    Description

      Description

      In order to maintain the chosen Markdown format in the Forum activity when replying to a post or creating a new post, I would like

      as a user

      to have the selected Markdown format fixed in the Forum activity.

      Current status

      When Markdown format is selected in the Forum activity, this setting is not used when replying to a post or when adding a new discussion topic. Instead, the format switches back to the default Moodle auto-format or HTML format.

       

      Note: This behavior also occurs with the Moodleoverflow plugin. See also: https://github.com/learnweb/moodle-mod_moodleoverflow/issues/94
