Markdown Support by BOP5

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (2 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 9
Released: 18 Jun 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 25
Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

This mod introduces support for "Markdown" syntax in vBulletin posts. Markdown is an alternative to BB Code and HTML. In some situations it may be preferable to use Markdown when formatting posts instead of BB Code.

More info on Markdown at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown

This mod allows you to specify one or more forums on your site which will be Markdown enabled.

Please note: In a Markdown Enabled forum BB Code will not work so don't turn a forum with existing posts into a Markdown forum- you'd be best off making a new forum for this mod.

This mod makes use of a redistributable PHP library available here:
http://michelf.com/projects/php-markdown/

Syntax of Markdown is available here:
http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax

The Library Used is "Markdown Extra" which adds extra formatting beyond the standard Markdown options:
http://michelf.com/projects/php-markdown/extra/

An example of Markdown Code is:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

See the screenshot of how this will turn into properly formatted HTML with the mod enabled.

In addition to enabling selected forums for Markdown support the mod can at your option disable the advanced editor controls (like the BB Code toolbars) in the editors since that format will not work with Markdown anyway.

Current Version: 0.9
New in 0.9: Initial release- This is a stable Beta, no known bugs.

There is a VB3 version and a VB4 version. Please install the correct version.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

BOP, I'm curious as to the practical application of another markup language. Is it capable of doing things that BB Code cannot? Maybe there is a significant amount of Markdown content that I'm not aware of.

Thanks!

Pete

That is a more proper way, but both will work if you use the http://. I guess the <url> is a shortcut or something.

I have no great love for "markdown" - I made this mod per a request- someone who had a forum for programmers I believe wanted markdown support. It's just a matter a preference IMO, I always found myself typing _like this_ or *this* to add emphasis anyway, it's nice to see those really many something in a language like Markdown.

The popular site http://stackoverflow.com uses Markdown in all their "forums." Now I lnow how to use it.

It's used a lot for documentation. It's a lot more human readable than BBCode so it's a little easier to read/write (IMO). WYSIWYG can get frustrating - this provides a nice middle ground where you can tell what the formatting is at a glance, without actually using WYSIWYG.

GitHub is another big player that uses (or supports) it.

That's what I was wondering and why I asked. Documentation makes sense.

Hi and thanks for the great addon. Updated markdown.php to v1.0.2 from the author's website, works good.

Question: do you have an idea how to make quotations work with markdown enabled?
