Markdown is widely used across the web. It’s the cornerstone of quick, simple and safe text formatting.
In essence, Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. It is designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats using a tool by the same name. Markdown is often used to format readme files, for writing messages in online discussion forums, and to create rich text using a plain text editor.
It can be used in both Posts and Comments throughout PeepSo.
There are settings where you can allow Markdown in Posts and / or Comments.
Navigate to WP Admin -> PeepSo -> Configuration -> Markdown and flip the switches. There’s also a quick cheat sheet on available Markdown formatting.
Markdown can be used in PeepSo profile fields for Text Field type only, you just need to change the Appearance > Display setting to MarkDown formatted.
When you switch this setting ON this will allow syntax generating <h> tags for markdown headers
This will replace the default MarkDown <p> tag rendering with <br> tags when you switch this setting ON
The above text formatting styles can be combined too. You can do what you want.
Markdown can also create ordered lists. Simply write a number and a dot / full stop, like this: 1. Milk 2. Bread 3. Butter 4. Chese and it will turn it int to:
You can also create unordered lists. Similarly to ordered lists you can just put a dash or an asterisk in front of a word. Like: – / *. Lists will then be created.
You can also include inline code by putting `in front of a line of code and closing with the same symbol`.
You can create headers by putting # following by space and your header text, put more # to create different headers, eg: ## for H2, ### for H3
