How do i make this work ?
Well, thats quite easy!
Just download this plugin, go to the plugins area within WP admin, choose “Add new”, choose “upload”, choose the zipped package, and choose “install”. Don’t forget to activate the plugin.
Dont change each textarea!
This Markitup plugin hooks on each single textarea on your website. This means even the textarea’s you dont want to hook on.
It’s possible to change this but you have to change a little piece of code….
Within the plugin directory, there is a php file named “MarkItUp.php“. This file contains a function named “MarkItUpFilesFooter“.
It looks like this:
You can specify a specific textarea, the only thing you have to do, is change “$(‘textarea’)” into the id of your textarea. So if your textarea has the id comment (id=”comment”) you have to change it accordingly as shown below.
All css files can be changed to your own dreams! Probably you have to! You can edit them through FTP or just the plugin editor within the WP admin area!
Do not put style modifications into the existing css files. Plugin updates will overwrite your changes. Modifications must be saved in another css file.
- Added: Blockquote tag
