Knowledge Base / Markup Types


There are currently four different markup options on CurseForge. Each one is different and will be covered in more detail below.

Curse Wiki

Curse Wiki is modeled after MediaWiki's markup. As a result most of MediaWiki's standard usage will apply.

Most notable difference is the lack of simple linking, i.e. [SubPage] won't render properly.

Also Image links won't work. There may be others that I'm not aware of (I didn't write the current implementation), so please make me aware of them.

In the future I plan to do a full rewrite of the parser engine to fix these and other issues.

General Mediawiki Markup


The following BBCode tags are supported:

[b] : Bold
[i] : Italic
[u] : Underline
[s] : strikethrough
[link] : A hyper link
[url] : a url
[quote] : quoting
[img] : displays an image
[wiki] : Displays a wikipedia search link.
[google] : Displays a google search link.
[dict] or [dictionary] : looks up a word via
[list] : opens a list
[*] : a item in a list
[code] : a preformatted code block


This allows you to use a subset of html in your postings.

Valid Tags:

  • a
  • p
  • b
  • br
  • hr
  • strong
  • u
  • em
  • i
  • img
  • div
  • span
  • center
  • table
  • td
  • tr
  • thead
  • tfoot
  • tbody
  • caption
  • colgroup
  • rowgroup
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • h2
  • h3
  • h4
  • h5
  • h6

You may use the following attributes:

  • id
  • name
  • title
  • width
  • height
  • style
  • href
  • src

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.
