#17366 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Internal Linking draft posts support

At my blog I write monthly a marathon. In this marathon 5 games of a certain series are reviewed. Just for avoiding lazyness I make first the posts in draft... but when I try to link to a certain draft the post didn't show up... I think this would be a very handy feature.

I don't get it -- are you questioning pingbacks (which go through a public API) or something like internal linking?

When you write a post and still put it into draft that you already can link with it!

  • Keywords close added
  • Summary changed from Pingback to draft posts to Internal Linking draft posts support

Ok, Not pingbacks at all, The Internal Linking feature only links to posts which are published.

It only links to published posts as those are the only ones which have a public URL, a draft post has a draft url which may change before it's published, it doesn't make sense to link to them for that reason.

IMO: closable as wontfix; it's not a use case which can really be supported, nor one most people would intentionally want to do.
