FrontPage HelpOnMacros


1. Macros

Macros allow the insertion of system features into normal wiki pages; the only thing that makes those pages special is that they contain macros. If you edit pages like RecentChanges or SystemInfo, you'll see what that means.

For more information on the possible markup, see HelpOnEditing.

[[FullSearch]] search the page contents FindPage
[[GoTo]] directly go to the page you enter FindPage

2. Example Display

We don't show examples for all macros here, because that would make this page quite long. Here is is the replacement text for the [[SystemInfo]] macro:
