Template-info.svg Documentation The documentation below is transcluded from Template:Anchor/doc. (edit | history)

Use this template to create an HTML anchor at a point on a page. Anchors allow linking to a specific line on a page, which the client browser will automatically scroll to.


{{ anchor | <anchor name> | toc = 1–6/y/yes (optional) }}

First unnamed parameter

Name of the anchor.


If this parameter is set, an invisible heading will be added, for linking from the table of contents. The level of the heading can be passed as the parameter's value (1 through 6); it will default to 3 if anything else is passed.

Linking to anchors

Once an anchor is created, a link can be directed to it by adding a # symbol to the page name, followed by the anchor name, e.g. [[Page name#Anchor name]]
