Nice Plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

Nice plugin for WordPress. Thank you. But it not working for my custom comment form. How it work? Thanks again.

Does not work - Parse Error
By ,

I tried it and I get this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STATIC, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/XXXX/wp-content/plugins/wp-markdown/wp-markdown.php on line 30

Too buggy
By ,

The plugin works but :
- sometimes, when saving, the page, modifications are not saved
- unable to make [embed] shortcode work to embed youtube videos for example
- unable to make <div> tag work to embed youtube videos for example

When the tinymce bar is replaced, all other buttons (added by you theme or by a plugin) are not displayed anymore. Annoying.

Great but not cons

It can be better if it is fully compatible with MOU editor

Extremely useful for developers
By , for WP 3.6

It's so nice to not have to finally convert my markdown code to html on my own before dropping it into my posts, pages, and download post types.

Very good - one complaint
By , for WP 3.5.2

The plugin is very good, but I have one complaint. Because I write a lot of code in my articles, < and > get replaced to < and > after submit. So if I edit my article, I always have to change those. This is a huge dealbreaker.

The perfect Markdown

New Review:

I found a bug pretty soon after installing this plugin and decided it wasn't worth it, but after posting a review, the developer quickly fixed the bug and I haven't yet run into any other problems.

Some documentation on how this plugin differs from standard markdown would be helpful, but I am very pleased as it is.

Thanks so much!

Old Review:
Many basic things work ok, but the corner cases are not handled properly. For example:

images as links:

[1]: http://google.com/
[2]: http://google.com/logo.png

very difficult/impossible to embed raw html into a page

Well done

This works really well. My only quirk with it is the syntax highlighting doesn't work for me, but that's not the fault of this plugin; I've ran into the same issue on other code highlighting plugins.
