- b - <strong></strong> HTML tag for strong emphasis of text (i.e. bold).
- i - <em></em> HTML tag for emphasis of text (i.e. italicize).
- b-quote - <blockquote></blockquote> HTML tag to distinguish quoted or cited text.
- del - <del></del> HTML tag to label text considered deleted from a post. Most browsers display as striked through text.
- link - <a href="http://example.com"></a> HTML tag to create a hyperlink.
- ins - <ins></ins> HTML tag to label text considered inserted into a post. Most browsers display as underlined text.
- ul - <ul></ul> HTML tag will insert an unordered list, or wrap the selected text in same. An unordered list will typically be a bulleted list of items.
- ol - <ol></ol> HTML tag will insert a numbered list, or wrap the selected text in same. Each item in an ordered list is typically numbered.
- li - <li></li> HTML tag will insert or make the selected text a list item. Used in conjunction with the ul or ol tag.
- code - <code></code> HTML tag for preformatted styling of text. Generally sets text in a
monospaced font, such as Courier.
- more - <!--more--> WordPress tag that breaks a post into "teaser" and content sections. Type a few paragraphs, insert this tag, then compose the rest of your post. On your blog's home page you'll see only those first paragraphs with a hyperlink (
(more...)), which when followed displays the rest of the post's content.
- page - <!--nextpage--> WordPress tag similar to the
moretag, except it can be used any number of times in a post, and each insert will "break" and paginate the post at that location. Hyperlinks to the paginated sections of the post are then generated in combination with the wp_link_pages() or link_pages() template tag.
- Close Tags - Closes any open HTML tags left open--but pay attention to the closing tags. WordPress is not a mind reader (!), so make sure the tags enclose what you want, and in the proper way.
Workflow Note - With Quicktag buttons that insert HTML tags, you can for example click i to insert the opening
<em> tag, type the text to be enclosed, and click /i or Close Tags to insert the closing tag. However, you can eliminate the need for this 'close' step by changing your workflow a bit: type your text, select the portion to be emphasized (that is, italicized), then click i and your highlighted text will be wrapped in the opening and closing tags.
