Textile Knowledge Nuggets

I’ve run into some problems formatting an article about markup, which I was writing in textpattern, which uses markup …. you can see where this is going. Well I learned some new tricks!

escaping from textile

To prevent a block from being processed, just use double equals signs around what you are interested in (don’t know how to show you an example without breaking stuff so I won’t try!)

This is much better than the results from ... or bc. where your code can still get processed.

to make a block style persist

When using a block quote to show lots of lines of code, or verses of a song, use a double dot, like this:


Then everything else you write

Even if it has line breaks

Will carry on being in that style until you start a new style


such as a paragraph

Many thanks to AllPhilosophy for these! http://allphilosophy.com/home/guide/rich
