I wanted to propose to have a type of content called “memo”.
- Memos are pages without titles that are linked via tags or backlinks to other notes.
- When you click on them, they just pop up on the screen.
- They can potentially be limited in number of words
- Memos can be converted to blocks and blocks can be converted to memos
- All memos can be listed or in a grid in a “memos” option on the left sidebar.
Sometimes I don’t want to populate a page. I just want an atomic note without a title to write something inside. If it’s good, I’ll add it to a page.
How about a sketch or screenshot so this is easier to understand?
And there’s no way to link to them?
The can be linked via tags and wiki links.
They don’t have a parent but can be given one (a page or a whiteboard)
That’s the part I don’t understand. Can you give examples of these links?
Now I understand what you’re asking.
You’re asking whether I can link from a certain page to this memo. The answer is Yes.
Let me break down the referencing. We have two matters:
Referencing a page or tag from inside a memo. I think this is relatively trivial. Using tags and backlinks we can easily do this.
Referencing a memo from a page. I think this is the matter you were asking. A memo is a block that lives outside a page. it doesn’t have a direct parent (the parent can be some internal page). It can be referenced the same way we reference other blocks.
Is that more clear?
I think I understand. I think you want something like the Contents section, but with special card-like styling, similar to how https://github.com/cannibalox/logtools styles blocks into columns.
Wow. That was a bulleye.
Amazing how you managed to link it to the old contents section to my suggestion.
