Visual Suggestion -- Journal Previews by GillianIvy Visual Suggestion -- Journal Previews by GillianIvy
As a user who makes A LOT of journal skins which are not installable, I have a wall of "Preview Unavailable" journals in my journal sidebar. when just going to write a personal journal, it becomes a hassle to find the one I'm looking for.

I would love to be able to upload a thumbnail preview image just so I can identify the skins I want to use and which ones I might want to clear out.

Hey, did you ever find out how to add thumbnails to journal skin previews?

Only way I know is via installables.  I hope someone read my suggestion ;D  My journal skin selection has sooooo many in there.  I am afraid to remove any if it is something I have a live preview up of...  And then things I started and never finished.  :|

For some strange reason, I missed this in my message center. :O_o:

Anyway, I would love this so much. I also have a wall of "Preview Unavailable" journals in my sidebar. :faint:

This is why i always keep my list down to three. Two for ecssited and my personal ones. Others i might have to install will be deleted as soon as i don't need them anymore.

But yes, this would be so extremely helpful. Would be nice if we would get the chance to add a preview one day :eager:

I've found if I delete things it breaks my live views :O

Hm, no idea. Haven't experienced that yet. But could be that i always used the original code without installing (when using my own) and i don't keep those of other people to check that.

Will make test with one of my test journals to see what happens.

I need to just go through carefully when I have the time and clear out all my commission ones.

I just installed one of your skins, added it to an old journal and removed the skin from my list. It's still applied to the journal itself. :o

I think it may be because I hadn't had the installed version on them or something. I think I have broken live views somewhere. Don't worry about it. I'll go through and clear out my journal sidebar eventually....

I like saving if I'm working on it or if its a particular favorite

I have a boat load! I mean, even when you use a preinstalled skin, you have to edit your links & all that jaz. When you save it, there is no longer a preview. It sux! I have tons of them

Maybe it needs an option to update or keep the thumbnail with a (modified by) note under it.

That would be good too, just as long as we don't have to wade through hundreds of green no preview skins to find the one we want to use LOL
