How can I achieve this on my own Discourse instance? I dont want - Meta Discourse or - My Website Name from showing in these resolved links.
I have changed the links above to better represent my question.
The reason why the Meta Discourse link does not show - Meta Discourse and my website link does, is because my website link is for a category, while the meta.discourse link is for a topic as @supermathie has pointed out.
To combat this issue on my own website, I will simply use [My Category](https://MyWebsite.com/t/MyCategory) markdown to avoid it adding the - My Website Name to the end of it. as @Heliosurge has pointed out.

You can also do this to the link

If internal you can shortner it to this.

In a perfect world, I was hoping for a checkbox to untick [ ] Exclude Website Name from Internal Category links
This perfect world solution would prevent other users who post https://MyWebsite.com/t/MyCategory (without markdown - [Text](link)) and having it resolve to Category - My Website Name
So although @heilyatsitepoint solution does not solve the issue for other users posting category links without markdown, it will at least solve the issue for when I make posts (since I will always use the markdown).
For the remaining of other users posts…I may just have to turn a blind eye…or edit their post and add the markdown for them. - Yes, I have a little bit of OCD lol.
I love that feature! I was worried that if someone was to right click and copy the link it would copy /t/ /257646 but it will actually still copy the entire URL which is great for those who right click and share outside of the forum. Win-Win :).
This handy if your also considering a domain change as all links that use site domain in the l8nk will break. A client decided to change from “.ai” to “.com” had to fix some important links manually and any post with images still requored using the wrench to rebuild html o fix image displays in posts.
