Problog has worked well for me so far, but being a developer, I much prefer to write blog posts in markdown format. Am I missing something or is this not a feature? Pasting markdown into the html view doesn't seem to work... Really a bummer as the base RainLab plugin supports it but this one is so much better, yet missing a key feature.
Thanks @ChadStrat, and really, great plugin! I'm proud to be supporting October and fellow developers. Cheers!
Anyway, after first trying the RainLab.Blog plugin and being able to see the live markdown preview right next to your editor, I am really missing that feature now... it was pretty slick seeing that live preview while writing.. but any sort of markdown support would be awesome at this stage.
Anything I could do to help make this or some sort of markdown support happen?
Another workaround is to include a partial that references a piece of markdown content... so thanks for including the partial tag! Is there a way to specify parameters for a partial? For example [[partial::partialname param="val"]]
ChadStrat, nothing less than awesome!! Your proposal sounds perfect. I wouldn't want to lose the WYSIWYG if it were a client site, so having that option would be ideal. Loving everything else so far, let me know if I can contribute in any way! :)
I just found this github issue that is somewhat related. The linked screencast is awesome, but perhaps beyond the scope of your plugin modifications. Thought it was a cool way to handle images and wanted to share it. Cheers!
Thanks for being awesome ChadStrat! Not sure if possible or not but it may be more flexible if markdown mode could be enabled on a post by post basis. More code oriented posts could be written in markdown while other posts might use the wysiwyg... Wanted to share this thought too. Looking forward to whatever you do!
Go to the Settings -> ProBlog area and in the "editor" tab, enable markdown.
To add an image, simply tab over to the "general" tab and upload a new image, then click on the link icon and copy the url. You can then use image markdown or click on the image button to add the markdown snippet and replace the url. A placeholder is there as a temp.
If you want your image response, just simply type a standard <img src="" width="100%"/>
Let me know if there is some functionality you think could be added. It's pretty basic right now. But still cool just the same.
