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
By , for WP 3.9.1

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

nicely done

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.

Nice Plugin

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

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.
