Alternative name for the link won't show in preview

What I’m trying to do

I’m trying to make a link within an infobox from ITS theme to another note, but under a different name than the note is titled. It works in edit mode, however in preview it will just show the name included with brackets. It won’t convert to a link.

Things I have tried

I have tried making the link outside the infobox, which does work; both in edit and preview mode. It just seems like it won’t work in the infobox. Is there a way to make it work or is there unfortunately no way to make it happen?


Could you please show some more of the markdown around/containing your infobox?

Of course.

Not sure if I’ve got the spelling right here, but if that link is in a table you’ll need to escape the | character with a \

Those are not ordinary callouts, but tables.

In there you need to use \|, since otherwise it’s consider a column divider.


that worked! thank you so much
