How best to link to headings

In Confluence 4, I can type [ and it lets me search for pages in my Confluence to link to, which is great. But how then do I link to headings on that page? So far, the only way I have found is to manually copy the entire URL and link to that. I was hoping the fancy search function could root out headings within a page too.

This can be done by going through the 'Advanced' tab in the 'Insert Link' dialog as described in this page:

My version of Confluence (3.4.7) does not include an 'Advanced' tab in the 'Insert Link' dialog.

I can insert the link to a heading using the heading name in the 'Web Link' -> 'URL' field.

Each heading item has an id attribute that you can append to the url of the page to link directly to a heading.

However you don't need to use the page url, you can do it with the page name and wiki-markup, eg:

[My Page Name#MyHeadingId]
