Plugin README Parser will display a WordPress plugin's README file in XHTML format, for embedding on a post or page.
WordPress README files are formatted using a version of the Markdown language. This plugin can be used to convert these to XHTML and display on a post or page of your site.
It's ideal for plugin developers who wish to add instructions to their own site without having to duplicate effort.
To use, simply add the
[readme] shortcode to any post or page. An example of use would be...
[readme]WP README Parser[/readme]
This would fetch and display the README for this plugin. You can also specify a filename instead.
The first heading, which is the name of the plugin, will be automatically suppressed as it is assumed that you have already added this to your post/page or are using it as the title.
This should get you started but for more information and advanced options please read the "Other Notes" tab.
