bbP Markdown

Description

This is the Markdown plugin for bbPress that I needed, but could not find. It replaces the standard editor with a responsive Markdown form that includes a preview and formatting help. The Markdown is parsed using PHP Markdown(Extra) and saved as a regular HTML bbPress post. The Markdown is saved separately for later editing. The plugin can be activated and deactivated without affecting your bbPress data, it uninstalls cleanly (deleting any saved Markdown code) and is multisite compatible.

Tip: You can give the plugin a slight performance boost if your forum is Markdown only or you don’t care that some non-Markdown posts are displayed slightly different than before (e.g. not turning newlines into paragraphs or no longer making URLs automatically clickable), by adding the following to your theme’s functions.php: add_filter( 'bbpmd_remove_output_filters_for_all_posts', '__return_true' );

Amazing! Anyone has been looking for a Markdown editor for the bbPress forums? I’ve been turning the Internet upside down to get exactly what this plugin does! It works as expected with bbPress, but with the BuddyBoss Platform forums too! You just need to adjust your theme’s CSS rules for proper display in the preview tab, otherwise, everything works like I couldn’t dare to dream! Thanks for this simple yet essential plugin.

The plugin works well. I think I will give it a try and use it in my next project.

Thank you for this well-designed plugin, it works seamlessly with existing bbPress setup. I appreciate the effort and thought put into it, for example, how it integrates techniques from several other related plugins, and how it uninstalls cleanly. One thing I wish it had is a way to apply the same Markdown editor to normal comments as well.
