In your settings for the Sirvoy Website Builder under the section “About Us” you have the possibility to add formatted text using Markdown in the text box. This short article will explain some of the useful Markdown features.

To facilitate adding formatted text, you will find a toolbar with icons above the textbox that when applied, will automatically format text, for example as a heading, as bold or italic. You can also add numbered or bulleted lists, website links and blockquotes.

The formatting tool used is called Markdown, a way to style text on the web, allowing you to control its display. When applying Markdown (by using the provided toolbar icons or manually), in the textbox it will display as regular text with a few additional non-alphabetic characters, like “*” or “#”. Below you will see some examples of Markdown in text, and the rendered output on your webpage, which you will be able to see as an immediate preview on your page.

Headings

Headings are created by adding number signs (#) in front of a word or phrase. The number of number signs will reflect the corresponding heading level.

Links

To create a link, the link text is enclosed in brackets (e.g., [My Luxury Hotel]), followed immediately with the URL of your choice in parentheses (e.g., (https://myluxuryhotel.com/)).

For example:
Book your weekend break now at [My Luxury Hotel](https://myluxuryhotel.com).

The resulting output looks like this:
Book your weekend break now at My Luxury Hotel.
