Getting Started

Everything on Write.as is based around plain text. Formatting happens with text; adding images happens with text. Even embedding videos and other multimedia happens with text.

In short, we use a special kind of standard syntax called Markdown that lets you format text (like I just did) with a few special characters. Here's what it looks like:

# Header 1
## Header 2
### Header 3

* Bulleted
* List

1. Numbered
2. List

**Bold** and _Italic_ and `Code` text

(horizontal rule):

If you put that in the Write.as editor and press publish, you'll see this:

Header 1

Header 2

Header 3

  1. Numbered
  2. List

Bold and Italic and Code text

Link

Write.as also does its best to support the exact spacing you put in your posts.

So you can freely add new lines.

And even get creative with your s p a c i n g

Our goal is to be as intuitive as possible, using that thing your already have your hands on — your keyboard. Don't be afraid to try out different things and see how they work!
