Arbital Markdown syntax
Arbital adds a few extra features to Markdown syntax.
Table of contents
`` creates a table of contents, like the one above.
Add note about the Intrasite Link button on the toolbar.
If you link to a page that doesn’t exist, the link will show up red:
If you want to just create a red link with some text:
If you want to mention someone use
NOTE: the user will get an update if the mention is in a comment. <div><div>
You can set the page’s summary, which shows up in greenlink popovers and other places. For example:
Summary of the page goes here. *Markdown* is okay!
Or to set a specific summary:
Very technical summary. *Markdown* is okay!
Make sure that the entire summary block is in a paragraph of its own.
You can create hidden text:
Hidden text goes here.
You can use this for hiding problem answers and asking the user to solve the problem themselves before clicking the button to see the correct answer. Button text is required.
You can create notes, which are snippets of text hidden behind a question mark. You can put footnotes or other text that might be interesting to some users, but not to everyone. For example:
noteFun note text! will show up as: noteFun note text!
You can embed votes from other pages. For example:
3rcreates this voting bar:
Todos, , and
You can leave todo markers for yourself or other authors. For example:
finish this section finish this section
This will only appear in the top quality bar when expanded, not the page text. Red links and “todo” markers count towards the todo score, which you will see next to the pages on the Explore and your Profile pages.
Similarly, you can leave comments or fixmes for other authors, but without increasing the todo count. For example:
there has got to be a better metaphor for this
this needs to be fixed, but I’ve got it there has got to be a better metaphor for this this needs to be fixed, but I’ve got it
Again, this doesn’t show up for the reader in any way.
questions and path generation
If you’re new to LaTeX you may want to read the Wikibooks guide
You can use $ to create inline mathematical expressions, e.g.
\(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\) will be displayed as: \(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\)
And $$ to create centered math expressions, e.g.
will be displayed as:
