Page structure

Sections and headings

You can divide your document into sections and subsections. Each section begins with a heading and continues up to the next heading on the same level or a higher level.

Links to sections

An anchor (the section's identifier on the page) is created automatically for each section of the document. Anchors are used for linking directly to page sections.

By default, the anchor is the name of the section without spaces. For instance, My section will have the anchor mysection. You can manually define the anchor when formatting a section:

To insert a link to the section, append this anchor to the page address after #:

How to find out what a section's anchor is

When you hover the mouse over the heading, it displays the § symbol. To get the value of the anchor:

  1. Click the § symbol next to the heading.

  2. Open the browser address bar. The anchor is shown at the end of the address after #.

Hide a section behind a cut

You can collapse certain sections of your document by default:

===+ This heading has a collapsed section behind it

In this case, all the page content up to the end of the section is hidden (in other words, everything that comes before the next header that is on the same level or a higher level).

    Tip. The order of numbers in the markup does not affect the final list numbering. However, it is easier to work with the source text when the list elements are numbered in order.
