##Download and Installation

Download and install the plugin using the Plugin Manager using the following URL. Refer to [[:Plugins]] on how to install plugins manually.


If the page name ends with ''.md'' suffix, it gets automatically parsed using PHP Markdown Extra. To use that markup in other pages, the content must be embedded in a markdown block. For example:

Header 1

some code


Header 2

- A
- simple
- list

1. And
2. numbered
3. list

Quite intuitive? *emphasis*, **strong**, etc.

###Front matter Front matter is a text block at the top of dokuwiki page with .md suffix. It begins and ends with '—'. Looks like this:


Why front matter?

I love this markdown extra plugin, the best feature is .md suffix. And I love tag plugin too, but I can't use it with page with .md suffix as {{tag>tat1 tag2 tag3}} syntax will not work within . So I added this front matter feature.

For syntax, refer to
