One of the small plugins that I’ve maintained – and used – for sometime is the Markdown Code For WordPress plugin.
I initially wrote the plugin last year as a way to easily include my most frequently used markdown syntax into my post and comment editing.
Specifically, the plugin supports:
- Backticks for `code`.
- Single-asterisks *for emphasis*.
- Double-asterisks **for strong**.
That’s all – short and sweet.
But with some of the latest changes to Jetpack and while I’ve been working on a number of smaller projects (or cleaning house of some of them), I went ahead and made some minor updates to the plugin.
