Site Upgrade: Markdown slightly broken.

I updated to Wordpress 2.0.3 to address security problems. It seems that it doesn’t play well with Markdown syntax so some rendering might be a little bit off.

The specific problem is yet to be determined but I’ve see the following two things so far:

Markdown angle bracket linking is broken.

Any http followed by a colon is being turned into http<space>: meanin that <link goes here> breaks.

Bulleted lists

They are somehow getting munged when they are saved/rendered. Not sure the root cause of this this one yet.

Sorry for the horrible formatting, I’ll hopefully get this fixed today or tomorrow.

  1. So, any luck figuring this out? I’ve just switched from Typo to Wordpress, and since I’ve used Markdown on all my old Typo posts, none of them look right :(
