Markdown Tutorial

Markdown is a way to style text on the web so you control the display of your content; formatting words as bold or italic, adding images, embeds and creating lists are just a few of the things you can do with Markdown on Music Glue.

Lists

Numbered lists

Any number (followed by a full stop and space):

1. Ordered list item 2. Ordered list item 3. Ordered list item

Bulleted lists

Create a bulleted list by using an asterisk (*) followed by a space:

* Bulleted list item * Bulleted list item * Bulleted list item

 

Embeds

Embed your Spotify or Souncloud players, Youtube and Vimeo videos.
Follow these easy steps.

 

Horizontal rules

You can add a thematic break which will be represented by a dividing line when exported to HTML. To do so, add three or more hyphens on a line by themselves. For example:

---

 

Links

Create a link by surrounding the link text in square brackets, followed immediately by the URL in parentheses:

[text to link](http://example.com/)

 

Images

You can also add images in the same way links, but with a ! before:

![alt text for image](http://example.com/image.jpg)

 

“Escaping” formatting characters

If you want to type a formatting character and have it treated as text, type a backslash first. For example:

\*bold text*
