WikiCreole attempts to be a universal wiki markup language to be used across different wiki software.

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 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!


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


Hello there

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

Quote from Some random guy:

How was your day?


<<paste 528>>

print("This is a test paste")

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


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

The following BBCode tags are supported:

A hyper link
a url
displays an image
opens a list
a item in a list
a preformatted code block
show a paste from

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


Allows access to a restricted subset of HTML.

Valid Tags:

  • a
  • abbr
  • b
  • big
  • blockquote
  • br
  • caption
  • code
  • dd
  • del
  • dl
  • dt
  • em
  • h1

  • href
  • rowspan
  • src
  • title

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


Another lightweight markup language. See 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.

    At first I was like "Ugh, I don't want to learn Yet Another Markup Language*..."

    then I was like "Markdown? YAY I'M FROM REDDIT"

    (*Not to be confused with YAML, which stands for "YAML Ain't Markup Language".)

    Why couldn't we keep the same markup as in the forums, its such a headache redoing everything again!
