[edit] [purge] Template-info.png Template documentation



The template {{anchor}} inserts one or more HTML anchors in a page. Those locations can then be linked to using [[#link|...]] syntax.


1. {{anchor|foo}}

could be linked to with [[#foo|...]] from within the same article,
or it could be linked to with [[articlename#foo|...]] from other articles and from redirects.

2. Anchors can be more suitable for inter-article linking than section titles are. For example,

==Section title==
Here, links via [[articlename#foo]] would remain valid even if the section were renamed.

3. The template can be used to create up to ten anchors with a single call. For example,

will create three anchors that can then be linked to with [[#foo]], [[#bar]] and [[#baz]].
Specifying more than 10 anchors will cause an error message to be displayed.


  • Anchor names that contain # (hash), | (pipe), = (equal) will not work as expected. Most other characters, including white space and punctuation are not a problem.
  • Anchors cannot be placed in the middle of other wiki syntax. For example, ==Heading{{anchor|foo}}== will not work.
  • The template can create a maximum of 10 anchors. Specifying more than 10 anchors will result in an error message.
  • Care should be taken to ensure that names are on a single line: For example,
will probably not work as expected.
  • Anchor names should be unique (with respect to all heading titles and additional anchors) on each page; multiple anchors won't work as expected since the #links will always go to the first anchor with that name.
  • Unlike section headings, anchors may not work on some (very old) browsers. This is because section headings are tagged with the more backward-compatible <a name="heading" id="heading"></a>. Such tagging cannot be achieved with templates.
