CSS Tricks: Background ImagesToday's CSS Trick will be about using background images in Journal Skins.More Like This
There are three types of images that are mostly used in journals skins: big background images, seamlessly repeatable patterns and icon/logo-like images.
Images can be used for all elements of a journal: in the header, footer, behind text, next to text etc.. Any journal element has the ability to contain an image
I cannot stress enough that the main objective of a journal is making written content enjoyable to read. It is all about readability and making it as easy for the reader as possible. Very often I come across pretty journal skins, that have a complete lack of readability. In one of my previous CSS Tricks I already mentioned the dangers of text lengths and how to limit the .text width to improve readability.
Problems with using images:
Despite being big an images turns out to be too small for a journalAn image does not repeat seamlesslyText becomes non-re
dA CSS ChangesdA has changed the allowed CSS properties slightly, and I (electricjonny) wanted to write about them here so that people can understand what they are and how to use them.More Like This
Not everything I'm writing about is new, but I wanted to go over some things in a bit more detail so people can understand how it's used. Below you can see some links that will jump down to the specific area talking about them (unless you superbrowsed over to this journal (with the #/d type link). In which case, you're out of luck, I think. Click the title here to load this page normally).

dA Guide: Text FormattingMore Like This
Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work! (Certain codes do not work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.) :'D
Try NOT to copy/paste the codes, manually type them out yourself. (Copy/paste messes up some of the codes lately thanks to dA). :C
This is just a simple html guide to formatting text on dA (and other sites as well). My goal was just to compile some html info into a simple, easy to understand guide for quick reference. :) Please let me know if the codes don't show up because sometimes they disappear when dA updates certain things.
This guide goes a little above and beyond dA's FAQ entry (although I purposely left out anything to do with links, because they don't work on literature submissions). I also provided working examples, which might make the codes a little easier to understand. (Keep
HTML Text Codes, Tips and Tricks for dAAbout a year ago I posted a news article called "Making Your Comments Look Nice". Since then I have found out many other codes that I think would be helpful to share with other deviants who may not know them, or are just looking for some new codes to spiff up their journals and comments! However, I can't say I have ALL of the codes available on deviantART. I just have posted the ones I have heard of. If you have any new ones not listed here, feel free to comment with them.More Like This
You can also check out the deviantART FAQ, which has info on these codes as well: :faq104:
To start things off, let's learn how to make these HTML codes work (:
In order to make a code work, you must use this format:
For example, if I put b into the format I showed you, it will come out as .
This will then allow me to type in bold font!
If you only want to put a code onto ONE word, you would have to do this: My name is Bob, nice to meet you.
