Some blog posts have borked markdown. This is what I mean: enter image description here
Perhaps someone can update them or change the markdown renderer to support this: _ hello_ instead of needing this: _hello_?


_ hello_ = _ hello_

_hello_ = hello

  • It doesn't look like a bug to me. It just looks like incorrect usage of markdown syntax. The authors of such posts needed, perhaps, to have more closely checked the preview. I proof-read my posts, although we are all bound to miss something sometimes. If this is not a bug, does that make it a feature-request if you want it to behave differently? – David Jul 12 '15 at 2:35

I do not believe this is a bug. I think it is just improper use of markdown syntax. I also do not believe it would be worth the effort of implementing a change to accommodate it. Finally, I might update (edit) such a piece of text, but only if I was already editing it for some other reason... not just to fix some markdown. (Official blog posts, however, are probably worth some extra attention, as you suggest.)

    He's not referring to a standard post, he's referring to posts on the official blog. I agree that it's probably the author's fault, but it's worth fixing even minor errors like this in official blog posts. – Jeremy Banks Jul 12 '15 at 18:16
  • @JeremyBanks Yes, that makes sense. – David Jul 13 '15 at 1:48
