Youtube video

<<youtube video_code_here>>

Your video code is everything that comes after the v= in your youtube url. For example, say your url is youtube.com/watch?v= 1XNTjVScm_8. You would type the following:

<<youtube 1XNTjVScm_8>>

Vimeo video

<<vimeo 4202002>>

Font size

<<size 200%>>Hello<</size>>Hello

<<size 24px>>Hello<</size>>Hello

Font color

Please don't abuse this. Egregious use of colors may make us re-evaluate having this at all. Also, be aware of changing background colors. Green on black might look nice, but but Green on white might not.

<<color red>>It's red!<</color>>It's red!

<<color 00f>>It's blue!<</color>>It's blue!

<<color 00ff00>>It's green!<</color>>It's green!

<<color #ffff00>>It's yellow!<</color>>It's yellow!

Quotes

<<quote>>Hello there<</quote>>

Quote:

Hello there

<<quote Some random guy>>How was **your** day?<</quote>>

Quote from Some random guy:

How was your day?

Pastes

<<paste 528>>

1
2
3
4
5
print("This is a test paste")

if true then
    return "Isn't it awesome?"
end

Emotes

Note: Since unexpected emotes can mess up lines of code, all emotes must have whitespace surrounding them to turn into a graphical version.

<<left>>This shows on the left<</left>>

<<center>>This shows in the center<</center>>

BBCode

The following BBCode tags are supported:

[b]
Bold
[i]
Italic
[s]
strikethrough
[link]
A hyper link
[url]
a url
[quote]
quoting
[img]
displays an image
[list]
opens a list
[*]
a item in a list
[code]
a preformatted code block
[paste]1234[/paste]
show a paste from paste.WowAce.com

Note: Our BBCode implementation is a thin wrapper around WikiCreole. The BBCode tags are converted to WikiCreole, and then that parser is used.

Safe HTML

Allows access to a restricted subset of HTML.

Valid Tags:

  • a
  • abbr
  • b
  • big
  • blockquote
  • br
  • caption
  • code
  • dd
  • del
  • dl
  • dt
  • em
  • h1
  • h2
  • h3
  • h4
  • h5
  • h6
  • hr
  • i
  • img
  • li
  • ol
  • p
  • pre
  • s
  • small
  • strike
  • strong
  • sub
  • sup
  • table
  • tbody
  • td
  • tfoot
  • th
  • thead
  • tr
  • ul

Valid attributes:

  • alt
  • colspan
  • href
  • rowspan
  • src
  • title

Note: All tags and attributes must be lowercase. Uppercase is not supported.

Markdown

Another lightweight markup language. See http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/ for more details.

Plain Text

Just what it sounds like. This simply escapes characters, urlizes links, replaces newlines with a br tag and wraps paragraphs with p tags.

    Creole is a common wiki markup language to be used across different wikis. It's not replacing existing markup but instead enabling wiki users to transfer content seamlessly across wikis, and for novice users to contribute more easily.I want to write a dissertation on my Other Project in same content base languages.

    This type of markup should be used in most of the sites because they are easy and much as they are going to make it more awesome. Essay Writing help||

    The idea was conceived during a workshop and the development to the standard itself is frozen, discussion in the developer community regarding good practices in wiki markup design and about possible additions and changes for future Creole versions continues. Assignment writers from Assignment Kingdom also working on all graphical version.

    @jamiemac262: Go

    You cant because the youtube embed code is either in the <iframe></iframe> tag or in the <object></object> tag. Safe HTML does not allow those.

    I wishthey would allow span elements and the such as well. I know HTML but I feel as if my hands are tied and not able to add much customization/uniqueness that my plugin(s) page(s).

    Please add recognizable headings to Safe-HTML. Now pages written with this markup are deprived of contents.
