store_markdown is also optional. If not specified then Markdown text will be stored in custom fields of WordPress. If set to n then the Markdown text will not be stored.

###For Upgraded Users

Defining account info in .vimrc is now obsolesced, if you have correspond defination in .vimrc (for older version vimpress), they will automaticly copied into ~/.vimpressrc, now you're safe to remove the VIMPRESS defination in .vimrc.

Users from the 2.x.x versions of vimrepress, need to run the to upgrade the their posts data to be compatible with the 3.x.x version of vimrepress, or their Markdown source can not be used to re-edit by a newer vimrepress.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
