By default, this extension will generate the following HTML markup for TYPO3 content element headers:

    <h1 id="c35-section-of-interest" class="">
        This is the header of an interesting part of my article

        <!-- This link is only rendered if 'Set link to #anchor' is activated -->
        <a class="headline-anchor" href="#c35-section-of-interest">#</a>

As you can see, the fragment identifier is used as an id attribute in HTML. This id can then be referenced in a link.

Potential issue


A URL fragment could accidentally match the id of an element in the website’s HTML template (e.g. “#main-navigation”). This template-related identifier could be styled with CSS, or be accessed with JavaScript. Most likely, this would end in unexpected side effects.

By adding the uid of the current TYPO3 content element, we’ll circumvent this potential issue.


You can remove or adapt the prefix of the fragment identifier in the Fluid templates.
