Support » Plugin: Jetpack by » Adding Markdown support to Plugins: Paragraphs

  • Resolved jezza101


    I have added markdown support to a meta field in a custom plugin using the suggestion here.

    WPCom_Markdown::get_instance()->transform( $content )

    This works fine with the exception of paragraphs (I understand these are inserted by inserting two or more spaces and pressing return).

    In the above example, $content is simply the contents of a post meta field collected from a text area. I then echo the result of the transform. Note that I do set unslash to false as I am using the content of my meta form directly.

    Paragraphs aren’t showing up, and whats more I can’t even use html p tags! Any suggestions?

    Many thanks.

  • I worked it out.

    Turns out this is less to do with JetPack and more with how WordPress handles paragraphs and sanitisation of meta fields.

    I added the solution to my post on the topic here. Hope that is useful to someone in the future 🙂
