Markdown on Save
Converting Posts from Former Markdown Plugin (2 posts)

    Before installing this plugin, I was using a different Markdown plugin. Now that I have yours installed if I don't deactivate the former plugin I receive an error message. This is not surprising and not unexpected.

    Unfortunately, once I deactivate the former plugin, each post written in Markdown pre-your plugin now has the "Disable Markdown formatting" box checked and is displayed on the site with no conversion. I am left with the prospect of going through each and every post and unchecking the box. Is there an easier way—a setting, a trick?

    I have a kludge but I too would like to be able to programmatically uncheck this box on every post. I have too many post to do this manually.

    BTW, my kludge is a modified version of the original PHP Markdown by Michel Fortin that will convert all posts - regardless of setting.
