Markdown is a lightweight and easy-to-use syntax used to style text on the web.
You will encounter markdown editors in the Arlo Management platform when:
With Markdown, you can control the display of the document; formatting words as bold or italic, adding images, and creating lists.
There is no way to embed videos into a page using Markdown.
Headings are added in Markdown using the hash (#) symbol before the heading text. The more hashes before the text, the smaller the title.
In Markdown you can add emphasis to your text. You can use either stars or underscores to add emphasis and the symbols you use can be combined.
To make your text italic, add one star or underscore before and after the relevant text.
To make your text bold, add two stars or underscores before and after the relevant text.
You can mix stars and underscores in your Markdown to emphasize text as needed.
With Markdown you can add ordered (numbered) and unordered (bulleted) lists.
To add ordered (numbered) lists in Markdown, you can use 1. and indents to create your list.
To add unordered (bulleted) lists in Markdown, you can use a star followed by a space, and indents to create your list.
Unlike using stars for emphasis, unordered lists do not have a star at the end of the text, only at the start of each item in the list.
You can add images in Markdown by following the structure !(image URL), e.g. !(https://platformassets.arlocdn.net/demo/181005/Placeholder%20image%20SVG%20300%20x%20200.svg).
With Markdown, you can add blockquotes to your pages using the > character.
