Header

Here is some example content. It demonstrates several types of elements supported in this theme. For a complete list, check out the style guide.

Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Aenean eu leo quam. Pellentesque ornare sem lacinia quam venenatis vestibulum. Sed posuere consectetur est at lobortis. Cras mattis consectetur purus sit amet fermentum.

This is a blockquote curabitur blandit tempus porttitor. Nullam quis risus eget urna mollis ornare vel eu leo. Nullam id dolor id nibh ultricies vehicula ut id elit.

Etiam porta sem malesuada magna mollis euismod. Cras mattis consectetur purus sit amet fermentum. Aenean lacinia bibendum nulla sed consectetur.

Inline HTML elements

HTML defines a long list of available inline tags, a complete list of which can be found on the Mozilla Developer Network.

  • To bold text, use <strong>.
  • To italicize text, use <em>.
  • Abbreviations, like HTML should use <abbr>, with an optional title attribute for the full phrase.
  • Citations, like — Mark otto, should use <cite>.
  • Deleted text should use <del> and inserted text should use <ins>.
  • Superscript text uses <sup> and subscript text uses <sub>.

Most of these elements are styled by browsers with few modifications on our part.

Footnotes

Footnotes are supported as part of the Markdown syntax. Here’s one in action. Clicking this number1 will lead you to a footnote. The syntax looks like:

Clicking this number[^fn-sample_footnote]

Each footnote needs the ^fn- prefix and a unique ID to be referenced for the footnoted content. The syntax for that list looks something like this:

[^fn-sample_footnote]: Handy! Now click the return link to go back.

You can place the footnoted content wherever you like. Markdown parsers should properly place it at the bottom of the post. You can also add another here2.

Heading

Vivamus sagittis lacus vel augue rutrum faucibus dolor auctor. Duis mollis, est non commodo luctus, nisi erat porttitor ligula, eget lacinia odio sem nec elit. Morbi leo risus, porta ac consectetur ac, vestibulum at eros.

Code

Inline code is available with the <code> element. Snippets of multiple lines of code are supported through Pygments. Longer lines will automatically scroll horizontally when needed.

// Example can be run directly in your JavaScript console

// Create a function that takes two arguments and returns the sum of those arguments
var adder = new Function("a", "b", "return a + b");

// Call the function
adder(2, 6);
// > 8

You may also optionally show a code label above your code snippets. Simply add the following markup:

<div class="code-label">Code example</div>
Code example
// Example can be run directly in your JavaScript console

// Create a function that takes two arguments and returns the sum of those arguments
var adder = new Function("a", "b", "return a + b");

// Call the function
adder(2, 6);
// > 8
