Hello,

since I didn't see anything like this stickied or linked I thought to make life easier for people who like to structure their guides or posts a little more I would make a small guideline of what you currently (as of 04/Sep/2019) can do in terms of formatting on speedrun.com.

Contents

[Hide]  

BBCode:

Bold - Two asterisks
Italic - One asterisks
Underline - Two __
Strikethrough - Two ~~

Center
- Use the "center" tag

Quote

This is a quote using the "quote" tag normally

Originally posted by ShadowDraftYou can quote people by adding "quote=NAMEHERE" to the tag

https:/​/​www.​google.​de/​ - Links are automatically turned into clickable text by the site

Still Google - But you can also define a text with [ TEXTHERE ] ( LINKHERE ) (remove the spaces from the [] tag)

https://www.speedrun.com/themes/expendabros/logo.png - Most pictures are automatically embedded by the site

- Videos are also embedded by the site

Markdown

This enables the use of "#" which will give you a header and the site will create a table of contents for you based on your existing headers.
Unfortunately as far as I know only "#" h1 header is supported.

H1

Section 3 of the table of contents.

Not necessary. The site is looking into using true Markdown. Thanks for making this through.

It appears the formatting for rules pages has been updated to markdown.
The forums still seem to use BBCode (not sure if it works in guides and resources, i don't want to notify all followers of a game)

Here are some examples on how to use markdown for Rules:
https:/​/​demo.​codimd.​org/​s/​B1MrKpYqH

There are some odd things i noticed (and that are displayed differently in my link):
• heading 2 is bigger than heading 1 and heading 4 is even bigger
• no borders on tables and no support for text alignment per column

It would be good to know which implementation of markdown is being used to properly prepare texts.
