onchange refers only to values typed in by the user

variable names can only use letters, not numerals or special characters…


Expand/Collapse sbrewer Wed, 10/26/2011 - 17:51

Here's an example for building collapsible links. Note that you have to also switch from markdown to full-html to make it work.

Always put the javascript code on the page with the drop-downs.

Copy this code:

Then change Goatweasel to the title of the expandable section.

To create a footnote in Markdown, add a number inside the square brackets followed by a caret symbol [^].

At the bottom, repeat the square brackets, caret, number, but follow with a colon, then the footnote text [^]:

Images With Links

To create an image with a link, create an image and then surround it with the usual link syntax.

Or, create a link and then insert the image syntax where the text would usually go.

Inserting an Image -Cartoon style

Inserting an Image -Cartoon style margaret Mon, 10/24/2011 - 16:09


Like a normal link, an image is created in two steps. The first step is to insert the image alt text and a reference id at the position desired within your content. The second step is to add the remainder of the image information at the bottom of Markdown entry. Here's an example:

This is my content and I want to display our website logo.

![BPALL Logo] [1]

... (more content until we reach the bottom of this entry) ...

[1]: <a href=""></a> "Berwyn Paoli Area Little League!"

In the first step, I typed the image alt text enclosed by square brackets, a space and then the reference id (a unique number also enclosed by square brackets). It's just like the first step in the link process. Or is it? Look at the start of the entry. There is an exclamation point right before the first square bracket. You need that exclamation point for the image to appear.

In the second step, I typed the reference id followed by a colon, a space, the image url, another space and the image title (the text that pops up when you hover over the image). Note that the title is enclosed by quotes.

block quotes

block quotes kdorfman Wed, 12/07/2011 - 15:57

First you type the main section of the text.

Then you put a greater than in front of the text to be indented as a block quote. Of course, it doesn't have to actually be a quote - it just has to be text that you want to have set off from the rest.

If you don't put a greater than in front of the next sentence, it will be left justified again.

Two greater than signs

addition calculator

addition calculator kdorfman Fri, 04/21/2023 - 13:58

The + sign juxtaposes the two values, unless they are actual numerals.

So if a.value = 2 and b.value = 3 then a.value + b.value = 23

See calculator below:

Try to add the first and
second numbertogether
the result =

But 2+3 = 5 if you write the numerals instead of the variable names.

subtraction works:
a.value - b.value = -1

You can cheat, as in this second calculator:
result.value = (- firstnumber.value - secondnumber.value) * -1

Not sure how to do plain old addition

Try to add the first and
second numbertogether
the result =
