When you make a link to another page in tt_content - header_link field, it is shown as the uid of that page (7.6).
Especially for new editors this is confusing. They would like to see the name of the page you are linking to.
Some changes are already done in version 8. But I do not know the further plans.

Would be great to show name and uid as e.g. in the example?

  • Status changed from New to Closed

This has been solved since 8.6 with the "Improved link element and validation" feature (see https://typo3.org/news/article/typo3-v86-released/ ) so I think I can close it.

If you think that this is the wrong decision then please reopen it or open a new issue with a reference to this one. Thank you.
