BBCode or Markdown

BBCode or Markdown

Postby IrascibleOne » May 11th, 2015, 8:18 pm

Something I am considering is using something like Markdown instead of bbCode in DS8. May not go with markdown specifically, but if not Markdown it'd be something similar. Some reasons why:

  • Easier to write in your own text editor
  • The 'code' is generally more readable
  • Stackoverflow, Wikipedia, and others use some flavor of this basic markup, so having a basic knowledge of it is useful beyond DS.
  • That also means a new member is probably more likely to know Markdown than bbCode
  • I like it better than bbCode.
For the most part though, it's probably going to come down to personal preference. So what do you guys think?

Awesome, it shall be done.

And no problem, I've been a bit busy myself. Still making progress on the site, but I've been falling behind on the schedule I had for DS8.
