Typing anything remotely long-form on this site remains as big of a pain in the ass as always.What's the problem?
What's the problem?
Text surrounded by asterisks (*) is italicized.
Text surrounded by plus signs (+) is bolded.
Text surrounded by vertical bars (|) is quoted. If you double-click a paragraph, it will be quoted.
Text surrounded by tildes (~) is blocked out.
Symbols such as *, +, |, and ~ can be used literally by placed a \ in front of the text.
A user's name surrounded by at signs (@) links to their profile, and the user is notified that you mentioned them.
A word surrounded by hash signs (#) becomes a tag and links to posts with that tag.
Text after a blank line that is indented by two or more spaces is reproduced verbatim in a different font.
URLs become links. However, new users cannot post links in comments.
Hubski URLS become embedded cards, displaying information about the post or comment.
Text can link to URLs by using the following format: [linked text](http://theurl.com)
Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Twitter, and Spotify urls will embed the content automatically.
Image URLs (.png, .tif, .gif, and .jpg) will embed automatically.
The fact that the post page expires about a few minutes, so if it takes you longer to type anything, you have to copy-and-paste it into a new one.
Agreed. A session counter or extending the session would do the long-writers a favor. mk
It's probably the markup he's talking about. You can't write + without a \ in front of it, or else it'll bold your text.
Nah, I'm fine with markdown (even if this site uses a non-standard version for some reason). I do most of my word processing these days in Typora, which is markdown-based.
