go back to the old, non-WYSIWYG, full-HTML editor; or to add that option in the User Settings menu. Otherwise, I will not be able to submit any Journal, while I want to submit one due to Gustavo Cerati’s death.
Fare thee well.

Sorry , I don't like this. It's harder

Well that's my opinion.

Hi there. :)
I just figured out a question I didn't ever think of on my other two accounts (very stupid of me XD)-how do you add a description to the journal? :?

wreckling Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014   Writer
Hi there! To add a description to a Journal, you have to write it in Sta.sh Writer, and then submit it to deviantART from the regular Submit page. Once you are on the Submit page, you can add or edit the description. Hope that helps! :)

i can't seem to figure this out at all, this overhaul honestly feels to have broken something that was working just fine. There's a saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and now we see why. I have tried everything i can think of to even get something up to type all i get is the annoying stash search bar and tool bar and a grey screen. So i have to thank whoever had the brilliant idea of using a system but not giving a beginner tutorial for it. Thank you so much DeviantArt for destroying the easiest way to alert people of coming changes to your page. If and that's big if, someone actually knows how to use the bloody thing send me a note please or a link to a tutorial. I mean this is about as bad as the google+ youtube comment merger a few months back.

Hi there! Can you take a screenshot of what the page looks like for you and send it to me? It's loading fine for me over here, so I'd like to see what it looks like for you, to see if we can get things running smoothly on your end. :)

I actually managed to figure it out. To all the google chrome users if you have extensions your journal won't load. Turn them off in order to get it working again.

Yeah this new journal thing is bullshit, It's be easier writing it on a paper and uploading it to my deviations. You guys should really ask before changing so much shit, it's confusing.

It's fucked up how DA just "updates" stuff but never ASKS us if we want to update it. Do we have options to choose the old over the new? Do we get to test it out for the day and see which one we like better? No. Were expected to "roll with it". And frankly, DA, I'm getting really, REALLY tired of your shit.

DA admins, PLEASE GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER. Where's OUR choices in the matter? Or what, are you going to make that Premium Membership exclusive too?

I'm sorry, but I thought the point of journals was to write. I don't know about anyone else but I can't do that with these new journals. Every time I click write new journal it opens the 'Write new journal' page but there is nowhere to type. It looks like the picture above but without the white area where you can type. It's just the grey background.

The actual part about writing the journal won't even show up. The editing tools and the skin options do, but no title box or text box for the actual journal.

I absolutely hate this! It messes up my html coding horribly, because when I go back to edit my journal it doesn't show the codes, just what they do, and confuses me. If I switch to the HTML mode, it shows a bunch of stuff that I didn't put in there. PLEASE make this at least optional. It makes everything more difficult for me, instead of easier and 'more dynamic'. I don't know who said this was a good idea, because it really is not. To be quite frank, it sucks ass.

i have that problem too and its confusing as fuck i cant for my life figure out what im doing and it doesnt make sense! The text in the rich text editor shows up hlaf-coded and half rich-texty. whenever i edit something i have no idea what the outcome is gonna be and sometimes it just seems too add rows of code that just results in like moving the textrows to the left and like two bolded showing up in the finished journal that i had no idea was there. also the text size options are????? what????? how do you get mor variety????

Ok. Is there a way to turn off your thumbnail number from turning into the deviations, because this is really obnoxious seeing you thumbnails, when trying to add new thumbs to an old journal? BT
