- 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.
- You can insert footnotes directly into texts with
[fn]This text becomes a footnote.[/fn]. This will be replaced with a running number (the footnote reference) and the text within the [fn] tags will be moved to the bottom of the page (the footnote).
You may quickly link to image nodes using a special syntax. Each image code will be replaced by thumbnail linked to full size image node. Syntax:
[image:node_id align=alignment hspace=n vspace=n border=n size=label width=n height=n nolink=(0|1) class=name style=style-data node=id]
Every parameter except node_id is optional.
Typically, you will specify one of
height, or none of them. If you use
size=label, where label is one of the image size labels specified on the image settings page, the size associated with that label will be used. The sizes "thumbnail", "preview", and "original" are always available. If you use
height=n, the image will be scaled to fit the specified width or height. If you use none of them, the thumbnail image size will be used.
If you specify
nolink=1, no link will be created to the image node. The default is to create a link to the image.
Alternatively, if you specify
node=id, a link will be created to the node with the given id.
