Steemit uses standard formatting of sorts called "Markdown" and its SO SIMPLE to use!


Lets start with Titles:

The above "Lets start with Titles" uses the # symbol (hold down shift and the number 3 on your keyboard).

In order to create title or "header" text you simply start with 1-6 #'s before the word followed by a space, then the word. Example:

# Words Here

Result:

Words Here

All the way up to 6 #'s
###### Words Here

Result:

Words Here

The more #'s the smaller the title/header will be.


Images:

Simple! Simply upload your image to an image hosting service like imgur.com, grab the "direct link" or similar and paste it into your post!

You have two main formatting possibilities:

Direct Link:

http://i.imgur.com/nleQv7A.jpg

Direct Link with title:

![Image Title](http://i.imgur.com/nleQv7A.jpg)

Click to enlarge (How to find direct link with imgur)


Links:

Same as Images except even easier!

Direct Link:

http://www.google.com

Result:

http://www.google.com

Clickable text that links:

Lists:

Wondering how to create:

  • This list
  • That looks like this?
    • Maybe even with a sublist?
  • Wonderful right?

or

  1. A numbered list
    • Maybe even with a a sublist?
  2. Like this?

Like most markdown, once you know it, its SUPER easy. Here is the code used for the lists above.

* This list
* That looks like this?
  * Maybe even with a sublist?
* Wonderful right?

* followed by 1 space then words
The indented sub list is: 2 spaces, then *, then space, then words.

and

1. A numbered list
   * Maybe even with a a sublist?
2. Like this?

(Number), followed by a period, followed buy 1 space then words
The indented sub list is: 4 spaces, then *, then space, then words.

Dividers:

OMG so simple!

Try it!


Bold and Italics:

YAY!

This is bold

**This is bold**

This is italic

_This is italic_

This is bold & italic

**_This is bold & italic_**

Highlighting:

Ever want to highlight something mid sentence?

For this we use a tick ` (upper left on keyboard)

Ever want to `highlight` something mid sentence?

Highlighting extended:

Want to highlight a paragraph?

4 spaces then the sentence or word!

Example:

    Hello World!
    Today we are discussing Markdown!

Result:

Hello World!
Today we are discussing Markdown!

Quoting:

Markdown to the rescue again with the > symbol! (Its to the right of the M key, hold down shift)

Example:

> Markdown to the rescue again!

Result:

Markdown to the rescue again!


And these are just the basics! It gets a whole lot more interesting! If you liked this post then keep an eye out for part 2!
