For those who have been reading this blog for sometime, you know that I’m a fan of using lines of code in my posts.
I’m not referring to the larger code block (I use SyntaxHighlighter Evolved for that), but for code that exists in a single line
much like this. The thing is, when I’m drafting my posts, I often place those strings in backticks –
like this – and then go through and replace them code tags prior to publishing the post.
And I love Markdown as much as the developer, but I’m not ready to fully abandon the WordPress editor for it. Instead, I’d rather have just a few tags supported that I frequently use and be able to have them replaced automatically.
So I wrote a really simple plugin for doing just that: Markdown Code For WordPress.
