    If you limit your use of third party plugins, you can always use https://github.com/zoni/obsidian-export for this as well. I originally built it for exactly this use case (but now also use it as a crucial step in my pipeline to publish content to my own website)

    If you add in obsidian-export as a build step (disclaimer: I'm the author), there is no need for people to change their Obsidian settings. Obsidian-export turns WikiLinks into regular Markdown links (and it flattens embedded notes) :)

    Worth noting I maintain a project which does exactly this: https://github.com/zoni/obsidian-export

    I have similar folders to [Oudwin](https://www.reddit.com/user/Oudwin/)... - dm - _inbox - assets - checklist - communications - research-reference - elements - sessions Additionally, I have had reasonable success using [obsidian-export](https://github.com/zoni/obsidian-export) to export my Obsidian vault to CommonMark. From there you have more options. I then build html pages using [mdbook](https://rust-lang.github.io/mdBook/) to control the information that is revealed to players. I am playing with using [MkDocs](https://www.mkdocs.org/) to see if it offers more control/flexibility. Regardless, the /elements folder contains all the lore chunks of the world including information I keep on the PCs. The /communications and /sessions folders can contain info with links to /elements that are revealed as needed. I make heavy use of transclusion ![[CoolThingFormAnotherFolder]] to keep it a bit more elegant and some custom styles are needed to make it how it look how I wish.
  • New User - Should I stay with pure markdown or use Obsidian extra commands/syntax?

    Shameless plug: obsidian-export. It will convert [[WikiLinks]] and ![[Embeds]] to plain Markdown (among a few other things) so you'll always have a way to go back if Obsidian doesn't work out the way you hoped.
  • What Settings to Use to Make Notes Created in Obsidian the Most Universally Compatible

    So really you can't get what you want at all. You could try an external tool like this to export your notes to commonmark which is more widely supported. Ultimately if you are changing the path to files outside of obsidian (meaning they won't be automatically updated) you will break links. So maybe your best bet is to use wikilinks + an export tool.
  • I followed the steps in this blog and cloned my resulting repo. Now I can use Obsidian as my website CMS and text editor!

    If that's something you would miss, you could hook obsidian-export into a build pipeline to convert Obsidian-flavored markdown to regular Markdown (CommonMark, really).

    While this would require an intermediate step, you could use https://github.com/zoni/obsidian-export to convert to regular markdown understood by pandoc in the mean time (full disclosure: I'm the author)

    Obsidian has a paid publishing add-on as well, but I wrote obsidian-export to be able to build my own publishing pipeline which uses the static site generator Hugo.
