How come links are not redirecting to a heading on a different page on the updated Confluence?

After the new update links are no longer redirecting to a certain heading with the Advanced link option (My page#My heading). When I click on a link it takes me to the desired page, but it doesn't scroll the page down to the heading.

Before the update everything worked out smoothly. But I discovered today that links are no longer working correctly and this causes me problems because there are a lot of pages and a lot of links that need to be connceted.

What should I do? Does anyone else have this problem?

I wrote this Javascript to be able to link to anchors that are within expand blocks, but it also checks if an anchor link is missing the page title and adds it automatically, which might be the issue that is preventing your pages from working properly. Maybe you could try it?


var expandAnchor = function() {
  var hash = decodeURIComponent(window.location.hash);
  if (hash) {
    var hashPageTitle = AJS.params.pageTitle.split(" ").join("");
    if (hash.indexOf(hashPageTitle) === -1) {
      if (jQuery.isNumeric(hashPageTitle.substring(0,1))) {
        hash = "#id-" + hashPageTitle + "-" + hash.slice(1);
      } else {
        hash = "#" + hashPageTitle + "-" + hash.slice(1);
    var escapedId = hash.replace(/[!"$%&'()*+,.\/:;<=>?@[\\\]^`{|}~]/g, "\\$&");
AJS.toInit(function() {
  jQuery(window).bind('hashchange', function() {
