Markdown was created to make formatting text as easy and intuitive as possible. Easy to write, easy to read, and easy to edit. What makes markdown so nice to work with is that it consists entirely of punctuation characters, so there is no need to nest and close blocks of HTML code. We take your nicely formatted text, and turn it into html code that the browser then renders on the screen. It is not meant to be the end all and be all of formatting, but only to provide the most useful and basic syntax that can be conveyed in plain text.

We use Parsedown (via {% markdown %}) to create the markup from your markdown in your Blog Posts and Pages. For edge cases and further minutae see also:

The point obviously is to keep things simple. For anything fancy, you can use plain old HTML. The only thing to keep in mind is that block level elements (<div>, <table>, <pre>, <p>, etc.) must:

  • Be separated from surrounding content by blank lines (just like another paragraph)
  • Open and close on newlines with no indented tabs or spaces

Any markdown text within the block level elements will be ignored, ie. not marked up.
