If you find yourself in the same boat as me, publishing blogs, managing websites, and more then there are some certain HTML Codes that will be helpful.
There are times when you need to perform simple tasks using codes. For example, you may want to align a text or place Adsense codes and do other minor stuff on your blog. You don’t have to always beg people for help. You can do it yourself!
What is HTML?
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It contains markup tags used to describe, classify, and structure elements in an email/webpage. Browsers will read the coding and will show what we see. HTML is a Language used to write web pages.
Everything you see on your computer or phone browser is created using HTML. All websites on the web are made using this language.
Tim Berners-Lee is the father of HTML. he is called the inventor of the web (www). Many call Tim Berners Lee the father of the Internet.
The World Wide Web (WWW) is the most important thing on the Internet. Without it, it is very hard to connect to each other. People could not do online business in the past because there was no Internet.
Another important stuff is the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP). It defines how messages are transmitted and formatted on the Web. HTTPS is HTTP with additional Security. the S in HTTPS stands for Secure. A blog is said to be secure if it is https-enabled.
19 Basic HTML Codes You Can Use
This is opened <>
This is closed tag </>
Center HTML Tag
This is great way of centering a YouTube video on your blog post or anything else that you want to have a center alignment.
Bold HTML tag
This is a simple HTML tag to use anytime you want something in particular to be in bold. Again, inside a blog post you can easily add this in the “visual” tab but the blog HTML tag is a helpful use in the widgets section.
<STRONG>This is Bold</STRONG>
Create a Link
This one is a bit more advanced but something you should probably know how to do. As bloggers we are always creating links and want to display links in the sidebar and other areas of the site. The code below is easy enough to use. You basically need to replace the code below with two things:
1. Where you want someone to go who clicks on the link.
2. Which words do you want to display as a link.<a href=”http://yourwebsite.com”>This is a Link</a>
It will look like this: This is a Link
**Note: It is a bit hard to see but after the <a href is an equal sign and not a dash.
I use the line break quite a bit when I want to create vertical spacing between text. You just place the tag in between anything that you want to create some space between (No closing tag needed for this one).
