Markdown QuickTags

Replace the WordPress HTML editor with a Markdown one. Auto-pairing, wrapping, preview/render, customizable editor fonts and more.

What's Markdown?

Created by John Gruber, Markdown is a simple, plain-text language for easily creating HTML. See the original project page for syntax and documentation.

Can I use Markdown QuickTags with the visual editor?

Yes. You can edit Markdown in the Markdown editor and, with the click of a button, render it to clean HTML that will work in the visual editor.

Can I save my post as Markdown?

Sure. You'll just need a plugin to render it to HTML on the front end. I recommend this one.

Requires: 3.0 or higher
