Dom added the h's to my suggestion... and I've been trying to figure out
the simplest way to avoid all this link-confusion in one fell swoop
I really, really, really don't like the idea of using the titles as
anchors, because of how much you lose.
Here's an idea... A wikipage, say, Site.TOC, organized AS a TOC:
*![[Group.Page#h1 | A Good Header]]
**!!![[Group.Page#h6.3a.1 | Another One]]
**!!![[Group.Page#h6.3a.2 | A Keeper]]*
So when a page is saved, this file is referred to.
------If a heading is added, so is a new reference (see the 'a' above).
------If the heading is deleted, the reference is deleted also.
------If the heading is changed (I don't know how to easily check this),
the reference is updated, but the anchor kept.
------If the anchor is deleted, it is added again.
Sort of like a Recent Changes for the whole site! I think this takes
care of most of the problems, with the added bonus of a perfect TOC.
Even better- you can use (:include to add just the sections you want to
another page... However, it does require editing/searching TWO pages
every time you edit ONE.
Just an idea, anyway.
