Should forum posts be MarkDown powered?

Member since: 2011

Any ideas? I would find it convient if forum posts and answers could be posted in markdown syntax. Does anybody uses other toolbar buttons than `Insert code` in Text field?

    Hey, Valdis,

    I think this is a very fine idea. I'm not using almost any (other than code). Cut/copy/paste, I guess noone uses that :D and bold/italic/underline/undo/redo either, when you can do that with keyboard.

    Bullet lists and insert link functionality are probably necessary to have, although you can do that in MarkDown syntax as well.

    There is a project for markdown support in EPiServer. The only disadvantage is that it replaces TinyMCE. It would be good to be able to switch between TinyMCE and Markdown for each article separately.

    Here is the link to library:
