Accessing Backlink Display Text

What I’m trying to do

I am using the templater plugin and it is working fine or as designed to. Below is the code from my template, found somewhere in the forums during my searching.

let title = tp.file.title;
if (title.startsWith(‘Untitled’)) {
await tp.file.rename(${title} + “-” +“YYYYMMDDHHmmss”));
} else {
await tp.file.rename(${title} + “-” +“YYYYMMDDHHmmss”));

So, when I create a new file the template to activate and rename the file to whatever the code is telling it to do.

In this instance I am creating the file from links similar to the below

[[S111| Creating a resource hierarchy]]

The format of the links always follows the pattern of: [[Snnn| Custom Display Text]]. However, there is an undesirable side effect of my code in that the title of my note is:


I would rather want it to be

Custom Display Text

Things I have tried

Tried to see if there was a way to access the backlinks data as it displays both the file name and Custom Display Text. But I was unable to find anything useful.

Also, I’m not even sure something like this is possible.
