Markdown Changes


#1

Not sure when this happened, but the way Discourse interprets markdown (or maybe markdown itself?) has changed. Not sure if this is a known issue, a deliberate change, something only in night mode for some reason, or what.

Things like # for headings no longer work.

#Is this a heading?

##How about this?

###Not on my screen.

The h1, h2, h3, h4, etc. HTML tags still work fine, though.

Not sure what else has changed, I just noticed it while looking through some of the larger posts that have multiple headings, 'cause they’re all broken now.

EDIT: Google Chrome Version 64.0.3282.186 64-bit, macOS 10.12.6

My headings work if I put a space after the #'s

Hashtag Wow

Hashtag Whoa

Well how 'bout that, amazing

So it’s probably just a Discourse change; if anybody made a big post with headings in it in the early days of the site they may want to double check that it still looks right, then.
