When users are posting listings in your marketplace, or adding details about them on their profile page, they can fill a description field. To emphasize 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 change 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
