Cross-reference with automatic title

I’d like to refer to another page on my document, and have Hugo automatically insert title of that page, with a href to the document. Can this be done?

I know I can do it myself with [title]({{< relref "doc"}}) but I’d like the title to be automatically the same and automatically updated, as other static site genenerators do.

Can’t find anything about this in the docs.

You can create your own shortcode that does this.

Edited to add: You can also use render hook templates.

This works for me. Create a shortcode xref.html:

{{ with .Site.GetPage (.Get 0) }}<a href="{{ .RelPermalink }}">{{ .Title }}</a>{{ end }}

Then call it with {{< xref "myTopic" >}}
