Need help with Markdown plug-ins

Added by Michael R almost 8 years ago

Hi all,

I'm almost certain that I'm doing something stupid because I can't find any other indication of similar problems. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm evaluating Redmine. I exported the 0.9-stable branch yesterday, the install process went very smoothly, and everything that I tested appears to be working as expected.

I then installed the redmine_markdown_formatter (http://github.com/bitherder/redmine_markdown_formatter) and restarted the web server. Under Admin->Plugins I see the Markdown formatter listed.

However, when I create a new wiki page or edit an existing page, Markdown syntax does not work properly (i.e. everything appears as it did before installing the plugin).

I tried creating new projects, and using the redmine_markdown_extra_formatter (http://github.com/juno/redmine_markdown_extra_formatter) but the behaviour is the same.

I know that the plug-in code is loading up at boot, because, in addition to seeing the plugins listed on the Admin->Plugins page, I can force a crash by modifying the plug-in code to deliberately introduce a bug.

Do I need to flip a switch somewhere to get this to work?

Thanks very much,
Michael

Some additional detail, in case it is helpful:

$> ruby -v
ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [universal-darwin10.0]
$> rails --version
Rails 2.3.5

Also note that I'm using Webrick on Mac OS 10.6.1 with sqlite and r3307 of Redmine 0.9-stable.

I assume that you've changed "Text formatting" option under Administration -> Settings -> General tab, right?

Thanks Alexander -- that was the issue. I managed to scour all of the Settings tabs except General. Unfortunately this detail is missing from the plugins' docs.
