Full HTML

  • Lines and paragraphs are automatically recognized. The <br /> line break, <p> paragraph and </p> close paragraph tags are inserted automatically. If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines.
  • Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
  • Potential spoilers can be hidden between [spoiler][/spoiler] tags to hide them by default.
  • Get goodreads API results using [goodreads_function selector parameters], for example, [goodreads_get_isbn_reviews work-original_title 1430209895], [goodreads_oauth_get_user_books review-*-book-title 7535600,title,a], or [goodreads_oauth_get_users_owned_books owned_book-0-review-url 7535600]. Selectors are the array indexes to retrieve the data desired separated by dashes instead of enclosed in square brackets. So [work][id][value] is represented by work-id-value. Parameters are the parameters passed to the function. They are separated by commas. While they can be contained in single or double quotes, it is not required. Single quotes inside double quotes are preserved, conversely double quotes inside single quotes are preserved. For selectors that can return array items (e.g. -0-), use the index number in place of the zero, or use * (asterisk) to return a comma separated list of the values. For example, [goodreads_get_isbn_reviews work-original_title 1430209895] will provide the title of the item, and [goodreads_get_isbn_reviews image_url 1430209895] will be replaced with a URL to the image which can be embedded inside the HTML img tag giving the large image.
  • If you include a textual smiley in your post (see chart below), it will be replaced by a graphical smiley.

  • Quoted content can be placed between [quote] tags in order to be displayed as an indented quote. Every [quote] tag must have a corresponding [/quote] tag. For example:

    [quote]This is a simple quote.[/quote]
    is displayed as:

    Quote:
    This is a simple quote.

    Additionally, there is an optional attribute which allows quotes to specify the original author.

    [quote=Mr. Drupal]This is a quote with an attribution line.[/quote]
    is displayed as:

    Mr. Drupal wrote:
    This is a quote with an attribution line.

    Finally, multiple [quote] tags can be nested within one another. Just remember that every [quote] tag must have a corresponding [/quote] tag.

    [quote]I think she says it best...
    [quote=Ms. Quotation]This is a quote nested within another quote.[/quote]
    but you can't argue with
    [quote=Ms. Reply]The more quotes, the merrier.
    Just don't get too carried away.[/quote]
    And I have nothing more to say.[/quote]
    is displayed as:
