I am attempting to make a Bookshelf/Library using the metadata to pull into a dataview.
I am having issues getting my YAML to work.
What I have tried
I have looked in the forums, asked on discord, and was sent to the Vault (which didnt really help).
I have tried using a YAML verifier to see if I am doing something incorrect:
But it keeps telling me that I have valid YAML, whereas Obsidian says it’s invalid
I am so confused… What am I doing wrong?
I think you can’t use markdown links in yaml as Metadata is processed as plain text.
Use double colons :: for data values in the body of the document. Use single colons for values in the front matter.
As @alltagsverstand and @pop said in yaml you need to use the syntax
key: value, not
Besides that, you can’t use the cover format
![image](link). Use only
cover: link and the rest you add it in dataview query.
(In discord, if about dataview, post asks in the topic #dataview)
This worked perfectly!! Thank you so much!!
