Getting Started with Content Blocks

Matt Bradford-Aunger Updated by Matt Bradford-Aunger

Writing in HelpDocs' What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor comes with a bunch of formatting options. Whether it's writing in Markdown or dropping custom HTML right into your articles, there's a bunch of things you can do to make your copy sparkle. ✨

HelpDocs Content Blocks are a great place to start adding all the pizazz that'll help you engage your visitors.

  • Markdown Blocks. Perfect for people who love writing in Markdown. Markdown blocks convert GitHub-flavored Markdown syntax into a readable article. 📝
  • HTML Blocks. Add a little pizzazz with custom HTML elements like buttons, accordions, and embedded forms. ✨
  • Code Blocks. Highlight large sections of code and make it easy for dev teams to implement solutions. Great for technical documentation 👩‍💻
  • Embed Blocks. Want to add a video? There's a block for that too! Break up your articles with an embedded video like the one above 📹
  • Quote Blocks. These help you draw attention to a specific part of your copy. 👀
