What is markdown?

Markdown is a way to style text on the web. Formatting words as bold or italic, adding links and creating headers or lists are just a few of the things we can do with markdown. Mostly, markdown is just regular text with a few non-alphabetic characters thrown in, like # or *.


To add headers using markdown, enter a single or double # character and a single space before your title text. For example, # Welcome will generate the following format on your home page welcome text:

If you wish to have a smaller header, use ## Welcome.


To emphasise specific words or sentences, you'll need to add characters to both ends of the text. For italic text use a single * character, for bold text use double ** characters.

For example, the following text will generate bold and italic text for the membership conditions:

Holders of this membership **must** be registered students 
*you may be required to present proof on request*

This will result in the following style:

This will embed an image into your custom page.

Frequently asked questions

This is too hard, why can’t I use an editor instead?

Agreed! We are working on implementing an editor to make this a lot easier. But in the meanwhile, we wanted you to have a way style your text if needed, so consider this a temporary solution.
