Site Info: New Owner, New Gallery, New Layout

Dear Johnny admirers,

I’m happy to announce that I’m the new owner of There’s not much you need to know about me, but let me introduce myself shortly. My name’s Debby and I’m a student at the age of 21. It’s a pity to tell you that the founder and former owner of this website, Martina, has decided to give up the site and let it be run by someone else. I feel honored to be the one running the site!

However, I’ve made a few changes to the website already, as you may have noticed. I’ve been running fansites for a couple of years now and my way of running and updating those sites is a little different to how Martina used to run JDorg.

First of all, the site didn’t only get a new owner, it also comes with a new look. I’m a huge fan of modern but simple layouts and therefore decided to upload one on JDorg. Please note: since Martina’s former layout was a lot more complex and quite different, a few pages and links might need some improvement and are still under construction, e.g. the tattoos page. I will work on fitting it into the new layout as soon as Martina’s got time to help me.

Another change is the new gallery system. The site now uses Coppermine photo gallery to upload and portray images of Johnny. With the help of Martina, we managed to move all 92,000 images to the new photo gallery of Again, there are some improvements to be made. It’s a little chaotic still. Some albums are listed in the wrong categories etc. However, I decided to put the gallery online already so you can browse through the images.

All in all, I’m extremely glad to be able to provide you with the latest Johnny news and media and communicate with as many Johnny admirers as possible. If there are questions or notes, do not hesitate to contact me. I’m happy about any help I get!

New (responsive) Layout

It is not 100% finished yet, but I decided to publish the new theme I worked on for the last months for everyone –
a new theme working also for mobile devices.

I hope, you like our new style!

New Layout feat. My Valentine

Because I really admire Johnny’s performance in Paul Mc Cartney’s music video “My Valentine”, I decided to create a new look (one more theme) for If you haven’t set it automatically, click here to try it out:

If you do not like it…or like one of the older themes better (I know, this new one is dark and grey and black and not very colorful in color, but just in the gestures right as the video), feel free to chose another theme from the very bottom anytime  you like.

New comment / gallery box

the last days I made some changes to the box that appears when clicking the comments or the images in the galleries. It has now an – in my opinion – nicer look and – very important – a Download Full Size image link at the bottom right. Took me some days to find out how to manipulate it but there you go!
Try it out 🙂

Meanwhile, Ginny and Brian added some more 2005 articles.

New Layout

The recent Rum Diary Press Junket pics impressed me so much that I decided to create a new layout out of one of those pics. I could not resist these eyes and wanted them “as they are” looking out to all of us through this box in the middle, any brushes just wrapped around.

Go, check it out yourself:


If you find any mistakes anywhere, please tell me! Any opinions very welcome in the comments. 

On Stranger Tides Layout

Thanks to Carina, who created this incredibly beautiful and well made header, we could create a new style featuring Captain Jack Sparrow on the Stranger Tides promo pics –

Thank you so much, Carina, you’re truly genius.

Which layout keep? Which drop?

As the only Johnny Depp site online, we allow the visitor to chose the preferred layout. We are going to switch to another news script (which is the cause for the lack of site updates in the past) soon and I need to drop some of the skins, while I want to keep only few of them, but with new skins to come instead (including a cool Mad Hatter layout). Which ones you will miss? Which ones to drop?

Happy Easter!

For some time I seem to have lost my creativity, and I had no motivation (and time) to do anything for Christmas nor the 5th anniversary nor the 3 Mio. visitors. But the spring with the wonderful weather and the green and the flowers coming through inspired me enough to make you all a new layout as a little Easter surprise:

Skin 9

I hope, you like it 🙂 if not, you can still choose one of the other 8 skins :-p

Arrrrrrr!! New Jack Sparrow Skin! Arrrrrrr!!!

Ahoy mates! Today, September 19th, be International Talk Like A Pirate Day. T’ celebrate that, I made a new Jack Sparrow Skin for – or t’ be honest, I made it first and then realized, it was “Talk Like a Pirate Day” when I would have it completed. So, enjoy Talk Like a Pirate Day and surprise everybody by talkin’ like a pirate. Now try out t’ newest skin o’ the best character introduction in a movie ever:

Skin 8

a new layout again

I planned to add this layout on February 8th, our 4th anniversary, but I could not finish it in time. Now it is finished, and I’d like to add it still in celebration of the 4th birthday of the site. Enjoy!
