Awesome plugin Brett! Thanks so much for taking the time to put it together and making it available freely. Thanks also particularly for this 4.4 update which has fixed the display issues of the previous version. For anyone who needs the ability to paste Markdown text into the WordPress text editor then convert it to HTML with one click -- this is the plugin you're looking for! It works great and can convert both ways (markdown > html or html > markdown) as well as giving you markdown tags in the toolbar and adding a heap of auto tagging stuff. I couldn't be happier with the plugin and definitely recommend it for anyone who prefers to work with Markdown text as opposed to typing full HTML. I use this plugin to paste articles written in Markdown in a separate text editor into WordPress, then convert the Markdown to HTML using the 'Render' option added by this plugin below the text entry area. Thanks again, Brett!
