Blogging Shortcuts - DIST's Cheat Sheet
Updated August 27, 2010This list of shortcuts are those that are frequently used by bloggers. If you are new to blogging, it is recommended that you first review the tutorial How to Create a LJW Blog - A Beginner's Guide.
All shortcuts are simply "cut, paste, fill in the blank." Unless otherwise noted: copy all red HTML code; that means from, and including, the first "less than sign" (<) to, and including, the last "greater than sign" (>). Replace any text inclusive of the words, "Paste [your content] here" with your desired text, picture, or code. Do not eliminate any quote marks, or other code characters.
Largest Heading<h1>Paste your largest heading here</h1>
Still Quite Large<h2>Paste your large heading here</h2>
This Is A Common Size<h3>Paste your common heading here</h3>
A Little Smaller Heading<h4>Paste your smaller heading here</h4>
A Normal Size Heading<h5>Paste your normal heading here</h5>
A Small Heading<h6>Paste your smallest heading here</h6>
The paragraph command places an empty line between paragraphs.Line breaks, force a new line to start. For example, This is
a forced line break. <br /> The paragraph and forced break can be used to place blank spaces between objects, pictures, and text.
Another type of break, one that is quite visible and provides a distinct separation of content, is the horizontal line. <hr />
Poetry presents a challenge when writing a blog or using HTML code. There are many ways to work with the spacing. Here is one way:
Poetry requires different spaces
Other times double
Either way is a lot of trouble
To make the jingle
You have to think bilingual
And keep smiley faces
Here is what the above poem looks like "behind the scenes."

<b>Paste bold text here</b> This text is big
<big>Paste big text here</big> This text is italic
<i>Paste italicized text here</i> This text is underlined
<u>Paste underlined text here</u>
<s>Paste strike through text here</s>
<center>paste picture or text here</center> This is an example.<a href="Paste URL here">Paste Visible Words Here</a> This link will open a new tab or window on the user's browser. The original tab, your blog, will remain open. Visit W3Schools!<a href="Paste URL here" target="_blank">Paste title here</a> This last link is a "clickable" picture. This allows a user to click an embedded picture or object and open a new window to a referenced link.
<a href="Paste URL Destination Here"target="_blank"><img src="Paste URL of Picture Here"></a>
So it might look something like this in your content box:
<p /> There is another method to display images as you may have noticed in the links section above. In this case you will be pasting the image location between the quotation marks. However, you must have the actual link location. This can even be a link to another internet source as long as it is the actual location of the image. Image locations can usually be found by right clicking on an image and then choosing view image. <img src="Paste URL of Picture Here"></a> There may be times that the picture needs to be limited in size. Size limits are stated in pixels. Normally, if the width is defined, then the height will adjust to maintain ratio. But, if necessary height may be specified. In the cut and paste below, simply replace 700 with the desired width in pixels. Note: 700 is the approximate width of the blog column. <img src="Paste URL of Picture Here" width="700"></a> or <img src="Paste URL of Picture Here" width="700" height="350"></a> Here is an example of a picture limited to a width of 100 pixels:
