Syntax and usage

This template is used to post a message (item) on the Bulletin board, and it can also be used to post items on talk pages.

To post a message in an existing topic, such as:

Looking for works in Quenya[edit]

simply click on the blue edit link, go to the last posted message in the topic, start a new line, and use the Template:ItemPost in the format (note the new syntax):

{{ItemPost
|by=<your name & date>
|text=<your message>
}}

The easiest way to sign and date your message is to type four tildes (~~~~) for <your name & date>. Thus, for example, typing

{{ItemPost
|by=~~~~
|text=
Here is a sample message
spread
over
several lines.<br>

It even has more than one paragraph.
}}

resulted in:

N.B. The old syntax for Template:ItemPost still works but is now deprecated in favor of the new syntax, which allows for nested replies using Template:Reply.
