Allows Markdown to be enabled in posts, comments and bbPress forums.

How do I use Markdown syntax?

For information on how to use Markdown sytnax pleae read: Markdown: syntax.

What happens to the post content if I uninstall the plug-in?

The plug-in uses Markdown to generate the appropriate HTML prior to the post saving to the database. When you edit a post, it is converted back to Markdown syntax. Once the plug-in is uninstalled you'll simply rever to editing the posts' HTML.

How do I embed content?

A clean install of WordPress allows you to (for example) include a YouTube url on a seperate line, whereupon it will automatically embed the video. This is not possible with WP-MarkDown installed (I tried - I broke more things. But if you manage it, feel free to make a pull-request: https://github.com/stephenharris/WP-MarkDown).

You'll need to use the [embed] shortcode.

How do I prevent a bit of the page being parsed as MarkDown?

Enclose it in a div tag. It'll be ignored.

How do I allow the contents of a `div` tag to be parsed as MarkDown?

Use <div markdown="1">.
