How to Use Thumb Codes + Stamps on dA - OUTDATED by SweetDuke How to Use Thumb Codes + Stamps on dA - OUTDATED by SweetDuke
EDIT - This tutorial is now outdated. I'll update it with new images when I have time.

To find thumb codes now:
1. Go to deviation
2. Find the blue words "Share" under the deviation
3. Copy the code under "Thumb"


Now that thumb codes are usable for everyone, I hope that this tutorial will be helpful for some people, especially since I do get an endless plethora of questions on my status stamps about how to use stamps...even though the directions are already in the description. :'D

I made this mostly for the directions in Ooo look another thumbnail! *shot*

Let me know if you have any questions!

For those who are having trouble and posting thumbs on messages.

Without membership: You can only use thumbs on your page, not in text/message.

With membership: You can use thumbs on your page and text

For example in text only for PMs: Commissions - Friends Only by SweetDuke

I think it's for when you want to use a pixel icon on a custom box, but not on comments because it worked on my custom profile page box :)

You can hit "Preview" instead of "Submit Comment" to test it out first, instead of sending me a comment notification.  ;)

Someone please help me! I'm trying to do just as this says, but the stamps just won't appear :( All I get is this:

<da:thumb id="190481084">  <da:thumb id="122450866">  <da:thumb id="64962408">

It's really strange. I'm trying to put these stamps in a description for my artwork, when I 'preview' the description, the stamps show - but when I submit, they're gone.

Are you still having this problem?  If you can, can you send me a link to a deviation where it won't show up?  Just make sure you have less than 6 thumbs, since dA won't let you have more than 6 in one deviation.  c:

For this one, I just copy/pasted the thumb code, :thumb414025492:

Are all stamps from all deviants free to use?
Reply

SweetDuke Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2014
Usually it's safe to say that stamps are free for anyone to use, unless the deviant says otherwise in their artist's comments.  c:
