Add-On Type(s)



Extends on the functionality of PHP Markdown.

I consider the Markdown plugin to be a necessary addition to each and every EE site that I develop, and so I’ve taken it upon myself to update the existing plugin to use PHP Markdown Extra by Michel Fortin.  This should be used as a replacement for the current plugin, rather than an additional one.

To sum it up, here are the new features:

* Use Markdown inside HTML blocks
* Add id attribute to headers
* Tables
* Definition lists
* Footnotes
* Abbreviations
