You can’t use code in Wattpad bios.

I think people just hit the space bar a lot to get text centered but that requires a lot of trial and error.

Thanks!


#523

#524

Salutations.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any examples on hand but if you skim through this thread, you might see some.


#525

I want to show off my finished (or close to finished) Tumblr theme!

I made it with the help of a step-by-step theme making tutorial.


In which writers try to write their damn book.

#534

#535

I think I used the “Blog Graphic” when I made mine.


#536

#537

hello I think I’m doing background color all wrong, help would be greatly appreciated


#538

Can you show me what you’re trying?


#539

okay, so I’m trying to make it so that the post has an actual background color, I know how to do that if I inserted an image, but I’d like to be able to just code the color in. The html website I’ve been using to teach myself had this:

body style=“background-color:powderblue;” (with brackets of course, but it won’t show up here if I have brackets)

as an example, but when I tried it, it wasn’t working out. Should I use hex codes instead? Or does that type of background color not work for wattpad?

So, coding is a bit weird on this site.

You can only get style codes to work if you write it in this exact way:

<span style="font-size:; display: block;">

and then after the display: block attribute-value pair, you can add in the background-color and other things you want to modify. Even if you’re not modifying the font-size, it still needs to be included because that’s just how the system works here. idfk. the coding loophole is weird asf.

Try that out and let me know if it works. :lumi:

Hex codes work, too.

I used hex codes in the first post of this thread, for example.
