Check Wikilinks

Posted by corkstu, Last update over 2 years ago

Action to check all the [[wikilinks]] in a draft actually exist. I have been using [[wikilinks]] a lot and would change a title in a draft which breaks the wikilink(s) referring to it. This simply highlights my mess, doesn’t fix it!


  • script

    // get all [[links]]
    let results = draft.content.matchAll(/\[\[(.*?)\]\]/g);
    let output = [];
    for(let result of results){
    	let titlelink = result[1];
    	let drafts = Draft.queryByTitle(titlelink);
    	// title not found
    	if(drafts.length == 0){
    		output.push("- [[" + titlelink + "]]");	
    if(output.length == 0){
    	app.displayInfoMessage("All wikilinks exist as drafts!");
    	draft.setTemplateTag("content","### The following wikilinks do not exist:\n" + output.join("\n"));
