The shortcode has three attributes that it supports:

  • id: This is the ID of the event.
  • type: This attribute accepts the following values board, event, timeline, post, article
  • theme: This is the theme id for the embed or thread id for article embeds.


[scribble src="/board/1234/4567" ]

Where can I get an API key from?

The API key can be obtained from the ScribbleLive API page.

Is it possible to set nofollow on external links?

Yes, the nofollow attribute mode setting allows advanced SEO controls for internal and external links. Below is a breakdown for each value’s function:

A. Do not set: This function would ignore the regex and none of the links are manipulated.
B. Whitelist: All links will have rel=nofollow with the exception of links that matched against the regex rule provided in addition to relative and current site’s domain links.

What is the nofollow REGEX Rule field use for?

This field contains the regex rule used to test against. A generic regex example for multiple domains can be:

Do we need to set current sites domain in the white list regex?

No, current site domain is automatically added to the nofollow white list.
