Headings

When creating a header, all you need to do is add a # before your header or use the contextual toolbar. You can keep adding up to six # in a row to make the headers smaller.

If you paste in a URL, like https://ghost.org - it'll automatically be linked up. But if you want to customise your anchor text, you can do that too! Here's a link to the Ghost website.



Buttons

Add call to action buttons to your posts using button cards. Buttons can be center or left aligned, include custom button text, and link to any URL.



Quoting

If you want to add a quote, you just need to add a > to the beginning of the line or use the contextual toolbar, and it will put it into the quote format.

Minimal Quote

Bookmarks

With the Bookmark card you can present links in a much richer format. If the URL points to a page with right meta information it can show the page title, excerpt, author, publisher and even a preview image.

Code

If you’re a technical writer, you may want to use example snippets of code to teach your readers a particular syntax. Using a single backtick (`) around a word in a sentence, you can show a quick code snippet. three backticks (```) will turn an entire paragraph into a code block.
