A peak behind the curtain

Whilst I have the login credentials in 1password for both my own benefit and anyone looking to set-up a WordPress site I thought it useful to capture how I’m running this site.

Posting

Both routes are actually pretty simple, obvious in fact.

On the desktop I’m running macOS, so naturally I’m using MarsEdit for posting most content, with the very occasional tweak on WordPress.

On iOS I’ve defaulted to the WordPress App.

Where possible I’m writing in Markdown rather than rich-text, and trying to avoid HTML wherever possible.

Markdown

For Markdown I’m using the functionally named Markdown Editor from SEO Themes. By default this only creates markdown in posts, so as per their guidelines I’ve included the code following code in the theme’s functions.php file accessed through the Theme Editor.

add_post_type_support( 'page', 'wpcom-markdown' );

This extra step means I can also post pages (such as this) in Markdown.
