Seeking advice on link management

Hello everyone,

I’m seeking advice on how to manage links between notes in obsidian. Specifically, I’d like to create links between special notes without them appearing in the graph view. Does anyone know if there’s a way to achieve this, either natively in Obsidian or through a plugin?

If anyone has suggestions, tips, or knows of a plugin that offers the functionality, I’d greatly appreciate your help.

Thank you in advance for your responses!

Two ideas comes to mind to help you get started:

  1. Tag the files you don’t want included, and use group view filtering to remove them from the graph view

  2. Have textual references in the properties, and use a Dataview script to turn them into links. These links won’t show in the graph view, and not be considered links by Obsidian

Those are great ideas, thank you! I’ll try it.

Given a proper page name in the properties this could be written as `= link(this.pageName, "alias")`.
