Although I wish the split view didn't require the fullscreen view too.

1-star rating due to conflicting with with Jetpack on WP 4.7.2 (2017-03-03 09:47:45) resulting in a completely non-functional site – plain, white, blank screen, no error message. If you encounter this, you will need to delete the plugin from the /wp-contents/plugins directory via FTP or SSH in order to get your site back up and running. Once you do this, or deactivate/delete Jetpack the plugin works again. Without Jetpack, 3-star rating since the markdown support is very basic and doesn’t include some fairly basic additions like autolinking URLs. Specifically, URLs appear autolinked in the preview, but not when you preview the post. Also, it doesn’t use a monospaced font for code or tables, making editing those things in markdown very messy. Fix up some of those things and I’d be happy to up the review to 4 stars, but as it stands currently, the plugin either breaks your site if you’re using one of the most widespread plugins in Wordpress (Jetpack), or it functions only to a very basic level.

Absolutely love this! However, I did have to modify it slightly because I found the font much too small. I would suggest either increasing the font size outright, or allowing users to set their own preferred font size. With the CSS below, I'm happily writing away in MarkDown. One other thought, while I'm here: Ctrl-P works to enable Preview, but if I press it again I get my browser's Print dialog instead of exiting preview. Not sure if that was known or not, but it's a hiccup I noticed. Minor things. Overall, this vastly improved my writing experience in WP. #wp-content-editor-container > div.CodeMirror.cm-s-paper.CodeMirror-wrap { font-size: 15px; } #wp-content-editor-container > div.editor-preview-side.editor-preview-active-side p { font-size: 15px; }

Best, but it's a problem - in markdown menu editor I don't see shortcode from other plugins (only default). It's a big problem with polish characters too (shortcut like alt+ł it's polish character).

I really like Markdown, but I don't like the WordPress plugins for Markdown - until now. I just found WP Markdown Editor and I love it. It's the best Markdown plugin for WordPress ever!
