Submission rules

  • You understand that Vultr team members may make changes to your article to improve readability.
  • You must submit the article using the same email address that is used with your Vultr account.

Vultr Flavored Markdown

Vultr docs articles use the Markdown language designed by John Gruber. This page serves as a quick reference to the Markdown tags supported in Vultr docs articles. A more in-depth explanation on each tag is written on the Markdown homepage.

The main differences between Markdown and Vultr Flavored Markdown are as follows:

  • Vultr Markdown does not allow inline HTML. You may only use plain text with Markdown formatting.
  • Links must start with either the http:// or https:// URL scheme. Other URL schemes are stripped.
  • Images are not currently supported in the Markdown code. If you would like to add an image, place a link to the image where you would like it to appear in your article, the Vultr editor will add it when publishing your article.
