Markups

Documentation > Handbook > Markups

Most of BoltWire's markups are simple and easy to learn. They are similar to other wikis, though each system varies slightly. The exact display can also vary depending on your skin's style sheet. Here's a few more notes on markups. And here's a tutorial on how to change the markup table.

As noted elsewhere, there are other markups BoltWire will recognize as well, including numerous variables, conditionals, and functions. BoltWire also allows you to create powerful forms with interactive inputs fields and commands. Many simple HTML tags are allowed, and most white space is honored (including line returns, tabs and spaces). Furthermore, BoltWire has extensive styling support. See the handbook for information about these advanced markups.

Here is a list of the basic markups in BoltWire and what they produce. To view this table below from anywhere in the site, just use the help action.
