Markdown provides a syntax for links that’s easy to remember. First, type the text you want to appear on the page in square brackets, then add the link in parenthesis. If I want to link to Treehouse, I would type
You also have the option to provide a title, which appears when you hover the mouse cursor over the link. Just type a space after the url and close the label in quotes. Both the url and the title should be inside the parenthesis.
What if you want to link to a reference at the bottom of a section or page like a footnote? Start with the text in square brackets, but don’t add the parenthesis. Instead, add a number to reference in another set of square brackets.
Now at another place in the document, add the reference number in square brackets and follow it with a colon, a space, and the link url. You can add an optional title with a space and quotes to this type of link too. Reference links don’t require parenthesis.
