The Stack Exchange (Personal Productivity) markdown right here is showing literally rather than as a named link. Don't know why.

Tag wiki excerpts do not support Markdown formatting, by design.

  • Is there a way to put a "clickable link" in a "Tag wiki excerpt"? And why is it designed that way?

    No, it can only be plain text. Since the excerpt in places like the tags list, the feeling was that allowing formatting could create excerpts that would be distracting or confusing for users.
