CommonMark for WordPress

Markdown provides an efficient way to create formatted content for the web in plain text. Unlike a WYSIWYG editor, you use special characters to indicate which words and phrases should look different. Markdown syntax was designed to be readable and unobtrusive, so the content in Markdown files can be read even if it isn’t rendered.

Defer Disqus Plugin Loading

The Disqus for WordPress plugin lets site owners easily add Disqus to their sites, replacing the default WordPress comment system. On each page view, Disqus loads multiple javascript files. There is no need to load all of those resources on every page. Ideally, Disqus should only load when it’s required.
