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

A quick guide to embedding of compact video players
The "compact" I mean player that embedded only for music (in case when you don't care about video or don't want it to take too much space in your custom box or journal).
Here's an example:
Default embedded youtube player (<da:embed profile="youtube" id="NWd5x09gWoE">):
[text valign] [text valign]
And compact version (see the code below):
How it works:
<container with overflow:hidden>
<spacer with necessary height>
<video with position:absolute, bottom:0>
<div class="pagination f sitback-container talk-post popup2-clear">

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
