Org-Mode link syntax?

Typically when linking to another file in org-mode you would use this syntax:

file:path/to/file.org

However this doesn't work in blot. I'd love if this syntax would be implemented as C-c C-l defaults to this behavior.

If this isn't possible with blot, what is the preferred syntax?

Blot uses pandoc to handle org mode files, so their features are our features right now:

Pandoc docs on Org

I will take a look and follow up with you about the link syntax

Ah, a quick search on the pandoc page you sent, doesn't seem to support links. I'd love to know what format for links are supported!

The following syntaxes work for links:

[[vcg3rd.net][Link To]]

[[https://github.com/jgm/pandoc/issues/6916][Bug]]

I have now documented this on the Org-mode page

I would love if the standard syntax for org-mode links, like was implemented for images, [[file:_clock.png]] would be implemented for org-mode files like [[file:test.org]]. This would allow org-mode users to follow links inside of emacs with the standard org-follow-link command.

In the meantime, I've tried these various link formats for internal links, and still can't get linking to work. I have two files in the same directory, test.org and another-test.org. In test.org I have the following:

[[file:another-test][another test]]

[[another test][another test]]
[[another-test][another-test]]
[[another-test.org][another-test.org]]

None of these version are working. You can see the output at my blog org test page

The ideal syntax, which would allow for normal emacs commands when linking between files would be [[file:another-test.org][another test]] or [[file:another-test.org]].

Sounds good, I will make that work for links between org mode files
