I have a series dev.to/nantipatsoften/series/11380

How to write markdown to make a widget?

Hey Nantipat,
You don't have to write any Markdown in order to get the widget. It's by creating a series under the "Post options" shown in the screenshot above and publishing at least 2 posts under those series.

I've opened the posts from the link you're sharing and can see the widget in both of them. Hope that helps :)

look like I'm confused.
when I write the new post and refer to series (all post in series ) like this picture

so, how to make the same thing in this picture in a post? (it call a widget right?)

I tried

{% linkdev.to/nantipatsoften/series/11380 %}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

but not work
T_T

As far as I know, Dev.to automatically generates the widget. The only thing you need to do is create a series and publish posts under it.

Looking this post of yours dev.to/nantipatsoften/11-truthy-an... I can see the widget in the post.

Or are you trying to add the widget to the series page here dev.to/nantipatsoften/series/11380? In that case I'm not sure you can add a widget.

I understood, it automatically generates the widget in a post.
