Wiki tags are XML-Tags which can be customized by parameters to get a certain output. If you use the "Bookshelf-tag", for example, then the article will contain a index of the book the article belongs to with links for each chapter.

Tips for working with tags

In both the WYSIWYG and the wikicode editor you will find a tool named InsertMagic. You can use the dropdown menu to have a look at the description of tags and you can insert the tag into an article by clicking "ok".
Note: You only can see the tags in the wikicode editor! If you use the WYSIWYG editor you will just see a normal word that is highlighted in light blue.

BlueSpice includes the following tags, among others:

Parser extension: Description Example
<bs:booklist> Generates a list of articles from the book name space. Filterable. <bs:booklist filter="someMeta:Some|anotherMeta:Val"/>
<bs:bookmeta> Tag for saving arbitrary meta information with a book article. The data is included in the book <bs:bookmeta someMeta="Some Value" anotherMeta="Another Value"/>
<bs:bookshelf> Insert the navigation menu by chapter of a book. <bs:bookshelf src="Book:User handbook wiki" float="right"/>
<bs:infobox> Creates an infobox with, for example, the last pages released <infobox mode="flaggedrevisions" ns="502" count="7"/>
see EDEKA-Wiki:Administration Extension infobox
<bs:newbies> The magic work hwnewbies lists the newest users. One inserts this in an article like this:

X can take a value between 1 and 100. If nothing is given for X, the newest 10 users will be shown.
<bs:pagesvisited> Show the pages visited wherever you want You can add the function to a normal wiki page (for example on your start page) by using the following tag:

<pagesvisited count="7" maxtitlelength="40" />

<bs:statistics:progress> Generates a progress bar whose value depends upon the appearance of a given text found in the body and an upper limit defined by the user. <bs:statistics:progress basecount="200" progressitem="OK" width="150" />

Generates a 150 pixel wide progress bar which will display a value of 75% when the word "OK" appears 150 times in the body of the article (200 times would then show 100%).
<bs:universalexport:exclude> Alias for <bs:universalexport:noexport>
<bs:universalexport:excludearticle> This tag is only designated for system-internal use. At the moment it has no function.
<bs:universalexport:hidetitle> Disables the export of article headings. <bs:uehidetitle />
<bs:universalexport:meta> Allows giving arbitrary meta data which appears in the export document independently of which export template is used. Depending on the export backend, this data may also be included in the meta data of the export document. At the moment, this is generally used system-internally. <bs:universalexport:meta Department="Finance" Security-level="5" />
<bs:universalexport:noexport> leaves out the area/contents marked by the tag when exporting <bs:uenoexport>Not included in export</bs:uenoexport>
<bs:universalexport:pagebreak> forces a page break at the point of the tag <bs:uepagebreak />
<bs:universalexport:params> Similar to <bs:universalexport:meta>. However, the data affects the export itself. There, for example an export template can be chosen. This tag is also generally for system-internal use at the moment. <bs:universalexport:params template="BlueSpice Landscape" />
<bs:watchlist> Your watchlist gives you a handy overview of the changes to an individually chosen collection of pages. WatchList
