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.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Upload the directory
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- What about my existing content using complex markup?
The WordPress default editor will be used
- Not all of my authors like Markdown, is that a problem?
Currently each author has to manually enable it in their settings, so there is nothing to worry about
- I want Feature X, Y or Z
Do let me know on Twitter http://twitter.com/kennydude
- How do I center align my images?
This is on a site-wide basis and can be enabled by going to Settings -> Writing and there is a “MarkItUp” section.
