After trying to use Markdown on this Wiki with the support of a plugin, I’ve made the decision to purge it and rely on Wiki formatting.
There were too many bugs and edge cases with markdown rendering, and none of the plugins seem particularly well maintained.
I have kept one markdown plugin installed, which allows me to continue using markdown where it is within a defined codeblock.
<markdown> **This is bold text within a markdown block.** </markdown>
Try pandoc! is an online tool for converting between different markup syntax, including Markdown to DokuWiki.
