Markdown Formatting test/explanations

24.9k Skua  4.1 years ago

Alright I just wanted to see what actually does and doesn't work in terms of formatting on this site. I'll also add explanations on how to do each one.

A note to anyone reading this: do not abuse the formatting, particularly the headings and in-line images. It just annoys everyone.


Italics, bold, both, italics, bold, both
*Italics*, **bold**, ***both***, _italics_, __bold__, ___both___


Heading 1

Heading 2

Heading 3

Heading 4

Heading 5
Heading 6

Other heading 1

Other heading 2

Other heading 3

quotes

>quotes

other quotes
These are done with backticks, like `this` but trying to get them to show without formatting is difficult.


Block quotes are done
with three backticks in
the lines above and below.


  • bullet point

    1. numbering

    2. and indenting



      • alternative bullet point


      • and more indenting!



  • next bullet point

These apparently don't work in comments.


- bullet point
1. numbering
2. and indenting
* alternative bullet point
* and more indenting!
- next bullet point


This formatting is deleting them, but indenting is done by adding two spaces at the the start
of the line. A double indent is four spaces, and so on.


Section breaks - the horizontal lines I'm using to break this all up - are three underscores in a row.


alt text

Stuff that doesn't work:

  • the less than symbol ( < ) doesn't work if immediately followed by a letter

  • strikethrough and superscript don't work at all

  • tables

  • checklists
