deviantART Sleek Header by Rebel2206 deviantART Sleek Header by Rebel2206

Now updated for v7!

Custom Userstyle for deviantART giving you a slim and sleek look and feel to deviantARTs header.

Update 13th April 2011: Updated the style to fix a number of issues i've been alerted to. This fix will fix the search menu and give it a slightly new look.
More menu when sticking the main menu has been fixed to float just like the main header which prevents the menu from being cut off. Other minor fixes, but all is good!

Update 30th June 2010: Now updated the skin to work with v7 of deviantART. Since the header is already as small as it should be, there was no need to make the header any smaller. So this update just updates the images used to imitate the old style from this skin

Install Instructions

You will need to have Firefox and Stylish to be able to use this skin
Once installed. right click the stylish icon in your firefox tray and select Write New Style > Blank Style

Then copy All the text from [link]

Now only one link is needed because ads are no longer wrapped in the header!

Name the file and Save!

Enjoy :peace:

Pre-V7 Update

Now fixed for non-subscribed Members
Update 24th Oct 09: Fixed a few image bugs, and updated the log to be brighter to stand out more with suggestion from $bionikdesign

Designed to be smaller, allowing you to view more, scroll less
You will notice the logo has changed also allowing me to squeeze more space into the style

I have two issues with this:

1. It breaks my searchbar in the header.
2. When i click the "more" button it makes the menu go up so i can't see it.

I'll have a look at it right now... it's been long over due an update. also which "More" button are you talking about because i've tried to recreate the problem and can't :hmm:
Katara-Alchemist Apr 12, 2011  Student General Artist
when you stick the menu, on the right side there's a button that says "more"

Wait, found another little issue.

Badges now float above the bar as you scroll, rather then going underneath it.

minor glitch, not gonna include it in the update but to fix
open up the style and add

div.gruz-badgeholder {
z-index: 124 !important;

to the bottom :)
