Test of Markdown publishing

Right, so publishing/posting a note written in "Smart" format only worked partially. The rendering of it that is. Now I've installed the Markdown add-on, and that is what I am using right now to type this note. Let's see how till will look when published. Headline 2 Headline 3 Headline 4 Headline 5 Headline 6 Here comes a bullet list: First bullet Second bullet First sub-bullet to second bullet Second sub-bullet to second bullet Third bullet Can I make checklists? ~~Let's try~~: [...

Subscribed to Standard Notes

After my initial testing and exploration of the free tier of Standard Notes, combined with not being sure (or informed, despite direct questions) on how it all will work for existing Proton customers, I decided to take the plunge and sign up for a subscription to Standard Notes. There is a 90-day money back guarantee after all, and as I signed up for a 5-year subscription that made it feel somewhat more safe that I still can back-track if this turns out to be a bad move. Having paid for Profess...

There. Now I have gotten the hang of editing the CSS file for this site too. Makes it all much nicer to look at when reading, don't you think? I really quite like the possibility of speed and efficiency when publishing here, especially as the drafts can live in my Standard Notes app until I figure it is time to publish them, if at all.

As a follow-up to my last post which ended in "now it is time to give it some time" I can now happily announce that this journal lives on a custom (sub-) domain to my old main domain. It wasn't all that easy though, and it took several attempts where I was in conversation with the very helpful Effie from the support team. At first it blankly refused, despite me being certain I had done the A-record in my DNS settings completely correct (managing domains and servers has been a part of my job fo...

As I got this service to work alright I figured I should connect a custom subdomain to it as well. As I have a bunch of domains for various things I had to put some thought in to it, but settled for, as at least in theory is my current "main" blog. On the main domain I am running a CMS of sorts - basically it is a PHP enabled templating system that can read markdown files. The beauty of it has been that I can update it from whateve...

I noticed that Standard Notes now has a publishing service called I wonder if I can publish to it...? Also I wonder what URL it would end up on if I indeed can publish on it. There is only one way to find out eh? :) One interesting functionality I noticed is that even though the format is listed as "Plain text" it seems like Markdown is being interpreted on the hosting service, is that correct? Testing some more: Is this a bullet? And if so, is this also one? It did handle URL'...
