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
