Basic HTML

  • Allowed HTML tags: <a href hreflang> <em> <strong> <cite> <blockquote cite> <code> <ul type> <ol start type> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <h2 id> <h3 id> <h4 id> <h5 id> <h6 id> <p> <br> <span> <img src alt height width data-entity-type data-entity-uuid data-align data-caption> <drupal-entity data-entity-type data-entity-uuid data-view-mode data-entity-embed-display data-entity-embed-display-settings data-align data-caption data-embed-button>

  • You can align images, videos, blockquotes and so on to the left, right or center. Examples:

    • Align an image to the left: <img src="" data-align="left" />
    • Align an image to the center: <img src="" data-align="center" />
    • Align an image to the right: <img src="" data-align="right" />
    • … and you can apply this to other elements as well: <video src="" data-align="center" />
  • You can caption images, videos, blockquotes, and so on. Examples:

    • <img src="" data-caption="This is a caption" />
    • <video src="" data-caption="The Drupal Dance" />
    • <blockquote data-caption="Dries Buytaert">Drupal is awesome!</blockquote>
    • <code data-caption="Hello world in JavaScript.">alert("Hello world!");</code>
  • Web page addresses and email addresses turn into links automatically.
  • You can embed entities. Additional properties can be added to the embed tag like data-caption and data-align if supported. Example:

    <drupal-entity data-entity-type="node" data-entity-uuid="07bf3a2e-1941-4a44-9b02-2d1d7a41ec0e" data-view-mode="teaser" />
