Hi I want to get the post ID from the post selected in the insert/edit link button.

I would normally do:

    data-id="<?php echo $post->ID; ?>" 
    href="<?php the_permalink();?>">
    Sample page link

enter image description here

But whenever the user adds the links from the tinymce content editor all they get is the permalink, I don't know how to hook in. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Edit I would like to avoid a plugin. But this is what I am after.. ideally without the bloated [shortcode]

Not an exact answer to your question (hooking into the insert/edit link functionality), but possibly an alternate method that can achieve the same goal (inputting a permalink, outputting a Post ID):
