Sometimes a page doesn't show up when trying to link it in a post using the @name or +name syntax. Is there any way to link it manually by its ID?

If that's possible, is there a way to specify the title? For example, lots of band pages have the title "Bandname (Official)" but of course it would be much nicer to link it using just "Bandname".

I've not managed to link a page, or a person, if it didn't show up in the autocompletion. – slybloty Oct 24 '13 at 15:18
