Page Name automatically added to anchor issue


I'm experiencing 2 issues:

1 - the pagename#anchorname setup leads to older versions of pages. Would need a workaround for this since page edits are consistent in my place of work.

2 - I'm seeing my '#anchor name' setup automatically being changed to the 'pagename#anchorname' setup. Which I don't need when setting up an anchor on the same page (as per my understanding).

Example: Page name - "How to Drive". Anchor name - "Further Reading"

I create the anchor, then link the text by inputting:

Link - #Further Reading
Link Text - Further Reading

When I update, the live page shows "see Further Reading" as expected.

Time passes, some changes are made to other text on the page. Adding of new sentences, editing sentence structures. Not touching the anchors or the links.

Later on, I see on the live page "see How to Drive#Further Reading". Clicking this link leads to a previous version of the page (hence issue #1 above).

Meaning that the page name is being automatically added to my basic anchor name. Is there a way to prevent the system from adding the page name to my anchor?
