Linking #

This site has smart internal linking.
For example, tests#dithering will link to /docs/appendix/tests#dithering

Sometimes, the directory structure will change to better reflect the content it holds.
As long as linking uses the format of pagename#section internal urls will always work!

Additionally, internal linking is tested, to prevent urls from becoming broken if structure is changed.

How to format content #

For a introductory guide, see here

Additionally, this site supports shortcodes.

Forum Post Embed #

Posts on LEDStrain Forum can be embedded. Posts are cached, so changes to the original will be updated over time.
Either format can be used to identify which post:

  • Post ID: 11714
  • Permalink: https://ledstrain.org/d/795-community-wiki/1

Length can be specified to truncate content. 300 is the default.
length of -1 will show the entire post, regardless of length.

A domain can be specified, which can allow embedding content from other flarum based forums. This is primarily useful with using Post ID.

{{< forum-post 11714  >}}  
{{< forum-post id=11714 domain="https://ledstrain.org" length="300"  >}}  
{{< forum-post id=11714 length="-1"  >}}
