Works great

Thanks for this.

Works well on WP 4.0
By ,

I received a message stating this plugin has not been tested on 4.0. I have not tested extensively but it has worked flawlessly so far!

Great. Has much improved my work flow.
By , for WP 3.9.1

The install warned that it had not been tested with WP 3.9.1, but it works fine for me.

It has improved my workflow because I no longer have to deal with the quirks of the convert-to-html facility of the tool that I am using outside WP.

I do have a wishlist, but what is there already does a great job.

Very good

Very good. It works.

Simple and efficient

Easy to use. I prefer this plugin than the jetpack one because it's independant from another website. Thank's for this plugin!

Funciona lo suficiente para ser productivo
By , for WP 3.8

Me gusta como funciona. Agrega una barra de herramientas especializada para Markdown y ofrece pevisualizaciĆ³n inmediata de lo que escribes.

No funcionan las notas al pie.

nicely done
By , for WP 3.8

There are things on my wishlist for WP-Markdown, but it works quite well.
In general, I find writing in Markdown a faster & more productive experience compared writing in the visual editor (or even with the text-only editor). The idea of duel-viewing your post (markdown & actual rendering) is useful, as you can check your work.

It would be even better to have support for a few things, like highlight.js included for writing code in blogs :)

Works as described
By , for WP 3.7.1

This plugin does exactly what it says it will do, i.e. allow content editors and administrators to write content using Markdown. It works properly and has a nice preview interface - an easy 5 star review for me.
