Sometimes I love to rant too … :-)


I’ve been meaning to get back to writing, but every time I open up the WP editor, I always tend to feel “ rushed ” ? Which is something I do not necessarily consider healthy. 😉 So I‘ve tried WP’s post by email feature, and since I know WP supports markdown I finally thought,I had lucked out ! Because I love markdown, better yet … I‘ll source the file I used to create this post, from my cloudup account here.

But now comes the tricky part : No matter what I tried — whether I used Gmail’s plain text, or rich text feature — it always came out wrong. That is : WP wrapped all my links in regular html. 😦

So what does this all mean ? It means : That I, as of yet, still can’t focus on my writing — because I’m still too busy worrying about its style, and format. 😦

Thus came along markdown here, while providing a nice little addon for chrome, and it seems to be promising. Then again : While composing a new email in Gmail, neither the shortcut ctrl+alt+M, nor the corresponding right-click action seemed to work ? It does help, and work, to open — shift+click — your composer in a new window. ← Always a catch. 😆

↑ Nevermind the last paragraph, as I figured out the cause ! All I needed to do, was to restart my browser. 😆 😆 😆

Therefore : with a little help of the MHCS — and WP’s MDQR — I hope to bore you all with many, many more posts to come ! 😀

Meanwhile :

A while ago I finally got Alex Gorbachev’s syntax highlighting to work on my tumblr, among things ! 😉 Thus, I really feel tempted to ditch WP altogether. 😉

Anyway :

I use the <pre> method :

<pre class="brush: bash">
~/Wisdom # of Confucius
</pre>
<script type="text/javascript">
     SyntaxHighlighter.all()
</script>

Here follow some examples, as given on the markdown here page.

var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting";
alert(s);
s = "Python syntax highlighting"
print s
No language indicated, so no syntax highlighting. 
But let's throw in a <b>tag</b>.

PS : WP still seems to choke on the <abbr> …</abbr> codes I use :

  1. Reblogged this on BWB is: and commented:

    Ok, so this post actually belongs on this blog ! But since it’s about the focus on format — and style — instead of content. As opposed to focusing on what I wish to convey … And seeing as I’m the author of both blogs, I’ll simply ‘ reblog ’ it again here. 🙂
