Compose tips

  • Syntax highlight code surrounded by the {syntaxhighlighter SPEC}...{/syntaxhighlighter} tags, where SPEC is a Syntaxhighlighter options string or "class="OPTIONS" title="the title".

    Example: {syntaxhighlighter brush:php;collapse:true;first-line:50;highlight:[57,81,101];class-name:'some_class some_other_class'}...{/syntaxhighlighter}

    This will syntax highlight PHP code, initially collapsed, start line number at 50, highlight lines 57, 81 and 101 and tag highlighted code with class names some_class and some_other_class.

    See the Syntaxhighlighter javascript library site for additional helps.

    Most unusual characters can be directly entered without any problems.

    If you do encounter problems, try using HTML character entities. A common example looks like &amp; for an ampersand & character. For a full list of entities see HTML's entities page. Some of the available characters include:

  • Paging Help

    Break long pages into smaller ones by means of a page break tag (e.g. <!--pagebreak-->):

    First page here.
    <!--pagebreak-->
    Second page here.
    <!--pagebreak-->
    More pages here.

    Automatic page breaking based on character or word count is also supported.
