Use the Workflow Extension to process the workflow. Tap this link and save the workflow. First time you run it you'll be asked to confirm since it's one you imported. There are two workflows you will use

Link Post (this one first) Copy Link Post (this one second)

  1. In Safari on your iphone/ipad highlight the text you want to be the quote (you don't have to copy)
  2. Tap the Share Button which is in the bottom-middle. Square with an Up arrow coming out of it.
  3. Tap on Run Workflow (let me know if you need help seeing this)
  4. Tap Linked Post
  5. the workflow will run and save a doctument in the Workflow folder of iCloud Drive.
  6. It will then call a second workflow which you will manually run a few times. Each line is a different section of the post you will copy.

    1. Title
    2. URL.
    3. Author and site.
    4. TEXT FIELD - SKIP THIS
    5. Quote you highlighted
  7. Add your comments at the bottom

  8. Add -Brent (name of person who linked it.) I'm not sure on this one if we want to do it or not, but I thought it might be good to know who wrote the comments.

  1. New post
  2. Tap the + in the upper right
  3. Tap on Markdown
  4. Tap and Hold on the Write Here box and drag to the trash can at the bottom (won't work if the keyboard is up).
  5. Put the title of the article as the Post Title
  6. Paste the line with the Author for *website and the quote from the article in the Write Markdown Here block. It has to have the > before it so it renders as a quote.
  7. Leave a blank line then write any comments you may want to include
  8. Tap the Gear in the upper right
  9. Toggle off comments
  10. Ignore the URL section. It will pull from the post title and fill it in.
  11. In Source URL erase the http:// and paste in the URL of the article we are linking.
  12. Tap Return (vital or it throws off the source link/post title)
  13. Toggle on the External Link
  14. Tap the X in the upper right.
  15. Tap Done in the upper left
  16. Tap Save and Publish
  17. Tap view in the upper right to verify it looks correct.

You have to add the Markdown block at the top and delete the other because the other is really just for regular text and doesn't provide a good way to have the quote section (at least not in the app.)

We can make it so it starts as Markdown BUT that's a site wide change and would add would make all new posts in any of the blog pages (aka the podcast pages) as markdown. Fine with me, as I do all my writing in markdown (including this post) but I doubt anyone else has even heard of it. I just manually change it for all my posts.
