Hello friends,

Most of us see many users performing actions like quoting a sentence, using special formatting or posting an image in their posts etc. quite often but are unaware how to do so.
Thus, I thought of sharing some of these basic actions with everyone so that even others can make use of it and enjoy.

Actually it is called HTML (HyperText Mark-up Language).
Learn more about HTML

Without going into any technical details, I would just say that HTML are some useful ‘word codes/commands’ that makes our text/post appear the way we want it.

I am posting here only few common HTML codes.

To use a code, just copy-paste it.



  1. Make a text bold

    <b>Your text</b> OR * Your text* (without space)

    Will appear as: Your Text




  2. Text in italics

    <i>Your text</i> OR _ Your text_ (without space)

    Will appear as: Your Text




  3. Underlined Text

    <ins>Your Text</ins> OR + Your text+ (without space)

    Will appear as: Your Text




  4. Striked out Text

    <del>Your Text</del> OR – Your text- (without space)

    Will appear as: Your Text




  5. Text as Superscript

    <sup>Your Text</sup> OR ^ Your Text^(without space)

    Will appear as: Superscript Your Text




  6. Text as Subscript

    <sub>Your Text</sub> OR ~ Your Text~(without space)

    Will appear as: Subscript Your Text




  7. Make a text Big

    <bigYout Text</big>

    Will appear as: Your Text




  8. Make a text Small

    <small>Yout Text</small>

    Will appear as: Your Text




  9. Text as Heading/Header

    This can be divided into :


    • <h1>Your Text</h1>

      Will appear as:

      Your Text

    • <h2>Your Text</h2>

      Will appear as:

      Your Text


    • <h3>Your Text</h3>

      Will appear as:

      Your Text


    • <h4>Your Text</h4>

      Will appear as:

      Your Text


    • <h5>Your Text</h5>

      Will appear as:
      Your Text
    • <h6>Your Text</h6>

      Will appear as:
      Your Text




  10. Abbreviating a text/Hidden text

    • Single word

      Your TEXT(Full form of text or Text you want to hide)

      Will appear as: Your TEXT

      [Move your cursor over the last word ‘TEXT’ (underlined in dots) to view the full form/hidden text. Note that this word should be in caps]

    • Single/Multiple words

      <abbr title=“Full form of text/Text you want to hide”>Your Text</abbr>
      OR
      <acronym title=“Full form of text/Text you want to hide”>Your Text</acronym>

      Will appear as: Your Text

      [Move your cursor over the text (complete text is underlined in dots) to view the full form/hidden text.]



  11. Quoting a text

    <blockquote>Your Text</blockquote> OR bq. Your Text

    Will appear as:

    Your Text



  12. Inserting a Horizontal rule (line)

    <hr/> OR <hr />

    Will appear as:




  13. Inserting a link in text

    <a href=“url of the webpage/your link”>Your Text</a>

    Will appear as: Your Text

    [It will be a clickable text redirecting to the url/link used. I have used url: http://wwwdesidim...m/]


  14. Inserting an image

    <img src=“url/link of the image”></img> OR Use the HTML code already provided by image hosting site

    Will appear as: The actual image

    The image needs to be on net. If not, you can upload it on any free image hosting site. I use tinypic.com


    Demo:
    For example, the image link of my profile pic is http://cdn0.desidime.com/avatars/2374/large/dm....
    Just posting the link will not display the image. Now, I put this link in the above code

    <img src=“http://cdn0.desidime.com/avatars/2374/large/dm....>

    Will appear as:

    http://cdn0.desidime.com/avatars/2374/large/dm.png?1313852330


  15. Inserting Numbering/Bullets

    # Your Text
    # Your Text
    # Your Text
    ## Your Text
    ## Your Text

    OR

    * Your Text
    * Your Text
    * Your Text

    ** Your Text

    ** Your Text (without line gap)


    Will appear as:

    1. Your Text
    2. Your Text
    3. Your Text
      1. Your Text
      2. Your Text

    OR

  • Your Text
  • Your Text
  • Your Text
    • Your Text
    • Your Text

Sorry for the error bro, I’ll request admin to update.

Actually for using the shortcut (brackets) method, the word associated with the text should be in capitals.


For example:

Thanks a LOT(Thanks a lot for this HTML Tutorial)

Will appear as: Thanks a LOT
