How to Make An Attractive Street Articles Profile

Hi Street Article members. I would like to give some advice on making an attractive Street Articles profile. This includes learning how to color words, using features such as bold and italics, and more importantly using the h ref tag affectively.

Coloring Words

Using either your own site or a free site directory (like Blogger), I suggest clicking on a new post and type down the word or phrase you wish to color. Above the post, you should have a menu of different features you can use. Click on color, and you will have different colors you can apply. You can even click on more colors and manually pick a color yourself out of a seemingly infinite amount of variations. Once you see the color you want to apply, highlight your word or phrase and click the color you chose. It should now show up as that color.

Once you have done that, look around the post and see if you have 2 different tabs that say visual and html. If you see it, click on html. Somewhere in that line of html, you should see a # sign following a list of numbers or letters. These random letters and numbers are what identify the color you are using. You can either manually change colors using this code or just simply copy and paste the html into your Street Articles profile.

Using Features Like Bold, Italics, and Underline

Using either your own site or a free site directory, I suggest clicking on new post and type down the word or phrase you wish to apply bold, italics, or underline too. Above the post, you should have a menu of different features including bold, italicize, and underline. Highlight the word or phrase you want to change and click either bolt, italics, or underline. Your word should be changed with the feature you chose.

Now switch from the visual tab to the html tab. You should see a line of html with the word you chose. There are 3 different types of html you may see depending on whether you chose bold, italics, or underline. These tags surround your word or phrase for incorporating which feature you would like to use. As for why there is a / on the 2nd sign, that is probably there to indicate it is at the end.

Using the H Ref Tag

Using either your own site or a free site directory, I suggest clicking on new post and type down the word or phrase you wish to apply the h ref tag too. Highlight this word or phrase, click LINK. Now add the link you want to attach too. After you have successfully added the link to your word or phrase, switch to the html tab.

On the html tab, it should have at the end, with your link in quotation marks surrounding your chosen word or phrase in the center. Now there are 2 different things that you can add to this h ref tag. You can choose to redirect to a new tab or add a title link.

  1. You can incorporate a title tag with title= replacing the normal h ref tag. You easily do this on your new post just by typing in the title you want and the html will be added for you. Now when somebody moves there mouse over your link, it will show a small white box showing the title you chose.
  2. As for redirecting to a new tab, you can do this by clicking on Open link in a new window/tab. You can also do this manually by adding target="_blank" after your site link. Now when somebody clicks on your link, it will redirect to that site on another new tab instead of the tab they are currently on.

Street Articles have been making a lot of really cool updates lately like the ability to upload photos of yourself, the ability to add websites to your profile, and the new tribe feature. It is important to take advantage of these features by experimenting around and finding out what best suits you. You can really have a unique and attractive profile if you really use your own creativity.

Final Thoughts

If you have any questions, thoughts, or feedback about making an attractive Street Articles profile, feel free to leave a response.

Hey Seth, Unfortunately, this article may be deemed somewhat irrelevant at some point as we are going to strip the capabilities to format author profiles and make it flat text. What we are going to be improving the Website area and allowing you to add anchor text for your website URL's. Allow HTML within the author profile could create huge uniformity problems for the site. It is also being deprecated to remove any issues related to profile spam which is already taking place. At some point we may offer a better editor for this section with more features. Thanks for your understanding. :)

Hah, that's understandable. People could potentially spam there wall with nothing but html, which would be kind of dumb, but still possible. People could also potentially spam there whole wall with links, giving the idea to set a limited amount of links possible to put up on your wall. I think that most people on here would have enough common sense to not do that with links via there own profile. You could possibly try having an unlimited amount of available links and see what happens with it. One thing that I suggest doing is adding a target="_blank" in all the links so it redirects to a new tab so Street Articles can remain available on a tab. Everything else of course is just extra. Thanks a lot for letting me know, and I guess I'll wait until my profile looks like a spam box of html. :)

Yeah, thanks for your understanding Seth. We will continue to improve the design to put more focus and benefits into the author profile...I don't think that offering HTML capabilities does anyone a favor, in particular the readers. :)
