Having an invisible link for quotes

Hi everybody! I was looking for a feature like the one that was recently introduced in Roam, namely the improved syntax for quotes where [[>]] works exactly like > when put at the beginning of a line. While it doesn’t work like that in Obsidian, I came up with the following syntax that results both in the quote CSS and the quotes page with backlinks:


for which, in the preview mode, the link will render invisible because there’s nothing after the vertical bar. Hope it may be useful for someone!

Also I’d love to know if there are any drawback to this approach.

UPD The name of the quotes page may be anything you want it to be.


What is the advantage/function of [[>]] rather than > ?


For [[>]], Roam creates a separate page with all the backlinks to it.
