#3164 new enhancement

Plugin Readme Standard > Update Markdown formatting

Reported by: barry.hughes Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


The WordPress Plugin Readme Standard implies that readmes follow the Markdown rules detailed here (Daring Fireball).

However, that doesn't seem to be so (indented code blocks aren't respected, as an example). In #2655 (comment 2), though, it mentions that Markdown Extra is the library that is actually used.

If that's correct, can we swap out the Daring Fireball reference for the Markdown Extra one?

This probably explains the issue in #2931 too.
