Messing with Shortcuts and Posting to Weblog

This is a test post from Drafts and Shortcuts. In theory all of this text here will become the body of the post. This shortcut I’m testing is a modification of one I create which generates a draft post by prefilling the needed front matter, asks for a name for the file and then saves the file to Working Copy. I had been using Working Copy and/or Textastic to write the body of the post and then commit and push the post using Working Copy. This new shortcut should allow writing the body in any app by using the share sheet (or Drafts ability to run a shortcut) which will use the text as Shortcut Input and pasted below the front matter and markdown title in the Shortcut Text Field. If it works as intended, I’ll share screenshots and the shortcuts in another post.
