# A rude assembly

First, I have made my root directory be /blog. That is, I have the line root: /blog in _config.yml. This is relevant to what follows. Now you could link to your own posts just by linking the whole URL starting http://… and so on. But I prefer to make the links shorter. So to link to this post I would write the following:
Note that the link starts with /blog (since that’s the root). I had some problem with a few links not liking having a trailing slash, but I can’t replicate the problem now.
I’ve also had some trouble writing this post. I don’t know how to get syntax highlighting for markdown. I tried lang:markdown in the codeblock but that didn’t seem to work.
