Beta Test: Report Modal And Notifications

CEA Update : Defining pornography in Literature
It has been long assumed that the literature guidelines could be inferred from the guidelines governing image submissions, however actual feedback from the gallery Directors who interact with the literature community has indicated that this assumption is incorrect and that many members willfully feign confusion over the rules in order to submit clearly pornographic content. To this end we will attempt to first clarify the perceived differences between allowed erotic literature and the type of literature which should be deemed pornographic and therefore prohibited. I would like to specifically point out that the explanations and guidelines th

So you want to browse the Wallpaper Gallery by specific resolution to match the size of desktop but can't find a way to do it? Well, search no longer! (wow, first paragraph and already I'm punning...)

Here is a neat tip on how to get the most out of the wallpaper gallery by using the dA search feature to single out specific resolutions.

Firstly, you need to select the Customization > Wallpaper gallery in the Browse feature.

Next, you can select a specific section of the gallery if you want, for instance Customization > Wallpaper > Fantasy

In my example I have also selected the "Popular" and "All Time" sections, but you can browse by day, week, month, popular, newest... the possibilities are endless.

Now all you need to do is to enter the resolution you wish to filter by in the Search box at the right of the page like this:

res search by zilla774

This is the filter search for the page (not the main search at the top of the page which will search all of dA).

Simply place the resolution with no spaces, as number x number ie 800x600 or 1024x768 etc, and then click the 'search' button and the page will show the filtering like this:

res full by zilla774

Then you just have to find a wallpaper you like. Unfortunately this is not something I can help with and from this point on I'm afraid you are on your own... :giggle:

Happy searching!

z.

(many thanks to AreteEirene for pointing this tip out to me)

There doesn't appear to be the "search within results" anymore. How can I do this now?

Okay, I have a question for you.

How would I be able to search my own :gallery:for resolution size?

So... Would searching for 1680x1050 in:customization/wallpaper/ work, or would that only search within deviations' tags?

Hmm i am wondering, does the search function also work, if the wallpapers are zipped and only a preview image is displayed?
Or does the search function consider the artists comments etc. about the available resolutions?

This was a feature until the change to Version 5. I wish they would bring the more robust searching features and customization back :(

Am I the only one that remembers that this was an actual feature once?

You could browse by: wallpaper sized: resolution in drop-downs... but that was 3 years ago.

Good to have this, pardon my mini-nag.

kudos to you!

Yay! Now I don't have to write the article ;)

I can add, though, that you can use the main search bar by using the in: function, but you have to know the exact name of the category you want to search. It's helpful, though, if you always browse the same gallery over and over.

You can search any gallery this way, too! Now if we could only browse by creative common license :fingerscrossed:
