Markdown and future proofing/portability
I’m interested in adding Markdown to my WordPress thingy, but I’ve noticed quite a bit of negative articles and comments about these two together.
It seems to me that most recent stuff I’ve found on this is positive but going back a bit it gets more negative.
I don’t really need Markdown, but I’m interested by it. The big questions are:
- If I switch now, with 18 months of archived blogs, will Markdown and my old entries play nice?
- In the unlikely case I’d switch blogging systems, or the more likely case of migrating my blog to another WordPress installation, would I have problems because of Markdown?
- I think I have the answer to this one, but I’d like to have a confirmation; should I decide I don’t like Markdown and uninstall it, will I have problems? Would I get past them by simply leaving Markdown be and stop using its markup syntax?
