EBCC Webmaster

If you want to add any formatting to your posts, I'd suggest reading up on Markdown.


**Surround text with double asterisks**
__Or double underscores__


*Surround text with single asterisks*
_Or single underscores_

Single Line Break
Add two blank spaces to the end of a line to make a single line break

Double Line Break
A paragraph is simply one or more consecutive lines of text, separated by one or more blank lines. (A blank line is any line that looks like a blank line — a line containing nothing but spaces or tabs is considered blank.) Normal paragraphs should not be indented with spaces or tabs.


[Put your link text here](Put the URL here)


![Alt Text](Image URL)

Begin the line with an asterisk for each item in a bulleted list.

* Item One
* Item Two
  • Item One
  • Item Two

Or for a numbered list use number ...

1. First Item
2. Second Item
  1. First Item
  2. Second Item

I added buttons to the top of the post creation form to help, but reading a little about Markdown should help if you are interested in adding some more complex formatting to your posts.
