Very good - one complaint
By , for WP 3.5.2

The plugin is very good, but I have one complaint. Because I write a lot of code in my articles, < and > get replaced to < and > after submit. So if I edit my article, I always have to change those. This is a huge dealbreaker.

New Review:

I found a bug pretty soon after installing this plugin and decided it wasn't worth it, but after posting a review, the developer quickly fixed the bug and I haven't yet run into any other problems.

Some documentation on how this plugin differs from standard markdown would be helpful, but I am very pleased as it is.

Thanks so much!

Old Review:
Many basic things work ok, but the corner cases are not handled properly. For example:

images as links:

[2]: http://google.com/logo.png

very difficult/impossible to embed raw html into a page

Well done

This works really well. My only quirk with it is the syntax highlighting doesn't work for me, but that's not the fault of this plugin; I've ran into the same issue on other code highlighting plugins.

Excellent formating
By , for WP 3.5.1

Excellent implementation of markdown, with the extended markdown features included.

Difficult to incorporate scripts and other bits of html. (For example, embedding gist scripts). Maybe if it didn't remove the raw html edit option?

works like a charm
By , for WP 3.5

Upload, Activate & Go. I never regret installing this. MarkDown is much simpler than constantly writing HTML and Stephen Harris has done a wonderful job: High quality code base, the Settings blend perfectly into the "Settings > Writing" page and so on. There's nothing that I don't need and rest just works stable and distraction free. 5/5.
