The Confluence has a helpful page for creating anchor links in content. Here's a lovely screen cap of what I'm trying to get:
Apparently, when I click "Link", or Ctrl-K, I should see a sidebar with options, like "Advanced".
All I'm seeing is a helpful floating dialog with suggested links. No sidebar and no "Advanced" tool to link to existing anchor tags. I have widened my viewport to ensure that it's not a responsive issue.
Entering "#myanchortag" is not recognized in this floating dialog and unable to save. I understand that Confluence has presented an upgrade to its UI, but I'm reticent to dig through the changelogs. I'm unable to find where there is a setting to enable this in Confluence.
Hi @Sam Walton
I assuming you work on confluence cloud. And for confluence cloud, the "anchor feature" was disabled and replaced by linking headers.
Many of the users complained about that. Here is one of many many other threads:
Here is the "new" feature (linking headers) eplained.
Thank you for your prompt response. Following the "linking headers" I find this:
To get the heading link
Hover over the section title when viewing the page.
Click the link icon to copy the heading.
My existing h2 headings don't seem to have this feature. No matter, I'll recreate my headings. In the "Insert (more)" I don't find anything about sections or links or headers.
Perhaps I should create a section? I inserted one and hovered over parts that might be considered a header, but find nothing that would indicate it's a linking header. I assume our Confluence is cloud as that's my only interface to it.
If it is a Section, how do you give it a header to link? Editing this new section reveals only content, no heading I can find.
@Dominic Lagger then why do I have access to CREATE shortcuts? It's confusing to give people access to tools they can't use
Also, you should really add this functionality back. There's currently no reasonable way to e.g. have a template where you customize a link based on variables
