Hi Reid, Confluence can successfully link to anchors that have spaces in the anchor name.
I find the most effective way to link to an anchor is to use the Advanced tab in the Link dialog. There you can enter the following examples to link to an anchor anywhere in your site:
#anchor title Page Title#anchor title SPACEKEY:Page Title#anchor title
All three of these examples work (in order they are: same page, another page, page in another space).
Where it gets tricky is when you are linking from an external site, and need to construct a full URL. This is where Confluence would automatically remove the spaces for you, so you end up with a URL that looks like this:
Note that the page title is actually repeated in the URL, and the anchor name has spaces removed.
What I've seen many people do in the past is to add a link to the anchor on the same page, and then copy the URL when viewing the page to make sure they get the correctly rendered URL.
Hope this helps
I have raised a bug for this here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-41385
It would be fantastic if you could comment on the issue and provide an example of the type of link you're using (how you add the link - URL, Advanced tab etc).
I was not able to replicate your issue in Confluence Cloud, so may be specific to Confluence Server perhaps.
