Formatting Codes (Under construction)
To make the text larger, add a # in front of it.
To quote something, add a > in front of you quote.
>Welcome to Duolingo =>
Welcome to Duolingo
To make something in italics, add an asterisk in front and behind it.

To post an image, do this:
!(Image URL goes in here) NO SPACES! The highlights are not needed.
To make a list, or add bullets:
To make a line:
Press the underscore 7 times, no spaces.
What I used to highlight text is the tick, that is right under the esc key, and right next to the 1 and ! key.
If you add ticks to the end of the text, it will be highlighted.
To make a huge highlighted text, put the hashtag before the two ticks.<h1>

ok. this is pretty<h1>helpful</h1>
and some more stuff to do: big put 2 spaces between the
# or it wont work
and put 7
- and it will make the line above it a little bit bigger
<h1>but not super big like this</h1>
but not regular like this
here is another post about formatting codes<h1>Hi</h1>
hope this helps!
- buena suerta!
for a bullet point put two spaces between the
* and what you want to say
It actually does work
I have a question, how do you make a fold?
Example: in this post https://www.duolingo.com/comment/7619770
there are dotted lines under some headlines, and if you press one of those headlines, the text below it is expanded (if you press it again, it folds back in). How does one do that?
For the separating line, you can either do 7 underscores, or more simply (and what I use) 3 hyphens.
You can do other things with hashtags:
7 hashtags (6 is the limit for effect, any extra hashtag(s) are visible)
If you want to quote some special character without it having its usual effect, like in your explanation for the tic, put a backslash (\) before said character, like \`this\`, it'll give you `this`.
If it's surrounded by spaces, nothing special (like that _ ). If it's next to a word, you need to escape it with a backslash ( \ ) like \_that.
Sorry BastouXII, I don't understand. Maybe I wasn't clear. I wanted to know how to underline a word.
