In my answer to Where can I ask questions about TVs?, the internal links to questions on Movies & TV were not converted to question titles.

Unconverted internal links

The titles display properly in the markdown preview when editing the question, but revert back to regular hyperlinks once posted.

Converted internal links (Edit preview)

Why aren't these internal links being converted to question titles?

  • Probably a regex discrepancy between server-side and client-side parser. – Adam Lear Jul 21 '17 at 18:53
  • @AdamLear According to What limitations does converting question links to links with titles have?, there may be a limit of 5 communities that can be linked in a single post. However, the linked post was marked as [status-complete], so I'm not sure if that limitation still applies. – Stevoisiak supports Monica Jul 21 '17 at 18:56
  • Yes, what balpha said there still applies, that's why the links to the sixth site are not converted. He fixed some bug related to the behavior when posting lots of links to one site, which is not relevant in your case. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jul 21 '17 at 19:58
