Backlinks doesn't recognize aliased internal links in callouts

Steps to reproduce

Open Sandbox. Create two new notes.

Note contains a callout with an aliased internal link:

> [!quote] x
> Bob is a [[Labs|Labradoodle]]

Note contains an alias:

  - Labradoodle

Labradoodles are cute.

Open core plugin Backlinks in sidebar and check linked and unlinked mentions for

Expected result

The backlink should show up in “Linked mention” and look like this:

> Bob is a [[Labs|Labradodle]]

The whole Link should be highlighted.

Actual result

Three(!) backlinks show up:

  • Unlinked mentions with two partial recognitions
  • Linked mention with the first line of the note

Additional information

Backlinks are displayed properly, when either the blockmark > is removed or the first line of the callout.

also experiencing this.

found this post via Internal Link Updates Fail within Titled Callouts. the problem in this post seems to only happen when the callout has a title

Same for the bug here. I tested it:

Without title backlinks are ok. Adding the title makes them weird.


will be fixed 1.6.4.
