Hello World!

Welcome! This is the automatically created first post on your new blog. You can type Markdown into the content editor to format your content. This system uses Parsedown internally, a very fast Markdown parser/transformer library written in PHP!

In this post you can see several examples to format your content with Markdown and especially how to use the customizable content functions provided by this blogging system. After you are familiar with the text formatting and done with the exploration of your new blogging system, you can delete this post and create your own one. 😃

How to cross-reference items in your content?

If you want to reference another item (e.g. a post or a category) in your content, please do not put the URL to it hard coded into the editor. Consider what happens if you change your blog's address (or just the base directory) in the future. You would need to change all the hard coded URLs in your content which is inflexible and not cool. Therefore, you can use the following so-called content functions to link an item or a resource of your installation dynamically within your content.


Reference another post:

Hello there! Check out this post: »Hello World!«


Reference a category with customized link text:

Hello there! Check out the demo category!

How to dynamically link to other resources?

You can link any other resource (e.g. a file) which is located anywhere within your document root dynamically, either relative to your base directory (the installation directory) or relative to the rsrc directory where you store your files, images and other stuff. The BASE_URL and FILE_URL content functions will return the pure plain text URL (extended by the first argument).
