Jeff Elpern


A macro is an advanced markup instruction for KnowledgeBase pages. A macro can be as simple as adding a line break or as complex as a complete program that returns a result to the page.

A macro is enclosed within double brackets - [[BR]]. A macro can also have attributes - [[YouTube(4XpnKHJAok8)]] to embed a YouTube player with a specific video in a page.
