I have a Confluence (Server, 6.7.0) page with the title "5 Information security policies". (Yes, with a "hardcoded" heading number... possibly too much information: this heading is a "control" from ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Annex A.)
The page contains the heading "5.1.2 Review of the policies for information security". (If Confluence supported search'n'replace across pages out of the box, I would consider chunking the page so that this "5.1.2" heading was its own page, and the problem I'm having would evaporate. But that's another discussion.)
I've inserted an Anchor macro, with the anchor name "5.1.2", at the start of that "5.1.2 ..." heading.
Here's what I did to create a link to that anchor (that heading) from another page in the same space:
When I view the saved page and inspect the resulting link, here's the URL (I've replaced some strings with "..."):
http:// ... /pages/createpage.action?spaceKey= ... &title=5+Information+security+policies&linkCreation=true&fromPageId=...
Clicking the link creates a new page, which is not what I want.
How do I create a link to the anchor? What am I doing wrong?
Is there is an issue with the periods in the anchor?
