Using “Markdown” in Posts

Want to make content in your posts or comments bold, italicized, or strikethrough? Want to add links? You can do so using the standard Markdown syntax,

Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. It is designed so that it can be converted to HTML and other formats (see Wikipedia for more information)

Example Syntax

# headers for headers (use # for h1, ## for h2, ### for h3 etc)
**bold text** for bold text
*italic text* for italic text
`inline code` for inline code
~~strikethrough~~` for strikethrough
[link](` for link
