Solution for "flexible" hyperlinks (absolute -> relative): Need different url for a) sub page and b) sub page within parent page


I have three documents

  • one parent page and
  • two included sub pages
    • sub page A
    • sub page B

sub page A has a hyperlink to (a headline within) sub page B.

This hyperlink should be "flexible" in the following sense:

  1. When I open sub page A and click the hyperlink it should go to to sub page B
  2. When I open the parent page (which has sub page A included) and click the same hyperlink now it should stay on the parent page and just jump to the right space of the included sub page B


  • version 1 works with [name of sub page B#name of headline]
  • version 2 works with [name of parent page#name of headline] or [#name of headline]

Is there some solution that can unite these two different URLs, perhaps a macro that can be included into the parent page and just filters out the first part of all hyperlinks?

That is probably a little too far fetched. So let's consider this one closed.
