Hugi's test thread

I realize that I should probably make a post about Plato Project - will do that soon!

I mean quoting here from another Discourse deployment (e.g. edgeryders).

I was under the impression that I’ll get a nice box with a preview of e.g. edgeryders and what I quoted, but didn’t happen :frowning:

Ah, so to get the box you just post the link!

So this:

Becomes this:

So as you see, you can’t actually quote a specific part from the post when quoting from other deployments - it just becomes a preview of the first part of that post.

But you can always complement that with adding the quote yourself, like this:

Here, I just referenced Matthias manually, by using the box quote syntax:

[quote="@matthias on"]

So when you put those together it’s pretty nice.


Thanks @hugi , that makes sense! I see that it works with any website too, but of course you have to play a bit to reproduce the quote as you want it (when you write the post). I.e. it doesn’t come for free, like when you copy it from another Discourse site.

Very cool overall! I hope your answer helps more people like me who try to bend their heads around it :smiley:


Great meeting you all during the lab!

Now @pernillan has done a summary of your links and insights and @Pierre is writing a blog about the lab (published soon).

I would love to hear your thoughts on what we should do next! What more labs would you like to see 2021? I’ve started a conversation here. @myms commented right away about a potential collab surrounding security, and also thoughts on “slow dialogue regarding ideology” (love it!) Any of you also interested in those topics or others in the list? Elaborate, build upon ideas and comment here: What labs would you like to see 2021?

Hey everyone, here is the blog post summing up the presentations of the amazing speakers that shared their experience during the lab!

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have feedback or want to follow up on something!


Yay! As a reminder of one of the cool functions in Discourse, I’m posting the blog link on it’s own line here below too, so we get a beautiful preview of it :wink:

Btw, we’re also considering creating a shorter version of the lab in Swedish in the evening so that more people can join. Do you think you have friends or colleagues that would like that? Please comment!
