09:05:25 <ajw> Hi
09:05:27 <ajw> In general, how do you translate an RST snippet from the handbook to markdown?
09:05:56 <ajw>  For instance, I want to embed a youtube video in a markdown document
09:06:04 <ajw> The instructions in the handbook are: ``{{% media url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nck6BZga7TQ" %}}
09:06:13 <ajw> What would be the markdown equivalent?
09:24:20 <ToApolytoXaos> have you tried pandoc?
09:24:44 <ToApolytoXaos> that's how I have converted my HTML files to .rst
09:26:18 <ToApolytoXaos> that's the command you should use: pandoc -f tex -t rst <file-name>.tex -o <file-name>.rst
09:26:32 <ToApolytoXaos> replace tex with HTML
09:26:55 <ToApolytoXaos> make it lowercase ajw 
09:28:17 <ajw> Thanks
09:28:41 <ToApolytoXaos> no worries mate
09:28:57 <ajw> But what I want is to use the rst extensions in markdown
09:29:27 <ajw> It seems it is not possible. 
09:29:43 <ajw> There are rst extensions, and there are markdown extensions.
09:30:15 <ajw> https://getnikola.com/handbook.html#markdown
09:30:39 <ajw> "Nikola comes with some Markdown Extensions built-in and enabled by default, namely a gist directive, a podcast directive, and ~~strikethrough~~ support."
09:32:51 <ajw> From that I understand that the extensions listed here:
09:32:52 <ajw> https://getnikola.com/handbook.html#restructuredtext-extensions
09:33:03 <ajw> are not available in markdown
09:33:17 <ajw> Can someone confirm that my interpretation is correct?
09:40:20 <ToApolytoXaos> as far as I know, .rst and .txt are the formats ReST recognizes
09:40:27 <ToApolytoXaos> now about markdown, I know .md
09:41:14 <ToApolytoXaos> and based on conf.py I can see .mdown, .markdown, and .wp
09:41:22 <ToApolytoXaos> now what .wp I have no idea

15:30:35 -GitHub[plugins]:#nikola- plugins/master 3470cbe Chris Warrick: Do not use binary mode with encoding
15:38:29 <ChrisWarrick> !tell ajw Some of the reST extensions are avaialble as shortcodes for other markup formats, and your example for media is meant for Markdown and other markup languages: {{% media url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nck6BZga7TQ" %}}
15:38:29 <KwBot> ChrisWarrick: acknowledged.
15:55:35 <charlesay> after i reinstalled nikola yesterday, it threw errors about a post whose author field looked like "Firstname Firstsurname, Secondname Secondsurname": https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8960530
15:57:24 <ChrisWarrick> charlesay: do you have a custom authorindex.tmpl?
16:03:56 <charlesay> ChrisWarrick: i don't think so
16:04:06 <ChrisWarrick> charlesay: what about your theme?
16:06:34 <charlesay> it's using bootstrap3'
16:07:23 <ChrisWarrick> I thought I fixed that one already
16:08:18 <ChrisWarrick> charlesay: rm /home/daro2/nikola_site/eiserne_ketten/cache/.mako.tmp/authorindex.tmpl.py and make real sure this is v7.8.2
16:14:57 <ChrisWarrick> charlesay: in fact, it isn’t, so upgrade to v7.8.2
16:16:58 <charlesay> thanks. how is v7.8.2 attaineable?
16:19:00 <ChrisWarrick> charlesay: the same way you installed v7.8.1.
16:19:08 <ChrisWarrick> charlesay: which, IIRC, is the AUR.
16:19:27 <charlesay> so getting the git package from there
16:19:37 <ChrisWarrick> no
16:19:43 <ChrisWarrick> v7.8.2 is a real stable release
16:34:45 <charlesay> ah, i see, looked at the wrong column just then
16:38:05 <ToApolytoXaos> great job ChrisWarrick 
16:38:20 <ChrisWarrick> you're welcome!
16:42:18 <charlesay> works again, thank you!
