It had been a while since I’d played around with setting up WordPress. I’d configured syntax highlighting for code snippets before but not together with using Markdown. But hey wouldn’t it be neat to write articles in Markdown? I’ve grown used to using it lately.
So I set out to see what I could get working. I didn’t expect it to take that long; how hard could it be? Well it turned out to be rather a pain in the neck; so I wrote this post to help you avoid that pain (and to provide a bit of a cathartic release for me!).
