This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Working with Anchors
The page is "D2 - Name Edit" the anchor is "NE_SM_SO"
I tried the Advanced link as described in the arcticle : Page Name#Anchor Name, D2 - Name Edit#NE_SM_SO
This is the link that it resolved to:
I tried the Web Link going directly to the page.
Both links go to the top of the page.
If the feature no longer exists, why is there a topic that explains how to use it? https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/anchors-139442.html
I wasted a lot of time trying to track down why my links weren't working. There should be an explanation on the page that you cannot link to anchors on another page.
That sets a pretty poor example for an application that is geared towards documentation.
After checking how the TOC macro links to a heading, I noticed that there is an extra "id-" after the hash. Inserting this fixed the Anchor Link. It does not precisely get to your anchor but close enough to bring the content to the user's attention.
