You can personalise the entry details of your event using Markdown - a way to style text and add links using simple codes.

This is a great way to make your Public page more varied and interesting for your bookers when they visit it and read the information provided by you. Using Markdown allows you to create paragraphs, line breaks, bullet and number lists, bold and italic fonts, and enlarge the text.

This article covers:


How to format your text

Paragraph

To start a new paragraph, press enter on your keyboard to leave a blank line between paragraphs.

Line breaks

To put a line break within a paragraph, leave two blank spaces at the end of the line.

Enlarging text

Putting a hash (#) at the start of a line makes a large title. The size of the text depends on how many hashes you add before it.

For example:

  • # Heading 1 - Biggest

  • ## Heading 2 - Medium

  • ### Heading 3 - Small

How it appears on your public page:

Bullet or number listing

Bullet point listing

- Bullet list item with a dash (-) or asterisk (*)
- Bullet list item two

For example:

Number listing

1. Numbered list with a number and a point
2. Numbered list item two

For example:

Make the text italic or bold

You can also make your text appear in bold or italic, or both,

Italic

Putting one underscore (_) or one asterisk (*) before and after the word/sentence you'd like (with no spaces in-between) will make it appear italic.

For example:

_italics_ or *italics*

In this example, you can see the underscore has been used at the beginning and end of the sentence:

This then appears like the below on the public page:

Bold

Putting two underscores (__) or two asterisks (**) before and after the word/sentence you'd like (with no spaces in-between) will make it appear bold.

For example:
 __bold__ or **bold**

In this example, you can see the two asterisks used at the beginning and end of the sentence:

This then appears like the below on the public page:

Both

If you'd like your text to be both bold and italic, there are a couple of varieties you can choose from:

  1. Add an asterisk (*) and two underscores (__) before and after the word/sentence.

  2. Add an underscore (_) and two asterisks (**) before and after the word/sentence.

To note: it doesn't matter in what order you enter the characters, as long as they are grouped in the correct format.

  • If you want to use an asterisk or underscore without it affecting the text, add a backslash before it. For example:

    • \*your text

    • \_your text

Adding a backslash will remove the markdown and the characters will appear as normal (unformatted).


To add a link, use the format: [Title] (link)

For example:

[Bookwhen] (http://bookwhen.com)

It is shown as:

Bookwhen

PLEASE NOTE: THE SPACE BETWEEN THE TITLE AND LINK BRACKETS '] (' MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE EXAMPLE TEXT ABOVE
