Formatting Comments

You can format comments to make them look better. Common formatting options are available on all websites. Website admins can turn on/off some advanced formatting options from the console.

Choosing formatting options in the console

Hyvor Talk's formatting is similar to the Markdown standard. However, some syntax is different.

Note that you can click on the "eye" icon in the comments box to preview the formatted comment before publishing.

Use a blank line to exit from the blockquote.
