What is markdown?

Markdown is how all user-inputted content is formatted on litphoria. It is lightweight syntax based on how e-mails have been written for ages, and even how some people marked-up roleplays in chat rooms after that.

Here's a pocket guide to using markdown. If you scroll down, there's also a limited bbcode to markdown converter, if you're coming from forums or other sites which utilize that.

  • Bold: **text** -> text
  • Italic: *text* -> text
  • Bold Italic: ***text*** -> text
  • Monospace: `text` -> text
  • Strikethrough: <s>text</s> -> text
  • Superscript: <sup>text</sup> -> text
  • Subscript: <sub>text</sub> -> text
  • HorizontalRule * * * ->
  • Lists:
    * thing 1
    * thing 2
    * thing 3
    * thing 4
    Notice the space between the asterisk and thing 1. No space between text and thing 1 would result in italics. A list must be preceeded by a blank line if text comes before it.
    • thing 1
    • thing 2
    • thing 3
    • thing 4
  • Headers: # Huge, ## Large, ### Medium-Large, #### Medium-Small, ##### Small, ###### Tiny





  • Quoting: >text ->
  • Spacing: With markdown (and html in general), a single line break will not be preserved. If you want a line break, you can either use two (so that there is a blank line between your text), or follow your line break with two spaces.
  • Escaping: Any markdown syntax can be arbitrarily escaped by a backslash: \. Thus, \>:( will result in >:(, not a quote box with just :( in it.
