    I have tried to use your plugin, but unfortunately the article is not processed by the markdown engine.

    Hello @volpik

    First thank you for using my plugin, at least giving a try. I appreciate 🙂

    After testing on my side, I had to modify a bit the setup for both of them to work together. Some div tags and breaklines inside the post_content were prevented the text to be parsed properly as markdown.

    For the PostIE plugin

    From the settings panel, under the “Message” tab, I choosed
    Preferred Text Type : Plain Text
    And later at the bottom
    Filter newlines : No

    Theme custom filter

    Inside my theme’s functions.php file I added a quick filter to remove all the default html postie tags:

    add_filter( 'wp_insert_post_data' , 'filter_post_data' , 99, 2 );
    function filter_post_data( $data , $postarr ) {
    	$data[ 'post_content' ] = preg_replace( '#(<div class="postie-[a-zA-Z0-9-_]+">|<\/div>)#', '', $data[ 'post_content' ] );
    	return $data;

    You may have to adjust the filter to your needs.


    I haven’t tested all the features, I performed my tests by sending emails using Thunderbird and a Gmail account. Basically I was typing raw markdown inside the body of my email:

    Using the tweaks explained earlier should be enough to save the data in a more appropriate format and be parsed as markdown. The render was :

    Hope that will work for you as well.
