Markdown-Support

Postby ploeger » Tue Sep 30, 2014 5:29 am

Hi!


One thing I always hate about the old vBulleting forums was the editor and the editor in Community is not much better. With github and such, I'm accustomed to clean editors, that support a markup language (such as markdown).


Is this possible here?


Thanks.



Kind regards

Dennis

Hi Dennis. Honestly, I'm not sure if it is possible. What I do know is that your feedback was seen (Sorry it wasn't acknowledged). I know it is in the wheel house and the guys are researching a solution. Is there an editor that you have used that you consider a gold standard? Is there possibility of grabbing a screenshot of the aspects you like best?

Well, actually, I'm not talking about an editor. I'm more talking about the interpretation of the non-rich-formatted text here.


Take the guys at github, for example. They're interpreting Markdown tags in issues, commits and so on just with a standard text editor (while they actually offer a preview-feature).


See that editor in action here:




To learn more about Markdown, take a look at the Markdown website.

(I'm actually thinking about writing a Zimlet, that interpretes plain-text-mails that way :) )

I know this is an old thread, but I was searching for zuora markdown, found this, and then figured out that http://markdown-here.com/features.html, which I’ve used for ages with Gmail, works in a Zuora compose email window!

From the above, it looks like it also works in these forums! :D
