This site allows HTML content. While learning all of HTML may feel intimidating, learning how to use a very small number of the most basic HTML "tags" is very easy. This table provides examples for each tag that is enabled on this site.

Most unusual characters can be directly entered without any problems.

If you do encounter problems, try using HTML character entities. A common example looks like & for an ampersand & character. For a full list of entities see HTML's entities page. Some of the available characters include:Character DescriptionYou TypeYou Get

You may quickly link to image nodes using a special syntax. Each image code will be replaced by thumbnail linked to full size image node. Syntax:[image:node_id align=alignment hspace=n vspace=n border=n size=label width=n height=n nolink=(0|1) class=name style=style-data node=id]

Every parameter except node_id is optional.

Typically, you will specify one of size, width, or height, or none of them. If you use size=label, where label is one of the image size labels specified on the image settings page, the size associated with that label will be used. The sizes "thumbnail", "preview", and "original" are always available. If you use width=n or height=n, the image will be scaled to fit the specified width or height. If you use none of them, the thumbnail image size will be used.

If you specify nolink=1, no link will be created to the image node. The default is to create a link to the image.

Alternatively, if you specify node=id, a link will be created to the node with the given id.

The align, hspace, vspace, border, class, and style parameters set the corresponding attributes in the generated img tag.

You may link to files uploaded with the current node using special tags. The tags will be replaced by the corresponding files. For example:

      Suppose you uploaded three files (in this order):
imag1.png (referred as file #1)
file1.pdf (referred as file #2)
imag2.png (referred as file #3)


[inline:1=test]  or  [inline:imag1.png=test]
      will be replaced by


[file:1=test]  or  [file:imag1.png=test]
      will be replaced by test


[attachment:2=test]  or  [attachment:file1.pdf=test]
      will be replaced by test
