MarkItUp!

Description

MarkItUp (beta) allows for you to use Markdown on your WordPress site.

It does this on a per-author basis and per-post. This means that you shouldn’t be accidently converting other people’s posts/pages into Markdown by accident!

Currently this wears the beta label because it could have little bumps which aren’t smoothed out just yet.

Installation

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

e.g.

  1. Upload the directory markitup to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
