Including text in the date format for the Daily Note Plugin Example

First-time poster to the forum. I am very excited about Obsidian and joining the community.

I have been working on setting up a Daily Note using the plugin. I had trouble getting the note to generate. Discovered that by escaping text and avoiding characters not permitted in filenames/note titles, I was able to generate the following using this format as an example:

YYYYMMDDHHmm \D\a\i\l\y \N\o\t\e\s - MMMM Do, YYYY hh-mm a

Hopefully, this will be helpful to others. Still experimenting, but I am looking forward to being a long term user. My apologies if this was covered elsewhere. I searched the forum but didn’t find a reference to this kind of activity.

[Square brackets also work] dd, in case that helps.

That would render to:
Square brackets also work 12
