Support » Fixing WordPress » text formatting: textile, textile 2 etc. Do you guys use them?

  • Hi all,

    I am currently using textile 1 but it adds p tags to my unordered lists and breaks in all the wrong places.

    What is the best option for text formatting or should I just switch them all off?

    My only worry is other users not familiar with html.

    What say you?

    Thanks

  • For me since I am the only author/user it’s easier not to use them. But I guess everybody will have a different answer 🙂

    I use Markdown, primarily because I dig the syntax.

    No need for them…. like moshu, I’m pretty much the only author/user, and I’m perfectly happy hand-coding when I need something.

    It is my understanding that if you are using these, just about anywhere you put a double line break, you’re going to get p’s all over the place. 😉

    Because I want to not code some short posts without special graphics or effects, but the majority of my posts require HTML, I use TextControl plugin so I can customize the formatting on a per post basis. Some I use wpautop and texturize, and most I say “no formatting and no character coding” and let “me” be in charge of the results with tags.

    But isn’t it nice you have the options.

    Thanks for the information 🙂

    ‘But isn’t it nice you have the options. ‘ It sure is 🙂

    Never seen that plugin before – very cool 🙂

    I use the Textile 2 plugin, because (1) it’s easier than writing straight html, (2) it gives me more control than a wysiwyg plugin, and (3) it makes it easy for me to use footnotes.

    I use Textile 2 too. 😉

    Not only is it easier than coding html … removed urls and footnotes rock — I’m thinking about a LaTeX plugin 😉

    The bottom line, of course, is that I bought into the idea that if I store “plain text” as much as possible, I can always mark it up to be compliant with new standards…
