Is there any way to full copy materials To Discourse?


(xiasummer) #1

You see, sometimes I read a good article on the web and I want to copy part of that article( No need to be full article ) but common copy only get the content(without pictures, but no format or style of such content)

Is there a good way to copy and paste the material to Discourse?

The expected way is to paste the URL into the title field of the new topic composer.

Like so:

I do that, but sometimes the interesting bit doesn’t show in the onebox, so I append to the post a c-n-p fragment, wrapping that in [quote]:

Pay attention to this bit:
