linkTo() create links to aliases
May 12th, 2011, 5:38am
 
In this post mentioned a case where it would be useful for the aliases shown on a map of an agent to have the same links displayed as for the original notes.  Following Mark Anderson's advice, perhaps this could be done if linkTo() were able to create links to aliases.

I realize actually performing the coding for this suggestion must be fraught with many hairy unknowns, and appreciate the complexity (as far as I understand it).  That said, it would immensely contribute to my own map making, as in the case I'm now working with, and others.  

(I believe I'm not asking for inheritance - in the genetic, automatic sense - but coerced cosmetic congruence.  But, that might be a distinction without a difference.)

FWIW, I've already submitted an email report on the issue of (un)link operators and aliases. I'd agree with your presumption that there may be good engineering reasons why what might appear intuitive is perhaps not so easy to achieve in practice.

Related to this issue (and probably easier to execute), it really would be nice to be able to easily locate all of the aliases of a note.  Assuming there isn't already a way to quickly do it and I've missed it.  There have been a number of times where I've thought this would help with navigation if nothing else.

Have you read these articles? Querying for aliases - agents and Querying for aliases - find(). I think the latter addresses your problem.
