Simple and efficient
By , for WP 3.9.1

Easy to use. I prefer this plugin than the jetpack one because it's independant from another website. Thank's for this plugin!

Funciona lo suficiente para ser productivo
By , for WP 3.8

Me gusta como funciona. Agrega una barra de herramientas especializada para Markdown y ofrece pevisualizaciĆ³n inmediata de lo que escribes.

No funcionan las notas al pie.

nicely done
By , for WP 3.8

There are things on my wishlist for WP-Markdown, but it works quite well.
In general, I find writing in Markdown a faster & more productive experience compared writing in the visual editor (or even with the text-only editor). The idea of duel-viewing your post (markdown & actual rendering) is useful, as you can check your work.

It would be even better to have support for a few things, like highlight.js included for writing code in blogs :)

Works as described
By , for WP 3.7.1

This plugin does exactly what it says it will do, i.e. allow content editors and administrators to write content using Markdown. It works properly and has a nice preview interface - an easy 5 star review for me.

Does not work - Parse Error
By ,

I tried it and I get this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STATIC, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/XXXX/wp-content/plugins/wp-markdown/wp-markdown.php on line 30

Too buggy
By ,

The plugin works but :
- sometimes, when saving, the page, modifications are not saved
- unable to make [embed] shortcode work to embed youtube videos for example
- unable to make <div> tag work to embed youtube videos for example

When the tinymce bar is replaced, all other buttons (added by you theme or by a plugin) are not displayed anymore. Annoying.

Great but not cons

It can be better if it is fully compatible with MOU editor

Extremely useful for developers
By , for WP 3.6

It's so nice to not have to finally convert my markdown code to html on my own before dropping it into my posts, pages, and download post types.
