Continuing the discussion from Markdown-it is very powerful with its pulgin, how to achieve these on discourse:
I see per that older topic that markdown-it features outside of commonmark “will not be included”, but there’s no way to add them via the separate markdown-it plugins?
They really would be useful. It’s almost tragic (especially for the goal of commonmark adoption) that commonmark doesn’t include any support for footnotes (I know that Discourse “more details” is a workaround, but it’s not the same).
Am I understanding right that the way markdown-it is incorporated into Discourse, the plugins would have to be added at some higher level and so aren’t available to people just running an instance of Discourse?
