Include / show note links in yaml frontmatter (v0.8.5)
I was using note links in the yaml part to make references to other notes but they doesn’t work anymore in obs 0.8.5.
I don’t see the links to my other notes that were in the front matter in the graph view nor in the backlinks.
Another result of this is that my old links that were in the front matter don’t update when I rename them.
A possible solution would be to have an options page for yaml front matter where a toggleable option to enable note links is present.
When this option is enabled:
- links syntax is highlighted in edit mode
- links are displayed as such in preview mode
- links are detected in related features like graph view and backlinks
Here is an example of a front-matter of mine:
--- id: 20200822115642 title: [[My Super Note]] date: [[2020-08-22]] language: 🇺🇸 brain: - [[2020-08-22 - Brain Dump#13 37]] references: - Obsidian: A knowledge base that works on local Markdown files. (n.d.). Retrieved June 24, 2020, from https://obsidian.md/ - [[Another source note]] --- # My Super Note Content ...
For now, if you have the same problem as me you can start the yaml front matter part with 4 ‘-’ like so:
---- id: 20200822115642 title: [[My Super Note]] <-- working --- # My Super Note
