Markdown Support with DNN Blog Posts

Markdown Support with DNN Blog Posts

Even if DNN known as best CMS in .net platform, plus some excellent WYSIWYG editors, such as CKEdior and RadEditor, it interrupts writing with some weird issues from time to time; WYSIWYG makes it easy to write poor HTML. So we try to find alternative instead of WYSIWYG Editor, a quicker, more efficient way to publish web texts.

Markdown mirrors HTML. When you write in Markdown you’re thinking about structure and meaning, not appearance. Quality control is easier in Markdown than WYSIWYG.

With best blogging module #SunBlogNuke, we will help you get started into the wonderful world of Markdown in DNN! Blogging your way and enjoy life. :)
