Monit is a helpful program that automatically monitors and manages server programs to ensure that they not only stay online consistently, but that the file size, checksum, or permissions are always correct. This tutorial covers monit installation and provides an example of how to configure it for some common programs.

An update to the community site was pushed live yesterday which does include some modifications to the markdown parsing adding a few new features for use mostly in tutorial content. Can you provide the link to the page where you are seeing the issues shown in your screenshots as it appears that this may indicate an issue with the changes that will require a fix.
