Specifically for new Duolingo users who wonder how in certain comments or discussions, how certain text are bold or italicized or etc. Well this guide should help answer that question and shows examples!

(Once you are done quoting, just make a new line and don't use the ">" at beginning of new line)
In other words:
[Whatever Text to Display to Click](URL of website]
In other words:
!(Imgur URL of uploaded image)
(Remember to first upload your image to imgur and then copy the specific imgur link they give you and insert it properly. Don't forget the "!")
* Test 1
* Test 2
(Sorry for the not properly indented explanation)
- Test 1
- Test 2
(Make sure there is a space after the asterisk or "*" and make sure you make a new line after each list. So basically every line should have an * and then space and then the name of list. Hope you understand. Sorry for the weird spaces in the unorganized list explanation. Highlighting mistakes)
There are more formatting codes but this is the basic to let you know on how the formatting works. I hope this guide helped you and if you see any errors or have questions, feel free to tell/ask. Thanks!
