Feature request for AWB to put 's inside the wikilink when wikilink is already piped
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Many people put possessive s outside the wikilink even if the wikilink is piped liked this:
[[Canada men's national junior ice hockey team|Team Canada junior team]]'s

That is cruft and it makes the 's part a different color than the rest of the displayed wikilink, plus it delinks the 's part.

In cases where the wikilink is already piped, the apostrophe s should go inside the wikilink like this:
[[Canada men's national junior ice hockey team|Team Canada junior team's]]

This is common sense, and would be easy to implement in AWB. Ping me back. Cheers! Checkingfax

It's a false expectation that ' is included in the link trail

@Checkingfax please link to a WP / MOS policy page to confirm that there is consensus for this change

I do not fully understand Reedy's response.
