Writing in Markdown Question
I got a question in our workshop today that I do not know how to answer --- can Commons users write contents in markdown? They asked because "it would be great that it supports markdown so that we can write faster." Question coming from a math professor (if that helps provide background?)

WordPress doesn't support this out of the box, though it can be enabled by plugin. Jetpack has the feature https://wpengine.com/resources/using-markdown-wordpress/, and there may be other plugins on the Commons - maybe Scott knows more?

Thanks for this info Boone. I wasn't sure if markdown was something that the commons would strip out (akin to iframes) but writing it through a plugin makes sense. I will pass this along to the faculty member.
Scott if you know about any other possibilities I will send that info along too.
Have a good weekend all!
