Here is a complete list of Skrivr's pre defined template tags and functions that you can use when creating your own custom theme.

{{ menu|raw }}
Renders the main menu. See This is how the Skrivr theme works for details on the resulting html.

{{ home }}
Renders the url to your home directory.
Tip! Use {{ home }} when you include images in your posts:
{{ home }}/image/imagename.jpg

{{ body_id }} If you put ID: id-name on the first line in a text-file Skrivr will pick it up and use it as the id of the body-tag for the article. This is very useful when creating custom post designs or adding services like Disqus to your Skrivr site.

{{ body_class }} Adds classes to the body-tag. Gives you more control over the CSS when designing your own themes.

{{ latest_post|raw }}
Picks up and displays the body of the latest post. Can only be used for the main page (index.html). Use this tag as an alternative to {{ post_feed }} when you only want to display the latest post on your main page. To display the headline place {{ headline }} immediately before the {{ latest_post }}.

{{ post_feed }}
Loops through your posts and displays the parts you choose. For example {{ headline }} or {{ body|raw }}. Posts are displayed in chronological order. For code and examples see our Tips and trix articles about the post-feed.

{{ excerpt|raw }}
Renders the first 300 characters of a post. The excerpt tag maintains html in the resulting excerpt text. This is the perfect tag for a category page or for displaying post snippets in a sidebar. For examples see This is how the Skrivr theme works for details on the resulting html.

{{ permalink }}
