Can we create a reference link in Rblogdown webpage

Hi all,

In R blogdown webpage, Can we create a reference link so that I only need to change the links in R file. For Example I will create Link1 and Link2 as shown below. So now can we render this Link1 and Link2 in R blogdown .md files, so once I change the links in the below document, the webpage should be rendered. Let say, In Config.toml file (of hugo-universal-theme) there is literally a facebook link. But I do not require this. I should only use this Link1 to render facebook page. Is it possible to achieve this?

Do you have a working example to look into about this ?
It will be easier to understand.

Blogdown is an R package, that uses Hugo to render a website thanks to some hugo templates. It is possible that what you want to achieve is in the hugo template feature or customization and not on the R side.

Sure I will explain below. In the below .md file (from devcows/hugo-universal-theme), you can see the link for github right? So my question was, can we name as Link1 (see Fiq2). So this Link1 is actually https://github.com/spf13/hugo/releases. This reference should be given in other file like shown in Fiq3

Link2 = https://facebook.com

Hi cderv. Wanted to check if this explanation was sufficient? :slight_smile:
