Unexpected markdown rendering: newlines #193
When writing a post, I assume I'm writing in some flavor or markdown.
The expected rendered output, in order to better comply with standard markdown rendering, would be to join all the lines together into a single paragraph until an empty line is found.
Thanks for the great software !
Hi @cerisara, thanks for the issue report.
Can you show an example of a post that is not behaving as expected?
Also can you define a newline and an empty line, so I know the HTML you are expecting?
I tried a small test and found the following:
All that said, I'm eager to get this all sorted out for you.
Thanks for the input @cerisara!
This is indeed an ongoing discussion we've been having. But the choice for honoring newlines exactly as they're typed was a deliberate design decision, to make the platform usable for such writing as poetry. (As such, I'll close this issue -- but feel free to continue discussing.)
Still, we'd like to potentially support different Markdown flavors, configured at the instance-level. If you have any thoughts on a standard we should use, we'd love to hear about it.
Thank you both of you for your reply !
