Rows with links to other pages in the primary field do strange things

We have a “Features” table where the contents of the primary “Name” text field is typically a link to another page. That leads to a bunch of strange behaviors:

  • The row is often referred to by a page id of the link instead of the hypertext - e.g. when someone leaves a comment on the [Browser Merge Projects and Pages] row, I get an email saying that the row “Browser-Merge-Projects-Pages_su_Tx” has been updated.
  • The hypertext doesn’t get matched in the new table text search
  • The name also comes through as the id and not the hypertext in Zapier actions
