Search existing topics when hyperlinking

Hi everyone, if I may give you a suggestion.

When in editor and hyperlinking a word in a post, it would be a great idea to write a word/keys and dynamically search for matching topics. Because I’m finding myself linking references to other topics.

I saw a similar feature on some wordpress plugins, to easily put anchors and relate content.

You can kind of do something similar when composing by opening the header search, typing your query, using the down arrow ↓ to select the topic you want, and then hitting a to insert the link into the composer (totally recognize that it’s a power-user feature, and something in the hyperlink modal would be much more discoverable).

I hate to be β€œthat guy” but I think category and tags need to appear there as well?

Also the closed icon/solved icon and so on like search shows. Basically the same as search, minus the excerpt in one line.

This has been updated, with support for categories, tags and topic status (closed/solved/pinned and so on).
