Linking to a section of an article

Sometimes it is preferable to refer to a section of a page when linking, rather than to the whole page. You can create a link to any subheading on any page in Wikipedia by including a # followed by the subheading at the end of a link.

For example: Wikipedia:Community portal#Help out.

In all section links, be sure to use a piped link for readability.

Using a piped link, the previous example looks like this: Help out.

If a section title changes, rather than going red/inactive, the link will lead to the top of the linked page.

To add this auto-updating template to your user page, use
{{tip of the day}}
