Aha! Everything is working brilliantly, except for this one decision. And this goes to the heart of our discussion here, LOLLLL!
See this link:https://neuron.zettel.page/id.html
Use title IDs when you want truly future-proof link IDs that work on any text editor. However, note that this comes at the cost that you are willing to rename them (manually or using a script) across your Zettelkasten if the title ID of any of your notes changes.
Here, I have to make a choice. Do I use filenames with ID (as in, the datenumber field 202008081112.md), OR do I use the title yaml field in the actual note itself? Many pages back, I knew this would be a critical decision loll, that's why I'm laughing....because no matter how different these software are, they all have to make this fundamental choice here .
THis guy has left it up to the user, which is nice. But, he is saying that it does come with consequences.
If I use the ID number, this is easier in that I never have to rename the html files which are only generated once (they don't update if you change the filename of your md or your yaml header).
If I use a descriptive title that I can freely modify, then the problem there is I have to update the html files with some script or manually (PITA).
If you don't want the headache of renaming html files constantly....use the ID.md filenames
If you want a descriptive html filename...use a descriptive md file.
I said earlier it would be great if someone wrote a nifty tool that can do these renaming functions. I think it would get used a lot.
