I’ve never used markdown previously on a website and didn’t give this much thought when it first appeared, but starting to realise how useful this could be. Am I right in thinking a new paragraph is created using markdown by simply hitting the enter key and that this will be read correctly as a new paragraph rather than a break?
Learning the correct syntax shouldn’t be that hard, however I found a few markdown editors yesterday like this one online that allow you to edit the text, rather like the formatting commands on his forum.
Using a markdown editor, it should be possible to create big chunks of contents like long lists or big areas of text and simply paste the contents to a single paragraph bric. This would be a time saver and presumably keep the website very light.
There do not appear to be options that allow for the fine control of text sizing or images that is possible using custom classes in Blocs, however we could pick and choose as required. My only slight concern is how markdown might impact Seo.
