There was one problem with it though. No way to really integrate it with WordPress. I mean, normally there is some sort of documentation and usually a hook or two via plugin to inject the needed code into your page(s) as they’re built.
On a whim, though, I tried just including the JS files (I uploaded the entire “WMD” directory to be safe) and let it fly. Not only did it give the just comment forms a nice toolbar, but it didn’t do what I was afraid it was going to do, that is give every text field a toolbar.
Now, after including one line in my comments.php file, I am able to have sweet sweet Markdown in my comments, which are later translated to HTML via the Markdown plugin for wordpress so that comments look good.
