I develop an open source application under the SourceForge web. I would like to be able to link to anchors (headline ids) inside a wiki page. The Markdown Syntax Guide does not mention how to do that. I looked at the HTML code of one of my existing wiki pages and there are no ids assigned to headlines by default.

I suppose there might be a way to do what I want as this seems to be an important feature. Besides, the Markdown Syntax Guide itself has ids assigned.


You can use standard HTML to insert an anchor to the text:

<span id="myHeading">My heading</span>

and then link to it like this:

[My heading](./#myHeading)
