Testing formatting options

Note on formatting
Discourse, uses a flavor of Markdown for formatting. You may learn more about Markdown here:
https://superuser.com/editing-help

Bold, italics, etc

For bold, italics and strike-through use the editor buttons image or directly type the markdown:

Markdown (aka hard mode)

**bold word** or __bold word__
*italicized word* or _italicized word_
_combo of **bold** and **italic**_
~~strike-through word~~
<sup>this a superscript</sup><sub>this a subscript</sub>


bold word or bold word
italicized word or italicized word
combo of bold and italic
strike-through word
this a superscriptthis a subscript

You may also use some BBCode syntax
[b]like this[/b] like this
[i]or this[/i] or this
[u]underline[/u] underline

I don’t think there’s native support for font color. Will update this if I find it.

Headings

Markdown

# H1
## H2
### H3
#### H4
##### H5
###### H6

horizontal rule is 3+ asterisks or dashes
***

Lists

There are editor buttons for ordered and unordered lists.

Markdown

1. First ordered list item
2. second list item
   * sub-lists are offset by three spaces
1. Auto-increment works 
1. even if you just use
1. the same number

* bullet lists
* or unordered lists are also possible
* just use an *
* instead of a number 
  1. First ordered list item
  2. Explicit second list item
    • sub-lists are offset by three spaces
  3. Auto-increment works
  4. even if you just use
  5. the same number
  • unordered lists
  • are also possible
  • just use an *
  • instead of a number

Tables

You can add tables in Discourse but it can be a bit of a pain.

Markdown

|Color|Weight|Height|
|-|-|-|
|red|12|160|
|green|4|100|

Output

Color Weight Height
red 12 160
green 4 100

You can also use HTML for tables if that’s your thing

HTML code

<table>
  <tr>
    <th>Color</th>
    <th>Weight</th>
    <th>Height</th>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>red</td>
    <td>12</td>
    <td>160</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>green</td>
    <td>4</td>
    <td>100</td>
  </tr>
</table>
Color Weight Height
red 12 160
green 4 100

Blockquotes

Blockquotes can be found in the editor bar button image
Puting a greater than sign > in front of a line will create blockquotes
Typing:
> this is some blockquoted text
> this is another line of blockquoted text
this is not blockquoted
> this is another one

will result in:

> this is some blockquoted text
> this is another line of blockquoted text

this is not blockquoted

this is another one


Will add more as soon as I find/remember them. Enjoy! :smiley:
