Meta Post - Common CSS Hacks

@chumido : I am not a CSS expert so cannot say where you went wrong. Did you try my code?

You can try removing the first css code or just hide # in editing mode

Anyone can help? This CSS cannot apply to the outline pane anymore.

Very good and practical modify! Visually helps me a lot! Like it very much thanks :slight_smile:

other than using "› ", I try to change it to "⊢ " so visually the files look like “branches” that under the folder.

Hi, do you know any snippet which will allow me to do this Custom css to change link color based on link type


No, sorry I don’t. In the Discord css-themes channel there is some amazing CSS expertise, you should ask there, I am sure you’ll have a solution in no time. I have seen this issue addressed before.

Okay. Thanks for replying.

Hi @Moonbase59 thanks for creating this CSS snippet. It’s been really useful. I noticed that in Preview mode, it changes subsequent lines to the same line and does not recognize additional line breaks. Is this a bug or a feature?

@curiosity if you look at the code you’ll see that <br> gets eliminated. If you uncomment that bit you should have your separate lines back.

Perfect, it recognizes single line breaks now. Although multiple line breaks (>2) aren’t recognized but it’s not a huge problem. Thanks @Klaas !

One of @nickmilo’s youtubes pointed me to tis thread - and for the life of me the snippet

.tag[href="#important"] {
color : red;

does not work for me … is there anything extra I need to do? (sadly not an expert coder).

BTW - while I am here - thankyou for the Cybertron theme Nick - adopted it when I first found your videos - tho needless to say couldn’t resist adding a few snippets!

If you are using Cybertron theme, it had an issue where it was preventing snippets from loading correctly. I sent Nick a pull request and he got it implemented, but you might need to reload the theme. (Just go to the theme browser and reselect the cybertron theme ) Let me know if you are still having issues with it after that and I can help you troubleshoot things.


Thankyou … let me go take a look.

@Lithou so - had been modifying parts of the theme - and so to make sure i hadn’t broken anything - killed that theme and freshly installed cybertron from the directory.

I have enabled all my snippets - and nothing.

this is the snippet code I have

.tag[href="#notes/rough"] {
color : red;

  • and there are LOTS of #notes/rough tags the system

but sadly nothing.

any ideas i would welcome. (I did try a non nested tag - but no dice.)

my thanks in anticipation


testing and noting that #important is coming through as different to how my own tag appears … is that an issue?

yeah its outdated this is my new css code for outliners

.graph-controls .tree-item,





    margin-left: .3em;

    border-left: 1px solid var(--text-faint);

    transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;

    padding: 0;


  .graph-controls .tree-item-inner::before{

    display: none;



    content: " • ";

    margin-right: 4px;


have a great day

I have some problems coloring hastags on hover. In preview mode, it already works, but in editor mode, the # has a different class (.cm-s-obsidian than the tag itself. The following works for hovering over the the tag name, but the # will not be colored on hover in editor mode:

  color: var(--text-hashtag-hover);

How can color the whole tag including # when hovering over either the tag name or #?

Anyone can help? This cannot work on the latest version anymore.
