MT Upgrade == No Markdown

I upgraded my Movable Type installation from version 3.2 to version 3.31 yesterday. For some reasons, the upgrade killed Markdown and Smartypants. I'm anal about typography so that was unacceptable. So I downgraded back to version 3.2 and I got my curly quotes/comma and dashing dashes back. Yay! Happiness! :)

    Smar­ty­pants didn’t work, either. I decid­ed to just down­grade back to 3.2 and now every­thing is work­ing beau­ti­ful­ly again. :)

    Have you tried Smar­ty­pants? I find it to be pret­ty invalu­able.

    I’ve heard noth­ing but bad things about expe­ri­ences upgrad­ing, so I’m won­der­ing what the point is.
    Are there not­i­ca­ble changes in any way (apart from things break­ing)?

    That’s strange — Mark­down and Smar­ty Pants work fine on my copy of MT 3.31. Are you using the lat­est ver­sions of them?

    I do have the lat­est ver­sions. Mark­down and Smar­ty­Pants just didn’t work on the pre-upgrade entries, not even after a rebuild.

    Well, the only solu­tion was to down­grade so I did and it seems to be work­ing. :)

    (LOL! Love the “fab­u­lous” fea­ture)
    Good! I’m glad it’s work­ing for you now!
