LibGuides Tips: Commonly Used html

Helpful tips & tricks for your everyday LibGuides use

html basics

It helps to have a basic sense of html code when working in LibGuides a lot. There are times when you can only adjust certain things using html. For instance, when you add a link as a content type or enter a description of something, and you want to adjust the size of the font. You can do this by adding some html tags.

Notice in the box below, the html tags in the "Link Name" box. This adjusts the size of the font to an 18 pixel size. Those tags can also be used in the "Description" and "More Info" boxes, but I left them out so that you can see the size difference.


<p style="font-size:18px">


Commonly Used html tags

Bold: <strong> Bold Text Here </strong>

Italics: <em> Italicized Text Here <em>

Font Size: <p style="font-size:18px"> Font Size 18 </p>

Font Color: <span style="color:#EE0000;"> Font Color Red </span>

It will also help if you know the different color hex codes.
