Markdown is a lightweight text formatting syntax. Markdown is often used to format messages in online discussion forums and we've chosen it at Hive as a syntax that will let you format your contest descriptions.
Paragraphs are separated by a blank line. Starting text on a new line will not start a paragraph unless there is a fully blank line between it and any previous text. Non-paragraph line breaks can be used by ending a line with two spaces.
Text can be italicized by wrapping it with *single asterisks* or _single underscores_.
Text can be bolded by wrapping it with **double asterisks** or __double underscores__.
Text can be striked by wrapping it with ~~double tildes~~.
We support two sizes of headers. Headers can be achieved by writing a # single hash or ## double hash on a new line as follows:
# This is the largest header
## This is the second-largest header
Markdown supports two types of lists. To make an ordered list, start a line with a number followed by a period. To make an unordered list, start a line with '-' and then a space.
- Ordered list item #1
- Ordered list item #2
- Ordered list item #3
- Unordered list item #1
- Unordered list item #2
- Unordered list item #3
Links can be written using the following syntax:
You can create a horizontal line with a paragraph with 3 or more dashes ('-').
Some content before a horizontal line
