Compose tips

Text Formats

Filtered HTML

  • 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). See <a href="http://drupal.org/project/footnotes">Footnotes Readme page</a> for additional usage options.
  • You can insert idiom tags directly into texts with [idiom name="name"]Idiom goes here[/idiom]. For example, there is a line in the song: "when a pig fly". The site engine does not notice that it is an idiom, because the corresponding idiom is listed as "when pigs fly". Solution - wrap the words into idiom tag, [idiom name="when pigs fly"]when a pig fly[/idiom]

  • 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:

    Quote:
    I think she says it best...
