Hey, it's been a while!
A friend of mine mentioned the other day that one function which seems less supported in DW comments than it was in Livejournal is Rich Text commenting. I'd never really used it myself, but I get that making the switch to Dreamwidth might be a problem there for people who are more used to Livejournal in that sense. Also, there are a few html commands in Dreamwidth that are different from those in Livejournal, and I'll cover that too.
As such, the basic point to this tutorial is to provide a quick and dirty guide to HTML for Dreamwidth purposes that should cover most everything you need to do normally. Nothing too fancy here, just straightforward stuff. ( Read more... )
If anyone's got questions, just leave a comment! I know I didn't go into very much, and a lot of this should be fairly common knowledge already, but it might not be for everyone.
Also, if you're interested in any of my other tutorials, I've got a master list here
! So far, I've covered changing the default site style, getting into roleplaying, marking 'new' comments in a post, using LJ juggler or LJ login for managing multiple accounts, as well as getting and claiming your OpenID and uploading icons onto it. (Quick and unrelated note! For people who are using Firefox or Chrome, check SpeedyFox out. It's meant to improve the speed and functionality of your browser. It seems to work okay for me- I haven't noticed a drastic improvement, but it doesn't seem slower or anything, and other people who use it have reported really good boosts in performance, so it might be worth a try.)
