I have been using Ghost since version 0.x, being really happy with the star feature of the lovely markdown editor. Never had any bad experience so far, but that was until upgraded to version 2.x where the editor was replaced with Koenig.
At first I thought this would be no problem, I wanted to continue writing in markdown, so inserting a markdown block was good enough.
However, as I was finishing my article, I had some kind of weird screen focus problem in the browser and after hitting backspace on my keyboard I ended up deleting the markdown block were my entire article was, losing all my work; my intent was to just delete a word… CTRL+Z didn’t help recovering my lost post.
I never had this kind of unpleasant experience with any other blog platform before. I loved Ghost over Wordpress for the simplicity and the power of the markdown editor that now seem lost.
I really would like to suggest two features:
- Implement a way in Koenig to prevent accidental block deletions such as the one I experienced. A confirmation would be nice…
- Bring back the full markdown editor and allow us to choose between the two of them. I want to focus on my content and markdown was perfect for that.
