You've probably noticed that some of the listings on LiveLocal look quite cool!

That's because LiveLocal has been built to use a formatting code called Markdown. Markdown is a simple but effective way to format text that looks great on any device. It doesn’t do anything fancy like change the font size, color, or type — just the essentials, using keyboard symbols we all already know.

Using Markdown formatting, you can create really awesome looking text and formats in your listing description. Give it a try!

A helpful pop up is available with some tips above the description field.

> Paua Cottage was amazing! The view was great, the house itself was clean and had everything needed and more! Ben and Angel had thought of so many little details, it made everything just so easy. I can’t fault one single thing about the weekend stay. Thank you so much!

> Paua Cottage is a real gem in Khandallah, Wellington. There are so many positives and reasons to stay here: the hosts are so lovely and have added extra little touches which make your stay extra special, they are prompt in their replies and their check-in procedure is flawless. The accommodation is spotless and has everything you need plus more for your stay. The views over the water, hillside and Westpac Stadium (Cake Tin) were so lovely during the day and even more spectacular during the night. We would definitely rebook the Paua Cottage on our next trip back to Wellington.
