In the FAQ section, devote one portion to all the codes you need to be able to change the appearance of your journal, and also put LJ-user tags more easily.
Full description of the idea:
This is something I struggle with as someone who isn't very computer savvy. Just put a list in of all the HTML commands you need, including:
-The one for creating LJ tags
-The one for uploading pictures
-The ones to create different font (if they exist?), typeface (i.e., bold, italic, underline), centering, coloring
-The ones to change comment options (i.e., "write to me" instead of "comment on this")
There are other possibilities for stuff to include on this list...
An ordered list of benefits:
1) Would help people like me who have trouble catching on to HTML usage have one central place to find all these commands.
2) Would reduce misstyped HTML which ends up appearing as gobbledygook on the journal.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved:
1) Takes up more space in the FAQ?
2) May undermine other areas of the FAQ where these problems are addressed
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
State some helpful hints, or clarifications on your idea as to how to get it going.
I'm not sure how to change the FAQ, since I am not an administrator, but I imagine it's not the hardest thing to add some textual instructions to the FAQ.
