Writing with Markdown in a Self-Hosted WordPress

WordPress is great, isn’t it?

So today I was trying to find how to write using Markdown inside WordPress. Actually WordPress.com does have that feature but my Self-Hosted WordPress doesn’t have it by default. I mean, really?

So I went looking and actually there is a decent plugin to write posts in Markdown. The plugin is WP-Markdown.

If you’re are on the same boat and want to write your posts using distraction free Markdown just install it and then enable it:

WordPress > Settings > Writing

Be happy :)

Hello world!

This is my new blog!

I used to have a brazilian portuguese blog here on grace.ac years ago and for many reasons I closed it.

Nevertheless I’m back blogging!

From now on the blog is going to be written in English simply because I need a place to practice English writing. (As an enrolled master’s degree student I might need to polish that skill, right?)

Expect to read about WordPress, productivity, tech, business, iOS and mac apps.

And thank your for you visit. I appreciate it ;)
