Obsidian Publish not showing YAML tags?

Do YAML properties like Tags not carry over to Obsidian publish? It only shows the page title in the graph view.

I can’t find anything in the obsidian help that says this wouldn’t work; so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.


Same here.
I can confirm - no YAML markup is shown
I use backlinks in there so it makes no sense to use publisher at all

Seems that it’s somehow hard-wired. I don’t know much about css, but inspecting the site code I can find the following:

<pre class="frontmatter language-yaml" style="display: none;" tabindex="0">

If you disable the display:none; using the browser tool, you get the frontmatter, in plain-text format (which is not ideal as tags are not formatted like they would have if they were in the body of the file). But I wasn’t able to figure out how to override this using the publish.css file.

I found this feature request.
