Textile is a markup language that allows you to style text without having to know complex HTML. You can learn more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Textile_(markup_language).

So anywhere you can enter text into the website, you can use Textile.

Here is a reference of supported Textile elements.

    I’ll give it a shot. It really annoys me that I can’t post a valid link on this site. I can do so, elsewhere with no problem. Not here. Cordially, but a naif where code is concerned) Cordially, Nehmah

    I would like to have the code for the different formats directly under the “Add a new post” or “reply” box, so that I can copy and paste the commands.

      I’d like to see this too! Hmmm… wasn’t that on the old site? It was very handy if I recall :)

    For some reason I cannot get this to work for me, and it is driving me nuts not knowing why. I am trying to link to an outside source, I am using a mac. I tried the code in both Firefox and Safari.

    I cannot get links into the information boxes. It is so frustrating to link my projects to other places around the web! I try the text link technique but it is not working. :(

    Can anyone link to another site in their information boxes?

    Of course the link works in this comment. It still will not work on my projects all the time.

    Doesn’t html work in the “about me” section any more? I had posted some pictures and it worked, but after a while only the html text would show up. I tried again, but haven’t managed to get my photos posted again.

      hmmmmm? can you try again and if it isn’t working then email answers[at]burdastyle.com with your browser and a link to your profile, thanks!

      I tried again – doesn’t work.
      Could you have a look at my profile before I write an email. Maybe I’m the only one who can’t see the pictures.
      Theoretically there should be the same picture as the one I posted using the provided uploading form two more times because I also tried code given above.
      (If they show up they, they will probably be too big because I didn’t care about limiting height or with)

      Hey!
      Yes, it was. On August 11 sewella commented about it on my wall, so that day it must still have worked. I also cannot get my text in the material notes in my projects start in a new line which I also used to do with html (those “br” signs).
      Thank you!

    It still doesn’t work : / Is it possible for others or is it something that generally doesn’t work/ isn’t meant to work in the about me section and the project descriptions?

      Hello magdamagda,

      I think I figured out what is happening, at the end of your link add a back slash / and see if that takes care of the issue. Each link or text have to have a finished direction to know what to do. Let me know if it fixes it.

      Happy sewing from your friendly Burdastyle moderator!

    I’m having a hard time figuring out how to have paragraph breaks. Hitting return doesn’t work. typing p. (as suggested in the full textile 2.0 document), neither does making standard HTML for paragraphing. Help.

    I am having the same problem! I have spent waaaay too much time trying to format a new project in the ‘Project Description’ and ‘Material Notes’ No matter what I do, I can’t get any paragraph breaks so it turns into one looong, hard to read paragraph. HELP!

    I’m also having problems formatting paragraphs in the “Project Description” box. Using “p.” is not working – it just shows up at the beginning of the sentence.

    I’m having problems formatting in the “project description” box too, I’ve tried using html code, hitting return and typing p and none work, I just end up with one giant paragraph. Please help!

      Report it here: http://support.burdastyle.com/burdastyle
      {would you believe that they work on above site}

      sew4my3 has tried many times to help, her hypelinks work probably because she is a moderator with more authorization codes to use the links.
