(Poster’s note: Posted in/under the ‘General’ because the ‘Questions & Answers’ category is for posts discussing ‘installing, configuring, and running GitLab,’ presumably in reference to a local instance.)
I’m trying to use a reference-stye link inside a bulleted list that’s part of a Markdown file that’s hosted in a repository at GitLab.com, but I can’t get said link to render; I just get whitespace. I’ve tried a few possible syntax variations — namely ‘
[reference-text]: <link-text> "title-attribute-text",’ ‘
[reference-text]: link-text "title-attribute-text",’ and ‘
[reference-text]: link-text’ without any text for the active Markdown parser to process into what would be the resulting raw HTML link’s ‘
title’ attribute — to try and get it to work, but with no success.
Am I possibly hitting a bug in GitLab? Should I file an issue? Alternatively, am I doing something wrong, and, if so, what? I’m not 100& sure I have the syntax right here. I also saw GitLab.org/GitLab#212770, but that’s just with respect to GitLab’s documentation style guide, which said issue links to.
