Make permalink more easily accessible for linking
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I often want to link directly to a topic or post using wikitext (e.g. [[Topic:...|My topic title]]). But clicking on "Permalink" in the menu results in a whole new tab loading up. Grabbing the topic ID from the URL for this new tab and then closing the tab requires several clicks. Maybe the menu itself could include the topic ID at the top for quick copy-pasting.

Default behavior in services like Onedrive or Google photos is that permalink button opens window with URL to copy.
It would be fine, if wiki premalinks should behave similar.

Our team does not have the bandwidth to take on new feature request for structured discussions, but this does sound like a good idea, so we are marking it with "good first bug".
