Basic HTML Formatting GuideIntroductionMore Like This
HTML is a markup language used to create web pages. It primarily consists of content placed between named tags that define the layout or style of that content.
Is it just me or does trying to explain HTML and what it does always seem to make it sound more complicated than it actually is? Very simply, HTML is the building blocks of the web. With it you can create a web page right from the foundations of the layout to the finishing touches of style. Don't get me wrong, it is a fairly involved topic but it really is quite simple to pick up the basics.
What I'll be helping you with here is the formatting aspect of HTML. These are the things that add colour to your page and make your font fancy.
Below you will find a number of examples of HTML formatting that you can use to style your own web pages, dA profiles and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also writ
Using HTML on deviantARTMore Like This
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Basic HTML/CSS guide: what TAGS areWelcome in this simple guide!More Like This
I'll try to exaplain you the basic informations about coding, expecially to help you to personalize your dA experience. In fact, if you need to personalize your dA, you can use simple tags to give different characteristics to your page.
First of all, remind that sites are organized in 3 levels: HTML, CSS and DATABASE. We'll look only for the first two, because for simple coding, expecially in dA, database isn't useful (you need it only for big programming).
Please, read carefully... if you never experienced the codes before, you probably will need to read more times this document (it's normal, so don't worry).
Da reads my codes and display them, so I'll insert ♥ to permit you to read the codes. Remind that ♥ must be deleted if you want the code to run.
Every webpage is programmed using "tag (s)", attributes that say the characteristics of the page.
Tags are important for both
Did you know? - Individual disabling of MentionsIndividual disabling of MentionsMore Like This
While it is nice to know when and where people use your deviations, it can be troublesome for some deviations like emotes, profile decorations or other kind of popular ones.
You might not want to disable mentions in general, but exclude certain deviations for it.
In that case wait until one of such deviations pops up as a mention in your message center.
At the right side (next to the x-button) you have that little arrow icon. Click on that and you will end up with this.
If you click on it to proceed, you will have to confirm this change, to make sure you didn't click on it by accident...
... and from now on you won't get notified for this deviation anymore.
You are able to disable mentions for single deviations, but you are not able to redo it individually. In that case it is 'all or nothing'.
Right now it is
