When you want to display characters that have other meanings in wikitext, you can escape the wikitext formatting by putting double backtick characters on either side of your text. The backtick shares a key with the tilde.

RSS Feeds

[[rss url="http://source.url/feed"]]

Replace http://source.url/feed with the URL of your RSS feed. By default, this will display the last ten updates as text links, but you can make the following modifications to how your feed will be displayed:
url full URL to the feed (required)
title title text to display above the feed (or blank for none)
number how many items to show, default 10
description to show each item's description text, either "true" or default "false"
date to show the item date after the title, either "true" or default "false"
author to show the author of the item after the title, either "true" or default "false"
length the number of characters to show in the description, max. 250
enclosure to show each item's media enclosures (audio, video, pictures), either "true" or default "false"



The variables below will let you place dynamic content in your pages. Since pages are sometimes cached after being created, some items, such as the number of pages in the wiki, may not be updated immediately.


Supported variables

Wiki name {$spacename}
Wiki text {$spacetext}
Wiki description {$spacedescription}
Page Count {$pagesinspace}
Servername (the hostname of the wiki) {$servername}
Server (the url for the main page of the wiki) {$server}
License {$licensename}
License URL {$licenseurl}
Member Count {$membersinspace}
Organizer Count {$organizersinspace}
Project Name {$project}
Team Name {$team}
Page Name {$page}
Revision count {$pagerevisions}
Full Page Name (alias for {$spacename}:{$page}) {$fullpagename}
Editor (Username of the user, or the IP address of the guest, who create this revision) {$revisioneditor}
Comment {$revisioncomment}
Revision ID {$revisionid}
Revision Dates
Date (In human readable format) {$revisiondate}
Day {$revisionday}
Day (with leading zero) {$revisionday2}
Month {$revisionmonth}
Year {$revisionyear}
Timestamp (In ISO 8601 Format) {$revisiontimestamp}
Creator(Username of the user, or the IP address of the guest, who created this page) {$creator}
Comment {$creationcomment}
Creation Page ID {$creationid}
Creation Dates
Date (In human readable format) {$creationdate}
Day {$creationday}
Day (with leading zero) {$creationday2}
Month {$creationmonth}
Year {$creationyear}
Timestamp (In ISO 8601 Format) {$creationtimestamp}
User Name {$username}

Variable modifiers

Modifiers are used to change the value of the variable into a different format. Modifiers are separated from the variable name with the pipe (|) character, and can be combined together — for example, {$pagename|ignoreinclude|url}.
Output modifiers
URL escaping |url {$server|url}
Scope modifiers
Ignore include
This modifier tells the variable to return the value of the original page it's on, even if that page is included in another page (see below).
|ignoreinclude {$page|ignoreinclude}

Javascript variables

While editing Pages, it is possible to include Javascript inside an Embedded Object.
Several variables can be accessed from the client side to determine the current state of the application, as follows:
User/space definition variables
wikispaces_isUserLoggedIn boolean set if user has entered valid login information
wikispaces_username string set to current user's login handle
wikispaces_spaceName string set to current Space that user is viewing
URL construction variables
wikispaces_method string system - type of function being performed ( 'view', etc. )
wikispaces_object string system - type of object being viewed/modified ( 'message', etc. )
wikispaces_page string set to name of current wikipage
wikispaces_id string system - object identifier ( for messages )


Contents of Another Wiki Page

The entire contents of one page can be pasted into another with the [[include]] tag. This can be useful in breaking a large page up into smaller, more manageable pieces, or to create reusable components, like headers and footers. The only required attribute of the include tag is the page attribute.

Supported includes

Basic page include [[include page="PAGENAME"]]
Include page with section title [[include page="PAGENAME" title="Section Title"]]
Include page with direct edit button [[include page="PAGENAME" editable="true"]]
Include a list of pages [[include component="pageList"]]
Include a list of pages with a tag [[include component="pageList" tag="TAGNAME"]]
Include a tag cloud [[include component="tagCloud" ]]
Include a discussion page [[include page="PAGENAME" component="comments"]]
Include a list of links to this page [[include page="PAGENAME" component="backlinks"]]
Include page from another wiki [[include page="WIKINAME:PAGENAME"]]
