Introduction

For easy formatting of text in Hornbill, a subset of wiki markup can be used for decorating text with italics or bold, creating bulleted or numbered lists, and defining titles and subtitles. Wiki markup lets you quickly apply some basic formatting to your text as you type, giving it that extra touch to make it stand out.

Section Headings

Using the equal sign (=) on either side of a word creates a section heading. The number of equal signs determines the size of the heading. Each heading is followed by a line break.

Lists

There are two available types of lists, numbered and bulleted.

Bullet List

* Start each line
* with an asterisk (*).
** More asterisks give deeper

* Line breaks <br />don't break levels.
*** But jumping levels creates empty space.
Any other start ends the list.

Text Formatting

Single quotation marks ( ' ) are used to format text as either bold or italic. Typing two single quotation marks either side of some text will italicize the text. Typing three single quotation marks either side of some text will bold the text.

Links

Hyperlinks to other areas of Hornbill can be added. This includes the ability to provide some friendly text along with the link. These links are internal to your instance of Hornbill. The URL link will always be prefixed with https://live.hornbill.com/<your instance>/

Date Formatting

You can wrap a Date & Time value (e.g. 21-02-2020 16:10:30) with square brackets to apply the configured preferences in your Profile's Regional Settings.

For example, if the "Date Time Format" option in my Profile's Regional Settings is set to "21/02/2020 16:10", the syntax [01-01-1970 01:00:00] would result in 01/01/1970 01:00.

Another common use is using the Variable Picker in the Business Process Engine to post to a Timeline or Workspace. You can wrap the generated value (by the Variable Picker) with square brackets. For example, &[functions.pcf("askAQuestion","selectStartDate")] becomes [&[functions.pcf("askAQuestion","selectStartDate")]].

Images

Images can be added to any text field that allows wiki markup other than Posts or Comments as they have their own mechanism for managing images.

Syntax: [[File:filename.extension|options|caption]]

Legacy Image: namespace prefix is still supported as a synonym as well as Media.
