Hi @Charisma Riley and all the Atlassian Community!
Just do the following:::
Just got this to work. For the issue about space in the links, here's a fix:
Simply replace every space in your heading with a hyphen. Some examples below:
If heading is "Section 1", the link will be #Section-1
If heading is "Section - 1", the link will be #Section---1
Hope this helps...
Was this fixed?
According to https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/confluence-cloud-editor-roadmap/ links to headers are supposed to be natively supported.
But they sure don't show up in any link interface we have in the new editor.
I've found a solution, but this didn't work for me...
Try this out, which is explained here:
Over the next couple of weeks, we're rolling out the ability to copy the link to a heading so that you can connect your users to the most important sections of a page.
To get the heading link
Edit: This behaviour works in view mode. so you have to copy the link in view mode and paste it in edit mode...
I totally agree with you... There are a lot of users complaining this. Check out some other posts about anchors.
This is ridiculous and will take an enormous amount of time to undertake on some of our pages. Have Atlassian responded with any suggested changes to improve this view / edit mode.
Me too, tried several ways and sources for the link (copied it from the header in view mode, from the table of contents, created the link manually as documented, but nothing works.
The legacy editor was way better, and even after more than a year of releasing this new editor, Atlassian doesn't seem to fix very simple issues.
I just found this article, using the latest version, still no better support for linking within the page, but I was able to go get it to work actively bring me to the desired section.
The link syntax that worked for me is "#<HeadingTextWithNoSpaces>"
for example, here is my section heading:
This is Section 100
The Advanced link setup would be as shown:
Hey Chris, New here also. I have been having this exact issue. I had some punctuation in my title that I was using, I removed the '?' & "'"
My heading was "What is a hiring manager's role?"
- Every time it would just leave me with the # also.
I removed all punctuation and tried again and it worked. Hopefully, that is helpful.
We are on version 6.15.4 and this works for me:
But far from efficient.
If you have your Headings created and want to add the links, you can publish the page and have it in View on one browser tab and in Edit on another browser tab.
Then you can grab the links from the View and paste them into the Edit tab using the link tool. This saves you having to jump in and out of Edit mode.
