Show other authors, markdown editing and export, text alignment and more great new plugins..

Show Other Authors Caret Location

Like how Google Docs shows where other authors are on the document? Well Etherpad also has that functionality and it’s only a few clicks away!

Grab ep_cursortrace from your /admin/plugins page.

Markdown editing and export in Etherpad

Who doesn’t love Markdown? With ep_markdown you can use rich editing buttons and see rich edits and markdown together or toggle between markdown/up visibility. It’s really nice and a useful addition to Etherpad.

Grab ep_markdown from your /admin/plugins page.

Text Alignment

Left, Center, Right and Justify Text in your pad. Great when paired up with ep_page_view for a richer editing experience.

Grab ep_align from your /admin/plugins page.

Stop Writing

Stop Writing is a plugin for teachers and other pad owners to stop collaborators for writing, possibly to partake in a discussion or other announcement.

Grab ep_stop_writing from your /admin/plugins page.

Pad Stats

Pad Stats is a commercial plugin but still really cool.
Get stats such as Character Count, Word Count, Revision Count, Saved Revision count and various Author Statistics.

  1. BUG REPORT (no need to publish this comment, just act on it! :-)

    Can you please fix your blog theme so that it displays the date of the post also in each post’s page? Currently dates are only published in the archive pages, but if one lands on a post page there’s no way to see when the post was published.
