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.

:) :( :D :O ;) O:) 8) :* :| :'( <3:) :( :D :O ;) O:) 8) :* :| :'( <3

Positioning

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

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.

    Is there any way to "float" an image so that the text flows around it? The image "align" attribute gets stripped out.

    Why don't we have Spoiler BBCodes? These collapsable text boxes really help structuring huge amounts of text and images.

    One shoud do somethign about it...

    Icons for the Swarm - Visit the spawning cluster! See you there! - Until time.

    Cause you want to be pwned by sweeter zerg!

    Apparently some people don't like HTML... You have a fuckload of examples for pretty much all markup types BUT HTML.

    And why the hell is <font> gone? Now my plugin page looks like a piece of shit. All you see is a bunch of text with formatting codes where a nice page used to be. Please tell me how the hell <font> isn't safe, cause in my eyes, it ain't gonna do any damage. And I'm pretty sure that blockquote isn't nearly used as much as <font>.

    @tyzoid:

    By the way, sir, you never closed your second font tag in sentence 3. :3
    BRING BACK <FONT>!!!!!!!!!
    ...
    </font></font></font></font>

    Also, having the class attribute would be nice too.

    There is now no way to color you text with SafeHTML
