Everything on Write.as/WriteFreely 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 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 [Link](https://writeas.com) ![Image](https://i.snap.as/rICBDh1.png) (horizontal rule): ---
If you put that in the Write.as editor and press publish, you'll see this:
Bold and Italic and
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 you already have your hands on — your keyboard. Don't be afraid to try out different things and see how they work!
