Markdown Formatting test/explanations

24.5k Skua  3.0 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

Other heading 4


#Heading 1
##Heading 2
###Heading 3
####Heading 4
#####Heading 5
######Heading 6
Other heading 1
======
Other heading 2
=
Other heading 3

Other heading 4

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.

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

    After a month, it's time to answer that question that you asked. 'How do I remove the Heading One?'
    Well

    Test

    You only type #
    You don't type #Heading 1 test

    By more than 1h. I mean write something using the #Heading 1 font. Then send the exact same message but add a space at the very front of the message, so that I can see how you do it. (@Spectre2520

    I’m really confused by how you are saying it. I beat your reaction time by how many mins? @ChallengerHellcat

    Just type out something with heading one, and repost the message by adding an extra space at the front so it doesn't work and I could see how It works @Spectre2520
