Rush Use Markdown Syntax


The focus of this article is to share information regarding markdown syntax and its application within the Rush system. Markdown is a lightweight and easy-to-use syntax for styling. It uses non-alphabetical characters like # (hashtag) or * (asterisk) to mark which part of the text should be bold, italic, etc. Markdown is used in places where it is not recommended to give full HTML control but still allows store owners to style their content and emphasize certain pieces of information by highlighting them.

Common examples

Some common examples of markdown syntax are:

  • Using one * on each end of a word or sentence will change the style to italics.

Type *Italic* to get Italic.

  • Using ** on each end of a word or a sentence will make it bold.

Type **Bold** to get Bold.
