How to Use Markdown

edited October 2016 in Feedback and Questions

This site uses Markdown for formatting. You can add code, image links, site links, etc. using Markdown . We will post a few examples here but please check that link to see all you can do.

Posting Code Examples

To post code in a paragraph, use backticks

your paragraph `put your code` continues here.

To post code blocks, use 4 spaces or three backticks to wrap the code as normal markdown works.

Posting Links

To post a link, you just need to format it like this:

This is [BryZar]( "BryZar Support") inline link with a title attribute.

[BryZar]( has no title attribute.

This is how those would look:
This is BryZar inline link with a title attribute.

BryZar has no title attribute.

To link to articles and thing directly on our (not our main site as it is different) you just need to do it like this:

See our [Terms](/home/termsofservice/) page for details. Which produces this Terms .

Inserting Images

To insert an image, you would first need to have loaded it someplace such as Dropbox or wherever else you might want. Once you have a link to the image, use the following code:

![Alt text](/path/to/img.jpg "Optional title") if you want a title for it. If not:
![Alt text](/path/to/img.jpg)

Which looks like the following when we put our image link in:
avatar test image

**Note that to use a link from Dropbox you need to change it. After you copy the public Dropbox link to your clipboard, just change ?dl=0 to ?raw=1 at the end of the URL.

  • Is it like BBCode?
    I'm much more adept at coding HTML. But can learn.
