Compose tips

  • Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
  • Typogrify.module brings the typographic refinements of Typogrify to Drupal.
    • Wraps ampersands (the $ldquo;&” character) with <span class=\"amp\">&</span>.
    • Prevents single words from wrapping onto their own line using Shaun Inman's Widont technique.
    • Converts straight quotation marks to typographer's quotation marks, using SmartyPants.
    • Converts multiple hyphens to en dashes and em dashes (according to your preferences), using SmartyPants.
    • Wraps multiple capital letters with <span class=\"caps\">CAPS</span>.
    • Wraps initial quotation marks with <span class=\"quo\"></span> or <span class=\"dquo\"></span>.
    • Adds a css style sheet that uses the <span> tags to substitute a showy ampersand in headlines, switch caps to small caps, and hang initial quotation marks.
  • Lines and paragraphs are automatically recognized. The <br /> line break, <p> paragraph and </p> close paragraph tags are inserted automatically. If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines.
  • Paging Help

    Break long pages into smaller ones by means of a page break tag (e.g. <!--pagebreak-->):

    First page here.
    <!--pagebreak-->
    Second page here.
    <!--pagebreak-->
    More pages here.

    Automatic page breaking based on character or word count is also supported.

  • Quoted content can be placed between [quote] tags in order to be displayed as an indented quote. Every [quote] tag must have a corresponding [/quote] tag. For example:

    [quote]This is a simple quote.[/quote]
    is displayed as:

    Quote:
    This is a simple quote.

    Additionally, there is an optional attribute which allows quotes to specify the original author.

    [quote=Mr. Drupal]This is a quote with an attribution line.[/quote]
    is displayed as:

    Mr. Drupal wrote:
    This is a quote with an attribution line.

    Finally, multiple [quote] tags can be nested within one another. Just remember that every [quote] tag must have a corresponding [/quote] tag.

    [quote]I think she says it best...
    [quote=Ms. Quotation]This is a quote nested within another quote.[/quote]
    but you can't argue with
    [quote=Ms. Reply]The more quotes, the merrier.
    Just don't get too carried away.[/quote]
    And I have nothing more to say.[/quote]
    is displayed as:

  • Spike Heels Stage Play

    CHICAGO – If you can remember the 1990s outside of childhood, you are in the glow of middle age, so congratulations. The Brown Paper Box Co. theater ensemble takes us back to those thrilling days of yesteryear with “Spike Heels,” a relationship comedy centering on the co-mingling antics of two couples, with a slight nod toward George Bernard Shaw and the play “Pygmalion” (or its musical counterpart, “My Fair Lady”).

  • Book of Merman, The

    CHICAGO – One potential theater-goer loves the “The Book of Mormon.” The other would rather stay home and watch old Ethel Merman YouTube videos. Pride Films & Theater offers the ultimate solution by combining both in a campy musical, “The Book of Merman.” Yep, two Elder characters from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints meets foghorn singer Ethel Merman.
