A micro.blog plugin idea (that I have no idea how to implement, though): as @rknightuk did with YouTube links, maybe have something in place that allows me to, once adding one of my own post’s link to a new post, convert that URL into a link to it. I’m thinking it could allow me to use ... danielsantos.micro.blog

@sod I’m aware of markdown syntax. My mistake, I didn’t explain it well. I was thinking something more in the likes of [[wikilinks]], so if I wrote [[My personal view on Netflix’s Wednesday]] it would automatically link to the URL.

The upside would be not having to remember the URL. The downside is that I know Hugo and other SSGs don’t support wikilinks out of the box. As for the digital gardening part, [[wikilinks]] are bi-directional, so if I link to my post from one page, the linked post becomes aware that there’s a link to it somewhere else in the site. Quite like Obsidian.md and Logseq allow…

@danielsantos Okay, at least you're not the only one wanting wikilink-support in Hugo. Hopefully, it will arrive someday. 😊

Is the actual syntax important, or would [My personal view on Netflix's Wednesday]() be acceptable? If so, and if you're okay with backlinks only being available to visitors with JavaScript enabled, it's quite possible to write a little Micro.blog plug-in for this.

@sod as interesting as a plug-in like that could be, I guess I’m actually after something that could mimic wikilinks flawlessly. Currently I’m taking notes with Logseq and using a plug-in which exports notes that I later publish with Hugo. There are two shortcodes I have in a theme to list “related”, or “linking here” pages. Just don’t know whether it would be possible to use it in MB…
