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 page contains an index of the book the article belongs to with links for each chapter.

Tips for working with tags

Some of these tags can be inserted using VisualEditor. Go to Insert > Magic words and select the magic word you want to use. If you don't see the tag listed, switch to source editing mode and insert the tag there. You can always find the list of all parser tags in your BlueSpice installation on the page Special:Version, in the section Parser Extension Tags.

Common tags

Parser extension Description Example
<bs:booklist> Generates a list of pages from the namespace Book. Filterable. <bs:booklist filter="someMeta:Some|anotherMeta:Val" />
<bs:bookmeta> Tag for saving arbitrary meta information with a book apage. The data is included in the book. <bs:bookmeta someMeta="Some Value" anotherMeta="Another Value" />
<bs:bookshelf> Insert a navigation menu by chapters 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"/>
<bs:newbies> 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> Lists the user's last visited pages. 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. The value depends on 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 arbitrary meta data 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:uemeta body-class=classname-here /> Allows PDF-specific styling of page elements <bs:uemeta body-class=bg-grey no-header-image />
<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" />
