I disable visual editing in order to render markdown on my wordpress site. I feed it through MarsEdit.
However, this disables a lot of functionality in handling media, which requires the visual editor.
This is for a large university class and while I'd like to have both - visual editing for the media galleries and non-visual editing for the markdown capability - I'm nervous about breaking everything by installing this in midstream.
If I install it and then page by page disable the visual editing, I'll not wreck anything in a page that's already happily handling markdown, right? If I were to render after disabling but before disabling page by page, would that wreck things? (I don't know why I'd do that, but I'm looking for any and all vulnerabilities before taking this step!)
