20:09:44 <Cary> Hi guys, I was wondering if it's possible to have large preview images in markdown? In rst I believe the metadata field is called ".. figure". In the demo post you can click on the image of Nikola Tesla corner and it will expand and also show a caption. But I was unable to find anything of the sort with Markdown in the docs.
20:11:49 <Cary> I have tried to make it a featured post, add a ".. thumbnail", add a ".. imagepreview", but those did not do anything. I have also tried to do "![image](path/to/image)", which was successful in showing a picture, but only as a plain picture and without the ability to expand/show caption upon clicking.
