Quotes containing code block must start with newline


#1

When including a quote with a code block, it will not render correctly unless the quote starts with an extra newline character. For example, the following will display correctly:

[quote="abarker"]
Sample quote 1, without any code.
[/quote]

However, insert a code block into the quote, and things will become problemeatic.

[quote="abarker"]
Sample quote 2, with a small code block.
```
n = 2;
```
This will not work
[/quote]

Then again, if you add an extra line break to the beginning of the quote, it starts working again:

[quote="abarker"]

Sample quote 3, with a small code block.
```
n = 2;
```
This will work
[/quote]

If the quote only consists of code, I’ve found adding an extra line has no effect to fix formatting. But inserting two backticks before the code block, and none after it, works.

A single backtick will fix the #, but shows up in the code.

This one was a pain to debug. I’ve included a workaround, but this is a core markdown parser bug and it should be revisited.
