Unnumbered lists and hyperlinks

Things I have tried

  • Searched the Obsidian help section
  • Googled on the problem

What I’m trying to do

I am trying to create a unnumbered lists with hyperlinks. But the links will not be parsed into obsidian links. The markdown ends up being shown.


Is this possible? Is there a way to make the editor parse both the list and the link or do I have to choose one of them?

Have a look here: Format your notes - Obsidian Help

You’ve just got the display text and link swapped (if I understand you correctly).

Perfect! Thank you!

FYI @kaywib , when you need to post Markdown, marking it as code will make it so we can see the plain version, which makes it easier to help.


…and if your want to get really fancy, you can use four backticks to enclose something that includes a codeblock.

@CawlinTeffid, that reminds me: does this forum have something like a cheat sheet? I’d be willing to contribute!

I looked though the Meta category but didn’t see anything related to tips and tricks for the forum itself (but may have missed it).

edit: Holroy has something similar here New FAQ posts but I was thinking of a how-to just for writing and formatting things in the forum.

This is just a standard Discourse forum. So tips could be found in articles like Discourse New User Tips and Tricks or Supported formatting in posts (markdown, BBCode, and HTML) - users - Discourse Meta

Though you are right. Maybe that fact and those links could be in a FAQ somewhere, so people know where to search.

We should move this to a new thread. :wink:

Yeah, I know it’s a Discourse forum, and there are lots of articles around. The one I linked above is pretty good. I just think a pinned post - if anyone reads them, I don’t know - in Meta with a few specific forum tips tailored to Obsidian users couldn’t hurt. I’ll write something up and post it in Meta. Anyone who has access: feel free to edit, chop it up, whatever :joy:
