Can you use Markdown syntax in answering?

It would be great to have the utility available - I wonder if this could be done?

Markdown is not currently supported by AllAnswered. We are working on it and it will be available in future releases.

+1 to the working on it part (but -1 to the 8 months ago part).

Yes, it has been a while. AllAnswered is a general purpose knowledge management platform. WYSIWYG editor is more intuitive for most people. But we also understand that markdown is highly desirable for people in tech/programming/software fields. Our first attempt was to support a subset of markdown within our current editor. But it did not work out. The two simply do not jive together. So we have to scrap that and work on a separate markdown editor. That's why it took so long. Once it is ready, a user can change their default editor in their profile.

We are still actively developing it and we will keep you all posted when it is ready.

+1 Code currently looks awful! It misses code highlighting as well as code scroller. Also, a post length restriction should not include the code.
