Markdown anchors

TIL how to use anchors in Markdown documents. I needed to use this in a long blog post in my Octopress blog and was stymied.

As usual, I found the answer on Stack Overflow.

1
2
3
Beam me [up](#enterprise), Scotty

<a id="enterprise"></a>

It’s a great way to move around in longer content.

2014-03-03: I no longer publish using Octopress; but this should work in most cases where Markdown is used. Bitbucket is a notable exception. For Github wiki, you’ll need something like:

1
# <a name="heading1" /> Heading 1 #

and for the link to that anchor:

1
[link to heading1](#heading1)
