[resolved] Post format quote fields (5 posts)

    Currently, it looks like we can put in quote and link to author/source.
    "some quote" - LINK TO AUTHOR/SOURCE

    Just wondering if there are any plans to add a field to distinguish between author and source? So that it could possibly look like
    "some quote" - LINK TO SOURCE by AUTHOR

    Thanks for everyone who is working so diligently. Excited for the new version to come out!

  2. The fields avialable are:

    Title:
    Quote
    Quote source
    Link url

    So you would put the author in 'quote source' and format as you wanted. Is that not what you're asking?

    I would say that this was meant to be as simple and easy-to-use as possible. There's not going to be anything to distinguish between an "author" or "source" -- This would all just be the "Quote Source" (i.e. whatever text string you want to display below the quote)

    Thanks for the responses!

    I guess I was asking because the link URL basically attaches to the source. Just wanted to ask if there were plans to separate those.

    For example, if you wanted to quote from a specific book, it would be
    "some quote" - NAME OF BOOK/ARTICLE by author
    where the name of book/article was linked.

    Sorry if I'm unclear, but an example of a format I'm talking about looks like this: http://synapticism.com/nothing-is-original/

    It's ok, maybe I was just confusing myself with the semantics.

    thanks guys!
