Designing your page on Wizzley is made easy with the great features designed into all the modules - It lends itself for writers to present good content and layout for the reader.

HTML codes are really not that difficult to use. There's nothing secret or special about them at all. In fact, with my guide to HTML codes to spice up your Wizzley modules, you will be giving your pages that special touch in no time.
There's lots of subtle little things you can do to text in order to make it both interesting to your reader and stand out to highlight exactly what you mean.
So if you want to make your, already good looking Wizzley page, into a great looking Wizzley page, I suggest you try a little bit of HTML coding.

HTML codes must go into a certain area within the Wizzley text module. When you open up the 'Edit' mode within a text module you can type whatever information you want within that module and it will appear on the page.

Borders around text using HTML code

A border around your text looks great and can be any colour you want

<p style="border: 4px solid #3e657d; padding: 15px; margin: 10px; line-height: 23px; color: #000000; text-align: left;">YOUR TEXT GOES HEREt</p>

Or maybe a dotted border

<p style="border: 3px dotted green; padding: 15px; margin: 10px; line-height: 23px; color: #000000; text-align: left;">YOUR TEXT GOES HERE</p> 

 

Or even a dashed border

<p style="border: 4px dashed grey; padding: 15px; margin: 10px; line-height: 23px; color: #000000; text-align: left;">YOUR TEXT GOES HERE</p>

Understand the HEX Number colours

Using the Hex Number to create a colour is far better then just naming the colour.

With the Hex Number you have an unlimited choice of colours that will go with your Wizzley theme and make your page look even better.

This is how 'HEX Number' change colour - Just alter you code accordingly - 


#FF0000 - This Hex give red      

#00FF00 - This Hex gives green      

#0000FF - This Hex gives blue       

#FFFF00 - This Hex gives yellow       

#CCEEFF - This Hex will give a very light blue

I was here back in January. I now have 30 lenses under my belt so I revisited this. I really like the tips. Good ideas.

Kingsley on 08/22/2013

I love your article TonfaGuy. I had been wondering how to customize my content using HTML on wizzley - actually, I'm yet to publish my articles. Your article has cleared things up. Thanks a lot.

WordChazer on 03/03/2013

Thanks for the reminder. Just sparking up my pages now.

Jerrico_Usher on 02/13/2013

I'd have to brush off my visual basic :) and API mods but I'm willing to learn basic programming again, vb isn't too hard, it's a step up from CSS and html lol... just need a basic set of buttons/options and the effect laid out already with fields to fill in what you want in there, then push a button to generate the html... May even be able to do it with html5 or javascript... skill sets I need to develop anyway...

TonfaGuy on 02/13/2013

That would be good, useful tool.
There's a few html generators out there but nothing that would create the effects like borders etc..
I think its a good idea..
Go for it..

Jerrico_Usher on 02/12/2013

I use this page everyday, it's in my speed dial settings when I need ideas for an effect or formatting... I'm thinking of building a software program to expedite the effects through a program like we did back in the AOL days hacking the software to generate effects, but in this case it would be a push button html creator just enter text or image you want in the effect and it generates the code to insert (or auto inserts it into the module/edit)...

BrendaReeves on 02/11/2013

Thank you for the tutorial. I plan on using it.

Thank you for this information, at first I did not see a way I would need to use it.

After thinking about it, I realised that this is something I have been wanting to do on my blogs and webpages and did not know how to make it work. Changing colours has always taken me far too long and been a bit hit and miss, with my limited technical skills. I am now going to have fun using this to update some of my blog pages.

TonfaGuy on 02/08/2013

your more than welcome - you have a lot of very good articles.

humagaia on 02/07/2013

First, thanks for reminding me that I can use HTML to 'spice thigs up' a bit - Wizzley has such great features that one forgets to 'stand out from the crowd'.
Second - thanks for linking to my Viglink page.
