Re: Links to certain subtitles


I happened to supervise a bachelor thesis on this topic.

See info here:

Here is the source code:

The main aim was different (see abstract), but it pretty much forced Jan (the student) to implement direct links to headings as well.

Bad news: he was unable to implement it as a plug-in and had to modify the core. At the end there are two types of headings: linkable and non-linkable (for backwards compatibility).

It is probably up to Jaap if he would like to inspect the code and merge it into the main branch.

I am not sure what does Jan do these days and whether he would be willing to participate.

Best wishes,

One more thing I'd like to add:

Even Wikipedia does already support my request, as you can jump from the
table of contents to the named subtitles resp. (sub)paragraphs.

Have a nice day!


Zitat von Colin Tedford <colin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>:

basically you are saying that you would like to be able to set a link to
any word within any page.  Is that correct?

I think Sebastian wants to link to headings (as one can do, for
example, at
WIkipedia), not any word. As far as I know this isn't possible, but I
I'm wrong because it would be useful.
