Backlinks

To use Joplin as a knowledge base it would be useful to have a “what links here”?

What do you think?

I think this might be quite some effort and additionally there will be ongoing maintenance required. To do this you basically have to create a separate table and maintain a source - target list. Thus every time you touch a link, maintenance has to be done on that table.

I was thinking that this could be implemented like a plugin, so every time you want backlink info a script would run over all of your notes and find backlinks. This could be slow for a lot of notes, but will otherwise work. I don’t see this being a core feature in Joplin however.
