The Perch Forum allows formatting of posts and replies with Markdown. The most useful options are listed below.
You can mark up code in-line using backticks (
`code`), or add a code block by adding at least four spaces to the start of a line:
This is a code block
Code blocks can also be marked up by using the
~~~ perch_content_custom('Example', array( 'count' => 10, 'start' => 100, )); ~~~
You can also write your code in a Gist and paste the URL into your post or reply. This can be handy for larger chunks of code.

Create a link by surrounding the link text in square brackets, followed immediately by the URL in parentheses:

You can add also images via the following syntax:
