blog url              = %%blog_url%%	
blog name             = %%blog_name%%
admin name            = %%admin_name%%
admin email           = %%admin_email%%
user name             = %%user_name%%
user email            = %%user_email%%

post tags             = %%post_tags%%
post id               = %%post_id%%
