WebYep Help: Long Text

Description

You can use a WebYep Long Text field to enter text with simple formatting (like bold text or lists). When entering text you should keep the following in mind:

Some parts of your text will be formatted automatically - like links and e-mail addresses:

when entering
WebYep will display e.g.:

http://www.test.com

The text "http://www.test.com" formatted as a link to this URL - a new browser window will be opened when clicking the link!

http://www.test.com
(the visual appearance of links in your website might vary!)

test@company.com

The text "test@firma.com" formatted as a mailto link to the given e-mail address.

test@firma.com
(the visual appearance of links in your website might vary!)

More formatting can be done by using these formatting tags:

when entering
WebYep will display e.g.:

<LINK:otherpage.php To some other page>

The text "To some other page" formatted as a link to otherpage.php - no new browser window will be opened when clicking the link! You can also use full URLs (including the "http://..." part) instead of just the file name (otherpage.php).

To some other page

<BOLD Some bold Text>

The text "Some bold text" formatted in bold.

Some bold text

<SPECIAL Some text with special formatting>

The text "Some text with special formatting" in a style defined by the webdesigner. Which styles with which names ("SPECIAL") are available, is defined by the web designer who created your website.

Some text with special formatting

---

A horizontal line. The sequence "---" must start at the very beginning of a line!


* First list item
** A subitem
* Second list item with some longer text
* Third list item

By placing an asterisc or bullet list symbol at the beginning of a line you can create lists.

  • First list item
    • A subitem
  • Second list item with some longer text
  • Third list item

You can place several lines of text into a single list item by placing two spaces at the beginning of the line - like in:

* First item
  This is all part of the first list item.
* Second item
...

  • First item
    This is all text of the first list item.
  • Second item

And you can also combine different formatting commands - e.g.:

* <BOLD First item>
  This is all part of the first list item.
* Second item
...

  • First item
    This is all text of the first list item.
  • Second item

+ First list item
++ A subitem
+ Second list item with a quite long text
+ Third list item

By using a "+" (plus) instead of the asterisk, an ordered (numbered) list is created.

  1. First list item
    1. A subitem
  2. Second list item with a quite long text
  3. Third list item

aaa | bbb | ccc
111 | 222 | 333

By using the "|" symbol you can create simple tables. The "|" serves as the column delimiter.

The look of the table is defined by the web designer who created your website.

aaa bbb ccc
111 222 333
\< As the character "<" is used for formatting purposes, it needs to be preceded by the character "\" (the backslash) to be inserted as is. <
\> For ">" the same is true as for "<". >
\| For "|" the same is true as for "<". |

Usage

Enter the desired text (including some formatting sequences) and click the "Save" button.

The editor window will close after saving and the changed text will appear in you web page.
In some rare cases you might need to klick the "Reload Page" button of you web browser.
