Link to an anchor in different page using a HTML macro

Hi, I have tried to link to an anchor which is located in different page by using a HTML macro:


Story : 

Page A: there is an anchor called "bottom"

In Page B, I want to link to the bottom anchor located in Page A and open Page A in a new tab and thus i use below HTML macro:

<a href="Page A#bottom" target="_blank">Click to open Page A bottom in a new tab</a>

 

Result: 

This html does NOT work now (it works before!). It does open the Page A in a new tab, but it has not direct to the bottom of Page A. 

 

Appreciate if anyone could provide me any feedback smile

Hi Iria, did you try following the instructions at the bottom of the page?  When using an HTML macro, you don't have any access to the "magic" link-making methods in Confluence, so you have to use the following format: Page A#PageA-bottom"

Cool, I try it and it does work :) Thank you so much!
