How to Use Thumb Codes + Stamps on dA - OUTDATED by SweetDuke How to Use Thumb Codes + Stamps on dA - OUTDATED by SweetDuke
EDIT - This tutorial is now outdated.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

Putting thumb in text and comments will work on premium members..

Normal users can use thumb only on their profiles.. Aww I want to be a premium :( (Sad) 

Nice icon Meow :3

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:
