Hi, The editor of the Bludit site I look after has been using SimpleMDE, however, as part of the upgrade to Bludit 3.1.0, it would be nice to move them over to a WISIWIG editor, i.e. TinyMCE

Is there an easy way to convert the text so that it looks like it would do had they done it in TinyMCE in the first place?

Below is a sample of how it looks after switching from SimpleMDE to TinyMCE

I know it displays OK for the end users, but any change to the existing pages would need to be re-created again, which I don't wish the editor to need to do.
Many thanks in advance,
David

There are a lot of possibilities (search for "convert markdown to html").

Here are some suggestions:

Also you can use for example the editor Atom with the package markdown-to-html:

Yes you need to use some tool to convert from Markdown to HTML.

Anyway, you can always disable TinyMCE from the plugins and enable SimpleMDE.
