Reported by: tazotodua's profile tazotodua Owned by: dd32's profile dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


there is a bug in parser.

the example readme.txt (of plugin )
contains such part:


  • Billing state
  • Billing phone
  • Billing email
  • Shipping first name
  • Shipping last name


however, in plugin directory, it is rendered incorrectly:

you see extra incorrect spaces between lines.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is intentional in the Markdown "Specs" as per although I can see how it seems incorrect at first glance. (Specifically, see the section If list items are separated by blank lines, Markdown will wrap the items in <p> tags in the HTML output.)

I would suggest removing the blank lines from the Markdown file (readme.txt).

We use MarkdownExtra by MichelF which has an interactive demo available which might be of use.

I'm closing this as invalid as I don't want to see any more changes placed upon our markdown treatment, and it being seemingly correct per the libraries followed spec.

In 8037:

Plugin Directory: Remove the margins on li > p in readme contents to avoid lists looking incorrect when list paragraphs are used.

Fixes #4032.

With another look at this, I realised that we can work around this with some styling, I think this ultimately results in it looking better than it did before on the whole.

An example of where it looked better previous is which had consistent spaces between the list items, but now have uneven spacing.

In 8038:
