Link to anchor in UI Tab

Could somebody give an advice how to insert link to anchor that is placed in macros UI Tab within the same page

4 answers

It may be that the tab contains an included page.  Edit the page then click on "Excerpt include" for the desired localtab then click on "Go to included Page" then go to the section you are interested in and copy the link.  Hope this helps!

Just tried this. Not sure what you mean by copy the link. What link? 

I went to the section of the page I want to link TO. Inserted macro/Except include

typed the name of the page I was going to have link here. 

Then clicked go to included page, edited this page but had nothing to paste. Tried just copy/paste the excerpt include macro from the other page, but that doesn't even appear in the final rendering of the page.

In my particular case there is a link to the left of the heading.  Hover over the the heading then hover over the link to the left of the heading.  When you hover over the link it will display "copy link".  I guess this all depends on how your page is set up.  I'm no expert but this is what worked for me.

Only a workaround:

Link to a tabbed item

When navigating to a tab, the URL will be updated with a hash reference. This URL can be used to link directly to a tab located on a page. 


Use headings in the tab and insert the macro "Table of contents". Use the Include / Exclude Headings parameter to show only the headings in the tab. 

I tried this work around, but it doesn't seem to work. The link appears when I hover over it. But when I click nothing happens.

I have the same issue, can this be solved in near future?


Hi Nataly,

In macro UI tab, you can insert anchor as #<anchor name present in the page>. For more information please visit this document



Hi Santwana,

Thank you for answer!

But I'm afraid I should describe the issue more carefully. The case is the anchor is placed within one UI Tab, and the corresponding link (as #<anchor name present in the same page, but another UI Tab>) is placed within another UI Tab. And the link doesn't work.

Have you ever faced to such?



Could this problem be solved? I have the same problem and I am looking for a solution.
