Bug: Reference-style Markdown links not working

edited October 2018 in The Archive

I can't find any indication that this is an intentional choice, so here's a minor bug report:

Working:

[text](/url/)
[[wiki-style]]

Not working:

[text][id]
[id]: /url/

  • With "working", do you mean you cannot click on reference-style link anchor texts? (The "text" in the 2nd example)

    Correct.

    I noticed that markdown reference links are still not clickable in the current version of TA.

    I wonder what the best effect of clicking on the inline part of the link would be. It could be opening the final link target or scrolling to the reference, like a footnote. What do you think?

  • It seems they should open the final link target directly as scrolling is already accomplished by footnotes in the extended markdown syntax.
