Testing the latest build of [Micro.blog’s Mac app beta](http://help.micro.blog/2017/mac-version/), which is now compatible with macOS Sierra, thanks to [Manton](http://manton.org) for listening to the community.

@cdevroe annnnnnd my blog doesn't support Markdown. :) Ooops. @manton - What plugin should I install so that I can post from the Mac app?

@cdevroe There’s a couple in the WP directory but I just use the JetPack support and turn most other things off.

@colinwalker Am I the only blogger not using Markdown on WordPress? I just use the Visual Editor and see little need.

@cdevroe 😆 If you’re using WP itself to post then there probably isn’t much need (except posting from m.b now of course.) It’s purely down to preference and toolset.

@cdevroe I found enabling Markdown in Wordpress led to better results when publishing from external editors such as Ulysses. I also use Jetpack for this.

@canion That's what I'm hearing from others as well. That makes sense.

@cdevroe Are you using WordPress? I like the Jetpack plugin. It has Markdown as an option.

@manton there’s also JP Markdown if you don’t want the extra Jetpack stuff.
