Recently, I have been spending time on Plurk. First of all, It is a time well spent because I can interact with other people and I get ideas for new posts. Also I get to have some fun time. When I started with Plurk, I didn’t know how to do alot of things such as making a URL, or referring to someone. Making the text italics, or bold. Well I asked a question on Plurk, and found that someone already have wrote a guide.
I think it won’t hurt to have something on my blog like that as well, so next time I won’t be searching for a guide, I will directly visit my own site, and my readers will see it here as well. First of all fellas, if you want to make connections with other webmasters and bloggers.
Once you have joined Plurk, then you would use these guides below.
Inserting a URL in your Plurk
Just type in the format like this http://www.balkhis.com (Balkhis) so basically url.com (anchor text), and this will get you a text link.
Referring to a specific username
Alot of times when you plurk, two people ask you two different questions, so you would need to specify the answer to each of them, so just add @username so @balkhis will directly link to that user which means that you are referring to that user.
Making the Text Bold
Put double asteriks around a word will make it bold. So simply just put **Balkhis** will make it bold.
Italicizing the Text
Wrap around the text in one asterik. For example *Balkhis* will make the text italicized.
Underlining the Text
Use double underscore before and after the word. So make it __Balkhis__ will make the word underlined.
To show video
Just enter the url and plurk, and it will show a thumbnail.
