Chat Formatting


Created by: Adam G Wright

On 2015-09-11 Chat was upgraded to include various new formatting features. It now supports markdown formatting similar to what reddit used.

FONT FORMATTING

  • Italics
    • Text can be displayed in an italic font by surrounding a word or words with either single asterisks (*) or single underscores (_).
    • For example:
      • This sentence includes *italic text*.
      • is displayed as: This sentence includes italic text.
  • Bold
    • Text can be displayed in a bold font by surrounding a word or words with either double asterisks (**) or double underscores (__).
    • For example:
      • This sentence includes **bold text**.
      • is displayed as: This sentence includes bold text.
  • Superscript
    • Text can be displayed in superscript font by surrounding a word or words with single carets (^)
    • For example:
      • This sentence includes superscript^text^.
      • is displayed as: This sentence includes superscripttext.
  • Spoilers

    • Spoiler text can be hidden by surrounding a word or words with double tildes (~~)
      • This sentence includes ~~spoilers~~.
      • The word "spoilers" will be hidden and will only show on mouseover.
  • Code Blocks

    • Wrap in backticks (aka the grave accent) for a code block `like this`
      • Backticks (`), not to be confused with apostrophes (')
  • Inline-style links
  • Inline-image links
    • ![](image url here)
