MarkDown Tips

In text areas of your website, you can use text MarkDown within fields noted with the MarkDown icon at the top right of the text field.

This would display your content using the MarkDown code. You can display headings, emphasis, links, lists and more all from within a text area using the standard MarkDown text code.

Within custom collections, you can print form variables in several ways:

{{ devotional.content|raw|nl2br }}    -- Output would render html, and line breaks would be preserved as vertical space in the output.

{{ devotional.content|markdown }}    -- Output would show the MarkDown codes properly.



Below are some MarkDown code tips:


Headings: Place a # tag followed by a space before your headings for H1, ## For H2, etc. We suggest you start with ### or #### for in-body content headings.

Emphasis: *makes italics* and _makes italics_. **makes bold** and __makes bold__. ~~two tildes makes strike-through~~.

Links: To create a link within markdown you put the link in brackets like this example: [The Best CMS on the Market!](

Lists: Unordered lists can start with *, +, or - followed by a space and then the list item. Ordered lists can start with a number: 1. followed by a space and then the list item.
