Waiting for 1.6
By , for WP 4.4.2

Version 1.5.1 of the plugin works almost perfectly.

I'm just waiting for the upcoming 1.6 update (which is in alpha on GitHub) to be pushed, so I can use GitHub Flavor-style codeblocks specifying the exact language.

elegant and lightweight solution for using markdown
By , for WP 4.4.1

I like the simplified editor controls so you don't need to know Markdown to use it - the basics are in there
Ideal for less technical people that can get into a muddle with HTML.

Entering table markup works OK in the article but doesn't render as a table in the preview window.

Works great

Thanks for this.

If you wanted to make an improvement, you might consider integrating this with https://wordpress.org/plugins/syntaxhighlighter/

Works well on WP 4.0

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.

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

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.
