first of all I don’t know anything about coding second of all I’m playing around with the bookmarks shortcode/page (thanks @sod it’s great) third of all is there a way to pull the date that a bookmark was saved and add it before the content/url?

@Annie Thanks for sharing! I'm considering moving all my bookmarks to micro.blog. This is a good nudge.

Related, I just found www.alexmolas.com/2023/07/1... through your bookmarks. Love that sentiment.

@chrisd isn't that a great reminder about blogging? love it.

I went thru the process yesterday of setting up bookmarks, adding the shortcode/page, and importing from pinboard. easy peasy. it's nice to have them here

@Annie You can pull the date in, you just need to customize what's in between the shortcode tag. I did something similar on my website. I tried pasting the code in this reply to you but it was unreadable. So, in the documentation you want this part and then inside the figcaption tag add this where you want the date to show.

{{ time.Format "Jan 2, 2006" .date_published}}

@heyloura oh thank you!! Just added and it worked! happy dance I tried a few versions of the .time thing yesterday but I think I was not putting them inside the figcaption tag... AHA.

@Annie absolutely. I’m planning on doing the same now, regarding pinboard bookmark importing. Thanks for the inspiration!
