When users post listings on your marketplace or add details about them on their profile page, they can fill a description field. To emphasize a part of that content, they can easily add some basic formatting to make their listing look better.

Formatting is done with Markdown. Markdown is a simple way to format text that looks great on any device. It doesn’t do anything fancy like changing the font size, color, or type — just the essentials, using keyboard symbols we all already know.

A helpful popup is available above the description field.

What kind of formatting can be added to listings and profiles?

It's possible to add:

  • titles

  • italic

  • bold

  • underline

  • strike-through

  • inline links

  • numbered and unnumbered lists
