# Slide Delimiters

GitPitch slideshow presentation content is created using markdown. To split markdown content into a series of slides, you must use a special slide delimiter syntax. Each delimiter denotes the start of a new slide.

To create a new slide use the following delimiter syntax within your PITCHME.md file:

---

# Hello, World!


As both horizontal (default) and vertical navigation is supported within GitPitch slide decks each navigation type has it’s own unique delimiter syntax. To activate vertical navigation for a slide use the following delimiter syntax within your PITCHME.md file:

+++

# Hello, World!


By using a combination of horizontal and vertical slide delimiters you can customize how your audience experiences and navigates content within your slideshow presentation.

Typically horizontal slides present top-level information. Vertical slides are then used to drill-down into a series of slides with topic-specific content.

#### Example Usage

A very simple two slide PITCHME.md slideshow presentation can be created as follows:

## Hello, World!

---

## The End :)


Note, the delimiter for the first slide in every presentation is implicit. So only one explicit slide delimeter is needed in the above example.

Here is a simple four slide PITCHME.md presentation that uses both horizontal and vertical navigation:

## Hello!

+++

## Hola!

---

## Goodbye!
