Does anyone know what is the markdown shortcut for footnote?
If using markdown card and i type this ^[my footnote] in the markdown card, it will be generated as a footnote. but that only available from markdown card.
How about markdown shortcut from the koenig editor? I know that we can still use markdown as shortcut directly from koenig. so how about this?
Are you not comfortable with writing all your content inside a markdown card? Because that’s a perfectly fine way to write your articles, the HTML that’s produced is just as good as the markup produced by the main Ghost editor. Some people prefer writing in markdown, which is what the markdown card is for
if there is no support for footnote as shortcut in ghost editor, hoping for a support soon.
creating manually or using markdown card is not that great. Unless the whole typing experience reverted to markdown once again. Which will force editor to learn that and make used to it.
With this creating footnotes is as straightforward as creating a regular link . I’ve also written the code in such a way that you can choose what text to be in the link, so instead it could be “more info” or “details”. Hope you find this useful
Instead of fn , why not <sup> that contains <a> ?
I believe that most of the time <sup> that contains <a> is used to refer something at footnote.
What you’ve shown in the codepen, doesn’t it want to be PR to the ghost editor? So everyone else can make use of it in case they need it. I read it in the forum and found that some people also interesting in footnote that they already being using it since Ghost 1.0 until they drop the support. I mean, before this Ghost was fully markdown until Koenig arrived and kill some minor but useful stuff. But of course, Koenig is here for a reason: not everyone are markdown expert.
I hope this shortcut can be added to Ghost Editor. cc: @DavidDarnes
If you check the code I wrote you’ll see that it automatically generates the <sup> elements, as well as all the elements that are created when adding footnotes.
The reason for creating this is to suit your specific needs. From what I’ve seen in the forum there hasn’t been a demand for this addition. Meaning that either people are content with the footnote support within the Markdown card, or that people aren’t using footnotes very often.
You are of course welcome to contribute the addition yourself , more details can be found here:
There are actually quite a few. Also a voting there
Well, looks like not that much, but it actually consider as a important, if not crucial, part of blogging. I’ve seen few blog wanna use reference but with bad “source” or “reference” implementation. Maybe because their current cms doesn’t support that. Ghost can fit that market. Usually blog that related to politics and current issue ; that of course require reference ; We both know why. Tech blog also use that, some if not all.
I don’t think that Ghost core developer will approved this because you said it is not demanding and it is claimed here
We generally don’t merge new features and larger changes without prior discussion with the core product team for tech/design specification.
I read that as small chance of approval as it is also not being approved in the prev forum post (above ) and here.
mentioned because no reply indicator, didn’t know why . @DavidDarnes
instead of using html card like you suggest to manually link up the reference. why not creating a footnote card? so it won’t be “html” thing. still linking manually but easier and standardised compare to writing html on post which could break.
i wonder why the reply sometimes showing and sometimes doesn’t. so i tag mr @Kevin instead
