Document Titles

Document titles are resolved via whatever is found first, in this particular order:

  1. Through explit Wikilinks titles using the | syntax
  2. Front Matter title attribute
  3. First level-one header, e.g.:
    # This is my document
  4. Fallback to markdown file basename

in markdown, it will resolve literally to:

[Document Titles](
