I have a bug that's pretty easy to reproduce for me.
1. Go to a confluence page with headings and where it's long enough that there are several screens worth of content
2. Hover over a heading (not the first one)
3. Click on the anchor to copy an anchor link
4. Close the tab and make a new tab and try to go to the link you just copied
It does to sort of try to go there for a second but after the client-side stuff finishes initing and flashing and moving things around, you're left at the very top of the article.
Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to meet you.
I've encountered this issue myself. Have you tested in both Firefox and Chrome, and do you face the problem in both?
There are two issues that I am aware of right now; one is the problem you've encountered, and the other is within pages. I've seen in past instances of this bug that Firefox isn't always affected.
I'll share those bug reports below. If you're affected by these, click This affects my team, and if you don't have the option, check to make sure you don't have to login again.
We are also re-releasing the Anchor macro soon. It will allow users to create their anchor links anywhere on a page in the new editor. Keep an eye out for updates related to that. I don't believe it should fix your problem, but let me know if you notice any changes in the meantime.
Thank you, and take care!
While not an answer, I have some observations on this.
I have found that then running the latest version of Chrome (88.0.4324.190), the #anchor in a Confluence URL does not work.
However, using an earlier version of Chrome (88.0.4324.150), and using the exact same link, the anchor does work.
I am using Confluence Data Center, but I think this more an issue relating to the Chrome version.
When using the same link in Firefox (version 82.0.3), the anchor works.
Thank you for sharing your findings. The bug in particular that is affecting Daniel is specific to Confluence Cloud. If you're finding similar behavior with Confluence Data Center, you'll want to raise a new question regarding that or get it to Atlassian Support so we can raise it with the appropriate team.
Thank you again and take care!
Hi, Confluence collaborators! As part of #Confluence-Collaboratory month, we’ve created a very special Mythsbusters segment, where we're dive into an interesting myth and uncover the truth behind i...
