    CF forums use the markdown format

    Dear CF users,

    In addition to the price alert system, I intend to develop and improve CF's forum functionality and will working more on that part.

    One advantage we have over other forum systems is the markdown format. A full explanation of that text formating system can be found at http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax

    Mardown lets one easily format a forum post without using any awkward html or bbcode tags. Please take a look at the examples on the above web site or the "forum syntax quick reference" available when creating a new post.

    Let me know if you have any questions or comments,

    As an illustration of markdown's ease of use, I can reply to my own post and make in-context comments.

    When replying to a post, use the "quote" link and insert your comment to specific points between the > markers:

    > original poster 
    > said this and that
    
    your comment

    on wich you may or may not agree,
