  1. when I try to insert a link to another page, I couldn't search for it
  2. how to link to an anchor now?

Hello @Jie_Kang,

Thank you for contacting us about this. Happy to help.

  1. You might not be able to find another page that you want to link to if you haven't viewed the page before. There's a bug for this: CONFCLOUD-66569
  2. As for Anchors, see Confluence Editing Improvements:


    The anchor macro is temporarily unavailable, but there are two workarounds for this:

    • Add a table of contents macro to your page, as this automatically generates anchor links for each page header. 
      To find those links, right-click (or on mobile, long-press) any of the headers in the table of contents, and copy the link address. 

    • Anchors are automatically generated for each page header. 
      To link to one, use the https://pageURL#headingtext. The anchor text must be formatted as it is on the page, including punctuation marks, but without spaces.

      For example, to link to this section, we would add #Anchors to the page URL, like so:

    Let me know if you have any questions about that.
