It gives following output:

This conversation is 3.5 years old, things have changed.

I'd suggest you ask a new question, so more people see it, and tell us versions and what you're doing.

That made it work. What you need to do is change the renderer to WikiMarkup then enclose your link in [] brackets.

I'm currently trying it on the Wiki renderer.

Is it possible to make it work in custom field options too ?
