Getting Started

Everything on 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


(horizontal rule):

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

Header 1

Header 2

Header 3

  1. Numbered
  2. List

Bold and Italic and Code text



(horizontal rule): 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!
