5 More Markdown Codes to Learn Today!

5 More Markdown Codes to Learn Today!

These are 5 more Markdown codes that you need to know in addition of the 5 I have shown you in my previous post.

Learn with me about blockquotes, inline code, ordered lists, linking images and horizontal lines.

1) Blockquotes

This is very easy to make blockquotes with Markdown code, but many people seem to have trouble quoting text. Just use the sign > and that's it.

Markdown code:

*As the Dalai Lama said:*

> Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
> If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

This is the result:

As the Dalai Lama said:

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

2) Inline code

Sometimes you may need to include computer code like HTML in your post to explain something and this is done using back ticks ` around the code.

Markdown code:

If you want to bold text in *HTML* use the
`<b> </b>` tags.

This is the result:

If you want to bold text in HTML use the
<b> </b> tags.

You can also use it just to have an effect with this gray box around words.

Markdown code:

My first name is `Michel` and last name `Gerard`.

This is the result:

My first name is Michel and last name Gerard.

3) Ordered Lists

Making a list of ordered items and sub items is very easy with just using numbers and letters.

Markdown code:

1. First item
2. Second item
  a. First sub-item
  b. Second sub-item

This is the result:

  1. First item
  2. Second item
    a. First sub-item
    b. Second sub-item

4) Linking Images

I showed you the Markdown code for images in my previous post and in this section we are going to link the image to a URL. This is a bit more difficult than displaying the image alone, so look at the example below.

Markdown code:

[![Alt Text](image-url)](link-url)

Modify the elements above using an alternate text, the URL of the image you have uploaded in Steemit (or another site), and the URL of the page you want to link to.

[![Fruits & Veggie](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYV1ueetMTbbyuFd8epVRjYZvrjGDHt9T2uNgRhBGeyUy/juice01.jpg)](https://steemit.com/life/@gmichelbkk/my-two-juice-recipes-of-the-day)

This is the result, the image is clickable:

Fruits & Veggie

5) Horizontal Lines

There are three ways you can make horizontal lines using the asterisk * , the hyphen - and the underscore _.

Markdown code:

Line 1 using 3 asterisks:
***
Line 2 using 3 hyphens:
---
Line 3 using 3 underscores:
___

This is the result:

Line 1 using 3 asterisks:


Line 2 using 3 hyphens:


Line 3 using 3 underscores:

Great tutorial. DO you by any change know how to make blocks with markdown code? I am looking for a way to split a image and text in a block, so that you have the text on the right and left from the text the image. I makes a much nicer layout, but I don't know if that is possible?

Thank you @verhp11 for your kind comment. I have seen it, but the code has css and I don't know if Steemit supports it. I will do some tests and include that in my next post if I find out.
