Automatically display all incoming page links at the bottom of note

What I’m trying to do

On many sites, like Andy Matuschak’s there is a list of incoming links that link to a page. I don’t want to see potential pages, only actual pages that point directly to the current page. Is this the dataview plugin? If so, how do I set that up?

Like here, is this done manually, or can it be done automatically. Is this only for Obsidian “publish”?

You can toggle backlinks in document for each pane.

A global toggle for this is available since 0.13.9 (insider build, not yet public).

thanks. I see that now, but I want these in my page automatically like in the screenshot. Currently I have to manually do this, which is too tedious for every page.

The global option will be available once we make the next public release.

At this stage, you can use the CodeMirror Options plug-in and open the show backlinks in editor option to achieve this effect.

I use this query at the foot of files (adding it from a template, of course):

```dataview
LIST 
FROM ([[#]]) OR outgoing([[#]])
WHERE file.name != this.file.name
SORT file.name ASC
```

You might be able to adapt it for your needs.

I copy-pated this to the bottom of my note, but it just repeats the same links in the body of the note.

cool plugin. I much prefer WYSIWYG editing!
