“Secret” Formating

There are some “secret” way to format text you entered in Plurk. “Secret” because it doesn’t seem like they are documented anywhere in Plurk’s website or FAQs.

Anyway, here they are.

  • Creating a link to a user page. Write @ followed by the username without space.
    Example: @satebabi will give you satebabi
    Note: even if the user has changed his/her nickname, using their old/initial nickname will automatically convert the text and link to their new nick. ;-)
  • Creating text with link. Write the url then followed by (Your Text) with a space.
    Example: http://www.youtube.com (Watch Movie) will result Watch Movie
    You can also just write youtube.com and it will come out as youtube.com
    Note: you don’t have to write the http:// part
  • Some text-formating.
    Bold text is done by putting two asterisks at the start and the end of the sentence.
    Example: **bold text** will come out as **bold text**
    Italic text is done by putting single asterisks at the start and the end of the sentence.
    Example: *italic text* will come out as *italic text*
    Underlined text us done by putting two underscores at the start and the end of the sentence.
    Example: __underscored text__ will come out as __underscored text__
    And one more formatting is done by putting ` at the start and the end of the sentence. The result? Try it :-P
    Emoticon codes still work within this formating.
    Note: this formatting won’t work if you put any punctuation marks, emoticon, or spaces in the beginning or the end of the sentence.
    Example: __?invalid__ or __invalid?__ or __(s_dance)dance__ or __ dance__
  • Creating thumbnail of images of youtube video. Just put the url and Plurk will automatically generate the thumbnail with link.

Happy Plurkin!
