This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Typewriter completely removes the “Visual Editor” feature in WordPress and replaces it
with a simple Markdown editor so that you can join sites like StackOverflow and Github in writing in the
simple and growingly popular Markdown format.

For the more technical among you, Typewriter removes the TinyMCE editor and defaults to a Markdown specific “Text” editor
and parses the output using MarkdownExtra.

ਅਕਸਰ ਪੁੱਛੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਸਵਾਲ

What is Markdown?

Do I have to convert my HTML content?

No. You can still use normal HTML in your posts and pages. Markdown will simply ignore the HTML and only parse
any Markdown specific code that it finds.

What happens to my content if I deactivate the plugin?

Unfortunaetly your content will not be parsed by MarkdownExtra anymore and will appear like it does in the text
editor. In this case you would need to convert your Markdown content to normal HTML.

This plugin probably did great when it was compatible, but threw up a big error and disabled some admin screens and had to be deleted. After deletion, the Visual Editor can be re-enabled by going to your user profile, and some options on the editor page can be reset to put things back the way they were, so afaik nothing bad happened.
