WP Scrippets

This plugin converts text entered in the Scrippet format to properly styled HTML.


To include a Scrippet in your WordPress blog simply include text in the following format:

[scrippet] INT. HOUSE - DAY

MARY yells across the hall to FRANK.

MARY Anything you want to tell me?

FRANK (O.S.) I swear, honey, I don't know how mayonnaise got in the piano.



running out of the bathroom.

FRANK (terrified) There are bees in the toliet! [/scrippet]

Note: Scrippet text must be wrapped in [scrippet][/scrippet] blocks, and it must have correct line spaces between screenplay elements.

You can make text bold, italic, or underlined by in the following ways:


  • Wrap the text in double asterisks (bold) or [b][/b].


  • Wrap the text in single asterisks (italic) or [i][/i].


  • Wrap the text in underscores (underline) or [u][/u].

Please note: text styling does not work for transitions. Sorry.
