If you paste in a URL, like http://ghost.org - it'll automatically be linked up. But if you want to customise your anchor text, you can do that too! Here's a link to the Ghost website.


When you want to add a quote in Markdown, it’s exactly the same as the formatting which you may already be familiar with from your email app of choice when you reply to someone. Prefixing the line with a > converts it into a block-quote.

Footnotes can be added to the body of your text using placeholders like this: [^1] or [^note] coupled with the note text at the end of the document. For example:

Here is a footnote reference,[1] and another.[2]

  1. Here's the footnote. ↩︎
  2. Here's one with multiple blocks. ↩︎

Working with Code

Code can be presented inline, like <code>. Indenting by 4 spaces will turn an entire paragraph into a code-block.

pre {
  background-color: #f4f4f4;
  max-width: 100%;
  overflow: auto;
.awesome-thing {
    display: block;
    width: 100%;

That should be enough to get you started. Have fun!
