I am a big fan of the Markdown for WordPress and bbPress and have been using that for my blog for a while. But I noticed on a lot of themes it would refuse to work on excerpts on some theme. Till now
So when I got the New Technology Website up and running I noticed that the theme I was using was refusing to convert markdown to html on excerpts. After some research I noticed that some themes use “the_excerpt” tag for displaying the excerpt and the plug in refused to work for that. So after digging in to the code and some changes I was able to get it to work! I am going to contact the author to see if he wants to include the changes in his code or should I just resubmit the plugin to wordpress. For now you can download the updated version from the site.
