edited January 2012 in Questions Posts: 2,820

Hello,
What are all the things you can put in discussions? I know you can put code, italics, bold, underline, and faces. The rest I don't know. Can I use all the HTML elements? Also, how to I make a new line and embed images?
Thanks!
Update- Here is an example of some of the most used elements (Here is the code.):

Header 1

Header 2

  • A list item.

    With multiple paragraphs.

  • Item 2

Email-style angle brackets

are used for blockquotes.

Put markdown dashes like <code> in this.
This is real code

alt text

    The input syntax used here is Markdown, specifically PHP Markdown Extra. You can find complete descriptions of the syntax on the web quite easily once you know that.

    Oh... So you can use typical HTML! Cool! Thanks! But... Why doesn't centering work?

    Cool. You can also change the font but the sizing option doesn't work!

    Background color also doesn't work. But that makes sense.
    Thanks @Ipda41001

    Can I put a line thru the text saying I crossed it out?
    Thanks!

    Just had to ask. Use "del" in arrows. Strike doesn't work.

    Just want to try this out:

    YouTube embed isn't working. I got the code from here and that video doesn't work but my own custom video doesn't work. Also when I press "Embed" on YouTube, that link doesnt work.
    It works now.

    Here's the code:

    <object width="1280"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="1280" height="720" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    Above is what happens when you try to embed a google map. It happens because this forum doesn't allow Java Script.
