Markdown for WordPress and bbPress

A text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers

WordPress

PHP Markdown works with WordPress, version 1.2 or later. PHP Markdown is already bundled with WordPress. Still, you can find here the latest version that may be newer than the latest WordPress version.

  1. To use Markdown-WPBB with WordPress, place the "markdown.php" file in the "plugins" folder. This folder is located inside "wp-content" at the root of your site:

    (site home)/wp-content/plugins/
    
  2. Activate the plugin with the administrative interface of WordPress. In the "Plugins" section you will now find "Markdown for WordPress and bbPress." To activate the plugin, click on the "Activate" button on the same line as Markdown. Your entries will now be formatted with Markdown.

  3. To post Markdown content, you'll first have to disable the "visual" editor in the User section of WordPress.

You can configure Markdown-WPBB to not apply to the comments on your WordPress weblog. See the "FAQ" section below.

bbPress

  1. To use Markdown-WPBB with bbPress, place the "markdown.php" file in the "plugins" folder. This folder is located inside "wp-content" at the root of your site:

    If you don't have a /my-plugins/ directory in your bbPress installaltion, create it on the root level of your bbPress installation.

  2. Activate the plugin with the administrative interface of bbPress. Find "Markdown for WordPress and bbPress" on the "Plugins" screen and hit "Activate."
