I love Markdown and use it for all my blogs independent of blog-system (I currently use WordPress, Serendipity and b2evolution and Markdown is perfect in that sense). It’s lightweight and beats any WYSIWYG editor on the market ;)
There was a Markdown plugin for b2evo, but it didn’t work with the new plugin API (and the author hadn’t updated the post since 2004) so I decided to make one myself.
- Unzip the plugin and upload the files to your b2evolution /plugin/ folder.
- In admin navigate to App settings -> Plugins, find Markdown Extra and click ‘Install’.
- If you want to enable Markdown for comments, you do this in the plugin configuration
That’s it. Let me know if you experience any problems.
