on our wiki pages we have a lot of anchor hyperlinks that were created using the old wiki syntax:
In the old confluence version these hyperlinks worked fine. After exporting the pages to PDF the hyperlinks
After the upgrade to version 4.3.2 this only works partly:
Now I am searching for explanations.
Does anybody know if anything has changed about hyperlinks? Or about the css? Has version 4.3.2 a different confluencedefaultpdf.css? Or is there anything else that I might have overlooked or that has changed?
I tried to break the whole thing down and simplify it a bit:
Could it be that linking to an anchor on another confluence page just does not fully work?
I recognized that there is a description at Linking to an anchor or heading. But when I follow this instruction and enter a combination of pagename#anchorname at "Edit Link > Advanced > Link:" the information seems to get lost and when I try to open and edit the link again the input field is empty again. For all other links this is not the case.
Also, the description unterneath the input field only says "To insert a link to a new page, type in the desired page title. To insert an anchor link, type #anchorname" but does not mention the combination of new page and anchor.
And after exporting my confluence pages to PDF all other links turn into internal references within the PDF whereas the pagename#anchorname links turn into http links to the confluence html pages.
All this seems to me as if the pagename#anchorname links could not be resolved properly thus creating these strange results.
Again, any ideas are more than welcome. Unfortunately all my documents are built upon using anchored links for table of contents and cross references and not solving this would mean a lot of extra work for me.
No, I didn't find a solution. And I don't really know how to go on from here knowing that it is a known bug: Does it make sense to wait for a (possible) fix or is it better to start reworking the pages right away?
Same page links should still work, though. Are you sure you have the same problem?
Hi Steffen, probably not the same, but also a major issue for us (https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/110353/upgrade-to-confluence-4-3-broke-the-links-to-headings-on-same-page). I was hoping your solution will give me an idea on how to solve mine :-)
I cannot wait for a fix, so I will have to fix it manually, nasty thing is, I cannot search for the links - I have no idea where in the THOUSANDS of pages we have used them :-(.
