      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Would it be possible to extend the same functionality used by [pagetitle] links to

      {include:pagetitle}

      macros? Can

      {include:pagetitle}

      macros be treated like [pagetitle] links?

      Links such as [pagetitle] automatically change when the page title changes (is renamed). For example, lets say that I have a page named "Grape" and a link to [Grape] on the "Food" page and then I rename page "Grape" to "Raisin" then the link on the "Food" page would automatically become [Raisin]. In other words links are renamed or follow when the page they reference is renamed.

      When I check the "History" tab I on the "Food" page I see "Grape" as an "Outgoing Link". When I check the "History" tab on the "Grape" page I see "Food" as an "Incomming Link".

      The problem is that when I have an

      {include:Grape}

      macro and then rename page "Grape" to "Raisin" my

      {include:Grape}

      does not change to

      {include:Raisin}

      and essentially becomes a broken reference.

      {include:pagetitle}

      macros do not appear in the "Outgoing Links" section or the "Incomming Links" section. I wish that they would.
