Literally WTF

    Come on now, *Markdown isn't that hard* You have to escape both of the inner asterisks.

    Edit: I say that and then I get a formatting Discobug. Literally WTF how hard can it be to make Markdown work correctly @discoursebot

    [EDIT: Added the raw text to point out a bug, i.e., missing stuff after the asterisks -b]



  • Oh great you can't even see it in the blockquote. WTF!!



  • Markdown is a literal WTF. I can never get it to do what I want on the first try, and that even includes the formatting buttons in the editor!



  • Come on now, *Markdown isn't that hard* You have to escape both of the inner asterisks.

    It actually does the italics correctly, unlike reddit, which I swear worked, but then it CHOPS OFF THE REST OF THE LINE



  • I had no idea what the bug was until you said this. I added the raw to point out that stuff isn't rendering.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    It works fine on reddit because reddit isn't trying to support 3 different markup schemes at the same time. Seriously guys, JUST PICK ONE.



  • Actually I just tried it on reddit and it doesn't escape the asterisks properly.



  • TRWTF is that it *doesn't* chop off the rest of the line but rather only some random amount of characters.
