Things I have tried
I have searched these forums and in other places for the purpose and use case of %%. I have a good handle on YAML frontmatter. But I’ve also seen folks (e.g., Nick Milo) use %% as a type of frontmatter delimiter. These accomplish two different things as far as I can tell. YAML is now the accepted metadata convention, but that information is visible in the note’s preview. %% has other capabilities such as linking relevant notes so that they show up in the local graph. The benefit of using %% is that it is hidden in the preview.
What I’m trying to do
I’m trying to find the most efficient way to create frontmatter. I know YAML is the standard, but how might one use YAML and %% in combination? Or, should they be used in combination? Maybe this is a philosophical question, kind of like tag vs. link. I’m a musician and an academic, not a coder, so I’m sure there’s an actual meaning of %% that I’m missing.
