This plugin allows you to write posts (of any post type) using the Markdown syntax. The plugin converts the Markdown into HTML prior to saving the post. When editing a post, the plugin converts it back into Markdown syntax.

The plugin also allows you to enable Markdown in comments and bbPress forums. In these instances the plugin adds a toolbar, and preview of the processed Markdown with Prettify syntax highlighter applied (similiar to that used in the Stack Exchange websites such as WordPress Stack Exchange).

WP-Markdown stores the processed HTML, so deactivating the plugin will not affect your posts, comments or bbPress forums.

How do I use Markdown syntax?

For information on how to use Markdown syntax, please read: Markdown: syntax.

What happens to the post content if I uninstall the plugin?

The plugin uses Markdown to generate the appropriate HTML prior to the post saving to the database. When you edit a post, it is converted back to Markdown syntax.
Once the plugin is uninstalled you’ll simply revert to editing the posts’ HTML.

How do I embed content?

A clean install of WordPress allows you to (for example) include a YouTube url on a separate line, whereupon it will automatically embed the video. This is not possible with WP-Markdown installed (*I tried – I broke more things. But if you manage it, feel free to make a pull-request:*).

You’ll need to use the [embed] shortcode.

How do I prevent a bit of the page being parsed as Markdown?

Enclose it in a div tag. It’ll be ignored.

How do I allow the contents of a `div` tag to be parsed as Markdown?

Use <div markdown="1">.

Updating site to PHP 8.1 and Wordpress to 6.1.1 and this plugin is causing errors: htdocs/wp-content/plugins/wp-markdown/markdown-extra.php. Error message: Array and string offset access syntax with curly braces is no longer supported Luckily all of the posts that were using this plugin are still fine (since they’ve are migrated to use WP syntax at the time of writing). But I won’t be able to edit them as markdown or post new posts as markdown. Time to look for a new markdown support plugin

Was amazed it even features a wysiwyg comparison preview in real time. Beautiful just beautiful piece of plugin. Too bad it seems abandoned, it will be a scary ride to update my WordPress version in the long run.

With WP 5.2 it generates errors of the form: Warning: “continue” targeting switch is equivalent to “break”. Did you mean to use “continue 2”? in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-markdown/markdownify/markdownify.php on line 299 Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-markdown/markdownify/markdownify.php:299) in /public_html/wp-admin/includes/misc.php on line 1196

Just what I need for my not-so-technical members! Thank you!

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.
