Fedora-Flavored Markdown


Text fields in Bodhi2 support an enhanced version of markdown. This is a cheat sheet for your reference.

You can do HEADERS by underlining or by prefixing with the # character:

This is an H1

This is an H2

# This is another H1

## This is another H2

You can do BLOCKQUOTES using email-style prefixes with the > character:

> This is a quotation
> over many lines
> > and it can be nested(!)

LISTS work like you’d expect, by prefixing with any of the *, +, or - characters:

Check out this list:

* This
* is
* a list...

You need a blank line between a paragraph and the start of a list for the renderer to pick up on it.

EMPHASIS can be addedd like this:


You can save your code references from being misinterpreted as emphasis by surrounding them with backtick characters (`):

Use `the_best_function()` and _not_ that crummy one

LINKS look like this:


…but we also support bare links if you just provide a URL.

You can create CODE BLOCKS by indenting every line of the block by at least 4 spaces or 1 tab.

Here is a code block:
  for i in range(4):
    print i

You can reference BUG REPORTS by simply writing something of the form tracker#ticketid.

This fixes PHP#1234 and Python#2345

…we will automatically generate links to the tickets in the appropriate trackers in place. The supported bug tracker prefixes are: (these are all case-insensitive)

Fedora, RHBZ and RH (all point to the Red Hat Bugzilla)

And you can refer to OTHER USERS by prefixing their username with the @ symbol.

Thanks @mattdm

This will generate a link to their profile, but it won’t necessarily send them a notification unless they have a special FMN rule set up to catch it.

Lastly, you can embed inline IMAGES with syntax like this:

![Alt text](/path/to/img.jpg)
