Using Markdown for Formatting Content

Markdown is a markup language that allows you to format plain text and convert it to HTML.

To apply Markdown, add Markdown syntax to the text to indicate the words and phrases for which the formatting must be applied. By default, you are adding text in Write mode. After applying Markdown, you can click Preview to view the text in HTML format.

Markdown Syntax Examples

To make a phrase bold, add two asterisks before and after the phrase. When you render the page to HTML, the text will be displayed in bold.

To denote a word or phrase as code, enclose it in tick marks (`).

code

To create code blocks, use three ticks before and after the code. code-block

To embed images, drag and drop the images, or select and paste the images. The images are uploaded and the Markdown code for the uploaded images are displayed in the Write mode. You can embed images such as JPEG, GIF, or PNG files. The file size must not exceed 2 MB. Click Preview to view the rendered image in HTML format. The embedded images are displayed in the Attachments section.

If you delete the code in Write mode, then to re-embed the image, click the Copy (image file name) as Markdown icon (as shown in the following video). This copies the Markdown for re-embedding the image to clipboard. Paste the code in the text box. The code to embed the image is displayed. Click Preview to view the rendered image.

To delete the image, in Attachments section, click the X icon for the image. copy-as-markdown
