How do you personally handle Drafts, Images, Files, etc., in terms of workﬂow?
I’m thinking of the following:
Do you personally underscore Folders or individual ﬁles?

My preferred folder structure looks something like this:
My blog ├─ 2021 │ ├─ 02-06 Pears │ │ ├─ post.txt │ │ ├─ _image.jpg │ ├─ 03-08 Apples │ │ ├─ post.txt │ │ ├─ _image.jpg │ ├─ 04-21 Bananas │ │ ├─ post.txt │ │ ├─ _image.jpg ├─ 2020 ├─ 2019 ├─ Drafts
The beneﬁts of this structure are:
I don’t like editing templates locally so I don’t have a Templates folder. As for drafts: I don’t use them myself anymore — I’m happy to just edit my site live. If I was working on a site on which this wasn’t possible then I would stick the post subfolder inside the Drafts folder, and move it outside when ready to publish (the relative paths will mean that any images won’t break!).Answered Jun 7 '21 at 19:40 · Improve this answer
Is there a way to generate this structure automatically using Obsidian?Answered Jun 18 '21 at 6:36 · Improve this answer
I’m not sure! It might be worth making a post in Obsidian’s forumAnswered Jun 28 '21 at 15:55 · Improve this answer
When I embed the images in my post, it works! (I put the images in a self-contained folder with the post)
But, now the images are also individual posts on my Blot. :(Answered Jul 31 '21 at 5:42 · Improve this answer
To prevent images becoming their own post, you should start their ﬁle names with an underscore. This works for any ﬁle that Blot would ordinarily turn into a post. It also works for entire folders whose name starts with an underscore.Answered Jul 31 '21 at 17:22 · Improve this answer
I originally added images without an underscore and it created individual posts for them. I then added the underscore and moved them to the same folder as the post but there are still entries for the old image posts on the home page and archives. Using mono template but also tried with the default blog template.Answered Sep 14 '21 at 22:40 · Improve this answer
