Permalinks with anchor

Are there any way to generate a share link URL with anchor as a permalink?

  • Instead of using naive URL pages/viewpage.action?pageId=... , share link URL is recommended to share because pageId will be changed as page version incremented. Share URL is permalink for the page.
  • To navigate specific position in page, anchor which ToC macro generates is used.
  • Regarding both, I'm searching for the way to generate a share link URL with anchor like https://confluence/x/cYTy#some_position_in_page

Hello Ryota,

It's not possible to automatically generate the link, but you should be able to simply add a hashtag # and the name of the anchor after the Tiny URL, as in your example.

So:

Let's take a tiny URL for one Atlassian page: https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/siAC

If I take the hashtag and anchor name from that page (#Anchors-Step1Step1:Createtheanchor) and add it to the tiny URL, you end up with the tiny URL which has a working anchor tag: https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/siAC#Anchors-Step1Step1:Createtheanchor. This URL will now lead you to the anchor in that page, as you can check with this example.

Are you able to link to your anchors in this way? 

Kind Regards,
Shannon

Hi Shannon,

It does not work in my case. Do you have ideas what may be wrong and what should I check? 

PS: tiny links and anchor name double checked and they are correct.

 

Thank you,

Hello Oleksii,

Can you show us how you're building your links, and what happens when you try to navigate to them?

What version of Confluence are you using?

Is it possible to create a permalink to a confluence page, e.g now my URL depends on the page title, if my page title was to change, my URL changes too.

 

I want to link confluence page in email templates, and in order to avoid manual (impossible) updating in the future, I just wanna create a permanent link for each page so even if I change the title, the URL doesnt change?

Hi Tamas,

The original question here was related to using anchors with the permalinks but your question doesn't mention them.

Are you trying to link to a specific page, or do you want to link to a section on the page?

If you just want to link to the page then you just have to use the tiny link. You can find this from looking at the page information.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Shannon
