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">
<img width="544" height="30" src="
mAKE GIFS FROM YOUTUBE VIDSI DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THIS AND I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO AND NOW I KNOW SO HERE'S THE SCOOP FOR THOSE WHO MAY BE INTERESTEDMore Like This
If you put "gif" infront of "youtube" in a video URL, you'll be taken to a webpage where you have the video playing. You pause where you want the gif to start, then select the number of seconds you want it to be from that point.
Now, when I tried this, the gif was a bit too long at the start and end of what I wanted it to be. Here's what I did if you want to get this far into it;
1.) Go here; http://ezgif.com/split
2.) Upload your gif
3.) Once it loads, click "split it!"
4.) The frames will all show up. Download the frames as a zip to a place you can easily find it.
5.) Go to where you saved it, extract all the files (frames) to a place you can easily find it again.
6.) WHAT I DID was go to gifmaker.me. This website only allows up to 30 frames. If there's more than that, I can't really help you. Maybe there's another website you can go to.&
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.

How to: Modifying the HeaderFor this tutorial series I am explaining different elements you can create or modify with the help of CSS. The level of experience that is needed to be able to understand the tutorials can differ and will be in no order.More Like This
Everything explained is based on the gruze-structure of journals. If you are still using the old structure or have a journal installed that used it, things won’t work the same way like explained below.
For simple skins the old structure is fine, but the more features you add, the more I would recommend using the gruze-structure. You can look up the differences here: http://ginkgografix.deviantart.com/art/Old-vs-Gruze-Journals-112772369
This time I will explain you, how to modify the header section of a journal. I will try to cover everything important, but if there are still things you want to know more about, just let me know and I will try to add it here.
Nothing what I will explain here will affect the actual content area and it will always refer to the defaul
