[list] is equivalent to [ul] (unordered list).
[ol] can be used instead of [list] to show an ordered list:
[*] First list element
[*] Second list element
<ul class="listdecimal" style="list-style-type: decimal;"><li> First list element<br></li><li> Second list element</li></ul>
For more options on ordered lists, you can define the style of numeration on [list] argument:
<pre>[list=1]</pre> : decimal
<pre>[list=i]</pre> : lover case roman
<pre>[list=I]</pre> : upper case roman
<pre>[list=a]</pre> : lover case alphabetic
<pre>[list=A] </pre> : upper case alphabetic
You can embed video, audio and more in a message.
Where *url* can be an url to youtube, vimeo, soundcloud, or other sites wich supports oembed or opengraph specifications.
*url* can be also full url to an ogg file. HTML5 tag will be used to show it.
If *url* supports oembed or opengraph specifications the embedded object will be shown (eg, documents from scribd).
Page title with a link to *url* will be shown.
If you need to put literal bbcode in a message, [noparse], [nobb] or [pre] are used to escape bbcode:
<pre>[noparse][b]bold[/b][/noparse]</pre> : [b]bold[/b]

Friendica Installation
We've tried very hard to ensure that Friendica will run on commodity hosting platforms - such as those used to host Wordpress blogs and Drupal websites. But be aware that Friendica is more than a simple web application. It is a complex communications system which more closely resembles an email server than a web server. For reliability and performance, messages are delivered in the background and are queued for later delivery when sites are down. This kind of functionality requires a bit more of the host system than the typical blog. Not every PHP/MySQL hosting provider will be able to support Friendica. Many will. But **please** review the requirements and confirm these with your hosting provider prior to installation.

Friendica Addon/Plugin development
Please see the sample addon 'randplace' for a working example of using some of these features. The facebook addon provides an example of integrating both "addon" and "module" functionality. Addons work by intercepting event hooks - which must be registered. Modules work by intercepting specific page requests (by URL path).

Your module functions will often contain the function plugin_name_content(&$a), which defines and returns the page body content. They may also contain plugin_name_post(&$a) which is called before the _content function and typically handles the results of POST forms. You may also have plugin_name_init(&$a) which is called very early on and often does module initialisation.
**Current hooks:**
If your plugin need some template, you can use Friendica template system. Friendica use [smarty3]( as template engine.
Put your tpl files in *templates/* subfolder of your plugin.
In your code, like in function plugin_name_content(), load template file and execute it passing needed values:
# load template file. first argument is the template name,
# second is the plugin path relative to friendica top folder
$tpl = get_markup_template('mytemplate.tpl', 'addon/plugin_name/');
# apply template. first argument is the loaded template,
# second an array of 'name'=>'values' to pass to template
$output = replace_macros($tpl,array(

You can simply enter your text there and click "Share" button, and your new post will be public on your profile page and shared to your contact.
<i>The different icons</i>
If plain text is not so exciting to you, Friendica understands BBCode to spice up your posts: bold, italic, images, links, lists..
See [BBCode tags reference](help/BBCode) page to see all what you can do.
<img src="doc/img/camera.png" width="44" height="33" alt="editor" align="left" style="padding-bottom: 20px;"> This symbol is used to upload a picture from your computer. If you only want to add an adress (url), you can also use the "tree" icon at the upper part of the editor. After selecting an image, you'll see a thumbnail in the editor.
The icons under the text area are there to help you to write posts quickly:
<img src="doc/img/camera.png" width="32" height="32" alt="editor" align="left" style="padding-bottom: 20px;"> Upload a picture from your computer. The image will be uploaded and correct bbcode tag will be added to your post.
<p style="clear:both;"></p>
<img src="doc/img/paper_clip.png" width="44" height="33" alt="paper_clip" align="left"> This symbol is used to add files from your computer. There'll be no preview of the content.
<img src="doc/img/paper_clip.png" width="32" height="32" alt="paper_clip" align="left"> Add files from your computer. Same as picture, but for generic attachment to the post.
<p style="clear:both;"></p>
<img src="doc/img/chain.png" width="44" height="33" alt="chain" align="left"> This symbol is used to add a web address (url). You'll see a short preview of the website.
<img src="doc/img/chain.png" width="32" height="32" alt="chain" align="left"> Add a web address (url). Enter an url and Friendica will add to your post a link to the url and an excerpt from the web site, if possible
<p style="clear:both;"></p>

**<img src="doc/img/lock.png" width="32" height="32" alt="lock icon" style="vertical-align:middle;"> The lock**
The last button, the Lock, is the most important feature in Friendica. If the lock is open, your post will be public, and will shows up on your profile page when strangers visit it.
Click on it and the *Permission settings* window (aka "*Access Control Selector*" or "*ACL Selector*") pops up. There you can select who can see the post.

<figcaption>Permission settings window with some contact selected</figcaption>
Click on "show" under contact name to hide the post to everyone but selected.
Click on "Visible to everybody" to make the post public again.
If you have defined some groups, you can check "show" for groups also. All contact in that group will see the post.
If you want to hide the post to one contact of a group selected for "show", click "don't show" under contact name.
Click again on "show" or "don't show" to switch it off.
You can search for contacts or groups with the search box.
