Setting anchors

  • headers automatically become html anchors, which can be linked to.
  • The <a> tag is not allowed in MediaWiki, so we can't do the <a name="link here">, but we can do the "id" html attribute to almost any existing tag. For example, <div id="what_to_link_to">text</div> or <div id="what_to_link_to"/>text.

Referencing anchors

inside a regular wiki link [[page#anchor_name|shown_up_as]], include the hash sign (#) and the header name or the id tag name as you have written it.

Linking to a position in an external page

The HTML source of the target page needs to have <a name=..> or <.. id=..> at the target item as anchor to link to. Thus linking to a position in an external page for which this is not the case yet, one needs control over the target page, or cooperation of one who has.
