Compose tips

input formats:

  • Filtered HTML:
    • Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
    • 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.
    • Content in [[double square brackets]] will be linked to existing content with that title, or a page to create that content. Links can contain an optional bar, "|". Content on the left of the bar is the target; to the right, the link shown. Links to pages outside this site are allowed. They must start with one of the following: "http", "https", "ftp", or "mailto", and can exist either by themselves, or on the left of the bar. Examples:
    • [[simple link]] - will go to the content titled "simple link" or a page to create that content.
    • [[this is the target|this is the source]] - will present "this is the source" as a link to "this is the target", or a page to create that content.
    • [[http://www.example.com|this is the source]] - will present "this is the source" as a link to http://www.example.com.
    • [[http://www.example.com]] - will present "http://www.example.com" as a link to http://www.example.com.
