How To Format Text Using Textile & Practice Thread

Discussion in Chat


Rebecca Gabrielle Cannon said 2 years ago

At the moment our website uses ‘Textile’ to format text.

The full reference is here http://redcloth.org/hobix.com/textile/

In summary, you can use Textile to add headings, italics, links, bold text etc.

Feel free to use this thread to ask questions and to practice your formatting.

Ok we’ve found an issue with the links, if you use curly double quotation marks the links won’t work. It has to be the straight double quotation marks. The specific keys you need to use will vary depending on your keyboard and operating system.
