I think I am completely misunderstanding something about the Wordpress Drafts Action.
I’m using a self hosted blog with the latest Wordpress, which right now is 5.3.2 with no plugins. Or rather the only plugin seems to be something to do with Google Fonts, ask my husband, and that doesn’t seem like it would change anything.
What I’m trying to do is write my blog posts in Markdown in Drafts, and then use the Wordpress action to post it. As a test, I’m using the wordpress posting action, the one that uses the Wordpress step, not the script and I pretty much haven’t changed it.
The first test was fine. A title and some text. The problem is that this doesn’t let me format anything. So I try Markdown. Obviously this doesn’t work, Wordpress doesn’t understand Markdown out of the box. So I convert it to html with the %% tags, and try that.
This completely doesn’t work. I’m not even sure exactly what Wordpress is doing to it, but most of it gets deleted when I view the post on my site, which is odd.
If I paste the generated html into Wordpress itself, it’s fine, but not if I send it.
I can use the Post to Wordpress action in Shortcuts to do it: Convert the markdown to richtext then run the action, but I can’t figure out what I need to do in Drafts to use the native support. Can anyone tell me what my tired brain is missing?
