Paragraphs inside blockquotes (Koenig editor)


#1

We frequently use multi-paragraph quotes in posts, and there seems to be two problems with blockquotes in the Koenig editor: (Maybe we’re just doing something wrong?)

  1. Koenig doesn’t seem to be able to handle paragraphs in blockquotes natively.
  2. If you use Markdown to create a multi-paragraph blockquote, Koenig doesn’t preview it properly.

Markdown example

Markdown code

> ## The Storyline
> 
> Freja and the False Prophecy is the tale of one shield maidens journey. A tale of redemption, betrayal, overcoming adversity and self discovery.
> 
> Returning from a raid, Freja arrives at her home shore, her ship cast upon the rocks, to discover that all is not as it seems. A great malady has gripped the land. With the tragedy of lost comrades and a sunken bounty she sets off to uncover a tale of greed, corruption and sombre tragedy.

Native Koenig blockquote issue

When you try to create a multi-paragraph blockquote in Koenig, it generates the following HTML when published. This happens when you paste in a block of text, select it, and make it a quote, or if you type it in line-by-line.

<blockquote><h2>The Storyline</h2></blockquote>
<blockquote>Freja and the False Prophecy is the tale of one shield maidens journey. A tale of redemption, betrayal, overcoming adversity and self discovery.</blockquote>

@SIGSTART using a Markdown or HTML card is the native way to do this. What you call the “native blockquote” tool is designed for single-paragraph quotes, not to contain arbitrary markup such as headings or multiple paragraphs.

Thank you very much for the feedback.

Koenig isn’t rendering the Markdown preview correctly either, though.

Should I log it as a bug somewhere?
