The Anchor macro allows you to add a target to a specific part of a page so that a link can be added to jump the reader to that section. These can be especially useful for allowing your readers to navigate to specific parts of a long document. Anchors are invisible to the reader when the page is displayed.
Use the Anchor macro
To add the Anchor macro:
- In the Confluence editor, select > View more
- Browse or search for "anchor" and select it
- Select Insert
You can also type / onto the page to bring up the same list you'd see by selectingfrom the toolbar.
After you've inserted the anchor, you can create a link to an anchor on a page.
To edit the Anchor macro:
- Select the macro placeholder. The floating toolbar appears.
- Select Edit. The right panel opens.
- Modify the parameters. Your changes are saved as you go.
- Resume editing the page, and the panel closes.
Wiki markup example
Wiki markup is only supported in the legacy editor.
Wiki markup is useful when you need to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.
Macro body: None.
