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.

CUT TO:

FRANK

running out of the bathroom.

FRANK

There are bees in the toilet!
[ /scrippet ]

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

Frequently Asked Questions

MEEP! It’s not formatting correctly. What do I do?

First, please make sure you are inputting the text in the right format. (Line spacing is important!)

However, if you’re doing it right and it’s still not looking right, please go to scrippets.org for troubleshooting help or to submit a bug report.

The Scrippets are formatted correctly, but the style of the box doesn’t fit in with my blog design. What can I do?

The Scrippets settings panel in your WordPress administrator’s page has several settings that you can change to better suit your blog’s design.

However, if those options are insufficient, you can modify the scrippets.css file in wp-scrippets plugin folder. Be advised that updates to the Scrippets plugin will overwrite your changes, so you should back them up and remember to add them back in whenever the plugin gets updated.
