Compose tips

  • Insert Flickr images: [flickr-photo:id=230452326,size=s] or [flickr-photoset:id=72157594262419167,size=m].The size parameter can be one of the following:
    • s — (Square) 75 px square
    • t — (Thumbnail) 100 px on longest side
    • q — (Large Square) 150 px square
    • m — (Small) 240 px on longest side
    • n — (Small 320) 320 px on longest side
    • - — (Medium) 500 px on longest side
    • z — (Medium 640) 640 px on longest side
    • c — (Medium 800) 800 px on longest side
    • b — (Large) 1024 px on longest side
    • h — (Large 1600) 1600 px on longest side
    • k — (Large 2048) 2048 px on longest side
    • o — (Original) Original image
  • 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.
  • To add a lightbox to your images, add rel="lightbox" attribute to any link tag to activate the lightbox. For example:

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox">image #1</a>

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[][my caption]">image #1</a>

    To show a caption either use the title attribute or put in the second set of square brackets of the rel attribute.

    If you have a set of related images that you would like to group, then you will need to include a group name between square brackets in the rel attribute. For example:

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #1</a>
    <a href="image-2.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip][caption 2]">image #2</a>
    <a href="image-3.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip][caption 3]">image #3</a>

    There are no limits to the number of image sets per page or how many images are allowed in each set.

    If you wish to turn the caption into a link, format your caption in the following way:

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel='lightbox[][<a href="http://www.yourlink.com">View Image Details</a>]' >image #1</a>

  • Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
  • Allowed HTML tags: <a> <address> <b> <blockquote> <br> <caption> <center> <cite> <code> <dd> <del> <div> <dl> <dt> <em> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr> <i> <img> <ins> <li> <ol> <p> <pre> <quote> <small> <span> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <tbody> <td> <tr> <u> <ul>
