Readwise YAML formating


I recently started using the Readwise official community plugin.

I am trying to configure the YAML front matter settings on Readwise Obsidian Export section.

On the YAML section, it says don’t include triple dashes. I have done my settings as per the image below.

However, when I go into Obsidian, it says “Invalid YAML”. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

Is it wrong with the book data or just as it is there?

I had a book title that was title: subtitle and apparently the : jacked it all up.


Author needs to be on a new line, or if you’re trying to include it in the title then it all needs to go inside quote marks if I remember the syntax correctly.
