In my earlier post, I wanted to write about a Liquid script for embedding a YouTube in a Jekyll blog, but the Liquid tag kept triggering the script.
I tried the following without success:
- Using Markdown and HTML syntax for code.
- Using an escape character (
\) in several places.
Yesterday, I found the answer in a Stack Overflow post, How to escape liquid template tags?. This post discusses several solutions. The one that works for me is using the
raw tag. Apparently, there was once a plugin that allowed the use of the
raw tag, but as fregante states, “it works out of the box and now it’s in the docs.”
As I do with all useful code scripts, I created a TextExpander snippet that allows me to insert the
raw tag with a keyboard shortcut.
