I am using WP-Markdown plugin for writing posts. In one post I wanted to add a link to another post, but since I am using Markdown editor I had to add the URL (permalink using month and name) of the post manually. This might cause troubles when the date or name of the post changes.

I was thinking about writing something like [1]:[post#51] and it will result in permalink to post with id 51.

Does the plugin support this or should I dig inside and write a code for this?

Have you tried that? Does it work? What do the WP-Markdown docs say? You are expected to have researched the problem and made an attempt at solving it before posting a question. – s_ha_dum Apr 14 '13 at 21:41
I asked the creator of WP-Markdown plugin and he confirmed that there's no support for what I would like to achieve. – Karel Frajtak Apr 17 '13 at 11:26
