I recently realized that bloggers who know coding can do so much more with their blogs than those bloggers who can’t. With coding, you can customize your blog, add widgets to your sidebar, and stylize graphics without downloading a single piece of that fancy computer software. But coding is hard, and takes a lot of time, effort, and dedication.
To use HTML, you simply paste your HTML code into a text field that recognizes HTML–pasting HTML coding into the “Visual” section of this blog post isn’t going to do anything for me. It’ll simply display my HTML as text that looks pretty much like gibberish. Be sure to insert it in the “Text” section of WordPress.com blog posts, or somewhere else like it.
For example, this is the HTML code to insert an image:
<img src=”url” alt=”some_text“>
The bolded parts are those I’m going to replace.
Here is the actual inserted image using this code (I’m using the Books and Bark logo):
To use a text example, here’s how you would resize text to make it larger:
<h1> insert your title text here </h1>
<h2> insert your title text here </h2>
<h3> insert your title text here </h3>
<h4> insert your title text here </h4>
<h5> insert your title text here </h5>
<h6> insert your title text here </h6>
<p> insert your normal paragraph text here </p>
The header text goes from largest to smallest. Here it is when I actually use the code:
Header 1 (h1)
Header 2 (h2)
Header 3 (h3)
Header 4 (h4)
Header 5 (h5)
Header 6 (h6)
Normal Text (p)
And that’s all there is to it! You can also use HTML, just like that, to insert linked images, image galleries, linked text, normal text, headers, and more.
