WritersCo uses a limited version of HTML which we call "pseudo HTML". This limited version however gives you the ability to edit your wiki page, forum entry, writing entry etc to a certain degree.


Formatting Text

Headers

<h1> huge header "h1" ending with </h1>
<h2> large header "h2" ending with </h2>

Preformatted-text

<pre> pre-formatting tag "pre" ending with </pre>

Aligning text

<center>Text to be centered </center>
<right>Text to be aligned right</right>

Indented text

<indent>Indented text</indent>

Bold, Italic, Underlining and Strikethrough

<b> bold tag "b" ending with </b>
<i> italics tag "i" ending with </i>
<u> underlined tag "u" ending with </u>
<s> strikethrough tag "s" ending with </s>

Superscript and Subscript

<sup>superscript text</sup>
<sub>subscript text</sub>


Inserting Other Objects

There are two "objects" you can insert into your text: images and horizontal rulers.

Inserting an image:

<IMG:(URL to the image)>

Inserting a horizontal ruler:

<hr>

Resizing Images

<IMG50:imageurl>
Keeps the current ratio between width and height, but new width will be 50 pixels.

<IMG*50:imageurl>
Keeps the current ratio between width and height, but new height will be 50 pixels.

<IMG25*50:imageurl>
Image re-sized and stretched to 25 by 50 pixels.


Creating Links

Linking to a Web Page:

To make a link to a webpage you just write the URL to the webpage. Nothing more, nothing less.

Linking to a WritersCo Wiki Page:

To make a link to a page on the WritersCo Wiki, you write the page name followed by @wiki within square brackets. When written correctly, the page name without the brackets and @wiki will be displayed as the link in the resulting text.

An example:
[index@wiki]

The link looks like this:
index

(Advanced: Between "@wiki" and "]" you can add "edit", version number and/or #where in page (set with ) like this: [page@wikiedit88#hint] takes you to version 88 of "page" with an edit-form at the first <#hint> in it)

Linking to a WritersCo Writing Page:

To link to the Writing index of a member use:
[membernr@writings]
To link to the Writing Page in the index use:
[membernr.title@writings]

(membernr = member number. You can find it at the top center of your presentation.)

Linking to a WritersCo Member

To link to an WritersCo member you simply write the member's name within square brackets

An example:
[Hedda

Linking to a Posting

A link to a posting is very similar to a link to a member; the posting number within square brackets:

[1]

Linking to a poll

You can link to a poll with a link that looks like this: <poll:(poll number)>
You can find the poll number right beside the poll's title.

Linking to a Diary entry
You can link to a diary entry by using this syntax <diary:entry number>

Linking to a Private Forum

If you have created a private forum, you can provide a link with a password to the forum to allow people to join the forum without invitation. The link looks like this: <joinforum:(forum number):(password)>

Linking to a forum

A link to an ordinary forum is a bit more complicated than a link to a private forum. To link to a forum, you use the pseudo HTML "URL" tag, writing the Elftown URL to the forum: <URL:view_forum?forumnr=(forum number)>

Linking to the news on mainpage

You can link to the news by using this syntax <URL:news.html?nrs=(newsnumber)>

An example: <URL:news.html?nrs=1>

Clicking on the link will open a new window.

Linking to any page on WritersCo

To link to a page on WritersCo you can use the pseudo HTML "URL" tag: <URL:( WritersCo URL)>

An example:
<URL:help.html>

The " WritersCo URL" is the same as the URL to the page but without "http://www.elftown.com/".
Clicking on the link will open a new window.

Writing tags that are shown

If you want to write a pseudo HTML tag that will be shown instead of interpreted as a tag, just like in the examples on this page, you put the string !uQt! somewhere in the tag. An example:

<!uQt!b> [index@!uQt!wiki] <!uQt!/b> 


Miscellaneous Notes

Case Sensitivity:

Tags can be written in both uppercase and lowercase, but the whole tag must be in the same "case". That means you can write <hr> as well as <HR>, but not <Hr> or <hR>.

Paragraphs and Line Breaks:

As you may already have noticed, you don't use the paragraph or line break HTML tags (<p> and <br>) on WritersCo. Instead you just write your text as you would in a text editor, using the Enter key to make line breaks as usual.

HTML Tags that Don't Work:

Here is a list of some (but not all!) of the HTML tags that cannot be used: <h3> <h4> <h5> <marquee> <font color=red> <blink>
