rmarkdown(slidy) not creating slides

I used the code from a previously working rmarkdown program.
I updated my r and r studio to 3.6.1. when i try rendering it, i get the title slide but the rest stays as on html page. I have to scroll down.

after loading and restarting r studio, i updated all packages - rmarkdown, knitr, yaml.

title: "lecture_05_ Stats, Functions Graphing"

  • Make sure to import that data and grab a basic understanding before modeling:

library(datasets)
data = iris
str(data)

##Basic Package & Functions to Generate Various Statistical Calculations

  • For a vast list of useful stats functions use the **stats-package:

_ this should give 3 slides. i only get 2!

Ok, I think I solved it. The new versions require a space after ## newslide
