Step 3: Add headers

As you saw on your website, your portfolio doesn't have much content yet. We'll learn how to edit the file in this pull request to incorporate some Markdown headers.

You can see an example of a header at the top of this page! Just like in HTML, a header is a larger bit of text at the beginning of a section. There are six sizes.


# This is an <h1> header, which is the largest
## This is an <h2> header
###### This is an <h6> header, which is the smallest

How it looks

This is an <h1> header, which is the largest

This is an <h2> header

This is an <h6> header, which is the smallest

In issues, pull requests, and comments, you can use the text formatting toolbar.

The toolbar isn't available everywhere. When you edit a file, you must type the # symbols manually.

⌨️ Activity: Edit your file with headers

  1. In this pull request, click the Files changed tab.
  2. In the upper right corner of the file view, click the small pencil ✏️ icon for the file titled _includes/
  3. On the Edit file tab, add a # before the content to make it an H1 Header. You can add more headers, using one to six # characters.
  4. Above your new content, click Preview changes.
  5. At the bottom of the page, type a short, meaningful commit message that describes the change you made to the file.
  6. Click Commit changes.

Watch below for my response.
