Add Anchor ID to Text

Did this ever become a reality?

I can see deep links to Headings working in my TOS. However, when I try to create deep link to inline elements, such as span or anchors, the ID is stripped from the tag, making the link useless.

Is it only possible to link to header elements?

I’m pretty sure it works?

If you tap on the header above a link icon should appear on the left.

I also use eg. <a name="anchor"></a>, and they work too.

how are you generating the link and the anchor. I’m trying to follow the usage in the terms of service table of contents. When I save the post and use the dev inspector to look at the code I can see that the tag has persisted but the attributes have been removed.

For the headers I just use the # markdown code for header, and the forum does the rest.

And then when I grab the link from then icon I get

I’m afraid I don’t use them in tocs (though I thought the TOC also did them automatically for you based on the same principle?)

OK. thanks for the explanation. I’ve been able to reproduce that and it’s working.
