Inbetween contracts over the last year or so I have been beavering away building a CMS with a difference. https://www.graphia.co.uk/ It's aimed at companies that have huge libraries of documents that every employee needs (operating procedures, handbooks, guides, etc) locked away in inflexible propriatory formats (aka Sharepoint/Confluence). * documents are stored in plain text (Markdown) files * the 'database' is a Git repository (but end-users needn't know!) * authors can work online using the web editor (but power users can clone the repo and work in whichever editor they like) * the documentation is 'published' to a static site, the …

I just noticed yesterday that FB Messenger ate my asterisks. Today, I just noticed that it was actually parsing my asterisks into bold! And it parses Markdown's syntax for italics too! I swear this is new. Try sending someone a message with Facebook and you can do: `*bold* or _italics_` ... Yes, it's not *exactly* Markdown b/c Markdown requires two asterisks for bold, or else it functions as a synonym for italics with one asterisk. But still ...

The current page is here: https://www.daniweb.com/welcome/syntax Sorry, but not sure whether wading through DW's history of BBCode is relevant to anybody. I gave up the will to live after the 100th paragraph of why Markdown and who did what to whom. Urgh. Can't there just be a table? `HTML tag | Markdown | Example` or something similar? Then just a simple, "No HTML tags, BBCode or any other Markdown will be parsed". Sorry if I'm coming across like a grumpy old fart. Maybe it's because I am. :(

Slowly but surely, I'm making changes to our editor to get it up to speed with other editors out there. Firstly, I made the font size for the live preview larger at I forget who's recommendation (sorry!). You can click on it to hide the preview so it doesn't get in the way while you're doing other things on the page, but it will reappear as soon as you start typing again. Secondly, I "fixed" the behavior of some of the buttons. (Not all are done yet!) But now if you click on Bold, Italic, Inline Code, Link, Heading or …

This has been frustrating me for about 20 minutes already and I don't want to spend much more time on it, so any help would be much appreciated. The editor that we use which syntax highlights Markdown text has has bug in which it highlights text as code when it isn't supposed to. The regex to denote code currently is `/^(k:\t|\s{4,})/` which basically means find a line that begins with a tab or at least four spaces. I need to change this to say "find a line that is preceded by a blank line (aka by at least two \n\n) …

I've been working on our editor a bit tonight, and there are some changes to its functionality. Now, when you click the buttons such as Bold, Italic, etc., the editor automatically gets focus and highlights the dummy text. Therefore, you can immediately start typing to replace it. Also, I went ahead and took Ancient Dragon's suggestion to highlight to quote something. If you want to quote text in a post, click and drag your mouse to select the text (as if you were going to copy/paste it) and then simply click in the textbox where you want to insert it. …
