Interal Links Don't Work

How can it be that I get errors for every one of these?

Same error for all of them: File name cannot contain any of the following characters: * " \ / < > : | ?

And what is your file name that it complains about? And you’re aware that you’re using the templater variant which only is executed in viewing mode(s)?

2024-02-08-Th and 2024-02-10-Sa, respectively as this is on yesterday’s daily note.

And yes, when I switch to viewing mode it displays as I would expect but clicking on it shows the error. However, maybe Templater is the issue some how still?


For the moment().add() and moment().subtract() :

E.g.: the Tomorrow link:

[[<%+ moment(tp.file.title, "YYYY-MM-DD-dd").add(1, 'dd').format("YYYY-MM-DD-dd") %>|Tomorrow]]

… You have a d too much in the .add() :blush: :

It should be :

[[<%+ moment(tp.file.title, "YYYY-MM-DD-dd").add(1, 'd').format("YYYY-MM-DD-dd") %>|Tomorrow]]


[[<%+ moment(tp.file.title, "YYYY-MM-DD-dd").add(1, 'days').format("YYYY-MM-DD-dd") %>|Tomorrow]]

Same goes for the Yesterday link and the .subtract().

I also don’t think you need the fileDate = :thinking: .

Typos aside, nothing really strikes me as something that would lead the “Forbidden character in the file’s title” error you get though :thinking: .

On the other hand, you probably shouldn’t use Templater’s Dynamic Commands :innocent: :

From the Dynamic Commands - Templater documentation page :blush: :

Note : Dynamic commands have known issues, and will likely not be maintained going forward (see this issue for more details). In most cases the Dataview plugin is the suggested alternative.

Thanks so much Pch. Your corrections helped out a lot. I realized too that I wasn’t activating the links in accordance with Templater.
