BBCode Plugin

What is BBCode ?

BBCode is a simple-to-understand markup language. See: BBCode

Available Tags

Content elements

  • [h2]Heading 2nd level[/h2] to [h6]Heading 6th level[/h6]
    (Because h1 is the heading for the page title, it has been disabled in the content of every page.)
  • [quote]text quotation[/quote]
  • [code]code[/code]
  • [list]
    [*]bulleted list element 1
    [*]bulleted list element 2
  • [list=#]
    [*]Numbered list element 1
    [*]Numbered list element 2
  • [video=http://youtube.com/MYVIDEO] allows to insert a YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook video in your entry
  • [url]http://www.page.com[/url] or [url=http://www.mypage.com]description[/url]
    • url can begin with images/ or attachs/ (images/ will be translated into IMAGES_DIR, attachs/ into ATTACHS_DIR, typically fp-content/attachs/)
  • [mail]user@example.org[/mail] or [mail=user@example.org]link text[/url] adds a bot-protected mail link
  • [html][/html] literal html. All code between these is not changed.
    Alternative: Enable inline HTML.


  • [img=IMAGEPATH (alt=alternate text) (title=title text) (popup=false) (scale=NN%) (width=N) (height=N) (float=left|right) (loading=lazy|eager)]
    (items in parenthesis are optional).
    • if IMAGEPATH begins with images/ it will be automatically translated into the appropriate URL for fp-content/images/
    • alt sets the alternate text
    • title title shown on mouse-over
    • float float the images to the left or to the right
    • popup If set to true and the LightBox2 plug-in is enabled (it is by default) display of the image will driven by the plug-in. (Actually the plug-in is the LightBox work-alike Slimbox).
    • scale creates a thumbnail NN% smaller than the original. Example: [img=images/picture.jpg scale=5%]
      • If the thumb plugin is enabled (it is by default) and the server has the GD2 php extension installed (usually it is) the generated thumbnail is a real, static thumbnail. Otherwise the image will look small in browser but the browser will be actually downloading the original file.
      • Setting a scale value automatically invokes popup=true and clicking on the thumbnail will display the image in a “LightBox”.
      • Scale doesn't work on remote images.
    • width and height set the width or height on the image in pixels.
      • You can use both of them or only one. If you set only one the re-sized image will retain its aspect ratio.
      • if the thumb plug-in is enabled and the GD2 php extension is installed on the server (usually it is) it will generate a thumbnail image file and popup=true will be invoked, unless specifically set to false.
      • Static thumbnail creation does not work on remote images.
    • loading images will be loaded not before the user scrolls near them (“lazy” - better performance!) or immediately on loading the page. If not set explicitly, “lazy” is used.

Text format

  • [b]bold[/b]
  • [i]italic[/i]
  • [u]underlined[/u]
  • [del]strike-through[/del]
  • [size=80%]smaller[/size] or [size=120%]bigger[/size] text

    FONT is a valid css font-family value (“sans-serif”, “Times” etc.)
