Subject [allura:tickets] #6822 Option to bypass or escape markdown
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2013 15:02:58 GMT
If it's a "paste code snippet" button that escapes the block of text, I think that'd work out
okay.  Better than escaping the whole thing with `~~~~` fences which would show up in a few
places (like plain text notifications).  And then we can add more buttons to add more formatting
help too, besides just code blocks.

Other different types of solutions might be: requiring preview before post, so issues are
noticed.  Or having a 'view original text' button so viewers can see the original text as
it was entered (this would be useful too for other cases of viewing "source markdown").

All textareas take markdown input, but if you don't realize that and just type or paste something
(e.g. code sample, log file) then certain chars may convert into markdown syntax and not render
as actually intended.

A checkbox near preview & formatting help buttons could be added.  (Maybe expand to a
full toolbar to help with syntax some day).  Changing the data storage for every artifact
and the render calls for every artifact is a lot of work and makes the whole system a bit
more complex.  If we can use markdown syntax to escape the whole content of the entry, that
could work out pretty well I think.
