markdown guide

Have you checked out our editor guide? That should give you some basic markdown examples (the syntax we should to power both articles and comments), along with some special syntax we've created specially for (like embedding videos and other posts).


I have looked at it. I've tried copying and pasting one of the examples and it didn't work. I assume you use this runkit tag...

console.log("Place javascript here!");

But that doesn't seem to work unless I am doing it wrong.


Hello Darell,
I have just come across the same problem!
Fortunately, the usual markdown trick is working just fine!

simply put your code between three backticks #```
