News Post Autolinks & Autotags 

Autolinks provide tags (called autotags) to link to objects under a plugin's control. For example:

[staticpage:svn Learn all about the glFusion SVN... will be displayed as this link: Learn all about the glFusion SVN, and it will link to the Static Page with an ID of svn.

Autolinks can be disabled globally, see Disable Autolinks in the Configuration section.

Autotags supported by a standard installation of glFusion are:
