Org-roam and aliases

I just learned that Org-roam supports aliases. This means that I can reference pages in my Org-roam database in more than one way. 

For example, I might want to have a page for World War II but when mentioning it I would just use WWII. It’s done like this…

#+TITLE: World War II #+ROAM_ALIAS: "WWII" "World War 2" 

This is really handy. Even real” Roam doesn’t support this as easily yet.

It’s in the docs. I should read them more often.
