No matter what I do, I cannot get links to headers on the same page to work. Same is true for links to anchors. I can enter the values in Link dialog, but the resulting link does not allow me to go actually go anywhere. The only available fields in edit more are "Edit" and "Unlink".

In the image below, you'll use the portion after the hash, but put in a hash (#) of your own between the page name and the section you want to link to.
For example, to make a link to this section from another page I would use UsefulSQLQueries#Read-onlyqueries as the Link.

To make a link to this header in the link editor, I just strip the space out between the words and throw a hash in front (generically #SectionTitle ):
If you're still having trouble and even the Table of Content links aren't working, I'd:
