This plugin processes your posts and comments using the Parsedown library. It is a direct replacement for PHP Markdown Extra by Michel Fortin.

== Description ==

**Got a bug report or want to contribute?** Please do so on the [GitHub issue tracker]( or [submit a pull request](

[Parsedown]( is an efficient, modern PHP implementation of the [Markdown]( syntax originally developed by John Gruber. This plugin runs your posts and comments through the [Parsedown Extra]( version, which has additional features that are part of the [Markdown Extra]( extension by Michel Fortin.

Michel wrote the [original Markdown plugin for WordPress](, and this aims to be a 100% compatible drop-in replacement for that. Michel's original plugin is no longer supported as of February 1, 2014.

So **why Parsedown?** It's [faster](, [more consistent]( and is being [actively developed](

Development of this WordPress plugin [takes place over on GitHub]( If you have any support requests, I do monitor the support forums on here, or you can [contact me directly](

== Installation ==

1. Upload the `parsedown-wp` folder to the `wp-content/plugins/` directory
2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in the WordPress admin

That's it. All your posts and comments are now being processed by Parsedown.

== Changelog ==

= 0.3 =

* Fixed comment text not showing up in admin (issue #2)

= 0.2 =

Fixed unintended behavior of converting HTML special characters. WordPress does this automatically, and converting makes curly quotes not work.

= 0.1 =

Initial release.
