Linking

To link to another zettel, put the Zettel ID inside angle brackets1:

This is a zettel file, which links to another zettel:

* <ef3dke98>

Such a link instructs neuron to automatically create a connection between the associated zettels, which ultimately affects the Folgezettel Heterarchy of your zettel graph. In Web interface, neuron will automatically display the title of the linked zettel.

If your link is merely a reference to another zettel, and you do not wish it to be part of the Folgezettel Heterarchy, but only the graph connection, use the cf2 query flag (eg: <ef3dke98?cf>).

This is a zettel file, which refers to another zettel without 
strongly linking to it:

* <ef3dke98?cf>

Neuron will link the zettels, but the link would be ignored when building the Folgezettel Heterarchy. This is especially useful to ensure sensible clusters.

Advanced linking

  1. Neuron additionally supports “wiki-style” linking. [[ef3dke98]] is the same as <ef3dke98>.

    NOTE: This is an experimental feature; it may be changed or even completely removed in future. Unless you know what you are doing, you should always use <..> style for linking, and avoid wiki-style links, in your neuron notes.

    Wiki-style linking was added to allow users to edit their neuron notes in existing Zettelkasten software like Zettlr. Note that those software may not recognize the full range of Neuron links. See #229 for details.

  2. The abbreviation cf. (short for the Latin: confer/conferatur, both meaning “compare”) is used in writing to refer the reader to other material to make a comparison with the topic being discussed. Wikipedia
