Backlinks: Option to Hide Unlinked Mentions from Notes with Linked Mentions

Use case or problem

Often in documentation, a keyword will appear numerous times in the same context. It’s typical for the first mention of a keyword to include an internal link, but for subsequent mentions to be plain-text. This can create a lot of “false positives” in the “Unlinked Mentions” section of Backlinks.

Proposed solution

Create a configuration option for the Backlinks plugin to hide Unlinked Mentions from Notes with Linked Mentions. When checked, the Backlinks plugin can compare the Linked and Unlinked Mentions and skip any Unlinked Mentions that are from the same Notes containing Linked Mentions.
