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.)
To use anchors, standard links work:
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
