Sample blog post to learn markdown tips

There's lots to learn!

By Bill Smith

This is a demo post to show you how to write blog posts with markdown. I strongly encourage you to take 5 minutes to learn how to write in markdown - it’ll teach you how to transform regular text into bold/italics/tables/etc.
I also encourage you to look at the code that created this post to learn some more advanced tips about using markdown in Beautiful Jekyll.

Here is some bold text

Here is a secondary heading

This is a link to a different site and this is a link to a section inside this page.

Here’s a table:

Number Next number Previous number
Five Six Four
Ten Eleven Nine
Seven Eight Six
Two Three One

How about a yummy crepe?

It can also be centered!

Here’s a code chunk:

var foo = function(x) {
  return(x + 5);
}
foo(3)

And here is the same code with syntax highlighting:

var foo = function(x) {
  return(x + 5);
}
foo(3)

And here is the same code yet again but with line numbers:

1
2
3
4
var foo = function(x) {
  return(x + 5);
}
foo(3)

Boxes

You can add notification, warning and error boxes like this:

Notification

Note: This is a notification box.

Warning

Warning: This is a warning box.

Error

Error: This is an error box.

Local URLs in project sites

When hosting a project site on GitHub Pages (for example, https://USERNAME.github.io/MyProject), URLs that begin with / and refer to local files may not work correctly due to how the root URL (/) is interpreted by GitHub Pages. You can read more about it in the FAQ. To demonstrate the issue, the following local image will be broken if your site is a project site:

If the above image is broken, then you’ll need to follow the instructions in the FAQ. Here is proof that it can be fixed:
