I strongly encourage you to [take 5 minutes to learn how to write in markdown](https://markdowntutorial.com/) - it'll teach you how to transform regular text into bold/italics/tables/etc.
I also encourage you to look at the [code that created this post](https://raw.githubusercontent.com/daattali/beautiful-jekyll/master/_posts/2020-02-28-sample-markdown.md) to learn some more advanced tips about using markdown in Beautiful Jekyll. **Here is some bold text** ## Here is a secondary heading [This is a link to a different site](https://deanattali.com/) and [this is a link to a section inside this page](#local-urls). Here's a table: | Number | Next number | Previous number | | :------ |:--- | :--- | | Five | Six | Four | | Ten | Eleven | Nine | | Seven | Eight | Six | | Two | Three | One | You can use [MathJax](https://www.mathjax.org/) to write LaTeX expressions. For example: When \$$a \ne 0\$$, there are two solutions to \$$ax^2 + bx + c = 0\$$ and they are $$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.$$ How about a yummy crepe? ![Crepe](https://beautifuljekyll.com/assets/img/crepe.jpg) It can also be centered! ![Crepe](https://beautifuljekyll.com/assets/img/crepe.jpg){: .mx-auto.d-block :} Here's a code chunk: ~~~ var foo = function(x) { return(x + 5); } foo(3) ~~~ And here is the same code with syntax highlighting: javascript var foo = function(x) { return(x + 5); } foo(3)  And here is the same code yet again but with line numbers: {% highlight javascript linenos %} var foo = function(x) { return(x + 5); } foo(3) {% endhighlight %} ## Boxes You can add notification, warning and error boxes like this: ### Notification {: .box-note} **Note:** This is a notification box. ### Warning {: .box-warning} **Warning:** This is a warning box. ### Error {: .box-error} **Error:** This is an error box. ## Local URLs in project sites {#local-urls} When hosting a *project site* on GitHub Pages (for example, https://USERNAME.github.io/MyProject), URLs that begin with / and refer to local files may not work correctly due to how the root URL (/) is interpreted by GitHub Pages. You can read more about it [in the FAQ](https://beautifuljekyll.com/faq/#links-in-project-page). To demonstrate the issue, the following local image will be broken **if your site is a project site:** ![Crepe](/assets/img/crepe.jpg) If the above image is broken, then you'll need to follow the instructions [in the FAQ](https://beautifuljekyll.com/faq/#links-in-project-page). Here is proof that it can be fixed: ![Crepe]({{ '/assets/img/crepe.jpg' | relative_url }})
