In very long posts, it can be helpful to structure the text with headings that make it more readable. This also allows users to link directly to a section of a large post.
To create a heading with markdown, prefix a line text with a number of
# characters corresponding to the level of the heading.
## This is a level 2 heading Here is a short paragraph afterwards. ### This is a level 3 heading Here is another short paragraph.
Looks like this:
Here is a short paragraph afterwards.
Here is another short paragraph.
To share a direct link to one of these headings, follow these steps:
- Hover over the heading it to reveal a icon like in the screenshot below:
- Click the icon to update the URL in the address bar to be the direct link to that heading.
- Copy the URL from your address bar to share with others.
