How do I edit a suggested reference?

Suggested references help you to keep track of all those links that you’d like to link from your own posts or might inspire you. When you suggest a reference, Nelio Content will try to automatically load all its information, including its title or author. Unfortunately, Nelio’s not always able to pull all that information, and so some fields might be empty.

If you detect some empty or invalid fields on your references, you can easily edit the reference. Just hover over the reference with your mouse to reveal the list of available actions:

If you move the mouse over a suggested reference, the available actions you can perform will appear at the top-right corner.

Click on the Pen icon and the following modal dialog will pop up:

Dialog for Editing Suggested References
Dialog for editing Suggested References in Nelio Content. Change the title or update the author’s information.

As you can see, the information Nelio retrieves from your references is:

  • The title of the suggested reference. This is usually the content of <title>.
  • Author Information includes the author’s name and two contact information fields: his e-mail address and his Twitter username. This information is aimed at helping you to get in touch with your “referenced” authors, so that you can let hem know you’re extending/complementing/commenting on their own posts.

Suggested references are usually links to third-party blogs. However, it’s possible to suggest a reference from your own blog. Please remember these latter references cannot be edited using the aforementioned dialog.
