PHP Markdown 1.0

No
responses

Matt Read posted a quick mention of the release of PHP Markdown on the WordPress Support forums so I thought I would pass this along to everyone. Michel Fortin has ported over John Gruber’s original Markdown into a plugin for WordPress as well as a tool for bBlog, Smarty, and other PHP-based tools. Here is some information directly from Michel’s site: PHP Markdown is a port of the original Markdown program from John Gruber. Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML). The overriding design goal for Markdown’s formatting syntax is to make it as readable as possible. The idea is that a Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it’s been marked up with tags or formatting instructions. While Markdown’s syntax has […]

LinkyLoo, WordPress Hack, XHTML Tips

jamietalbot.com, X-Valid: This plugin validates your XHTML before you post on your WordPress 1.2 Mingus blog. (from the wordpress forums) It handles incorrectly nested tags and improper attribute values and works one time only at the point of posting or editing. If problems are found that can’t be fixed automatically, a window pops up listing the errors. This feedback can also be set manually by checking a box at posting time.

Code, XHTML 1.0, XHTML 1.1, XHTML Tips

I ran into some trouble with the forms validation because I was using a javascript:document.formname.submit() which would require a name for the form. As it turns out, form name is deprecated in XHTML 1.0 Strict and XHTML 1.1. In other words <form name=”blah” … > is not valid in XHTML 1.0 Strict and XHTML 1.1. To get around this issue, I used <form id=”blah” … > and in my link I used javascript:document.forms['blah'].submit(); which validates correctly. Also, to get around the carriage return problem in input tags of forms (for input tags to validate correctly in XHTML 1.0 Strict and XHTML 1.1, they have to surrounded by <p> or h1 etc. ) I surrounded my inputs by (gasp) fieldsets and then hid it by styling the fieldset so I could get them all in one line. Im sure a lot of people know about these already, but this is for […]

Validate XHTML before you post

10
responses

Following up on an old article form Jesse Ruderman I wanted to have a way from within WordPress to validate XHTML through the Quicktags buttons. I rewrote the “Bloggidate” set of hacks to work from within WordPress. So this will let you validate the content of your post before you actually post it to the blog to ensure things do not ever break in terms of validation. Just type in the post and click on validate from the quicktags. The installation is relatively simple and I have included functions for both XHTML 1.0 Transitional and XHTML 1.0 Strict. You can download the instructions from here: http://weblogtoolscollection.com/b2-img/validatexhtml.txt PS: Tested and working in both FF and IE Again, much of the code comes from Jesse Ruderman, so thanks go out to him.

Amputator: an ampersand-encoding plugin for Movable Type: For future possible plugin development for WP. I would like to work with Robinson’s “Sustaining Validation” idea and make it work (somewhat) for WordPress. Edit: Looks like this is already built into WordPress (since the 0.7 days)
