Markdown Support

Markdown is used in the platform to create formatted text using a plain-text editor. Instead of learning or using HTML, we allow users in the Dashboard apply customized headings, lists, links, and text as outlined in the tips provided below. The majority of text fields visible on the Booking Site are markdown supported.

Markdown Tips


Paragraphs in Markdown are just one or more lines of consecutive text followed by one or more blank lines.

This is a second paragraph


# The largest heading (an h1 tag)

## The second largest heading (an h2 tag)

###### The 6th largest heading (an h6 tag)


You can indicate blockquotes with a >

> like this

Styling text

*This text will be italic*

**This text will be bold**

Both bold and italic can use either a * or an _ around the text for styling. This allows you to combine both bold and italic if needed.

**Everyone _must_ attend the meeting at 5 o’clock today.**


Unordered List

You can make an unordered list by preceding list items with either a * or a -.

* item 1

* item 2

– item 1

– item 2

Ordered List

You can make an ordered list by preceding list items with a number.

1. item 1

2. item 2

Nested List

You can create nested lists by indenting list items by two spaces.

1. Item 1

1. A corollary to the above item.

2. Yet another point to consider.

2. Item 2

* A corollary that does not need to be ordered.

* This is indented two spaces.

Code formatting

Inline formats

Use single backticks (`) to format text in a special monospace format. Everything within the backticks appear as-is, with no other special formatting.

`project x`

Multiple Lines

To produce a code block in Markdown, simply indent every line of the block by at least 4 spaces or 1 tab.

You can also use triple backticks to format text as its own distinct block.

x = 0
x = x + 1
what is x


You can create an inline link by wrapping link text in brackets ( [ ] ), and then wrapping the link in parentheses ( ( ) ).

[Periodic is great!](


Reference-style links use a second set of square brackets, inside which you place a label of your choosing to identify the link:

This is [an example][id] reference-style link.

Then, anywhere in the document (usually at the end), you define your link label like this, on a line by itself:

[id]: “Optional Title Here”
