Linking to specific place of page


I have a question about links. I need a link to a specific place of another page but i can't use anchors or headings because is necessary to input pagename - if i change pagename or heading name link will break.

Can you give me advice how to create unbreakable link to heading in another page?

Thank you.

You'll get a permalink if you link to the page by page-ID.

You can get the page ID by going to Tools>Attachments on a given page and looking at the page ID in the URL. It will be something like:

https://[base-url]/pages/viewpageattachments.action?<strong< a="">>pageId=1234567890

Then get the permalink for the page using this format:


No, i'm trying to get permalink not to page but to specific place of another page.

I can't use anchors because link to anchors have syntax: "page name#anchor name".

If i change "page name" link will break.

I need link like something this: "page-ID#anchor". Does such links exist?

Damn. You're doesn't work if you do "page ID#anchor name."

I assume you've looked at the anchor macro?

Thank you for link. But i wrote her and did not find answer for my question. I asked product advocate team lead and he said this function is not supported at the moment.

I hope to see links like "page_ID#anchor name" in near future.

Bill, thank you for your time.

I have solved the problem by using what it known to be working: I have added a test link to the anchor in the same page where the anchor was defined. 

After updating I clicked on the test link and it correctly jumped to the anchor but showing in the address bar the whole required link: .....pageId=xxxx#<page-name-without-space>-<anchor_name>

Whatever version you have, this way you will get the link you need.
