Compose tips

  • References to project issues in the form of [#1234] (or [#1234-2] for comments) turn into links automatically, with the title of the issue appended. The status of the issue is shown on hover. If '@' is appended (e.g. [#1234@]), the user the issue is assigned to will also be printed.

    Block modifier syntax:

    CSS attributes can be applied to blocks (paragraphs, headers, etc.). CSS classes are specifed with (class); CSS IDs are specified with (#id); both can be specified with (class#id). An arbtirary CSS style can be applied by using {style}. Finally, language attributes are applied using [language].

    Additionally, alignment and indentation shorthands are provided. To left-align, right-align, center, and justify text, use <, >, =, and <>, respectively. ( left-indents a block 1em for each occurrence, and ) right-indents similarly.

    Tables have additional options. ^, -, and ~ specify top, middle, and bottom vertical alignment. The _ attribute on a cell indicates that it is a table header.

    The examples below illustrate these attributes.

    • m — (Small) 240 pixels on longest side

  • Insert view filter allows to embed views using tags. The tag syntax is relatively simple: [view:name=display=args]
    For example [view:tracker=page=1] says, embed a view named "tracker", use the "page" display, and supply the argument "1".
    The display and args parameters can be omitted. If the display is left empty, the view's default display is used.
    Multiple arguments are separated with slash. The args format is the same as used in the URL (or view preview screen).
