 As at baseline

^inboundLinks( ["start", "list-item-prefix", "list-item-suffix", "end"] )^

returns all of the notes that have basic links to the current note, formatted as an unordered list, except prototype links. The logical counterpart of this code is ^outboundLinks^. This code does not include inbound text links; unlike the case with ^basicLinks^ (where such links are in the body text and arguable already 'listed'), there is no method to include inbound text links in the overall inbound link list. There is no single code to list all inbound links.

If the optional start, list-item-prefix, list-item-suffix, end arguments are omitted then the default values of <ul>, <li>, </li>, </ul> are used.

This allows you to format the group of links as an HTML list or table in the exact format you want, where "start" is quoted text that will be inserted before all of the links, "end" is text that will be inserted after all of the links, "list-item-prefix" is text that will be inserted before each link, and "list-item-suffix" is text that will be inserted after each link. See more on altering list type or other HTML output.

Mark-up elements embedded in ^inboundLinks^ are evaluated.

Exported links use the CSS class and target based on their underlying Tinderbox link values, if one is specified; the link type value is not picked up as a class name.

Note that unlike other link in/outbound link codes this code and ^outboundLinks^ do not offer an option link type filter.

Item objects source and destination may be used in expressions to indicate from where data used within the expression's arguments is drawn.

Originals and aliases export their own basic links (i.e. aliases can differ), but if an alias has no in/outbound basic links it will export those of the original.

Also see ^inboundBasicLinks^, ^inboundTextLinks^.

The export is relative to current rather than this, facilitating work with included files.
