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!

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.

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.

Close, but not polished

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:

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

very difficult/impossible to embed raw html into a page

Well done
By ,

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.
