Wiki Anchors now supported!

  • I am glad to say that the wiki now supports anchors! see  http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?TextFormattingRules#anchor for details. 

    To set an anchor add the following on a blank line above where you want to set the anchor. (usually just above the header is a good place.)

      [#anchor] 

    To use anchors, standard links work:
    http://popfile.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?HowTos#configmailclients

    It will obviously take a while to set anchors throughout the site, but this will really help improve the documentation.  I've made a modest start on this and will keep chipping away.

      Cool! That's indeed very, very useful.

      What happened? Was that a hidden feature? Or did you use some X-files technique to make our usemod copy support that feature?

      • No, I didn't do anything--I just noticed this "buried treasure" in the wiki notes.  I suspect it is a new feature.

        The only downside to it is that it seems to break the convention of []'s slightly.  If you use the Intra-wiki style link, e.g.  [[/HowTo#anchorname | HOWTO ]]   the link isn't right so you have to use fully qualified links e.g. http://popfile.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?POPFileDocumentationProject/HowTo#anchorname

        Seems like a small price to pay to me.

      They have been there all along.

      I used them on this page http://popfile.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?HowTos/AllPlatformsRequirePerl

      for the "walktru" links
