Special support for Creole

Your Bitbucket Cloud wiki's support for the Creole syntax is fully compatible with the Creole 1.0 specification. For reference, see this page from WikiCreole and this page from Wikipedia (which includes table syntax).   

Bitbucket Cloud macros for Creole

Bitbucket wikis support Markdown, Creole, reStructuredText, and Textile syntax; The Bitbucket macros work only in wikis that use the Creole markup language.  The macro format is a single keyword surrounded by bracket characters:


See Macro Reference for Creole Markup for a list of the macros and their syntax.  Or checkout the cheat sheet created by Tom Roche, a Bitbucket user.
