EDIT - This tutorial is a little outdated since it was created before the "Share buttons" existed, but it still works. I'll update it with newer images when I have time.I made this mostly for the directions in
To find thumb codes now:
1. Go to deviation
2. Find the "Share buttons" to the right that have a Note, Facebook, Tumblr, & Twitter, then click the down arrow
3. Copy the code under "Thumb"
dA Guide: Text Formatting
Please PAY ATTENTION to where
the codes WILL and WILL NOT work!
(Certain codes won't work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.) :'D
This is just a simple html guide to formatting text on dA (and other sites). My goal was to compile html info into a simple, easy to understand guide for quick reference. :)
(Please let me know if the codes don't work because sometimes they change when dA updates their site.)
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 in mind that when you type html tags, the effects won't be visible until you hit "Preview" on your comment, journal, etc. I only made them visible here for the purpose of demonstration.)
