# General Infos (Folder Structure, Links)

Last updated Sep 27, 2022 - Edit Source

Quartz runs on top of  Hugo so all notes are written in  Markdown and can be edited through any editor.

## # Folder Structure

The content of the Glossary is in content/term folder. The rest outside of content/ is the website/framework.

To edit the main home page, open /content/_index.md.

To create a link between terms in the glossary, just create a normal link using Markdown pointing to the document in question. Please note that all links should be relative to the root /content path.

 1 2  For example, I want to link this current document to term/config.md. [A link to the config page](term/config.md) 

Similarly, you can put local images anywhere in the /content folder.

 1 2  Example image (source is in content/images/example.png) ![Example Image](/content/images/example.png) 

## # Lower Case

Terms are lower case that links are also lowercase. When we create a link to a term, I usually capitalize the beginning of each word to make it look nice. E.g [Apache Arrow](term/apache%20arrow.md). Other such as YAML I write all in capitals.

We didn’t activate wikilinks, but that would be an option as well. See more on editing.

## # Metatag with Front Matter

Hugo is picky when it comes to metadata for files. Make sure that your title is double-quoted and that you have a title defined at the top of your file like so. You can also add tags here as well.

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12  --- title: "What is a Glossary?" tags: - example-tag - here i can add more we keep it lower case url: "term/my-other-domain" aliases: - Digital Garden - Second Brain --- Rest of your content here. 
• url: this is not needed, only if the default link (name of the note) is not sufficient
• all spaces will be replaced with - (dash).
• aliases: Are like tags, you can add multiple and they will be linkable same as a adding a new term would be.
